Their aim is to re-educate who is willing to reunite with nature and leave aside all kinds of illnesses, mainly caused by wrong food or lifestyle choices. It is your decision to make now and change the rest of your life, and others around you, for good, and for generations to come.
Consuming plant based foods such as nuts, whole grains, vegetables and fruits, whilst eliminating or reducing dairy and meat will have such an effect on cardiovascular health. All produce is gluten free and no refined sugar is used whatsoever – instead natural sugars such as fruit and plant-based sugar is used.
Remember we only have one chance to live, so let’s live it…

Natalie Carter – Arbonne UK
My name is Natalie Carter and for 20 years I’ve worked in the world of advertising, sponsorship and events – which is a career I have loved and I still work freelance in this world now. However 4.5years ago after being made redundant from my safe, secure, corporate job at the BBC I took the time to listen to an opportunity which I never, ever though I would do! My sister, Joanne had been with Arbonne for nearly 4 years and while I’d watched & celebrated her success & used the products as a consumer, I had never taken the time to really understand about the business model or the industry of network marketing for myself as I honestly thought this was something I would never, ever do!
Fast forward 4 years and I absolutely LOVE Arbonne. It gives me an additional income, but has allowed me to work on a freelance basis and down to 4 days a week – with the ambition to reduce this more over time. However not only that, it has opened my eyes to a lifestyle which I never thought I would have as a vegan.
One thing that I had always liked about Arbonne was the ethics of the company. It was a 37 year old botanically based company producing cruelty free and vegan products from day one – mixing the best botanical ingredients with green science. Arbonne’s ethics have never changed from the day the business launched 37 years ago. We are Vegan Certified as well as Gluten Free, Kosher and Informed Sport Approved – and always have been! Arbonne produced a range of products which we all use every day from skincare & bath and shower products (for men and women), cosmetics and nutrition. Arbonne not only has incredible products, but alongside that is an amazing income opportunity which can enable ordinary people to do extraordinary things!
From being part of the Arbonne culture, I have learnt more and more about veganism and looked more into the impacts on health, the environment and of course the welfare of animals, and 18 months ago I decided to lead a vegan lifestyle. It is one of the best decisions (alongside starting my Arbonne business) that I have ever made and I feel happier & healthier as a result.
I am excited to be at the Ethical Wellbeing Festival this weekend to share Arbonne’s fabulous premium vegan products and the income opportunity that goes alongside that and support other vegan businesses too!

Jung Shim energises the body and the mind through harnessing our own ‘human energy’. It is based on traditional Korean principles to achieve health, wellbeing and happier lives.
The Jung Shim method which originated in South Korea more than 40 years ago, draws on the use of traditional Eastern medicine and ‘Qi’ energy for modern day issues.
Jung Shim means ‘beautiful mind’. The practice helps release unnecessary worries and clutter by regaining our connection to our original energy sources. In an ever busy world, where stress, anxiety, depression and fatigue are common place, it is seeing huge benefits with people’s emotional health and well-being.
Participants describe feeling more positive and calm with a greater sense of clarity.
At Jung Shim Wellness we offer treatments, classes and Family Wellness. They each aim to restore Qi to the body and mind, giving the vitality and wisdom needed to lead a healthy and happy life and support spiritual growth.
The classes involve chanting, movements and meditation to increase the energy flow around the body as well as clearing the mind. You will learn how to release your own energy blockages, recharge your body as well as working on the mind through self-reflection and meditation.

As a pioneer of Ayurvedic herbal and spice teas, YOGI TEA® has been committed to organic farming methods since the 80s.

A Fine Choice
As a mum (of three young kids), I always strive to find healthy, natural products for the whole family
One day, a friend of mine told me that at her son’s school the kids drink from plastic bottles (provided by the school). Her son complained about the taste while my friend was worried about the bottles not being environmental friendly and potentially containing BPA (Bisphenol A) which could cause health problems. She loved the stainless steel water bottles my kids were using and we thought about ways to convince some schools to swap from plastic to something healthier.
I started to do some research and enquired prices of different types of non-plastic drinks bottles from various manufacturers…and that’s how I became a distributor for Green Bottle, a bpa-free water bottle from stainless steel that comes in various sizes and lots of different, beautiful designs that not only kids love.
I quickly realised that it is not only schools that might consider swapping from plastic to BPA free Water Bottles but essentially everybody!
My aim is to provide top quality, natural as well as fun products.
In short: A fine choice!
Founder and Director for “a fine choice”
Ministry of Calm
We believe that space can heal. Poorly designed, cluttered spaces are negative and destructive forces in our lives, draining rather than supporting us. Beautiful, calming and uplifting spaces can enhance our lives and improve our wellbeing.
Our mission is to ensure that everyone has access to quiet and healing spaces where they can pause and recharge, wherever and whenever they need.
We transform cluttered, poorly designed or under utilised spaces into beautiful places that uplift people and restore their wellbeing. We do this by helping people find space in their lives, by creating room for mindfulness and the rituals that give them meaning, and by designing places that revitalise them at home and work or help them heal at challenging times.
Helen Sanderson BA is the founder and creative director of Ministry of Calm. Helen is an interior designer, personal organiser, author and public speaker, and an expert in the design and development of quiet rooms, multi-faith spaces and well-being areas. She is known for creating beautiful, calming and peaceful spaces that recognise and address the diverse needs of people.
Helen Sanderson has worked with the NHS, Marie Curie Cancer Care, The Ministry of Justice and Guardian News and Media, Gloucestershire University and South Tyneside college, to name a few. In her work on quiet rooms Helen has recognised the value of providing a special place to retreat to that facilitates the journey into stillness, contemplation or mediation and now offeres sacred spaces for the home, meditation or yoga rooms.
Helen set up Calm from Clutter in 2008, having worked as a professional declutterer, personal organiser and coach for over ten years. Observing the positive and transformative effects that decluttering has had on her clients’ lives, Helen has discovered that clearing clutter is a powerful tool. Decluttering not only meets a person’s physical need for order, but also for emotional and spiritual order as well. She works with great empathy and understanding to support people to restore their inner calm through finding some peace and order in their home.
