  • / IMPLOSION SPIRAL TOROID BY ESCHER (1898-1972)
The torus is the fundamental form of balanced energy flow found in all sustainable systems. It's primal nature has gripped me of late, and  I thought it might be interesting and maybe soul soothing for you to ponder with me, how all that seems fragmented is, in fact, one whole. Strap yourself in, it's a bit hippie – what do you expect...
/
The Toros energy field It exist around everything: people, plants, animals, earth, sun, planets, universes. It's the creator, keeper and taker of all life. In the words of pioneering researcher Arthur Young: "The self in a toroidal Universe can be both separate and connected with everything else.”
/
Toroidal fields are essentially magnetic energy fields. For instance: The Sun is surrounded by a  large toroidal field — the heliosphere — which is embedded inside a vastly larger toroidal field encompassing the Milky Way galaxy, which again sits within the energy field of a larger universe I have no name for. Earth, with it's own toroidal field sits within the Sun's energy field. Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, eco systems, plants, animals, etc all show torus flow dynamics and are influenced by – and influence –each other. And on it goes inward into the ecosystems and organs of our bodies, the cells they’re made of, and the molecules, atoms and sub-atomic particles they are made of.
/
There is a seamlessly dynamic exchange of energy and information occurring throughout the entire cosmos. It is like gazilions of Super Marios skipping up and down from level to level, every component constantly balancing and calibrating it's energy flow And yet there is only one whole energy flow occurring throughout the entirety of it. This is what physicist David Bohm calls the 'Undivided Wholeness in Flowing Movement'.
/
We all move together, even when we think we’re not. One. Whole.

  • / POSTCARD FROM THE SYDNEY SMOKE HOUSE:
As I was holding my breath over coffee this morning, trying to take miserably small gulps of air, Christo laughed and said nothing could stop him to breathe  deeply and take it all in – even the dirt and grit of it all...
/
So on this exceptionally gloomy smoke-haze day, I'd like to share one of Christo's breathing mantras from 'THE WAY OF QIGONG – The Art And Science Of Chinese Energy Healing' by Kenneth S. Cohen:
/
No matter the circumstances, look for the six qualities of your breath and remember the millions of people who live in smog 365 days of the year:
• Is it SLOW (Man)
• Is it LONG (Chang)
• Is it DEEP (Shen)
• Is it FINE (Xi)
• Is it EVEN (Jun)
• Is it TRANQUIL (Jing)

  • / “You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty.

  • / SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON STORY: THE RITUALIST
We finally got around to introducing our interview series with the beautiful people we work with, who support us, and who inspire us. It always takes a while for stories to start interweaving and layering, but they do so eventually, making our life richer and better for it. We wanted to shine the light onto the people who help us do what we do, and show you how and why our ethos and stars are aligned
/
One such story is that of our Byron Bay exclusive stockist @shackpalace. Although, 'stockist' does not do this place justice. 'Temple of Bespoke Objects' perhaps? You get my drift, it's special alright, and we're beyond blessed to be sitting on those holy dark wood shelves, handpicked by founder and owner Samara Macchia herself, the high priestess of daily rituals and soulful objects.
/
Our interview with Samara is a beautiful Monday read, I hope will inspire you all to take more little moments each day ritualising routines and chores. Lighting a candle might be as close to prayer as a lot of us will ever get these days.
/
Up on our blog now, link is in bio, enjoy!

  • Hey there, As I’ve taken full charge of the @lepaar insta show, Christo will wield his scepter in the @nokingempire from now on.
—
He IS the Original No King. The quiet visionary magician behind the scenes, and it’s time for him to shine his sunny light on this side of our Whole.
—
It’ll be Christo‘s journey, and I can’t wait to indulge in his rich tapestry and wondrous musings. Don’t expect much hose talk - there’s only so much one can say about gardenhoses, let’s face it.

