Happy July friends! I’m so excited to offer this welcome package when you order your first oil bundle through me. If you’ve been thinking about grabbing oils, now is a great time. Listen, this quarantine has been hard on us all so treat yoself! This bundle has so many of my favorite things that will help you get oiling. Message me soon because I only have five left and I want you to get one.
Check the oil section of my website to learn more. Not interested in oils? There is a CBD bundle that has the most amazing CBD muscle cream, a calming roller and a tincture. That is another fantastic option.
I don’t know about you but I love my house to smell good, relaxing, welcoming and remind me of a fancy beach getaway. 🏝🌊
I’ve got this wonderful bundle to help you create that same mood without leaving your house. Eight essential oils and a diffuser machine you can use inside or even on your patio outside. We put citronella oil in ours every time we’re out to keep those nuisances away. I also bundled up my favorite recipe card using these oils and a few bottles for you to mix up your new goodies as a gift from me. I think it’s a steal at $125. Tell me you want it and I’ll get it ordered and shipped right to your front door but this is only for people that don’t already have a Young Living account. Just shoot me an email and I will help you get it ordered.
Just wrapping up a fun few days of a virtual convention I wish could have been at in person. I have always loved anything health and wellness related, nature, plants and natural products.
How did I fall in love with this company? Well, I learned about essential oils in my advanced pediatric training 15 years ago. We were taught that when using them to do lymphatic drainage on kids with fluid filled ears they seem to get better faster. I tried many different brands and settled on one that consistently over and over offered my patients better results.
I didn’t like that they were a network marketing company. I mean, isn’t that a pyramid scheme? Nope, turns out it that it means not sold in stores but rather shipped direct from the manufacturer to your door and promoted by product users. We all know that you don’t have to have a doctoral degree to know what works and what doesn’t. I’m ok with that. And even better that the company is family owned, cares about organic standards, employs local people and does good things for the world.
So here I am using these products consistently for years still getting results. That’s what led me to share about them. Why keep a secret to myself about something so good? I’ve never been one to bash sales of anything over your head. I provide heart led service and an honest opinion.
Happy to make suggestions to you for natural remedies for things like stress reaction, sleep support, calm and crazy kids, supporting normal body functions and chilling you out. I’ll even let you try before you buy cause I’m here to help. What do you need advice on?
Here’s a useful tip for ya. Keep your almost empty essential oil bottles and repurpose.
1. Mount a spray top on and fill with water. Makes a quick and easy portable freshen up. I use it for my pillow, under the pits and to freshen day old hair.
2. Add toothpicks to create a reed diffuser for your desk. Flip the toothpicks through the day.
3. Add a roller ball top and fill with massage oil. Swipe on skin when you need to chill out quickly or when on the go. Perfect for little toes before night night time!

15 years ago tonight I was in labor with my first child. This giant belly here was ready to pop and he finally arrived at 3 AM.
We always tell our kids their birth story every birthday. Do you tell yours?? The kids love it!! Plus, I want them to know labor can be beautiful and not a dramatic, screaming mother like in the movies.
Tomorrow he will wake up as a 15 year old young man. For now, we celebrate with his beautiful birth story. I am filled with such love right now as my body, mind and spirit relive that moment.
I can’t be part of this white silence. We are having daily discussions with our kids about racism, privilege, attitude and silence. Topics I always kept them away from or limited discussions around thinking it shielded them from the heaviness of it all while in actuality it was perpetuating the ongoing white supremacy America. It’s a heavy topic and I do not like heavy conversations or conflict. But I cannot and will not brush it to the side and just let others deal with it. I now know better and am trying to do better. I’m unlearning.
Please tell me non-millennials can wear these adorable
hats too??? This is from Gigipip. The construction is super high-quality and the look is beyond adorable! Totally worth every penny. I want them in every shape and color.
It’s a longggggggg + lazy weekend so making all the fun/delicious recipes. I mean, hey, why not?? Oozy, gooey and sticky foods are always welcome in this house. Plus there’s sourdough starter discard daily (yep it’s in this dough) and a girl can’t let that go to waste now can she?
I used a recipe I found here. https://www.bostongirlbakes.com/sourdough-cinnamon-rolls
Fennel, apple and pomegrante slaw with grapefruit drizzle
I always thought fennel was gross but saw the bulb at the store one day and said, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Turns out, it does NOT taste like black licorice like I thought it would. Crunchy and perfect in this combo. I make this slaw often and it is always a winner.
There are actually some fabulous recipes out there for salads and slaws and I took inspiration from a few and started tossing things together. Here's my result.
▪️ 1 bulb of fennel, washed and thinly sliced into slivers. Reserve the leafy tops for decoration.
▪️ 1 pomegranate, seeds removed
▪️1 Grapefruit, segments removed and juice squeezed into a bowl
▪️ arugula to line bottom of bowl
▪️1 crisp apple thinly sliced into matchsticks
▪️1/2 cup olive oil
▪️2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
▪️1 teaspoon dijon mustard
▪️the reserved juice from the squeezed grapefruit
▪️salt and pepper to taste
▪️optional grapefruit vitality essential oil to amplify the effects of the grapefruit flavor naturally
We are finding our groove this week. I have deep gratitude for my children’s school @waldorfschoolmoraine and all the fantastic efforts by the faculty. They keep bundling up ideas for the kids and also checking in via zoom. We have exciting projects all over the house from plants growing 🌿to wool get carded to quirky math problems, violins lying around 🎻 and now sewing PJs. 🧵
Thankfully they are coaching us parents along the way offering warm words of encouragement. I’m feeling more like I can handle this makeshift homeschooling thing! And my favorite part...the baking!
