Behind the Blog

Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you found this space in the vast cyber universe. My name is Amber and my goal with this blog is to inspire, share, and cultivate wellness and general well-being in my family, myself, and everywhere else these words reach! This is my limitless collection of treasured information I hope you will find helpful.

I am a plat lady, my family’s chef, gardener, foodie, activity seeker, hula hooper, and a nature lover among many other things. I find each day to be so very fleeting and I like to make the most of mine by absorbing every morsel of information and then passing it on to the next person so each one can do the same. I hope by the end of this life I have filled so many people with radiant happiness, health, and knowledge.

So, you may ask, how did this journey begin? All of these treasures came into being starting with one little bottle of tea tree essential oil I used to fight a nasty cold sore. I had no idea how important it was and great I’d feel trying new things and taking care of MYSELF! Of course, I researched this oil before I purchased it and found all of these wonderful benefits from using it in a safe way. I could replace my OTC fever blister “medicine” with this oil + coconut oil, replace my toxic household cleaners with it and a few other natural ingredients, and practice environmentally conscious consumerism by seeking out and purchasing this oil from companies that found responsible growers and distillers. This first bit of self-healing and self-helping lead me to question the way I had been living my life. I’ve grown immensely over the past few years and with that, this space will ultimately grow from post to post. Each day I expand, each day I learn something new.

Some of the things you will find here are nourishing recipes (for the body and mind), fun experiments, natural self-care blends, travel adventures, and talk on subjects that many will stuff deep inside! I want to share not only my stories but other people’s stories about successes and some learning experiences in the quest to take care of our bodies, minds, spirits, and the Earth itself. I feel this type of expression is extremely important to focus on in a society that, at times, seems so rushed, externalized, and destructive.  I am so eager to share with you what I discover!


Please, take a look around and join me on this Journey <3
