This might be a controversial opinion, but I think that skin care is the most important investment you can make! In this episode, you’ll find out how you can rejuvenate your skin and experience the magic of natural spa treatments without even needing to leave the house.

This week I’m talking to Megan Larsen, the founder of Sodashi, one of Australia’s most luxurious organic skin care brands – and one of the pioneers of Australian natural beauty! Since its creation in the '90s, Sodashi has become a globally recognised brand that is now used by organic beauty therapists and facialists in exclusive, high-end spas around the world. Megan tells us the story of how Sodashi came about after she discovered a massive gap in the market and decided to combine the best of essential oils and skin care in her kitchen.

An expert in essential oils and aromatherapy, Megan gives invaluable tips and advice on how to make the most of your skin care routine. She talks us through the Sodashi range, why it’s a bit more expensive than other brands and why we don’t necessarily need to conform to one “skin type”. Megan even addresses the controversy surrounding whether essential oils should be used in skin care, and also guides us through the basics of her book, Startups and Self Care (available from Booktopia, Sodashi, Amazon and Kindle).


Key takeaways:

  1. The Sodashi range combines the benefits of essential oils and skin care
  2. The Rejuvenating Face and Neck Moisturizer was the very first product Megan made and is still her best-selling product today.
  3. Megan says essential oils are some of the best anti-ageing ingredients in skin care but must be used correctly.
  4. Sodashi skin care products can be mixed and matched together, without needing to stick to just one skin type.
  5. If you’re not sure where to start, try a Sodashi cleanser, skin drops (or face polish) and a moisturiser.
