Finding clarity in our fast paced lives can often prove to be a challenge.

Allowing ourselves space to create moments of stillness can feel indulgent when there are so many things to ‘do’. However it is precisely when we feel overwhelmed and busy that we benefit enormously from moments of stillness. Simply pausing to take a long, deep and cleansing breath slows down the nervous system resulting in a more calm and relaxed state.

Pausing to take a deep breath is a mindfulness practice as it involves paying attention to the present moment.

Mindful moments help us to create space in our lives, softness in our body and clarity of mind. Mindfulness also helps us to slow down a little and appreciate the ‘little things’ – the things that make life worth living.

To create a mindful moment and inspire clarity simply close your eyes, spray the mist lightly over the crown of your head and body and take a deep cleansing breath.

I allow my mind to be still and the way forward becomes clear.



Enhance your mindfulness practice

Support your mindfulness practice with the therapeutic benefits of an essential oil mist.

We all know meditation and mindfulness help calm the mind, body and spirit allowing us to be present and to tune in to the beauty and possibility in each moment … however, in our fast paced, demanding world full of distraction we often need some additional help.

The balancing qualities of essential oils and the soothing effects of natural aromas help the body and mind to settle into a state of mindfulness.

Keeping a mist handy throughout the days serves as a useful reminder to stop and take a mindful moment!

In a world full of doing, doing, doing, it’s important to take a moment to just breathe, to just be.


Featuring Harmony mist

We all know that life gets busy and at these times it’s more important than ever to take the time to stop and just breathe. Harmony mist was created for these times of overwhelm and for when life feels a little (or a lot!) out of balance.

The heart warming essential oils infused in this blend help to reconnect the mind and heart allowing you to move forward in a calmer, more centred state. Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Lavender combine with Cedarwood and citrus oils to soothe the senses and bring harmony to the mind and body.

Using the mist mindfully …

Simply pause for a moment and spray the mist over the crown of your head and around your body. Breathe the natural scent in deeply, repeat the affirmation and just be. 

“I am connected to a deep sense of peace within me.”

Taking the time to just breathe is a simple, mindful self care practice that impacts the nervous system in the most positive way. When we take a moment to be still, to fill our lungs completely and then let it all out we allow our muscles to relax and our mind and body to be grounded in the present moment.

Set an alarm to stop and take a deep breath every hour and notice the impact it has on your day.



Mind Heart Connect Event

Inspiration in a bottle to support this wonderful event coming up May 5-7 on the Gold Coast, Queensland

Last chance to get tickets is NOW … http://www.mindheartconnect.com/

I was reminded of how much I was influenced by Dr Joe Dispenze the last time I saw him in Sydney as I re-read an old Combardis blog post …. ‘The people who have positive changes in their health have also changed their thinking’.

Be in the presence of Dr Joe Dispenza, Australia’s Dr Peta Stapleton leading clinical research at Bond University in the area of EFT/tapping, Dr Lori Leydon – doing amazing work in the field of EFT in Rwanda, and many more incredible speakers who are helping global healing on so many levels.

We are delighted to have created a mist especially for the event and will be both attending the event and exhibiting our beautiful mists and wellbeing kits.

Combardis Aromatic Mists originated to assist in inspiring positive thoughts and emotions. By using a beautiful essential oil blend mindfully the benefits of the essential oils are magnified.

A simple mindful exercise is to spray the mist over your body and personal space, breathe the scent in deeply and then repeat a simple positive affirmation. By using the mist in regular mindful ritual you will be engaging in positive thoughts and subsequent positive emotions.Positive emotions = happy and healthy life. 🙂



What is your Anchor?

We all know the power of the mind and the importance of positive thoughts to create our reality.

However to expect that our thoughts will always be positive is quite unrealistic. In fact we need to experience negative emotions to allow ourselves to dig deeper into our underlying thoughts and feelings in an attempt to learn more about ourselves and how we can learn and evolve.

When a painful thought, experience or memory comes up we can use an anchor to help acknowledge the situation and then bring our awareness to a place of mindfulness.

What are the anchors you use on a daily basis to bring you back to the present moment or to stay focussed on a goal?

The breath is a reliable anchor as is doing a 1 minute body scan.

We can also engage our senses . . . an essential oil aromatic mist is a wonderfully reliable anchor – it works as a mindfulness tool yet delivers the benefits of pure essential oils.

By repeating an affirmation we also work to bring about new positive thought patterns.


Find an anchor that works for you when the wind of mindlessness blows.


Using essential oils with intention

Intention is the practice of holding in our minds that which we desire in the physical world. To make intention work for you, you don’t need to be a Buddhist, a Taoist, or a mystic. You only need to recognise that anything is possible, that the mind-body connection is a powerful one.

The universe is malleable and flowing and is in a constant state of change. If you believe in the possibility of change you can make intention work for you. Intention is simply a tool that can bring about change. With clear intent we can be more deliberate in our behaviour to achieve a desired result.

The use of essential oils together with intention is a very powerful combination and can restore balance and harmony to your body and life. The ‘living energy’ of a scent can invigorate your intention.

Affirmations are statements we can use with intention. Words are powerful and when used with intention or mindfulness have the ability to form new clusters of “positive thought” neurons.

Each Combardis Aromatic Mist is sealed with an affirmation. If the affirmation resonates with you, repeat it daily whilst using the mist (or as often as your desire).

To use the mist, spray the mist lightly over the crown of your head and body breathe it in deeply.

Even when the scent has passed the positive effects of the essential oils will linger.

Practice as a morning ritual and notice the effect it has on your day.

The art of Christmas gift giving

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”  -Mother Theresa

It’s that time of year again where we start thinking about the festive season and gift giving. This can bring feelings of excitement and joy or complete overwhelm!!

Undoubtedly, we all love to give gifts, the gift of giving is as important as receiving, however if you are like me you can get to this time of year and think I can’t really imagine having more “things” in my house. I don’t want to sound ungrateful or diminish gift giving in any way however sometimes we end up with so much more than we really ‘need’.

With this in mind I’m approaching this Christmas with the idea of replacing some of the more traditional gifts with something more thoughtful and meaningful. These may be gifts of experience, adventure, time, gifts to charities or opportunities to just ‘be’.

I’d love to think that Combardis fits the category of thoughtful and meaningful ‘gifts’. Gifts that show you have thought about someone and provide an opportunity to inspire the positive. A gift that may be used in mindful ritual to bring about a sense of lightness and wellbeing. At Combardis we also give back to the community and support charitable organisations working to make a difference in the world.

When buying gifts I choose to support small, sustainable businesses and local crafters and makers who put love and care into all that they do. In this way we can help enrich the lives of others also.

Keep in mind though, gifts of time and love are truly all we need and they don’t cost a thing. 🙂

Happy Festive season!
