Megan Larsen, Founder of luxe-botanical skincare brand Sodashi shares her wellness secrets with us.
1. What daily wellness rituals do you follow?
Every morning I scrape my tongue, I drink a glass of water and I meditate. Then I have a ‘green drink’. Currently I am loving The Super Elixir by WelleCo.
2. How do you switch off and relax?
Spa treatments are my most ideal ‘switch off/relax time’ but I also love to read, walk and spend time with friends and family.
3. How do you like to keep in shape?
The quote by Dr Libby Weaver sums this up perfectly for me. “It is what you do every day that impacts on your health, not what you do occasionally”. So I think looking after your body is a daily commitment and I do this through regular exercise and eating natural, healthy and tasty foods. I also do a daily practice of The Tibetan Five Rites – a series of exercises for healing, rejuvenation and longevity.
4. What do you use to manage stress in your life?
I practice TM (transcendental meditation) twice daily which provides me with deep rest and clarity of mind and I agree with the research – it very effectively removes stress from the physiology.
5. Do you take any supplements to support your health?
Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C does wonders for the skin. This is the best Vitamin C supplement that I have ever come across, and I’ve tried lots! You see the difference in your skin within days.
I take Dr Libby Weaver’s Liver Support. I love Libby’s products, they are so pure and she puts a lot of time and research in to creating each and every one of them.
I’m also a fan of ginseng and tend to take it for a month or two, when I need it for energy, and then take a break (as you should with ginseng). My naturopath recommends Ginseng 5 by Ethical Nutrients.
6. What is your latest wellness discovery?
My Bowen practitioner has been prescribing Bush Flower Essences for me and I’m blown away by their effectiveness. I’ve always been a fan of subtle, vibrational health medicine and these are exceptional.
7. Which is your favourite Bodhi J treatment and why?
This is a hard question because every Sodashi treatment I’ve ever had at Bodhi J is so perfectly executed and the therapists are filled with such passion. I had a Sodashi Marine Mineral Facial a couple of weeks ago and my skin is still glowing. My therapist Kirsti gave me the most beautiful crystal to hold during my treatment because she sensed so much was happening in my life. I was blown away by this, especially since it was a crystal that was extremely special to her. It’s these touches at Bodhi J that make any treatment experience go beyond your expectations. I’ll be back there in a few weeks and I’m booking for the Crystalus Body Treatment next time.