Stay or go as you please, and if you miss me, I’m just a click over at @lepaar showing you my side of Whole. Be nice to him my friends! Johanna x

  • / ENTER THE FULL MOON WOMAN
Rise with this Saturday's full Moon in badass Scorpio – woman or man, moonwalker or daydreamer, we'll all be sucker-punched by it's extroverted, tough love, Amazonian 'F@#k You' energy, that may feel a little hardcore, restless and excessive.
/
What to do? Since we're all born with only two middle fingers, consider purging and purifying through art and creation. If it's your thing, hold a smoky quartz crystal to stay connected with Mother Earth, release the onslaught of negative energy, and help heal surfacing traumas, anxiety, and overcoming addiction.
/
Creation with a side of hell raising, perhaps. Whichever way, call on your primal feminine powers for protection, 'it will never fail' x

~ Ikkyu 'Crow with No Mouth'
/
Zen master Ikkyu Sojun (1394-1481) was a Japanese monk-poet-calligrapher-musician who celebrated erotic love and attained satori (Enlightenment) upon hearing a crow call. Appointed headmaster at Daitokuji, the great temple in Kyoto, he lasted nine days before denouncing the rampant hypocrisy among the monks. He invited them to look for him in the sake parlors of the Pleasure Quarters.

  • / End-of-the-world road trip back to Sydney through thick clouds of Eucalypt smoke, and with mercurial air conditioning. Arrived thoroughly smoke-cleansed, teary-eyed and husky-voiced. Guess we should listen to the news every now and then, because that sure was a day to stay in the Valley and breathe pristine Mountain air. On the upside, all orders have been shipped, please excuse the double holiday delay. x

  • / WE ALL COME FROM THE SAME PLACE
Last day of a 2 week country holiday in our beloved Kangaroo Valley. Christo installed the roof trusses on our new workshop - thanks to @meccacoffee and Dino; I painted the whole exterior of the house the softest mushroom rose I call 'Steiner Pink' using donated leftover Porters lime wash; Sienna the teenager learned how to make pizza, lasagne and chocolate pear cake; and we had near zero screen time (yeah, us - not the teenager).
/
I also harvested all the fat green tomatoes that decided to sow themselves in the patch we sprinkled my friend Vivi's @rawsisterhood ashes last year with Ekke @i.am.alive.in.syd, and made a kick-arse green tomato chutney to celebrate her birthday yesterday. Viva la Vida beautiful girl - you’re in my heart, my thoughts, and my chutney.✌️

Epic wax sealing session today with this little stamp made for us by @kustomhaus Melbourne, and the world's best vinyl-free but ultra flammable sealing wax crafted by Herbin Paris.

Beautiful hand inked prints by Bryan Nash Gill, using remnants of tree stumps to create large scale records of trees that have been felled.

Today was such a soft, meandering Full Moon day – @openobjects.co came down to dig for clay in the river beds and held an impromptu workshop with @i.am.alive.in.syd's girls and my daughter, Christo got stuck into building the workshop, I painted the new deck and fluffed around an enormous amount of time with flower pots and baskets, then we started making green tomato chutney. And now, dinner's on the open fire, we've opened a bottle of natural wine and are catching the last light slithering down the escarpment and vanishing in the gumtrees. I'll remember this beautiful day in our little corner of this vast world, with so much gratitude. xxx

  • / Look what I found busting through the cracks of the Bondi Road foot path!
/
Smokey licorice scented Immortelle, or Helichrysum, the sleeping giant of Mediterranean herbal medicine. The name Helichrysum (from the Greek helios = sun and krysos = gold) pays tribute to the bright yellow flower heads, which are remarkably persistent in the dried plant.
/
These little gems look different to the Helichrysum Italicum we're growing in Kangaroo Valley for my ZEN MATCHA CASHMERE. Maybe they're another one of the 500 odd family members of the genus, or maybe they're just degenerated by city pollutants and glyphosate spraying, which our local council still thinks is a legit thing to do.
/
But there's change about people, and, as usual, it's coming from the community. Check out @myorganicschool for details on anti-herbicide activism, and a current motion lodged with Waverley Council.

