Broccoli, Asparagus and Spinach Tart

A wholesome and mouth watering dish, which can be served on it’s own for a light lunch or turned into a more substantial dinner by serving with potatoes or couscous

30 – 45 mins  Serves 6 – 8

1 packet Dorset Organic Shortcrust Pastry (375g)

6 sticks Asparagus

175g Broccoli,

100g Fresh Spinach

1 Onion

150g of grated parmesan or mature cheddar cheese

200g Half Fat Creme Fraiche

5 Eggs

10 Cherry tomatoes sliced in half

1 packet fresh chives, chopped

Sprinkle of pine nuts

Olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees, and grease and flour your flan dish (approx 28 cm)
  • Roll out pastry and then place over the dish, carefully moulding it to fit. Ensure pastry comes just over the sides of the dish ( as it will shrink as it cooks) and trim off any excess.
  • Bake blind with beans or lentils, lined with grease proof paper, or according to instructions on the packet for 10 minutes or so until lightly browned around the edges
  • Take out from the oven, remove the beans etc and bake for a further 10 minutes
  • Slice the broccoli florets in half and then in half again, and place the asparagus and broccoli in the steamer (or boiling water) for no more than 5 minutes. Just enough to very slightly soften.
  • In a jug, lightly beat the eggs, add the crème fraiche, most of the cheese and the chives. Beat again and season.
  • Add a couple of tbsp of olive oil to a small frying pan and cook the onions for a couple of minutes until translucent. Add the spinach, turn off the heat and cover with lid for a minute or so. You do not want to cook the spinach, just wilt it slightly.
  • Take the pie dish from the oven and spread the onions and spinach across the base.
  • Take the broccoli, and asparagus and lay this evenly across the pie.
  • Place the sliced tomatoes in between the vegetables and then pour your egg mixture evenly across your pie
  • Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and pine nuts and place in the oven for approx 20 minutes.
  • Serve with plenty of fresh green salad.




Asparagus and it’s health properties are really quite amazing and far too comprehensive to list here. It is literally packed nutritionally and can work effectively as a diuretic and anti inflammatory strengthening and cleaning the gastrointestinal tract and colon. After orange juice, it is the second most powerful source of Folic Acid which has been found to prevent birth defects, help to fight cancer as well as liver and heart disease.

Asparagus, often noted as an aphrodisiac, can also help to relieve menstrual cramps and assist with some fertility problems.  It is a natural detoxifier, and high in anti oxidants, therefore it may contribute to slowing down the aging process, while helping to lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure. Asparagus also supports the health of our eyes and may help prevent cataracts.

Finally, also an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium and Iron.

Finding the solution to headlice


Who didn’t get into a panic when finding out that their kids got nits? With never-ending treatments and hours of combing coming straight to mind… With no certainty on the efficiency of the process, regardless of the level of care and number of hours you would dedicate to this painful exercise… Not mentioning that having kids infested most often means that you would likely be infested too!

Moreover, a lice infestation can turn into a very difficult burden for a child to carry, as well as for parents actually! And more even so with kids growing-up with a fear of having their friends mocking them.

Lice can also mean days of school that can be missed with lice-free school policies… Did you know that in the UK, 1.78 million children are missing a staggering 2.7 million days a year from school as parents choose to keep them at home? Meanwhile, parents are taking 2.78 million days off work to tackle head lice infestations.

A third of school children under 16 (4.06 millions) have experienced on average 3.6 head lice infestations over the last year. This rises to 48% for children of primary school age (4 to 11).

But why is it so difficult to get rid of those nasty blood-sucking little bugs? Because they spread really easily, by head to head contact. And also because these “super lice” have developed resistance to pesticides contained in anti-lice solutions  (which in any case did not address the issue satisfactorily, considering the negative impact those chemicals have on our children’s health). And most of those products can have an impact on lice but not nits. So 7 to 10 days later, eggs have hatched and the infernal circle is back…

Thankfully, with Lice Clinics of the UK, lice infestation can now be solved through a one-off non-toxic treatment.

