My Health and Oil Journey

About a year ago I started loosely looking into essential oils. I’d seen some stuff on facebook about doTERRA and some other oil brands, but I definitely wasn’t ready to make the plunge and drop money on something I was so unsure about.

10 Tips Getting Started with Self Care

The other week a friend reached out to me asking “What pointers do you have for getting started with regular self-care?”.

The Story I’m Living

After sharing my story I struggle to not beat myself up.   Yeah. Beat myself up. Because sometimes... Continue Reading →

Self Care Saturday: Spa Night

Each week I have a little spa night. I might take a bath more than once a week (disclaimer: I shower at least once a day), but there’s one bath in the week where I put in some goodies, do a face mask and conditioning hair mask. I have recipes where I’ve made my masks,... Continue Reading →