  • Last year, Christo and I made the decision to only use wax seals on our jars because the flat surface of the lids allows us to use plastic and vinyl free sealing wax, you know, the old school pine resin kind, the one that breaks and cracks, like any good seal should when you bend it.
/
Wax seals have popped up a lot in packaging over the last years, and manufacturers have brought the bendable plastic 'wax' (is it actually still wax?) to the market so products can be shipped around the world without breaking the seals. But anyone who has ever dripped vinyl containing wax knows how toxic the fumes are and how weirdly rubbery and lacklustre the plastic seals are, compared to the exceptional quality, glossy and lustrous resin wax made in Paris by J. Herbin since 1670.
/
Oh yes, it is so much messier! You can't use one of those handy glue guns, so it's a slower process, and quite often the resin catches fire and the studio almost burns down. But hey, I'd much rather inhale space cleansing pine resin smoke and singe my eyelashes once in a while  than contribute to the single use plastic pile.

  • UN . MASK
Turns out all I needed to finish the formula for my ENZYMATIC HONEY MASKS was my mum to come visit from Germany. 
_
Being middle aged, with skin slowly venturing towards the 'mature' realm, I am no big fan of clays or charcoal on my face. I find them incredibly drying and my skin feels taught in a very uncomfortable way, and depleted of all it's naturally protecting oils. I want deep hydration with my mask, a feeling of lasting softness, intense comfort and that heavenly 'AH, LUXURY' sensation. Not a mask that dries hard on my face and flakes off, but a Spa-at-home indulgence.
_
So with the help of my alchemist mum, who taught me so much and inspired my wholistic skincare journey, I tweaked the formula to contain not only the best and purest wild raw honey of Australia, but also a fraction of the beeswax, my beloved oil extracts, medicinal raw plant powders, AND a magical potion I made called Sole. Sole is a completely sterile Himalayan crystal salt and water solution, a powerhouse of vital trace minerals that help our body transport nutrients, ensure speedy cell regeneration, balance fluid and sebum, and support hundreds of biological functions. It gives slip and that luxuriously velvet, gel-like texture to our masks and is a fantastic acne and breakout treatment.

  • UN . MASK
    Turns out all I needed to finish the formula for my ENZYMATIC HONEY MASKS was my mum to come visit from Germany. 
    _
    Being middle aged, with skin slowly venturing towards the 'mature' realm, I am no big fan of clays or charcoal on my face. I find them incredibly drying and my skin feels taught in a very uncomfortable way, and depleted of all it's naturally protecting oils. I want deep hydration with my mask, a feeling of lasting softness, intense comfort and that heavenly 'AH, LUXURY' sensation. Not a mask that dries hard on my face and flakes off, but a Spa-at-home indulgence.

Hustle aside - I am so very much feeling the emptying out today. Out of breath, out of energy, out of ideas. I've been intensely focused (or so I thought), balancing that sea-saw slide of small business, motherhood, love, work, chasing thoughts, getting stuck, dismantling, repairing, starting again... You know what I'm talking about. Forgive me, I am having a true Thank Fuck it's Friday moment. That, too, is wholistic luxury;-) Love you all, thanks for still being here, even though I haven't had the space to give you much lately. x Johanna

  • “You are aware of only one unrest;
Oh, never learn to know the other!
Two souls, alas, are dwelling in my breast,
And one is striving to forsake its brother.
Unto the world in grossly loving zest,
With clinging tendrils, one adheres;
The other rises forcibly in quest
Of rarefied ancestral spheres.
If there be spirits in the air
That hold their sway between the earth and sky,
Descend out of the golden vapors there
And sweep me into iridescent life.
Oh, came a magic cloak into my hands
To carry me to distant lands,
I should not trade it for the choicest gown,
Nor for the cloak and garments of the crown.”
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: First Part