So let your children (and you?!) be lice-free with the revolutionary AirAllé® device, the only FDA*-cleared medical device clinically shown to kill head lice AND eggs. Used by professionals around the world, it provides kids (aged 4+) a safe, fast and highly effective treatment, killing lice and eggs through dehydration (with a combination of temperature, airflow, time & technique). This is the one alternative to treating head lice with pesticides.

Marine’s product of the month

Phytokératine Extrème mask

After few weeks of sun, wind and sea baths my hair was so dry that I couldn’t do anything with them, it would look unhealthy anyway … So I decided to treat it well and try to make it more manageable.

One day, a hairdresser explained to me how to properly use a hair mask so let me share this great tips with you :

First : wash your hair twice : one time to remove the dirt, the second time to make the active ingredients work.

Rinse : a lot !

Then dry with a warm (if possible) towel as much as you can and apply a small quantity of the mask only on length then cover for 5/10 minutes with the towel. why not enjoying a little body scrub or face mask in the mean time 😉

Rinse out et voilà !

If your hair is very dry, I would recommend twice a week otherwise once a week will be enough.

After only one application, my damage hair appears to be softer and shiner.

After two weeks, I can say that I find my hair back.

What I also like is that is a silicone, sulfates and phtalates free.


On the same topic, if you are like me and losing your hair like the fallen leaves in September, I also strongly recommend PHYTOPHANERE capsules from the same brand. I have tried many brands through the years, but always came back to those to help with this seasonal hair fall. The bonus is that my nails are also benefit from the formula.

Have Your Healthiest, Happiest Holidays!

Jetting off to sunnier climes?

From jet lag, to travel sickness and fatigue, we have a natural fix for all those health niggles, that can take the fun out of any holiday journey, whatever way you travel.



It takeS days to recover from planning the holidays. It’s so draining. (Bach or Bush flowers remedies and essences are great for reviving and calming all the emotions).



Trains, boats or planes –whatever turns your tum, a simple remedy can help. A lot of travel sickness pills contain ginger, simply add 5ml ginger tincture to a bottle of water and sip when you need.



Doing some exercise will keep circulation on the move.

Squeeze your buttocks,

Breathe in and tone,

Breathe out and release, alternating sides.

Then start to include the thighs, then the calves, then release.

Finish by rotating the ankles.



Flying puts the body through trauma. Fortunately there’s an easy remedy that deals with long –haul time zones.

Go homeopathic …take two arnica and cocculus pills before the flight and two more every four hours on the plane, and then another two after the flight.

These help the body cope with jet lag.



For some, airline food is a easy trigger for an upset tummy. Others find it difficult to adjust to the local cuisine of the country or region they’re visiting. A good travel probiotic is a great remedy for this and will re-balance your gut so you can enjoy all the local delicacies!



Some get away with never been bitten or stung, but many don’t.

Send off the bitters. Takin vitamin B complex or B1 from solgar 1 or 2 weeks before will help!

Put fragrance on you .. you like it! They don’t!

You can mix 100ml of mineral water into a spray bottle, add 10 drops rose geranium, 4 drops of lavender, 1 drop of ylang-ylang and 5 drops of mandarin, then spray regularly.

Put few drops of citronella in your sun cream. They don’t like the smell!

To soothe the irritation of an insect bite, simply dab a little neat lavender essential oil.

To soothe the ouch of the wasp sting, dip a cotton bug into neat basil essential oil and swab over the bump.



Over done it? You need some quick action…Aloe and lavender come to the rescue!

Aloe creates a protective layer over the skin, keep it moist and promote healing, add some rose or lavender essential oils for a super soothing trio.

A soak in a cool bath will help relieve the sunburn skin. Add a few drops of lavender to avoid the sting.

After bathing and having patted yourself dry, use a generous aloe vera all over.

For the face, you can enhance the benefit of aloe by spritzing some facial mist. This will help with moisture loss.

