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.

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!

It’s time to Clear, Cleanse, Create and Celebrate under the immense full moon tonight. A super moon – the first of its kind in 68 years.

CLEANSE  . . .  swim, bathe, use a sage smudge stick, visualise any negative vibes dissolving  .  .  .  CREATE  . . .  use positive affirmations and your favourite Combardis Mist to create a space of manifestation and joy – Abundant Life or Highest Potential will do!  . . .  CELEBRATE  . . . Give yourself a high five!

“I welcome in new, positive energy and graciously release all that no longer serves me”.

Using Combardis mists to enhance one’s sense of vitality and wellbeing


How do Combardis essential oils mists enhance one’s sense of vitality and wellbeing? 

The act of simply pausing for a moment to mindfully spray the mist helps to bring about a sense of calm and balance. It is in this moment that the breath slows to inhale the scent and there is an opportunity to just notice. Creating a mindful moment helps us to slow down and observe our feelings without judgement. This practice alone can assist in reducing stress and balancing the emotions.

On a physical level, when the mist is inhaled, the plant essence is immediately absorbed into the body. The aroma sends a signal to the limbic system which is the centre of memory and emotion. Essential oils therefore can have a powerful effect on the mind, mood and emotions. They may energise, calm, empower, inspire or simply nurture and comfort.

Taking it one step further, when essential oils are used with positive affirmations, the ‘living energy’ of the scent can help to magnify the intention. Affirmations have been created for each mist to enhance the benefits of each blend. For example – Harmony Mist – “I am connected to the deep sense of peace within me.” 

Our goal is to provide a simple yet effective tool using the incredible benefits of essential oils to create a positive mind-body connection and hence one’s feeling of happiness and contentment.

Finding inner calm and peace

Recently I have been challenged more than ever to find that place of inner calm and peace. I have felt overwhelmed, impatient, frustrated … I’ve given unnecessary and unproductive thoughts far too much attention and have really had to work hard to focus my attention inwards to restore the balance.

The reality is I know that when I find that place of stillness I become calmer and more relaxed and therefore more efficient. I gain clarity and focus and suddenly those feelings of overwhelm don’t have so much power of me.

I am so grateful every day for the self care practices I have integrated into my daily routine and the resources available to me to support my journey. I’d love to share some of these with you, and introduce you to some amazing women who, by sharing their talents & insights are enriching the lives of so many.

If you are feeling tired, overwhelmed, stuck or simply out of balance know that you are not alone and that you are completely supported.

Self care is a divine responsibility.

With love,

Karen X
