Runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, general gross puffiness. You have got work to do and no time for allergies!
There’s plenty we can do to naturally and holistically kick those allergies in the face.Read More
I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?Read More
I love a good budget. When I was younger I never ever wanted to spend money. I was a hoarder of money. In my opinion, not a bad thing to be. When I went to college and started my own grocery shopping, I tried to keep it around $30-40 per week for 21 meals. Oh yeah, you heard that right.Read More

Taking your health to the next level as well as caring for the environment seems like an easy enough task but finding products that you love that also work can be difficult. When I had to buy new tampons, I wanted to see what Target had to offer in less synthetic and more natural ones. I mean after all, they do hang around inside of you for like a really long time.Read More
My skin has always had trouble. When I was little I had eczema and always got bug bites. When I became older, the bug bites still continued, I’d get an occasional heat rash in the summer, and then Started to break out.

The acne never really subsided. I also started to get hyper pigmentation from acne scars and being in the sun. As I started incorporating essential oils into my entire life, I dove deep into oils for my skin and here are my top three!Read More

I’ve had Ripple chocolate milk before and it is pretty tasty. I think it’s a great addition to a smoothie. It’s thick, creamy, and just chocolatey enough. However, it still has that tiny bit of chalky taste due to the pea protein. Overall though, I think it’s a great plant based milk and especially great for kids.Read More
When I first thought about the idea of reducing toxins and going chemical-free, I was very very overwhelmed. Honestly I can still be overwhelmed somedays at my lack of full control over what I expose my self to. It was really my move to Hanoi, Vietnam and joining doTERRA that pushed me to think long and hard about what I was exposing myself to and how I could make sure it contributed to my health instead of hurting me.
I like to start simple and small.Read More
The modern Western health care system is set up today so you don’t have to do much thinking. It’s also set up so you’re a number that gets moved along. Doctors barely have time for 15 minutes with you. Which is not their fault at all but a result of the commercialized and capitalistic society that governs the system. (I will proceed to stay on my soap box)Read More
