This weekend I attended a fitness event in Sydney by the gorgeous Ashy Bines. 3000 girls under a dome. 45 mins of fist pumping, leg raising, squat sitting and tonnes of energy. And guess what? When you work out, it is OK to sweat wearing a natural deodorant!
But then I started to ask myself how many of those 3000 girls are blocking their sweat glands with chemicals promised to keep them dry? Working out, pumping blood through your body and feeling your heart thumping is a perfect time to get sweaty but not stinky! Absolutley! Sweating in your crop top with beads of determination dripping down your face as your legs burn, is giving you permission to sweat- Isn’t it? My answer: It is OK to Sweat. Most of all, it is the best thing you can allow yourself to do. Fresca natural deodorants don’t block your sweat glands with our salt base formula.
I had the pleasure of talking to so many women after the event about Fresca Natural deodorants and the importance of allowing your body to COOL down as you raise your body temperature. It is OK to sweat. Seriously. My base formula scares away the smell from your armpits! It allows your body to cool as it perspires, detoxes and regulates your body temperature. If you are into clean eating, exercise and wanting the best from your body, then you need to think about how your body sweats, cools down and keeps you healthy.
Fresca deodorants are packed full of essential oils that give you a gorgeous fragrance to suit your mood, lift your spirits and have powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties too. This is especially important as your body detoxes with the perspiration that is sent out through your sweat glands, especially under your armpits.
And finally, I hope all the new girls I met this weekend will continue to give their bodies a chance to sweat it out, when they work out, naturally. I would love it, if every body made the switch to Fresca Natural deodorant- your body will be cooler and healthier with no chemicals and I will feel so happy that you have done the right thing for yourself.

I spoke with my friend Diamante on the weekend who is a group fitness trainer. She is always telling me to ‘pull my finger out’ and convert all of my amazing ideas into products that I should share with people. ” Put them on your website!” she tells me. Well telling me is the polite way of how she speaks to me. (I’m sure you have a friend like her- means well but tells you straight up to give you the shock factor!)
Anyhow, the conversation continues and she tells me that she was at a clothing party and the topic of deodorant came up. Diamante is not one to mince her words (that’s why I love her so much). Apparently she was quite quick to defend my deodorants in the conversation. The party host said that no natural deodorants work. She had tried them all.
Like a red flag to a bull, Diamante politely rose to the occasion and in her most diplomatic voice, corrected her. Telling her that she teaches 9 classes a week and Fresca is the only natural deodorant that she uses.
So first I need to thank my wonderful friend for the shout out (it probably was a high voiced opinion). Secondly, she is a group fitness instructor and if it didn’t work for her, she would be poking me in the ribs telling me to fix it!!
So I guess the moral of the story is Fresca deodorant works, so use it. But if you are not sure, give it a go anyway.
Thanks “D” – my life would be so boring without you.
Love you loads,
PS: She uses the Wooden Spice and Unscented deodorants.
I am very excited because this weekend I will be attending the Ashy Bines Booty Tour event in Brisbane, Australia. I was introduced to this remarkable young woman only a few months ago. She has over 2 million fans and now I am also her fan.
I am almost 20 years older than her, and I still love her. She is not just another fitness celebrity- she cares about women and how they treat each other. This was the clincher for me. A young women who is also a mother (of a gorgeous little boy) and insists that it’s about our relationships with fellow girls and women that make us strong and help us along each day. I had always wished for a massive company to get behind promoting positive relationships between girls and women, but it’s not a massive company that is needed. It is just someone who feels it and lives by these values, like Ashy does.
Ashy has a quality about her that is simply ethereal. There is a magical energy about her that is bewitching and she is truly beautiful on the inside and out.
I had the chance to meet her team a few months ago and they were ambassadors to themselves and each-other. I had never met such an incredible supportive group of people, let alone the other 2500 girls who had got up at 4am in the morning to go to one of her booty camps!
I am simply mesmerized by her charm, sincerity and kindness. She is all natural.
I have been a sponsor to a number of her Booty Tours around Australia and what I love most about her is her happiness, genuineness, plain hard work and what drives her. She talks from the heart. She walks the talk. (She literally loves to walk and Snapchat- seriously!) She only gets behind products that are genuine and real (and we have also met the other sponsors who we have to say are totally gorgeous!) and I am glad to be a small part of the massive change she is making to women around the world.
Many people have said that I am going to help change the world one armpit at a time- well it would not be polite if I didn’t say that Ashy Bines was going to change the world one booty squat at a time! In that sense we are both working from the same page.
When you meet her, you will also see the great things she is doing for women and I am glad about that.
Ashy Bines all natural. Thanks Ashy for being you.

