People of Jersey. The time for change is NOW.

Unite with us to create a better island for ALL!

Stand with us at our event:


In rallying support from our islanders with our movement.

On Monday 15th April 1pm – 2.15pm, Royal Square.

Join our facebook group to discover ways we can live more environmentally conscious together.

The aim of this group is to gather, unite and mobilise as many groups and individuals here in the Channel Islands with passion and concern for the environment and our future to affect change as a part of a global uprising. As a group under the Extinction Rebellion flag we aim to follow their principles and values as well as working towards their 3 demands by taking action from the 15th April.



1- The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.

2-The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.

3- A national Citizen’s Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose. We are in an age of abrupt climate breakdown & ecocide. It’s time to take action. You can join us – this is your movement & future too.

The iTOVI Scanner is a wonderful addition to your family’s wellbeing and an invaluable piece of technology for enhancing your wellbeing business.


If you choose to purchase an iTOVI Health and Wellness Scanner (through me on the link below) this January 2020, you will be rewarded with a 1/2 hour Back Massage or 1/2 hour Reflexology session with me!




Whether your goal is to improve the wellness of yourself or others, or if you’re interested in building your business, the iTOVi handheld, portable Scanner is here to help by providing a personalized report of oils and supplements for you and your clients.

Why I love it:

  • I use it regularly for my own wellbeing, for my massage clients, for my essential oil wholesale customers, my essential oil workshop participants and potential customers.

  • It is also invaluable with my 4 year old daughter when she is unwell and for younger children who cannot tell you which oils are resonating with them.

  • It also lets you know which supplements are best for you right now and I find it to be very accurate and in accordance with their medical history (if I know the history that is).



The ITOVI scanner is taking the essential oil world by storm.



OR contact me TODAY to try it for yourself. 

THIS is how you can get your OWN scanner RIGHT NOW:


YOU MUST PURCHASE THROUGH THIS WEBPAGE on the link below (not the main iTOVI site)


You can either buy it outright or take up a monthly subscription (which starts at £31 per month plus a one off payment of £40). This figure reduces, and then eventually earns you money as others get their scanners through you).

Learn about subscription costs and REFERRAL perks here.


It can be calibrated to all the major top end essential oil companies including Young Living and DoTERRA

Lets Talk the iTOVI SCANNER


The Technology:

The portable scanner allows you and your clients to receive personalized reports. How? The iTOVi scanner uses innovative and institutionally recognized technology to measure the changes in the electrical conductivity of the skin to stimuli. The scanner identifies these changes and ranks products in order by the strongest responses.

Natural Migraine Relief


After many many years of suffering the dreaded M word, I have managed to not only massively reduce the frequency and duration of these migraines I get, but also remedy them when they are in action (the hardest part – once they start they have a life force of their own which is adamant to play its full term out!).

My story:

I think I was around 9 or 10 when I started getting frequent migraines. I had suffered the odd terrible headache and possibly migraine before that, but this was the age I remember they really put their hooks into my life. I relied heavily on painkillers and off course darkened rooms with no noise.

Back then I actually had a diet massively lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables and instead heavily processed foods. I literally never drank water. My main drink supply during childhood was squash, or later on it was sweet soda drinks like coke and irn bru.

My digestion wasn’t so good but I don’t remember much about that and didn’t have chronic symptoms that I remember until my teens when I started to become bloated and have bad acne and hormonal issues.

It has taken this long to find my triggers and do something long term about them (I’m now 42). Medication stopped working for me many years ago, it was hit and miss and I officially binned the painkillers about 3-4 years ago.

What works for me to prevent them:

Lots of water

A diet FULL of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Back neck and should massages

Good sleep

Foods I have reduced massively and are my triggers:


Smoked Salmon (this was the only processed food I was eating)

Fatty Foods/Rich foods/Too many different combination foods

Cooked tomatoes

Red Wine

(These are all foods which are high histamine – research high histamine foods to see which others you might need to avoid or reduce).

What I do when I have a migraine starting:

I use doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils – the purest on the planet: Peppermint and Lavender almost neat around my entire hairline, forehead and back of the neck every hour. Some people also swear by Copaiba and also Frankincense. Also a blend that doTERRA do called Past Tense is also very effective and worth a try. One size does not fit all so its good to experiment and see. Click here to enter my shop, or send me an email to to arrange a 1-2-1 consultation in person or on skype.

Very Cold Coconut Water (2 litres to be drunk within a couple of hours of each other) – you can watch the video below and see why this works.  I came across this accidentally as I found I was CRAVING coconut water and it seems there’s scientific evidence as to why this helps!

Water with 2 drops of CPTG Peppermint Oil

A strong black coffee


There is a link with people that get migraines and not having enough GABA in the diet. Research this and see if this could be you.

Structural issues and more serious issues can also cause migraines (especially new ones out of the blue), so its good to check this out too. I know regular migraines are also a nice preventative for me.

Also, see Dr Michelle Stanton’s Research and finding into Migraines on YouTUBE.

This talks a lot of the importance of electrolyte balance and the hyper excitability of a migraine brain. Interesting.

4th Trimester love reflections

Wow. Just taken back by an old blog on Facebook that I just had to share when Suki turned 3 months!!

With such light we arrive!

