I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT … well obviously my Moringa, Hence why I started a whole company just to be able to bring it here from my Mum’s homeland The Philippine Islands. But apart from that, my family, my besties, my fur child and fresh coconuts!
I RELAX BY … chillin on my rooftop doing a session of Vinyasa. I feel like I’m floating away and I can honestly disconnect from the world and eliminate all thoughts by focusing on my breathing. It’s the ultimate stress relief!
I LIKE TO … come up with new ideas and then create them! Anything from new tea flavours to superfood and gluten free recipes and ideas about our next photo shoots. When I was a kid, it was frowned upon to be a creative, so now that I can incorporate creativity into my work. It is so fulfilling!
I THINK BEAUTY IS … WITHIN! I know it’s so cliche, but I am also a beauty therapist and own my own salon in Bondi. So, I love dealing with beauty on the outside, as well as on the inside. But, honestly, the prettiest girl in the world, is nothing if she has an ugly heart.
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … a simple one that anyone can do if they have a bath tub. Light your favourite candles, run a hot bath, pop some epsom salts and essential oils in there, make a Moringa, Natural Yoghurt & Cucumber Mask … and let your worries melt away and your skin will glow.
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … get your nutrients from food, NOT supplements and drink your 8 cups of water everyday.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PEARL OF WISDOM THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD BROADCAST TO THE WORLD? To tell the world that Moringa is the most nutritious plant in the world, boasting 96 nutrients in the one tree. The next closest tree has only 28 nutrients.
WHAT IS IT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO? I am totally inspired by my constant quest for health and wellbeing. This stems from loosing my father to cancer at a young age, my mother surviving cancer at a young age and my own discovery that I am a Coeliac.

Detox in a Box™ Moringa leaves are grown on our farm in Sariaya, Quezon in the Philippines. There are no natural pests for Moringa, so no pesticides are used at all, therefore producing a wholly organic product. The Tea & Superfood Powder is made from the leaf and stem of the tree, the richest source of phytonutrients.
