Thank you all so much for the love and kind words on my post yesterday. As always, I’m completely blown away with gratitude for you all. When I post each day, my goal is to share my journey honestly. I promised myself that I wouldn’t only post the highlights. Because life isn’t perfect and it’s important to remember not to be fooled by what we see on social media. 😉 I don’t post my hardships for attention - I share them with the hope that other people who come across my posts see that they aren’t alone. Because I know how lonely it can feel at times. 💜
I’m feeling better today physically and mentally. Not 100% better, but better! And I’m grateful for that. 🙏🏻
I’ve been laying low trying to enjoy my scheduled rest day. I got my nails done, spent time relaxing with my kids, did some housework, and now I’m enjoying my little slice of heaven that is my backyard. #blessed
I hope you are all having a great day, and if you are having a hard day just know that I’m sending you love. Tomorrow will be better for ALL of us! 💜
Did you know that you can use essential oils on your pups?
We have two small Shih Tzu/Maltese pups [they’re breed is also called “marshmallows”] and they have very sensitive tummy’s, so when it seems like they’re getting sick [my 2 toddlers feed them everything now], I just put a little bit of Digize on their bellies and their paws and it seems like within minutes they’re better!
I also put lavender on their paws when they seem scared + anxious, [like during the 4th of July with all of the fireworks going off]!!
I’d love to hear what you’ve been using on your pups as well!

Radiant summer skin is just a dry-brush stroke away. Link in bio.
For awhile I wondered why the sky seemed so much bluer here than in other places, then I realized it was because of the lack of clouds (and probably a lack of smog too). Now that monsoon season has begun I am thoroughly enjoying the daily cloud show ☁️
It has been one HOT summer! Thankful for my vitality oils to make chugging bottle after bottle of water easy peasy (and yummy)! What’s your fav vitality oil to add in water? I’m loving spearmint + tangerine 👌🏼
I WILL BREATHE
I will think of solutions
I will not let me worry control me
I will not let my stress level break me
I will simple breathe and it will
be okay because I didn't quit
So please don't quit. It's okay to feel stress. I just think in 10 years time is this moment in life really going to still be with me? 🤷♀️ Probably not. So I allow myself to have a moment but then I shake it off and keep moving forward onto brighter and happier times 💫💫💫
Balance essential oil helps me build inner strength to feel more stable and connected.
I love massaging this with carrier oil onto my neck and shoulders where I carry most the stress.
Perfect for the start of the day and even more beautiful for end of the day

I've been using & loving these DigestTabs for the past few weeks as I noticed that I’m more hicuppy and felt a slight acidic burn, I was also feeling way to full after a regular meal, especially at night. So, I'm trying to have smaller more frequent meals as there is less and less room to put the food as my baby grows! + I have been chewing 1 DigestTab after lunch & been feeling much more comfortable for the afternoon.
The hormone changes going on in our bodies cause the relaxing of the esophagus, which along with less room can cause feelings of reflux and heartburn. .

Michael and I cooked Einkorn wheat berries and ate it like oatmeal with milk and brown sugar. Made a filling snack this afternoon!
What is Einkorn? I’m glad you asked that question!
Known as one of the oldest varieties of wheat, einkorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it more compatible with the human body than modern, hybridized wheat.
What does that mean?
It means that einkorn grain is easier to digest, making nutrients better absorbed by the body. And speaking of nutrients, many vitamins and minerals are also more abundant in einkorn grain than in modern wheat.

Today on the boat I thought it would be a good idea to have a birch beer with lunch (something I haven’t had in a while ) andddd SUPRISE it was a bad 💡I Got the WORST sugar headache 😖 it hit so fast that I was going to just pop an Advil (and only stopped because they seriously burn my stomach and didn’t want to deal with it) took a second... and remembered I had this handy little guy. I am not making this up when I tell you that it was instant relief 😌 I put it on my brain stem, forehead, and my vita flex points on my feet (because I was not messing around it was THAT bad) and poof 💨 good bye head ache. I will be making this into a roller ASAP