Too early to talk Xmas presents? 
_
PRECIOUS FACE ELIXIR, SACRED TRINITY ANOINTMENT SERUM (so very Xmas), and VELVET LIP BALM. Packaged in a recycled linen-paper wrapped box with hand-applied gold wax seal. 
_
We've gone a bit next level on the eco aspect of our packaging recently by ditching the vinyl containing wax seal on our bottles for recycled paper labels. We had a LOT of emails begging us to please bring the seal back, and I was totally prepared to let these fall on deaf ears and suffer the consequences (AKA less sales), until I unearthed THIS sealing wax made with real pine resin and ground limestone, by La Societe Herbin, Maitre Cirier a Paris, since 1670. It's very hard and somewhat brittle, so won't wrap around our elixir and serum bottles, but it's perfect for gracing the lids of our balms. It also costs a bomb and takes me so much longer to drip on, but it's a joy to do and the beautiful pine fragrance of the resin imbues the studio and brings back memories of childhood pen pal letter writing. Hope you'll love. X Johanna

  • NEW MOON . RITUAL
To soften that Scorpio sting, I’m gifting one of these little votive candles today only, with all orders over $100.
_
Wildcrafted beeswax, biodynamic olive oil, sun-infused frankincense and myrrh resin extract, and vanilla extract. Not a single drop of essential oil or soy wax, which greatly diminish the natural air purifying properties of beeswax, and add to our sensory overload, I find. These subtly fragranced candles are beautiful to burn while meditating, even better next to your computer while you work.
_
I’ve gilded the lids with my 22 karat gold leaf Sun, so they’ll look gorgeous even after the flame’s extinguished. 50ml burns for 8-9 hours. 
_
While stock lasts.

  • GOLD . LEAFING
Leafing 22 karat Gold Suns on biophotonic water bottles for @beckerminty.
_
Decades ago, my mum fell in love with Russia, a little university town 250km out of Moscow called 'Suzdal' in particular. We spend almost every holiday there, I learnt to speak fluid Russian, and smuggled jeans, western music CDs, marlboros and discmen into the country for our friends. Later, after school, I spend a dreamy semester at the prestigious Suzdal art school, driving tourists around in horse carts, drinking acorn coffee, brewing DIY beer from foraged hops, and I also learned to restore and gold leaf intricate religious icons. 
_
I eventually gave up on the tiny one-hair-brushes, plus I saw myself more as a big stroke artist then, but I still love the lustre of Gold, love working with the impossibly thin leaf, every single on still hand beaten today, because machine just would rip the delicate texture to shreds. I love how the gold size (glue) needs to cure for 3+ days, how true gold leaf never looses it's shimmer.

  • “Where have all the flowers gone?” ~ Pete Seeger ‘The Rainbow Quest’ 1960.
_
Our traditional and slow method of sun-infusion (also called maceration or enfleurage), uses only a tiny fraction of the amounts of flowers needed to produce essential oils, and yields a much rounder, subtly aromatic extract that is whole and easily tolerated by skin and body without systemic side effects. 
_
I consider essential oils to be exquisitely precious essences, part of my home apothecary, not meditation kit. To be used with utmost restraint and respect, dosaged in homeopathic quantities, never just for their aroma, colour, or even their physical stimuli, but for their powerful psychoactive properties that activate our ethereal body. 
_
And while we may strive for heightened awareness and spirit connection, we must not forget that our physical body needs Earth, roots and grounding. Essential oils, like all drugs, can dismantle our wholeness, disconnect the spirit from our body when used excessively.

  • COMPOSITION . VS PRODUCT
I always refer to my skincare as compositions, never products. Compositions are inspired, dynamic, synergistic. They are alive beyond shelf live. Like songs, they come in different interpretations, depending on seasons, celestial cycle and earth balance. Sometimes it depends on my state of mind, emotional and spiritual space when I blend. On Christo's soundtrack, on what I am reading or thinking about. Compositions live in UV light filtering miron glass, never in PET plastic bottles free. The life of my compositions starts long before they make love to your skin, it begins with the Sun, Moon and stars touching the Earth, growing plants, creating minerals, feeding animals and people, giving life. How can anything that is made with such deep consideration for the whole, for the cycle of Nature, be a product? Compositions are for people, products are for supermarkets.

