Long before I began taking tinctures or using salves, I first cultivated a practice of burning herbs 🌿 ⠀ Smoke medicine feels intrinsic to the human experience...like something that must be done because always has been and to not do it feels like something is missing from your life. And you may not be aware of this, for many folks are disconnected from the aromatic medicine of smoke, but once you begin burning herbs, the practice will feel familiar and necessary. My home doesn't feel like a home until I've passed smoke through every room. ⠀ A lot of folks have come to smoke medicine through the appropriation of White Sage and Palo Santo, or perhaps – in a grander sense – appropriation of intact cultural practices that are not our own. I get it, we all long to feel a part of something, but it's extremely likely, if not entirely fact, that at some point in history your ancestors burned herbs. Perhaps in ritual, for medicine, pure aesthetic principles, or all three...there is smoke in your bones and herbs from your lineage to connect with. There is no reason for you to steal sacred practices from cultures that are not your own. ⠀ We recently made a batch of seasonal smoke bundles out of herbs from the land around us – cedar, juniper, and mugwort – the practice of wrapping these herbs felt comforting in itself, but the aromatic smoke they create is transporting in a much deeper sense. I've been burning a small bit in my home each day as part of my morning ritual and in my magical practice. These smoke bundles are magic, yes, but they also just smell good, help you to connect to your medicine in a different way, and help you feel "at home" in a sense. It's hard to describe...is smoke medicine a part of your practice?

So many reasons for stockpiling: big family, living on a mountain, cashed in hundreds of ER points (aka free stuff), habitual gift giver and it makes my mom heart happy to know I don’t have to run out and buy random unsafe products off the store shelves... just because we ran out. Sharing in my stories what I have in our stockpile so far, if you’re into that kind of thing 👌
The easiest way to soothe your throat... ⠀⠀ Application Options: 1️⃣ Drip a drop each of Lemon and On Guard directly in your throat. 2️⃣ Add 1-2 drops of Lemon and On Guard into a little honey and swallow it down. 3️⃣ Add 1-2 drops Lemon and On Guard into a shot glass of water and gargle for 10-15 seconds....then spit, or swallow 😬😂...up to you! 4️⃣ Add 1-2 drops of Lemon and On Guard into Honey and stir into hot water to make a soothing tea to sip on. 5️⃣ Add 8-10 drops each into 2oz of the kids Omegas from dōTERRA, in a spray bottle. Shake and spray in your throat. Store in your refrigerator. 6️⃣ Use fractionated coconut oil, add in a drop each of Lemon and On Guard massage topically on the outside of your throat. ⠀⠀ Bonus: you can also diffuse both of these to cleanse the air...see how versatile just these two oils are for a scratchy throat. 😏👏🤯 ⠀⠀ What is your favorite oil remedy for a scratchy throat?

Packing for holiday traveling today and here are the toiletries I have gathered for a month. • + Toothbrush travel case + Bamboo toothbrush + Cedar Spruce deodorant + Face lotion + Shampoo, conditioner and soap bars + Toothpaste tablets + Perfume in a little roller bottle + Dental floss + Homemade dry shampoo + Homemade lip balm + Olive oil for removing makeup, smoothing hair + Comb • Not pictured: My plastic hot pink travel razor. I have switched to a safety razor, but you can’t fly with the razor blades so I keep this one for traveling. I took a photo with it but the hot pink was so ugly and what can I say? #aesthetic 😂 Also not pictured is my face wash that is already at my Mom’s house. Sharing my updated face routine super soon.

Our sense of smell has a direct pathway to the limbic system, the part of our brain that governs emotion, memory, and motivation. This is why the smell of home, of spring rain, or tangerines during the holidays can trigger a vividness. We're taking a cue from the 18th century wintertime ritual and making orange pomanders. The bright and fragrant scent of the citrus fruit is invigorating and mood-uplifting. Add fresh cloves to heighten. Breath deep. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image: William J. McCloskey "Wrapped Oranges," 1890.
How are you getting creatively sustainable this holiday season? • I have been seeing so many types of Christmas trees this year and I love it! People make trees out of ladders, garlands, everything! I believe there are sustainable ways to have a tree that looks like a tree, but there are also really creative things you can do for a sustainable tree. • This is our Christmas tree. It’s made out of books. 📚 We started doing this last year after we moved to Miami and didn’t have the room to store a fake tree or the money to buy a real one. The book tree was born and we love it more than we even thought we would. We plan to keep doing this for a long time. 🎄 • Happy Holidays!

This post is about periods so if that makes you squirm then maybe this post ain’t for you. Otherwise keep reading ⬇️ When I was a teen people didn’t really talk openly about this subject it was quite taboo. As a Teacher now I find young women and teens are way more open, informed and curious about the female reproductive system. One thing that I feel is really key to know is that everyone experiences periods differently. Whether it’s pain, mood swings, temperature changes, cravings or other symptoms, everyone’s body is unique. Typically ongoing discomfort is usually a sign of imbalance. In addition to eating well, hydrating, exercise and rest, essential oils have been a life changing for me. I use this awesome tracker called the Flo app, that helps me to stay informed about cycles. So over the last 3 months I’ve been monitoring my routine closely. If I apply oils like Dragon Time 2-3 days before, day and night consistently... I don’t feel like such a dragon 😉. Dragon Time contains clary sage which I highly recommend for and ladies struggling with heavy discomfort and imbalance. Other great oils are: Copaiba, Cypress, Geranium, Wintergreen and Lavender. Apply, diffuse and inhale before during and after a dragon cycle for best results! What are your dragon time on the month tips?
Truth time- I’ve spent many many years suffering from feelings of sadness and anxiety. It started as a teen after I experienced a tragic loss that truly turned my whole life upside down. It worsened after the birth of both my girls. The first six months of my babies lives (and more with the second) are truly the darkest of mine. I’ve struggled with a lot of guilt over that but no matter how down I was feeling I continued to be a mom, run a business and practiced (and finally learned) how to ask for help from others Im lucky to have one of the best support systems ever but I also have found support with these three oils. My top oils for sadness. I have been incorporating these a drop of each in a capsule daily, along with my LLV supplements and exercise . If you have been struggling I write this in the hopes that this provides some support that your not alone, it does get better, ask for help, see a doctor if it is bad (always do this!), and in addition you can give these a try to help support your body and brain. . If you are someone who has struggled in this area what has helped you? Share so others can learn in the comments . If you have been searching for natural solutions I would love to help you figure out how to get started with oils, give you the education and guidance to use them and get you an amazing deal including free oils right now!