Fill the washbasin with water and add 10 drops of lavender oil, stir, plunge a t-shirt, wring out the water and wear it – the t-shirt will absorb the heat and the lavender will help the healing process.



Prickly heat are a sort of itchy bumps that appear when sweat glands become blocked due to an overdose of the sun.

Hop in the bath to which you have added a handful of bicarbonate of soda mixed with 3 or 4 drops of lavender oil and relax for 20 minutes, make some very strong chamomile tea, leave cool and wipe generously over your skin

Or you can buy some cooling spray!



Beat the sun safety mistake!

Apply pre-exposure 20-30 minutes before going outside and again when you are in the sun, so your skin can absorb it properly.

Reapply regularly, every few hours to maintain the right level of protection, especially after a dip!

Do not miss bits! Do not overlook back of the neck, cleavage, ears, nose and feet.

Protect your head and scalp, wear a hat!

Check your cream – if your sun cream has been open for long or if out of date, it won’t offer the right level of protection.

Protect your eyes, wear a hat for the shade or wear good sun glasses


You can also protect your skin from the inside out…

Lycopene found in tomatoes, can help protect your skin, reduce redness and inflammation after being expose to UV light, protecting against immediate and long term sun damage

Worried you are not making enough vitamin D? Eat a diet rich in food such oily fishlike salmon, eggs or Vit D spray which deliver the vital vitamin under your tongue, straight into the blood stream are also effective.


Your skin in the sun solution

Remember, it’s not a moisturiser you need as the last step in your morning routine – it’s a sunscreen – it’s the most important anti-ageing step to your skincare, today and every day, yet many of us still don’t think of it unless the sun’s out. So, make “daylight protection” an everyday all year around regime.


Make your holiday stress free

Switch off money worries, find fun for free, look for activities that enhance your life without breaking the bank. You could do something as simple as taking a walk, listening to music, or getting your creativity flowing.

It is time for our beloved teenagers to sit their exams. It is never a comfortable period for both parents and teenagers. However, dealing with stress requires a common sense attitude. There is no need to read books or follow complicated rules about avoiding panic. It is all about identifying the source of apprehension. There are always good tools for every fear. On top of that, learning how to relax goes with learning how to breathe properly. Before an oral exam, it will help to release tension and help you to express yourself clearly. Before a written exam, it brings oxygen to the brain and helps to open your mind. When the exam starts, instead of immersing yourself immediately in the exam, it is better to take 2 minutes to perform deep abdominal breathing, associated with a quick self-auto massage. This will definitely enhance your potential for the exam.

Aromatherapy is a very good tool during the exams.

During the exams, breathing in some aromatherapy oils from a stick inhaler will help focus and concentration. For instance, rosemary ct cineole has a tonic action on an intellectual level and the lemon helps you stay focused and awake. On the other hand, by using a stick inhaler, it forces you to breathe deeply. The oxygen works in the body on all levels: oxygenated cells are the key to success during exams.

For those who are subject to panic attacks, it is always better to have an aromatherapy consultation in advance for full support. Don’t hesitate to contact me.

Stress is never bad if you make it your friend. It is a necessity for boosting your energy and working on full capacity.


You are the best (Focus/concentrate stick inhaler):

Add 15 drops in the inhaler as follow:

  • Lemon (Citrus limonum) for alertness: 5 drops
  • Rosemary ct cineole (Rosmarinus officinalis ct cineole) for memory: 5 drops
  • Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) for courage: 3 drops
  • Rose (Rosa damascena) for love: 2 drops
  • Breathe each time you feel you need it.

About Hypnotherapy

How can Hypnotherapy help? Hypnotherapy is an evidence based therapy, with over 70,000 research references worldwide, but which is often misunderstood by the public. It is important to understand that hypnotherapy is not a magic pill. It requires that the client be committed to change and prepared to make the effort to make that change a reality.

  • Problem behaviours
  • Fears and Phobias,
  • Stress and Anxiety,
  • Pain management(including childbirth),
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome,
  • Stop smoking
