Speaking to Yourself

🔥 "Remember your words can plant gardens or burn whole forests down.” ~Gemma Troy What are you planting inside your head? Are your words encouraging? Loving? Or are you being cruel, fear based and dark? My intentions for speaking kind words to myself start out well, but 20 minutes into the world of 2020 and I’m in a tailspin. From news media, social media, radio and otherwise, 2020 has been filled with messages of hate, fear, and polarization. Even if my day star...

Eucalyptus

Nothing like fire season to teach us gratitude for clear, blue skies and FRESH air! The last month the west coast has been on fire cloaking us in thick, dangerous smoke. The air quality reaching into the hazardous levels above 400 for multiple days. On those rough days we stayed inside with the air purifiers and diffusers blasting to help clear the air and support normal breathing. Some of our favorite oils to diffuse during fire season include Breathe, peppermint, lemon eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon, tea tree and of course, eucalyptus. The main chemical components of Eucalyptus radiata are eucalyptol and ...

Autumn Equinox 

“A seed that’s caught from falling Will never reach the ground And as such its true potential Never can be found Watching is the hardest part The tree lets go its seed Knowing it must fall away If its power should be freed There is no way of knowing Which seeds will find their way We...

Too Much

🖤 “They won’t tell you fairytales of how girls can be dangerous and still win. They will only tell you stories where girls are sweet and kind and reject all sin. I guess to them it’s a terrifying thought, a red riding hood who knew exactly what she was doing when she invited the wild in.” ~Nikita Gil 🖤 Today I have so much gratitude for my best friend. Friends, get you a tribe who not only lifts you up ...

Lemon

Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to lemon essential oil. The amount of uses for lemon oil is so vast it exceeds the word count for instagram. Currently in the state of the world I’m loving this oil in the diffuser with breathe to clean the air in the increasing smoke and incredibly bad air quality. Lemon leaves a fresh scent and compliments beautifully with breathe for an airway supportive blend. This smoke can affect us in many ways and it’s important to remember that the liver has to filter EVERYTHING we put in, on and breathe in to our bodies. Yes, even the air pollution we breathe and take into our lungs has to be filtered through our liver. So d...

Helichrysum

I am SO grateful to announce that as of October 1st you will be able to purchase this little baby right here. Helichrysum touch is an easy to apply, pre diluted roll on oil. This oil is percfect for first aid kits- those bumps, scrapes, bruises as well as in your skin care line to help reduce swelling and redness. Translated roughly to “golden sun” this oil will leave your skin glowing and beautiful, the perfect pick me up to a long day where your skin is feeling dull and needing that boost (you know, the familiar, “you look tired” line you may get after 10 hours).

Gather

Stress

Nothing in our body happens in a vacuum. Our emotions do not solely live and exist in the brain, therefore our body is affected by our emotions and chronic stress. Hormones and chemicals are released, pathways are activated and it becomes a full body experience. This is why so many peo...

Peace and Adaptiv

How I’m currently holding it together: -coffee -dogs -memes -coffee -Peace and adaptiv I have an amazing ability to detach from my emotions. I stay calm, logical and in the moment without feeling. This ability came in handy when I worked as an RN and probably helped form my dark sense of humor. These last 6 months this super power has been extremely helpful. Watching a parent suffer through a terminal illness is rough. Most days I feel like I can tackle any medical issue and challenge with a calm and poised mind and spirit, tapping in to this detached but present state of mind. Then there are the days I’m driving and salty water starts blurring...
