Boswellia Oil

Boswellia is a plant that produces Indian frankincense, known in Sanskrit as “shallaki” and in Latin as Olibanum Indicum. Boswellia extracts influence skin-aging processes positively: dysfunctions in the skin barrier are repaired, inflammatory processes and collagen damages are reduced, and heat shock proteins and anti-microbial peptides are stimulated as protective factors. At ila, we use a unique blend of 3 different types of Boswellia extracts, taken from the resin of the Frankincense trees from three different regions – India (Boswellia Serrata), Africa – Somalia/Ethiopia (Boswellia Papyrifera) and Middle East –...

Thyroid Problems: Causes & Organic Remedies

Earlier this year, The Thyroid Secret burst onto our screens and, with it, came some shocking revelations. Created by thyroid pharmacist, Dr. Isabella Wentz, the documentary series revealed the truth about thyroid disease with one-to-one interviews with more than 100 leading thyroid experts, naturopaths, nutritionists, and medical professionals. The thyroid is the butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the base of the neck below the thyroid cartilage. The word ‘thyroid’ comes from the Greek word for ‘shield’ – and it is just that, organising and managing the body’s defences. The thyroid gland also controls... Read More

Boosting Ojas

I have always loved this time of the year in the UK; there is a beautiful, rich and vibrant energy surrounding late autumn and the beginning of winter. Nature’s colours of purple, magenta, burnt orange and yellow reflect the most exquisite light and there is a final burst of energy and vitality before winter pulls us in. Consciously tapping into this positive flow is one of the best ways to boost our ‘ojas’, a particular form of radiant energy that the Yogis perceive as our ‘essence of vitality’ or ‘the... Read More

Body Power, Immunity and Protection

A few days ago I was talking to a very dear friend Dr Zulia Frost. In my life, I have never met anyone like Zulia, for me she is the true essence of being a doctor- she promotes and embodies health, she comes from her heart and she selflessly serves humanity. We talked about the best healer on the planet right now is ourselves… our incredible body, its beyond intelligence and its power to heal, to protect itself if we ‘give it a chance’. We explored what ‘giving it a... Read More

At Home Spa Day

In an ideal world, the best time of the year to go on retreat is when you need to. It’s that first moment that you start to notice that your body and mind aren’t quite connecting the way you like them to, and everything feels a little bit more of a struggle. In reality, however, most of us can’t take ourselves off at the first sign of a little imbalance. Jobs, families, money, time and all manner of responsibilities stand in our way.  Usually, we battle on regardless, until the... Read More
