I am a certified aromatherapist, 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 from one little bottle of tea tree essential oil. Intriguing, huh? Until I purchased this bottle, to fight a nasty cold sore, I had no idea how important nature was in my daily life. I bought food from a factory (basically), medicine from a pharmacy, and products that had a plethora of toxic chemicals and just went on with my life believing this was “normal”! Of course, I researched this oil before I purchased it and found all of these wonderful benefits from using it in the correct 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. The rest is history!

Some of the things you will find here are nourishing recipes, fun experiments, natural self-care blends, and insight into how I live a balanced, happy life! I will share not only my stories but other people’s stories about successes and some almost successes 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 learn and discover!



Please, take a look around and join me as I savor each day and share each drop of insight I find to help us all live the best lives we possibly can!