Thank you to Wellness by Kels for another great product review on our Fresca deodorants. (Published 29 September 2016)
“I had previously tried Fresca deodorants in the past, loved them, and reviewed them here, but as the life of a blogger is, had moved on to the piles of product to be tested and had yet to return back to this trusty one. That’s why when I was contacted by Fresca, I was keen to test out a couple of their different scents. I had previously bought the rose and the citrus scents from Nourished Life, and loved them. Fresca sent me the unscented and the jaisara versions to try, and I am here today to share why I have fallen in love with this product once again.
To start with, all deodorants from Fresca are 100% natural, cruelty-free, and palm-oil free. It seems that most natural deodorants come as a paste these days, which I love, but nothing beats the ease and cleanliness of a roll-on. I love that these deodorants are simply a swipe and go product! It also makes reapplication if needed much easier.
Jaisara smells just beautiful to me; an amazing combination of jasmine and ylang ylang. I find this deodorant doubles as perfume. The unscented deodorant is a great option for those of us that are sensitive to scent (I have days where I can only wear unscented products otherwise I will get terrible headaches).
These deodorants last all day for me, and I reapply before bedtime so it lasts through til the next morning. I have noticed zero irritation from this deodorant, which I know is a big concern of those using natural deodorants, as they tend to be more irritating to the skin than conventional as they contain bicarb. Along with zero irritation, I have noticed that my underarms stay drier than when using most deodorants (possibly because it isn’t packed with oils and butters?).
If you are looking for a natural aluminium-free deodorant, I highly recommend trying these deodorants out! If you don’t want to just take my word for it, check out the many (Many!) reviews on Fresca’s website.
In Australia, buy two deodorants to get free shipping.
International: buy three + deodorants to get free shipping!
Today we did a repost from a customer who calls herself “theskinelf”. I am so happy to learn that one by one, each of us is making a better change for our skin and body.
Here is her post:
FIVE YEARS Ago I made the move across to organic skincare. One of the first products I swapped over was my deodorant. Gradually I swapped everything over head to toe. Literally- shampoo to nail polish.
This deodorant (Fresca Natural pic) is amazing! Even my husband who exercises the house down loves the wooden spice and no smell afterwards!
Theskinelf is even so caring to mention that our citrus fresh flavour contains all safe essential oils for mums expecting bubs!
Thankyou thankyou thankyou for letting me know that “I swapped over my deodorant” five years ago.
You have made my day telling me how much you care for yourself.
I was asked this week if Fresca Natural products are vegan? ABSOLUTELY YES! Fresca Natural is very Vegan!
None of Fresca Natural’s products contain any animal ingredients AND are not tested on animals.
Make sure that you read the ingredients on the labels of your products to make sure. Consider ingredients like bees wax, propolis, dairy, leather, fur, silk (often used in creams and serums), castor oil (used in cosmetic creams), lanolin, keratin, musk, tallow, butter fat, lactose, casein, mono and di-glycerides, shellac (used in nail polish), lard, vitamin D3 and whey powder to name a few.
There are some great websites that explain “vegan” very well and are worth a read.
As there is no official certification scheme in Australia for Vegan products, we have done the next best thing and are certified Against Animal Testing from the Australian Choose Cruelty Free organisation. We love their work and all the things they do for the animals.
Stay happy. Love our animals.
Today I received a call from a mother asking, “Which natural deodorant for my child would you recommend?” This mum was asking for her 7 year old daughter and didn’t want to choose a deodorant with any chemicals. It seems that this is a growing concern for many parents with children around that age as I meet many mum’s and dad’s who are asking me at market stalls about this too. I was very happy to speak with this lady and suggested Fresca Natural’s Wild Lavender deodorant. The reasons being is that the essential oils in the Wild Lavender blend are very soothing for the skin, have anti- inflammatory benefits and help with mood and mind. It is the best one for young girls and the fragrance is somewhat musky- which reminds me of those musk lollies I used to by from the delicatessen or milk bar when I was that age. They were only half a cent back then!
If you are wondering about a suitable fragrance for boys of that age, I would recommend the Ocean for their young skin.
Thought I would share my story today with you.

Some of you may know that I have started playing cardio tennis. Well, my old bones and muscles get a Circular Oil massage just before I play. The calves, creaky knees, whip-lashed neck and the tennis elbow. Anyhow, it took a few weeks for the comments to flow, but apparently my team mates can smell me coming before I even arrive on court!