  • "Give me honey"~Joseph Beuys
_
While we're all patiently waiting for Tim to harvest his legendary honey for my Honey masks, why not raid the honeypot and go DIY! Here's the recipe for my totally simple, totally delicious cleansing honey face toner:
_
1) Make 2 cups of tea. Try chamomile if you want to soothe breakouts and inflammation, green tea for antioxidant boost, or rooibos to load up on minerals and Vitamins. But really, you can use any herbal tea you like. I find the teas I am drawn to take internally are also what my skin craves externally.
2) Stir a tiny pinch of Himalayan crystal salt into one cup and let cool while sipping the other.
3) Once luke warm, stir in about 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon raw organic, biodynamic or wild honey until completely dissolved. A little goes a long way here, it's powerful stuff.
4) Fill in a spritz bottle. You can add a little floral water if you have -I personally prefer the pure, subtle aromas of the tea - but please hold the essential oils. While beautiful, here, they'd overwhelm the fragile natural compounds, as well as skin and spirit.
_
Use AFTER cleaning your face in the evening and morning. Let it dry on your face. If your composition got too sticky, you can wipe it off with a damp cloth before oiling and balming. Store in the fridge, it keeps for 3-6 weeks, but I promise it won't last you that long. Love to know how you go! x Johanna

If your composition got too sticky, you can wipe it off with a damp cloth before oiling and balming. Store in the fridge, it keeps for 3-6 weeks, but I promise it won't last you that long. Love to know how you go! x Johanna

  • / ENTER THE FULL MOON WOMAN
Rise with this Saturday's full Moon in badass Scorpio – woman or man, moonwalker or daydreamer, we'll all be sucker-punched by it's extroverted, tough love, Amazonian 'F@#k You' energy, that may feel a little hardcore, restless and excessive.
/
What to do? Since we're all born with only two middle fingers, consider purging and purifying through art and creation. If it's your thing, hold a smoky quartz crystal to stay connected with Mother Earth, release the onslaught of negative energy, and help heal surfacing traumas, anxiety, and overcoming addiction.
/
Creation with a side of hell raising, perhaps. Whichever way, call on your primal feminine powers for protection, 'it will never fail' x

Epic wax sealing session today with this little stamp made for us by @kustomhaus Melbourne, and the world's best vinyl-free but ultra flammable sealing wax crafted by Herbin Paris. The whole place is fragrant with the scent of pine resin and warm beeswax, and I did not singe my eyebrows, or anything else in the studio.

  • LUMINOUS . BEAUTY BALM
A powerful yet gently active medicinal balm. Composed to lock in moisture, regulate sebum production, calm irritated skin and interact with our PRECIOUS FACE OIL for those who love their layering. I used this balm all Antepodean winter, for extra protection and am still using it now coming into Summer for day-long hydration.
_
The fragrance of this composition I thought is quite noteworthy: Soft honey with a Summer meadow herbaceous note and resinous, earthy undertones. A hint of soothing Chamomile dancing with complex Rose, accentuated by grounding Vanilla, heavenly Saffron and vibrant, I-can't-describe-this-but-I-know-it Seabuckthorn, weighted with spicy Cumin and Carrot, lifted with luminous, smokey tones of Frankincense and Myrrh. While the Prickly Pear does have a very distinctive Vanilla/Smokey wood nose so characteristic of top quality Cactus oils, it does not carry through in the formula. Same with the Raspberry, it has a very familiar Raspberry scent to it, but  in the composition it strengthens the Rose rather, which is from the same botanical family.
_
I will be posting scent profiles of all our compositions on our website this week to give you all the deepest insight and most illustrated picture possible.

  • SUN . FOOD
My sun-kissed composition in their new skins, designed by me, printed on recycled paper by Steve.
_
The sun came out, so I grabbed a piece of Christo's vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather, a scratched piece of brass, raided my bathroom and put my trusty old iPhone whatever to use. There's no outsourcing in our world, from growing our herbs to hand-picking them, from creating our sun-infused whole plant extracts to hand-blending our compositions, from designing our packaging to taking our photos. Everything is touched by us, imbued with our spirit, and that of the people, spaces and ethics we surround ourselves with. It's the only way.
_
Ps: Some compositions still come in their old packaging, simply because I don't want to waste the old labels, of which I still have a few left. Consider those bottles and jars collectors items;-)
