Make herbal infusion with herbs and water. Warm infusion and add to the sitz bath, sit in the bath for 20 minutes and repeat 1 or 2 times daily. You don’t have to strain the herbs out of the infusion if you can discard the sitz bath liquid into the earth or compost pile so your drains will not be clogged. Makes enough for 1 sitz bath.

Jason and I returned to Rarotonga to renew our wedding vows at a whitethemed beach party. It was ten years since we would gotten married there, and we would returned for a holiday almost every year since. We were so happy to have our loved ones around us again, albeit an almost entirely different group this time. About forty-five of our close friends made the trip, and our friends Alex and Terangi Brown conducted a really fun ceremony. Our wedding had been done on such a tight budget, so it was nice to be less constrained this time around. In November, I pushed myself by taking part in a celebrity corporate boxing match my first time in the ring. I trained with the Blue Team, led by Rod McSwain from Ludus Magnus gym, and was super lucky to also have Daniella Smith from MDB is Health and Fitness give our crew a lot of oneon-one training. The training, the build-up and the hype around the event was intense, and I absolutely thrived off the challenge. My teammates Becks, Chelsea, Justine and Pax all became good friends we’ll always have this intense physical and emotional journey that bonds us. We were there for each other during the ups and downs and pushed each other to put in the training required.