It’s taken a really long time for me to learn this. Like, my entire life kinda long. But now that I have, there’s no going back. It’s incredibly liberating to not depend on others to define your worth. In the end, it doesn’t matter what they think anyway. They’re not walking your path, so why should they care what shoes you’re wearing? I’m not saying there are never moments of doubt or self-consciousness, because there definitely are. Ultimately though, they become less frequent & are easier to get through. Looking outside myself is what kept me from doing things I love, like going to the beach, which we did today. It had been 17 years since the last time we went to the beach. Because I cared so deeply what others would think of me in a bathing suit. Because I didn’t want to stand out. Because I didn’t want to feel shame for taking up space. So instead I hid. For 17 years. But today we went to the beach. I wore a bikini. I laid out in the sun. We had a picnic in the sand. And you know what, it was all okay. Nobody pointed, or laughed, or made jokes at my expense. And if they had, well that would be on them. Because clearly they haven’t healed their pain yet. As for me, I have (or at least have started). Life is too precious to live hoping you don’t offend complete strangers by simply existing in this world. Today I saw people of all shapes, sizes & colours flaunt their bodies in next to nothing & it was fucking beautiful. I also heard so many young girls say out loud the same things I used to say to myself & it was so hard to hear. I wanted to console them, to let them know life is so much more than that extra roll, that dimple, or a thigh gap. That when you’re alone with yourself, none of that matters. That this is the only body you’ll ever have for the rest of your life & that the sooner you learn to love & respect it, the sooner it will return the favour. (Super) long story short - you do you, I’ll do me & we’ll all coexist in this world peacefully. xoxo
Vacation with young kids. Let’s be honest, we pack up our lives and move it all to a new location- hopefully one with better scenery than home. But it’s kind of a “trip” amIright?!!
Love being with family this week. The cousin time is unreal. And even though I thought I packed it all, it has pressed upon me how much oils and toxin-free living now really is a part of my life. And it’s not something forced, but just part of life. 🙌🏻
I’m a mom with littles, I don’t have time to try to figure out a new way of living, it has to be able to work with us. And I’m not perfect- it is journey of change.
I about freaked when I realized I forgot my NingXia- it’s my energy and daily antioxidants. “Va-ca” is not the time to be down on those things. 🤦🏻♀️
Maggie suddenly started saying her mouth and teeth hurt. I brought like 20 oils, but not Copaiba. I really should have just brought an entire starter kit of oils since I seriously use them all the time. 🤣
Ash got a bit more sun than I intended a few days ago, and didn’t think I’d need to bring LavaDerm. But all is well now. 👇🏻
(Thankfully, I’m with @dreambookdesign
so she’s saved he day more than a few times.)
All this to say, I use and love this stuff guys. Because it works and in most cases has specific health benefits for my family. 🤗
Reach out to me to get your journey started today or tomorrow and I’ll get you connected with some extras only happening through tomorrow that you will love!! Hey, it fills my cup to help others, and why keep good info to myself. .

the air inside our homes is rated worse than that outside ? 😱 #WhatThe
Well my friends, it’s because of the products that we are using in our homes; in our cleaning products, personal care (think perfume, hair sprays, deodorant etc) and air fresheners 😷🙅🏽♀️ #Yuck
These harsh pollutants and toxic chemicals have all been linked to health effects like headaches, irritations and allergies 👎🏼
Filtering out these nasties is easy though 💁🏽♀️ #DontStress
Obviously diffusing (and substituting) your essential oils will help to cleanse and purify the air you breathe, naturally 〰️ but so do our leafy friends 🌿💚🙌🏼
Do you keep indoor plants ?

Let’s just say Judah slept gooooood last night 🙌🏻✨🌱
But seriously. He actually did. Glory!
After 6 long hours in the car we made it to New Orleans! But those 6 hours sucked the energy right out of me and that is NOT ok. I’ve got too much exploring to do!! Thankfully I brought my kit, so I took out my peppermint oil and took a few deep sniffs. Not going to let a long car ride ruin my first day here!
Let’s talk T U R M E R I C 🌱✨💊💛
Have you guys heard of it?
Originating from Southeastern and Eastern Asia, turmeric has been used for thousands of years, as traditional medicine.
It has INSANE anti- inflammatory 🚫🔥 and anti-oxidant properties. (If you suffer from chronic pain, this is definitely for you) Promotes great brain health, prevents disease and the list goes on and on... This is a supplement I take from Enagic. It also contains B vitamins including B12 🙌 and other gems. I take 2-4 small pills everyday that keep me feelin my best
If you guys are feeling inclined to take charge of your health 💪 shoot me a message and I can give you more information!
This diffuser blend packs a punch.
If you love citrus and peppermint try adding these two together. .
Perfect for a mood booster or a 3pm pick me up .
Combining Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, and Mandarin oils with a hint of Spearmint, Citrus Fresh Essential Oil offers an uplifting, refreshing aroma that you can diffuse to transform home, work, and classroom spaces, and brings a zesty and refreshing burst of flavour to any food or beverage. Add it to you cleaning regime also. You will LOVE this one any time of the day .
Add peppermint to the mix adds that boost of inspiration and mental clarity .
Do yourself a favour and give this one a go .
Dont have these oils. Shoot me a message.
Moms are the best. They rescue you from your crazy kids, dirty dishes, and messy house, and force you to go take a nap and a soak because you so clearly, desperately need it but "don't have time". #ThanksMom #TubTime #SelfCare
Welcome to 'Oil Up Mamas'.👼
