Hi I’m Serina, I am a medical herbalist and naturopath.

I began creating skincare with my sister when I was 9 years old, trying our best to make wonderful smelling perfumes, however sadly for us they never quite came out the way we envisioned!  

The love for making my own skincare however grew and through my teen years I made all of my own hair and body masks and what ever else I could find recipes for. 

By my late teens-early twenties, I was working in a natural skin care shop helping the customers and training the other staff in the benefits of essential oils for therapeutic purposes and the beneficial uses in skincare.

I continued to follow my passion by making oil based skincare in 2006 that I used throughout my pregnancy, and this created the basis of the products I sell today.  

In my late twenties I decided to return to school and complete my Bachelor of Natural Medicine, qualifying me to become a naturopath and a medical herbalist. Partly I did this to continue my love of natural skincare but also to help people with a holistic approach to their health. 

Today with my long-time passionate love affair with natural skincare, I incorporate helping people gain insights towards incorporating better nutrition into their life. I show them how important it is to support your internal organs, as well as your skin. I now see clients as a Naturopath and Medical Herbalist helping people explore the possibilities of what glowing health internally and externally is really about. 

My passion still lies with skin, but now it includes the link with digestive health.  

I hope you enjoy my products as much as I do, and if you would like to book a Naturopathy or Medical Herbalist appointment to help support your body to optimal health please contact me.

NOURISHING YOUR SKIN

“How do I get glowing healthy skin?”

In clinic this is a common question. I often see clients for eczema, psoriasis, flaking, redness and acne; so why does this happen and how do we get glowing healthy skin?

Skin is the largest organ of the body – it is the body's coat. It protects you. It helps regulate your temperature and is what often defines us as glowing with health or off colour and unwell.

Leaky Gut Syndrome – How to Plug the Leak

Are you going round in circles trying to work out why you’re not feeling well? Are you suffering with a dry, itchy skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, your allergies out of control and basically your autoimmune system is way out of whack?

 

You could be suffering because of the many health issues associated with leaky gut syndrome.  Your digestive tract is like a net that has lots of small holes in it that keep what shouldn’t go into your blood stream out. When those holes get bigger unfortunately gluten, bad bacteria and undigested food breaks out and starts to cause damage to your health.
