Inspiration & Education

So many of you have asked how I use my oils every day so I finally decided to just sit down and tell you all about it. :) At first, I admit it, I was skeptical. And I think this is totally normal when you are first introduced to essential oils. I mean, it's easy to be skeptical because...

Recently I started to feel a little run down. I mean, long drive to Florida + Broken Down Car = Stress--it was BOUND to happen. As soon as I started to feel the aches and whispers of the gunk, I headed straight for the good stuff...

I was at work the other day and a co-worker asked me what cologne I was wearing. I asked him why. He said "Because it's awesome and I want to get some." "Well...

I find that when I talk to many people for the first time about essential oils, they often don't understand that there are many essential oil brands on the market but, more importantly, that many of them are not the quality and purity that is required for them to provide the health benefits that they offer. The concept of using essential oils for alternative health and...

And so it goes. For as long as I can remember, Fall has brought on significant change in my life and my families life. It's also when I celebrate turning another year older. This year, of course, both of these things are once again happening. Most of the time, this change is my choice. Or, at least we know it's coming. This year, it wasn't my choice...

So you want to be successful, huh? We all do right? You found this site so you already know you have limitless possibilities! The problem is many of us are STUCK in negative thinking and/or behaviors. I know that when I am stuck this way, I feel awful. And when I am both stuck in negativity AND feeling awful about it, it really impacts my potential and the...

"I have accepted fear as a part of life--specifically the fear of change. I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back." ~ Erica Jong When I first started teaching yoga I also taught kids. Their practice is different from adults in many ways. First they like to talk--A LOT! They will actually take over the class if you let them. But the biggest...

This past weekend in teacher training (yoga teacher training, that is) we took a deep dive into the Yoga Sutras Pada 2 (book 2) and Energetics (koshas, chakras, nadi's, and more)...

Bad days happen. So what?! Then, someone tries to tell you that you have no right to be having a bad day. And guess what that does--it makes the bad day worse. Have you been here before? I am sure you have. I think we all have. Did you know that when someone dismisses your feelings it is really because it makes THEM uncomfortable? I recently had this happen to me. Things...

Suzy writes today about how being authentic isn't easy in our modern culture of constant polished social media posts. Being who you are--who you really are--is important. Not the person you think other people think you should be....

Becoming who you want to become is not easy. Instead of following your own feelings and desires, it's easier to follow someone ELSE's dream and let someone ELSE's desires lead you down their path. But once we truly embrace our own feelings and really start to follow our own desires, we become what we know we can be....

I've said it before and I'll say it again---every essential oil has like 50-100 uses. Well, maybe not that many but it's a lot and I find new uses all the time. ;) The more I learn, the more I experiment, and the more I am sooooo excited about all the uses I find for my essential oils and sharing it all with you. So I've been really...

As we begin to open up our window's and think about some "spring cleaning", I'm reminded of this quick and easy combo that I use beyond just for cleaning my house. If you are like me, you have stinky shoes, garbage cans, and various other stinky items around the house (an/or car and/or garage). Lemon oil and Purify oil are a great combo to freshen up sneakers, goalie gloves...

Most of the time, we forget how important our gut health is to how our SKIN looks! I know for myself–especially since I suffer from Lymes–that when my gut is not right, my skin looks dull, tired and dry. If you missed it, I did a Facebook LIVE in our Sustainable Wellness Team Page (yes, you need to be on Facebook to see it) all about this....
