A Simple Guide to Serums

Are serums sitting on a pedestal in your skincare cabinet? Or are you a member of the ‘wondering what a serum is and why you need one’ club?

While cleansers, toners and moisturisers form the foundation of a quality skincare ritual, serums are fast-catching up with them as the new must-have for a radiant complexion. Serums are currently boasting royal status in the skincare world. Their potent, complexion-enhancing powers have earned them a flower crown-worthy reputation. But rest assured they are worth the hype! Although they are still less famous than their foundational counterparts, their ability to help you reach your skincare goals make them worth exploring. Here’s an overview of what you need to know about these potent skin-lovers.

So, What is a Serum?

Serums are fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich skin treatments. They feature a concentrated dose of botanical actives made up of tiny molecules. What’s the benefit of tiny molecules? Their size allows them to easily penetrate the outer layer of your complexion and move much deeper into your skin to than many other skincare products. This ability to deliver intensive doses of active ingredients deep into your skin makes serums perfect for targeting specific skin concerns!

What Benefits Can You Expect?

Depending on their ingredients, serums can offer you a wide range of skin-enhancing benefits, including:

  • Shielding your skin from the effects of pollution and environmental stressors
  • Preventing and treating dehydration
  • Skin brightening
  • Improving elasticity and tone
  • Smoothing, plumping, firming and refreshing
  • Supporting concerns like rosacea, sun damage, dehydration and acne
  • Evening skin tone
  • Neutralising free radical damage
  • Stimulating skincell turnover

How to Use Your Serum

Your serum can be worn day and night underneath your moisturiser after cleansing and toning. When applying use gentle, upward motions to massage into your face, neck and décolletage then press into your skin to aid absorption.

Inside Sharon Woods’ Meditation Space

“I was finding my head was always busy and I was getting overwhelmed easily”.

We recently sat down with our General Manager of Sales and Marketing, Sharon, to peer inside her daily meditation practice (featuring her puppy Archer) which she says she can’t imagine going a day without. We also got a sneak peek into her beautiful meditation space!

We’re curious, can you walk us through your journey with meditation?

I started meditating about 10 months ago and I have experienced an amazing difference. My practice differs depending on the time I have. I try to meditate first thing in the morning when I wake up, but if I miss it, I do it just before I go to bed. I try to spend 20 minutes with a guided meditation, but if I haven’t got the time, I will just do a shorter 10 minute one. I begin by lighting some incense or putting a drop of essential oil in my diffuser and breathe deeply. I finish with a short journaling session.

Why is a meditation practice important to you?

I, like many people, have a really busy life. I was finding my head was always busy and I was getting overwhelmed easily. I also recognised I didn’t have a lot of time for me. My time was spent giving out to everyone else. So I started doing an online meditation course, and I really enjoyed the practice and now I can’t imagine not doing it daily.

What are the must-haves that make your meditation space special?

I love my little space, it has my essential oils, my diffuser, a few candles, incense, and crystals. I also have some of my books about meditation and a book to record my journaling in, and of course a comfy seat!

What advice would you give to people struggling to start a meditation practice?

I am no expert, but my advice would be to just stick with it. Find an online course or some free guided meditations to start and then you can progress from there (or stay where you are – because that’s perfect too!) Just allow you some time for yourself and enjoy!

The Inspiration Behind Sacred Space Essential Oil Collection

By Salvatore Battaglia, Founder and Director of Perfect Potion

Sacred spaces are a place of refuge and quiet retreat. They offer renewal and a sanctuary for the senses and can be places where we escape the pressures of the day to heal and comfort and cultivate a sense of harmony and balance.

Essential oils evoke powerful emotions and often awaken long lost memories of our favourite sacred spaces. It is with this in mind that we have created our range of Sacred Space Essential Oil Blends. These blends are very personal and we will all interpret them differently. I like to think of them as “our little spirit guides that connect us with the sacred elements of nature and our inner nature”.

Sacred Journey

Helps us to find comfort and guidance on our journey of discovery of the sacred within.

Inspiration:I feel a strong connection with this country every time I smell Sacred Journey.  There are so many unique Australian oils in this blend.

Recommended for: Everyone who appreciates the sacred. Those who are learning to trust their gut feelings and intuition.  Those who need to harness the courage to follow their dreams.

Benefits: Harmony and deep inner confidence

Smell description: So gentle, yet revitalising and balancing. It is a complex blend of fresh citrus, floral and woody oils. This can only be achieved by creating a blend with 17 essential oils, many of which are unique to Australia.


Sacred Knowledge

Inspiration: The forest and woods.

Recommended for: Anyone who likes spending time in nature. This blend is for the individual who wishes to reconnect with the wisdom of their soul and nature itself. The conifers have an innate ability to allow us to tap into the mysteries of nature. 

Benefits: Awakens your innate wisdom and connects with the knowledge held deep within your soul.

Smell description: A complex aroma that is magical and mystical. Deep conifer notes of spruce have been enriched with sage and basil, while white frankincense and cedarwood provide a complex resiny, woody note that awakens our innate wisdom.  


Sacred Dreaming

Become aware of your dreams and the messages they bring from your subconscious.

Carl Jung once said – The dream is a hidden door to the inner most recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night … all consciousness separates, but in dreams we put on the likeness of that more universal, truer, more eternal man dwelling in the darkness of that eternal night.

Jung did not believe that dreams needed to be interpreted for them to perform their function. Instead, he suggested that the role of dreams is to integrate our conscious and unconscious lives. He referred to this as the process of individuation. Individuation can be thought of as the mind’s quest for wholeness.

Inspiration: The power and meaning of dreams.  

Recommended for/Benefits: Allows us to escape into our subconscious and trust our dreams.

Smell description: Sweet, soothing and comforting. A balance of oils such as rosemary and peppermint delicately balanced with soothing oils such as vetiver, lavender, sandalwood and patchouli make this blend revitalizing, nurturing and balancing.  


Sacred Temple

Inspiration: Inspired by the soul of Japanese temples, this blend will help you to see the sacredness in all things. I have always wanted to make a blend with oakmoss – it has been described as an oil that encourages us to tap into the richness of the universe.

Recommended for/ Benefits: Those who appreciate the mystery of life. It helps us see the sacred in all things.

Smell description: This is such a delightful complex blend – exotic, spicy, mossy with rich woody and earthy notes. It has the warmth and spiciness of ginger, the refreshing scent of pine and hinoki and the excitement of bergamot and grapefruit. The heart and soul of this blend is oakmoss absolute.
