I use to work 7 days a week. When you own your own business or even just really love your job, it can be extremely tempting to want to work all of the time. When I did this is led to extreme burnout and feeling extremely uninspired for a while. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working for myself + at home, it’s to take a full day off.Read More
It’s no secret that lemon would probably be my favorite and most used essential oil out of all of them. I use a full bottle (250 drops) usually once a month because I’m so obsessed. Here are my top 5 ways I use this golden oil.Read More
I love a good mask, anyone else? There is just something seemingly so luxurious about it. The only problem I found with masks was I had to have multiple in order to accomplish all of my skins needs. Which just meant more money spent. Since I’m all about affordable health, I found a way around that real quick.Read More
I love GYST videos, life resets, and how I changed my life videos. There’s something so intriguing about making over your life. Of sprinkling some fairy dust over your life and it all changing for the better. Unfortunately, those videos aren’t reality for the majority of us. In fact, they can easily distort our vision of what it really takes to hit reset and make real changes on our health.Read More
Why does no one ever tell you about yeast infections and UTIs?!? Listen, I know it’s not a sexy or even seemingly “socially acceptable” topic but if you’re a woman it’s a topic we need to be discussing like 100 days ago. If you’ve ever had one, you know how painful they can be and how unhelpful the doctor is.Read More
If you’re like me, or most women, you may have cellulite. While it’s natural and nothing to be ashamed of, it’s also totally okay to want it to go away. Or at least become less noticeable. Here’s a DIY scrub I love for helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite!Read More
If you are vegan or are thinking about testing out veganism, figuring out how to eat out can seem intimidating. I studied up on veganism for over a year before I made the jump because I wanted to ensure I was fully prepared. So that when I went to a restaurant, my insatiable need for delicious food was in fact met.Read More
I love a food journal. It’s the first thing I get my clients to do. Besides drinking lemon water of course! There are so many ways to keep a food journal so I’m going to teach you my method for optimal health, good digestion, maximum energy, and overall increased wellness.Read More
From the first tattoo I ever got (which I was petrified to get), I’ve fallen in love. It hurts. Let’s be honest about that and anyone who says they don’t is lying to themselves or to you. They’re addicting so of course I now have three. For some reason I’ve never found an image I like enough so I’ve always stuck with words. Basically I’m going to be covered in words when I’m old and I’m perfectly okay with that.
I’ve been wanting my recent one for years (7 to be specific) and when I started looking into them again, I knew I wanted to heal it naturally and make sure it was vegan.
Have you ever started the week on Monday and wanted to cry because you already feel so behind? Yeah, me too. There are several structures I now put in place to make sure I go into a Monday feeling excited and confident about the week ahead.

I’ve been asked constantly if I could explain my oil routine in the morning. Here’s what I’ve found. If you don’t know how to use your oils, you won’t. My goal is to help you start integrating them into your life in a really seamless way!Read More
I’m not one of those vegans who turns up their nose at "meat alternatives”. Which is odd because I never liked meat. Especially red meat. It would take me like an hour to eat 1/4 of a burger. Cutting out meat was not a struggle for me at all. Which is interesting why I’ll pour down a huge impossible burger. But that’s for another psycho-analyzation time.
I have tried Loma’s tuna in a can and really enjoyed it so I wanted to try out this easy and ready to go tuna preseasoned!Read More
I get asked often if partnering with doTERRA truly matters or do I really need to only buy from doTERRA? There are other trusted brands out there and surely doTERRA can’t be the only one with good oils, right?Read More
This is not what you want to hear. High levels of stress produce more cortisol which results in a lack of weight loss or even more body fat. If you’ve tried everything but the scale is not budging, you may want to check your stress levels.
Let’s get into a bit of science on this so we can better understand how to tackle this problem that probably most of us have.Read More
Start With Lemon was created when I lived in Vietnam. Needless to say, I love traveling! It’s one of those things that just makes you feel alive, you know? I absolutely love traveling but have often found it easy to get sick, feel low, or get all kinds of weird stuff happening (poop problems anyone?). Here’s how I prevent and work quickly when a problem comes up. I wish I could tell you to take every oil with you but here are my top 7 and how to use them!Read More
There’s nothing quite like a calming and hot shower. You wash away the day and for just a second everything is okay. Whatever your shower routine looks like, I have a guaranteed way to spruce it up. Essential oils!
Oils in the shower can be great for a whole host of things. Helping to boost your immune system, calming down your body + brain, creating a relaxing environment, energizing you, clearing up congestion, and more. Here’s how you use oils properly in the shower.Read More
Within the past year I became a bit obsessed with doggos. I blame it on someone introducing me to the greatest Facebook group ever, Dogspotting. Basically, it’s like a sport and you spot dogs that aren’t yours out in public or in yards. It’s a life changing group.Read More
I have to tell you something.
My heart isn’t in just helping you get healthy. Yikes! What the heck am I doing being a health coach?
Well. What is my heart in? My heart is in changing the world.Read More
One of the main topics I talk about is gut health. Many people have heard of a probiotic but are still confused. Should you take one? Which one? What to look for? Do they work? Not to worry. Before diving into the specifics, let’s be clear. You SHOULD be taking a probiotic. No matter how great your diet is you want to take one… for life.Read More
It is spring time in South Carolina and everything I touch is covered in pollen. My pretty dark blue car is now a delightful shade of yellow. No matter what I do, spring comes with a vengeance every year. I’ve been talking to loads of people all over the country (+ world) who are experiencing the same things. 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
