I don’t know about you but everything in my life seems to be revolved around food! Whenever I meet up with friends – I eat, whenever I feel sad I eat, or when I sit in front of the TV – I eat, in fact I’m constantly eating! It seems I’m not alone, food companies […]

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a word that is thrown around a lot, but what exactly is Mindfulness and how does it work? I don’t know about you, but my life seems busier then ever; work is hard, there are more things on my to do list, and I also feel I have less down time. While the internet […]

How to Connect to Angels with Charles Virtue

I don’t know what age I realised my mum was “different” but I do remember being very young. Growing up in the seventies in Scotland, there were not many people like her; she was interested in nutrition, her cupboards were full of supplements, and she preferred to visit Jan de Vries, rather than her GP.

About Me

About Me

Welcome to Does It Work, my blog dedicated to sharing my quest to live a healthier, less toxic and more natural way of life. If you want to look good and feel great, are eager to avoid chemical-overload in your life - and find effective alternatives to every day products, you've come to the right place! I'm passionate about finding organic and natural alternatives to mainstream products. Why? Because I really believe they are better for us - and for our environment. We use so many chemical-laden products in our homes, and on our skin and hair, that it's vital to be mindful of what we’re using, not just for our own health, but for our children, pets and the planet. My passion for natural, safer alternatives has also been fuelled by the fact that my mum died of cancer when she was very young, something that could well be attributed to the prevalence of potentially harmful ingredients commonly used in hair products and skincare, food additives and chemicals found in the environment. I've always shared my recommendations and experiences of products, treatments and therapies that I've tried and tested with my clients (I'm a professional hairdresser), and through my blog, I can reach a new and wider audience. As well as my expertise in hair, I have considerable knowledge and experience of alternative therapies and techniques, including Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT, NLP and martial arts. I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can over the last 10 years. From skincare and make-up, to food and even homeware, I’ve been incorporating the best of what I find into my daily life - and I’ve never felt better. And now I'm sharing it with you, so you can read about things that I've road-tested – and take your pick of the products that I've tried. I'm glad to have you on board and look forward to hearing about your experiences too. Enjoy! Natalie X
