So many of us have become increasingly conscious of the potentially harmful ingredients contained in our skin care products.  It is well known that harsh, drying alcohols should be avoided due to the damaging effect they have on our skin.  

Confusion can happen when ingredients such as 'Cetearyl Alcohol' or ' Stearyl Alcohol' are listed on natural skin care products.   These alcohols however are from a group of natural 'waxes' or 'fatty alcohols' derived from vegetable oils which actually help to moist...

What potential side effects linger due to toxins and heavy metals in our fish stocks? 

Industry increasingly leads to toxins such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury ending up in the flesh of fish – these contaminates bioaccumulate and we are at risk of ingesting them.

What is the impact of this global ‘fish oil’ industry that is expected to grow to $2.63 Billion by 2020?  Can we sustain the threat of over fishing?  Not only for fish itself but for the added use of oil as a health supplementation.

We’ve ...

Ten years in along the journey that is Hemp Hemp Hooray, my business may not be a Fortune 500 company, however there is great fortune at its core.  When starting Hemp Hemp Hooray the intention was never for it to be 'growth driven' or a deity to consumerism, it’s not about having more stuff, it’s about doing better with what we have.  About addressing the world’s needs in a healthy and sustainable way.

There are so many choices in this world and it’s important we remain conscious of how our purchases affect the health and wellbeing of not only ourselves but the planet as a whole.

With the delightful scent and flavour of Rose water and dipped in chocolate my personal favourite in the chocolate realm is indeed 'Turkish delight'.   Legend has a few examples of the origin of Turkish delight including the tale of a certain Sultan who believed the way to a woman’s heart was through her stomach and wanted an exotic and innovative sweet to woo his mistresses.  Couples exchanged the sweet treats as a token of love.

Exotic and innovative describes our beautiful Daily Moisturiser, hemp seed oil ...

What is an area of most concern to you?  What sparks a fire in you that you wish you could act on?

Do you hold back, stay quiet, leave the challenge to others for fear of not knowing enough or feeling your skills of articulation aren't up to speed?


This has been very true for me over the years; many issues ignite concerns for me, issues such as the blatant hypocrisy of prohibition on cannabis/hemp, the degradation of our precious environment and all matters of human rights.


Having left school half way through year 12 and never recei...

Can you feel it?

Is change coming?


So many of us I am sure are somewhat frustrated, angry & disillusioned with the way life and law is increasingly unbalanced.  In this apparent world of 'freedom' treating our ailments naturally is illegal.   We have a system that supports the use of toxic pharmaceutica...

Instead of spending last night on the couch with the TV remote I decided I was feeling energetic and went along to a Bikram Yoga class. A 90-minute class that circles through a series of 26 yoga poses in a room that is heated to a whooping 40 degrees. If you're thinking anyone who would voluntarily sign up for t...
