Growing up

Im not quite sure what makes me more emotional...knowing that your little babies are growing up or seeing the beautiful people they are becoming. When I take even a slight step back, I am in awe of how incredible these little ones are. I grieve [in my own non crying type of way] the fact that the… Continue reading Growing up

I’m supposed to put my oils where?

You've got all these oils, maybe even some special blends you've whipped up...now where in the world are you supposed to put them? What areas absorb the oil the quickest?

Journey to a chemical free HOME

Just 4 years ago, I was using everything plastic, disposable and 'clean.' Things were quote on quote less gross because I knew I was the only one to use them.

Glowing Skin!

Your skin, the largest organ of your body deserves more respect than we give it. Much more. I am sure one to talk in this department.

Our immune system

With little kids, working in a hospital and having cold weather for half of the year it feels like we are constantly being hit with something. These viruses/ colds spread like wildfire! It doesn't seem to end. Seriously. We are currently on a 2 1/2 month stent where they just keep cycling! No, we are… Continue reading Our immune system

So much more than oils

It's interesting to me that it usually takes death for us to truly examine life. As if without something so heartbreaking we would continue to solely be absorbed in our day to day mishaps. After you loose someone, your continued somber feelings are often times accompanied by self examination. You tend to look at things… Continue reading So much more than oils