The first 3 months of a baby’s life …. are in some traditions referred to as the 4th trimester in pregnancy. In a few days Suki and I will be leaving this delicate and watery realm as she turns 3 months old. I’m still so blissed out at having this sweet human life transcend me into motherhood. And so eternally grateful. Every day I’m in wonderment at her and more in love with her. How blessed we have been. Many people have made a huge difference to me during this 3 month journey. I know I can knock modern healthcare professionals, but the staff at the hospital were mainly amazing. One doctor, Kate, showed such care towards me as I was given a blood transfusion, and countless midwives who took care of me were just awesome. I can’t remember hardly any of their names now because of the other realm I was in at the time! Amy, taking me to hospital, being with me through the journey of Suki arriving and being SUCH a support in countless ways… And since then, so many sweet friends dropping by food, doing washing up for me, giving me massages, generous gifts, being with me and my tears in my washed out tender moments – reminding me of my ok-ness. I have tried to hold strong to keeping this 3 month transit as quiet a time as I can .. and try not to castrate myself when I make mistakes or feel inadequate. In this modern world, I know many women do not give themselves the opportunity to rest and receive after birth and I wish more than anything that new mothers get to experience what I did and have support for their tenderness at hand. Rest woman, rest. Be. Listen. Feel. Open. And know you will never experience anything more touching and precious. I would have plummetted into the cold and dark postnatal depression if it hadn’t been for allowing my vulnerable voice to be heard by close friends and my fairy godmother so that the clenched anxieties, exhausted embodied emotions could be seen and released. And they are still being heard, as I continue this intense, sweet voluptuous road .. and then they are passed into the wind with each sigh. What a delicate and sacred time for a mother and her own inner child …. all the facets of woman show up to dance their stories here … as I tend to the earth beneath Suki and her beginning in this life … <3

Transforming the Menopause Stigma

Transforming the Menopause Stigma

With Melanie Wartho

This workshop is open to women of all ages and will deal specifically with our time before, during and after menopause.

The menopause, like menstruation, is seen as a burden, something that we shouldn’t discuss except in negative and unhealthy terms.

The intention of this workshop is to dispel the myths surrounding menopause and to help us to find the immensity of the new powers as healers and grandmothers that we have access to, when we know how to find it.

Too many times have we heard comments from women about their fear of the menopause before they have it along with women who see the menopause as a bad thing and therefore relate to any symptoms they may have as purely difficult, and those women who believe that now they are menopausal, or that when the menopause comes, their life has no meaning and that they are barren and therefore worthless with a life that will be empty.

Now is the time to relearn the positive truths about ourselves as menopausal and post menopausal women.

This workshop is specifically for you if you recognise any of the above feelings either in yourself or someone close.

DATE: Weds 7th November and Weds 14th November

TIME: 7pm til 9.30pm

VENUE: Windyridge House, First Tower, St Helier, JE2 3HR – Parking is limited, please contact for car sharing or check facebook page

COST: £20 per night or £35 for both events in the series


About Melanie Wartho:
Mel has been living and working in South America for 23 years, during this time she has travelled extensively in Argentina, lived in Bolivia, travelled through Central America and lived in Ecuador and ultimately Peru. It is during her time in Ecuador that she first chose to work closely with local Shamen and healers for her own personal healing, as she progressed she began to facilitate the healing of others and learn more about the old traditions and the wisdom of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. She has been working with native healers and shamen now for 13 years. She embarked upon a Vision Quest following the tradition of the Lakota people and has also completed 4 years of Sundance, she has studied with a Shuar healer in the jungle of Ecuador, and ultimately has spent 2 years working with and learning from Shamen in the jungle of Peru. She brings with her a lot of the knowledge and wisdom of the people who are still very connected to nature, working with plant medicines and listening to what nature has to tell us.



Essential oil emergence

sed for over 3500 years, the immune system that gives plants their plant power, is finally beginning to get the recognition it deserves. Taken to a higher level altogether with the purity standards set by doTERRA, their healing potential has become accessible worldwide and more and more over the counter medicines are being ditched in favour of this natural medicine.

These days we really do have a choice to learn more about how they can help us personally so we can become empowered in our health and wellbeing.

If you use oils or want to learn how to bring them into your life on a daily basis to reap the incredible benefits then this is a great opportunity to bump up your knowledge or get you off on the right foot.

SISTERMOON – Gifts of Ancestors


Friday 27th July

“The Gifts of Ancestors”

Join our beautiful sacred space to dance, share and love together at full moon time. Each gathering we focus on a different theme to help us heal and rise the feminine energy. This month we dance with our ancestors and the gifts they bring us.
Our upcoming Sun in Leo and Full Moon in Aquarius Lunar Eclipse moon is ripe with potential for us to create transformation in our lives and the world around us. They give us the opportunity to create sacred space and consciously integrate shadow aspects and inner and outer challenges. We will use the energy to acknowledge the deep well of support we have behind us and the journey our ancestors took to bring us where we are today. We’ll give this attention and care to whatever is arising or feeling unintegrated in our lives and prepare ourselves for the next chapter.

What could happen if us women gave ourselves the time and energy to dive in and explore our power and possibilities in a sacred supportive space?

Our gatherings have been a sweet respite for us women in our busy and patriarchal modern world. Dance is a magical portal to ride us into our journey into healing and rising our feminine as it fully supports our feminine nature and unfolding healing processes. In the realm of conscious dance with the intention of love and integration, transformation happens.
This isn’t a place where we’ll be impressing each other with our dance moves. We will drop in deeply to our bodies and our space will support authentic healing movement and our own unfolding creative expression.
We also use some yummy essential oils to support and nurture us, and nibble on delicious raw chocolate!
Date: Friday 27th July
Venue: The Bridge Centre, St Saviour, Jersey
Facilitator: Maria Barnicoat
Time: 7.00 -9.15pm (please arrive at least 10min before)
Bring: Notebook and blanket. Pictures/objects of past relatives and ancestral connections
Cost: £15 – see ticket link to book
About the facilitator: Maria has been holding spaces for meditation, dance and reflection for over 10 years and working with her own spiritual journey for much longer, and particularly feels passionate about helping to create sisterhood, empowerment and connection in women and in our community and the world around us.
