Day 3 is all about your body and showing it some love.
Treat your skin with love.
I know that when my skin is dry, itchy, flaky – I feel embarrassed, annoyed and unsexy. When I take care of my skin and it’s soft, smooth and glowing – that all reflects in my confidence and attitude. A few alternatives to the action tip in the picture:
-Instead of a body scrub, you could try dry brushing. I’ve been doing this lately and really enjoy it. I purchased a body brush from Walmart tha
While we are all trying to deal with being in quarantine, we are looking for ways to help protect ourselves and our families. While I am not here to tell you that I have some magic cure for you using essential oils, I am here to tell you that you can use essential oils to help protect your families respiratory and immune systems. Also, the lockdown and everything going on can be a bit overwhelming. It’s taking a tool on our emotional and mental health. We can use essential oi

If you have ever struggled with depression or anxiety or just daily stress, you know the blessing that any relief can bring. I’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety for years, that is what actually lead me to learning more about essential oils and becoming a Certified Aromatherapist. I wanted to share with you some diffuser blends that are beneficial for stress, anxiety, depression, or even for your meditation. If you struggle with any of the things I’ve mentioned, I wo
My daughter loves facial oils. She has really dry skin on her face so we have tried several different brands and varieties. I have to say, some of them can be quite pricey. Which is disappointing when they don’t work, she doesn’t like the smell or feel. So, what is the best way to fix this? Make your own of course! As a 17 year old girl, there are times it can take some persuading to let mom make it for you versus going to Ulta and buying the latest and greatest out there! Bu
I don’t know about you but I have always wanted to enjoy aa day at the spa. However, being a working, busy mom of two and on a budget, a day at the spa just hasn’t worked out. Once I started learning about essential oils and making my own products, I realized I can enjoy some pampering at home. So, for all of you who like to enjoy the luxury of a spa day at an affordable price and at your convenience, I have some recipes to share with you. Let’s start at your feet. We all dea
Have you been considering adding essential oils into your meditation practice? I can help. I have been practicing meditation for close to a year now, however, not very consistently at first. It wasn’t until about 6 months ago that I started trying to do it daily. And let me tell you, when I don’t start my day with it, I feel off balance all day. It’s crazy to think that sitting quietly would do so much good! I used to think it was all bullshit if I’m being honest. But that wa
Since I became an aromatherapist, I’ve been intrigued about using essential oils with and around our dogs. During my training, we did not discuss the use of oils with animals. This was outside the realm of expertise of my teacher so she chose not to educate us on it. However, since the interest appears to be growing, they have started to offer some additional training on the subject. So you got it, I was like, heck yeah – sign me up! So I did my first introductory training. A
The Crown Chakra The 7th chakra is the Crown Chakra. Its location is at the very top of your head and radiates down to between your eyes. In Sanskrit it’s Sahasrara. This chakra is said to influence our deeper understanding of ourselves. It aids in wisdom and being in touch with the universe and spiritual realm. The color associated with this chakra is either white or purple, whichever you feel more drawn too. The element is space. The sound is a silent “om” or vibration. No
The Throat Chakra The Throat Chakra is the 5th in your energy system. In Sanskrit it’s Vishuddha. It is located in your throat, neck, jaw and tongue. It governs your communication and your purity. The color associated with this chakra is blue. The element is Sound. The sound is “ham” which you will chant during meditation. The planet is Mercury. To open up your throat chakra, you can do some various yoga poses such as Shoulder Stand, Plow Pose, Fish Pose and Corpse Pose. You
I have been on a bit of a hiatus and my deepest apologies! I’m working through getting it all figured out. Okay, well, that isn’t entirely true. I can say that I don’t think I’ll ever have it all figured out. But I’m working on ME.
Have you ever worked on yourself? Well let me tell you something friend, it’s hella time consuming!!!!
In addition to that, I have a full-time job still, taking care of my family and trying to build not one but two businesses!!!
I’ve been asked why I decided to pursue being a life coach. Why did you spend time becoming certified in aromatherapy if you were just going to do something else? So I decided I needed to post about it, for you and for me. I love Aromatherapy. I will never abandon it. I will continue to be involved in posting about essential oils and how they can improve your life in a holistic way. I will continue to create new blends and products and sell them. I will admit, I hope there co
Hello beautiful people. If you typically follow me for tips and tricks on using essential oils, today is going to be a bit off topic. But, I hope you stick with me as I feel very strong about today’s subject. And essential oil use does in fact fall under the “holistic wellness” category. So, really I’m still on topic. 🙂 Okay, so what is holistic wellness and why do I feel the need to talk about it? According to WebMD: “Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers th
I want to start off by saying that there is no scientific research that proves that essential oils can treat or cure diseases. So, it’s very important when it comes to anxiety or depression that you also seek out your doctors recommendations. HOWEVER, I do want to let you know that essential oils are remarkable for supporting your body and helping it heal itself. There was an article recently shared by The Tisserand Institute on their FaceBook page and it was so wonderfully e
Patchouli, Pogostemon cablin. This oil is also known as “hippy oil”and I LOVE it! My absolute favorite and most used oil. The aroma is very unique and it’s usually a love it or hate scent. It’s slightly sweet, peppery, earthy, woodsy, spicy and balsamic. It’s rich, intense and complex. It has a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. It has anti-inflammatory and Analgesic (pain relieving) properties. It’s antibacterial and anti-fungal. It’s known to be an antispasmodic and immu
Hello lovelies. I wanted to talk to you today about the routes of absorption for your essential oil use. I want to state immediately that I do not promote ingesting essential oils. It is highly recommended that it is only done under the care of someone who has been educated in this specialty, ideally a clinical aromatherapist. I have not yet completed this level of education so I choose not to use oils in this method. The two main routes that I will recommend are through inha
