It is my pleasure to create natural concoctions that change lives 🙌🏾
I started changing mine and now I’m on a mission to keep helping improve the life of others. All it takes is to have an open heart to receive Mother Nature gifts in your home. 🌱
Last night I was in the middle of a really difficult situation and handled it in a way I would have never done it years ago. My calmness was so noticeable that I even got a text in the morning telling me how inspiring I was. I was surprised too 😳 then I remember that before the whole situation developed I had rubbed my arms and legs with lemongrass, eucalyptus and lavender because mosquitoes were so vicious.
No mosquito bit me.
Nothing made me lose my cool
My kids clean. In a household of 6, there is no weekly cleaning lady (prayers), but there is a lot of people making things dirty. I LOVE Thieves cleaner because it’s an all-in-one & it’s safe for my kids to use without supervision. Because if there’s one thing I hate doing, it’s supervising children.

Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) essential oil has been known to be soothing to the nervous system and has traditionally been used to relieve symptoms of depression and stress.
Anxiety: over-thinking, worrying, fear. It’s the worst!
I meet people everyday who live with some level of anxious feelings from time to time.
The good news?? Essential oils high in the plant-based chemical, Linalool are well known for their ability to soothe sad and anxious feelings, and help calm your worries.
Here are some of my favorite @doterra products for anxious feelings:
🌟 Lifelong Vitality Vitamins
Here’s how I keep my anxious feelings at bay:
👉🏼Take Lifelong Vitality Vitamins EVERY DAY (this is #1 !)
👉🏼Apply a roller bottle with Balance and Cedarwood to my wrist, back of neck, abs, and over my heart.
👉🏼Take 1 drop of Lavender & Frankincense internally each morning.
👉🏼Drop any combination of the above oils in a diffuser or on my pillow.
Tell me how essential oils have calmed your anxious feelings!💕
**Note: Essential oils are not meant to cure severe anxiety that disrupts daily life.

Today we pretended it was summer already, with popcorn and smoothies for dinner, and reading “Half Magic” out loud before bed, my four precious people piled on the couch with me. Counting down the days till the pool opens and we can get to work on our summer reading logs and stop with the bright and early alarm clocks and I think I am just as excited as my sweet sunny crew. Two more days of school. Let’s do this. ❤️
The dessert list diffuser is my favorite in Young Livings Premium Starter Kit. It changes colors to set the mood and can run all night long so you’re getting the best sleep ever!! It also won’t break easily if you have kids!

I don't usually post shelfies but this one was too cute (aren't I punny?) No but really guys, we put these shelves up from Etsy a couple days ago and they make my life sooo much better. The left one is for relaxing oils, the right is for energizing. My previous organization was overflowing so I had to get something new and I'm so glad I did!! Organizing brings such peace of mind for me and is an absolute necessity. Is anyone else like this?
Hey friends! Now that I’ve got this oily Insta rolling, I thought I’d tell you just a wee bit about myself. Let’s do the short version and I’ll be sure to share more in depth as we get to know each other 👍🏽🥰
- I married my best friend almost 18 years ago and I still really like him. Thanks for being my #email@example.com -I’m the second oldest of 5 kids and grew up in a bed and breakfast... which means I’m good at being responsible and learned young to be helpful
- I’m a red seal certified chef. I trained at the Stratford chef school and really enjoy feeding people (even if it’s just my family for dinner)
- I have 4 kids but have been a mom to 6 through fostering, adoption and most recently our first bio baby (he’s a miracle and I’ll tell you more cause it’s a great story!)
- I love being a Jesus follower but don’t have time for being religious. Instead I hope to spread some LOVE around since I am #savedbygrace - I love to garden and grow all kinds of things. Currently I’m super into getting my veg garden up and running for the year.
- Health and wellness are my passions and I would love to share more of my journey with you. The hot topics for me personally have been nutrition, hormonal health, mental health and stress management and fertility - I work for Young Living because I just cannot get over the heart of this company for helping people grow in health and protecting the earth. They’re incredible!
- I turned 38 this Spring and am more convinced than ever that life is a treasure, the best is yet to come and it is ok to get older. Let’s celebrate our seasons, #amiright - Did I miss anything? Tell me what you want to know 💕

The only way I fall asleep! 🙌🏻 30 min before bed I pop in one of each of these softgels. .
Do you have a tough time going to bed? Does your mind race at night, making it hard to fall asleep? If so, these are a MUST! I love how these simple, natural tools can help me ground my thoughts, and support my emotions all while helping me get a good nights sleep! .
Who else is obsessed with this duo?
I wore the red dress! 💃🏼 last week I read that you’re maybe not supposed to wear red to a wedding 😳 I shared a poll in my stories and most of you said to wear the red dress anyway so I went with it and loved it! I think it might also be a Texas rule? 🤷🏼♀️ .
We had such a great time at the wedding, caught up with a lot of old friends and danced a lot.. and omg I’m out of shape 🙈 I was so sore yesterday and today that I needed deep blue 🤣
Do you dance at weddings or do you like to sit back and watch us crazy pants’ dance? 💃🏼

With the hot weather on the horizon, lets talk about the importance of H2O. 💧There are many reasons why drinking an adequate amount of water is so vital to your overall well-being, rule of thumb (you should try to drink half of your body weight a day in ounces). Or to make it easy a minimum of 60oz per day!
Below I have outlined ten reasons to drink more water:
1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!
2. Promotes Weight Loss
Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (by filling up your tummy if consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!
3. Flushes Out Toxins
Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
4. Improves Skin Complexion
Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!
5. Maintains Regularity
Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food.
6. Boosts Immune System
A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. And who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time?
7. Natural Headache Remedy
Helps relieve and prevent headaches which are commonly caused by dehydration.
8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains
Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.
9. Puts You In A Good Mood
When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!
10. Adding a Essential oils to your water
When adding essential oils to your water you're getting the benefits internally, whether it helps to curb a craving, gently cleanse your body, or promote a sense of flavor! Some of my favorite oils to add into my water, (lemon, grapefruit, wild orange, slim and sassy, tangerine and lime)

Hey friends & family,
You would probably be aware that for almost 6 months now, @iliskadreams and I have been growing our doTERRA essential oils business. While also completing studies to become certified Doula's; and my Mum being the freaking amazing birth photographer that she is! (She is also into maternity and first 48hours of newborn goodness)
This whole business came about after Mum's 50th last year we were talking about what we have achieved so far and where we still want to go. For us we want to build a like minded community where we can support and nurture women whether that be through birth education or essential oils.
These oils came into our life when we were in pretty bad shape last year health-wise, and they quickly turned us from sceptics into the crazy oils ladies, that are passionate about teaching everyone a natural and healthy solution.
The whole reason we decided to bring essential oils into the business is because we were struggling with sleep, tummy issues, immune support, dermatitis and stress; these are so common in so many households, and now we want to be able to share our mother nature solutions with the people who are open to learn.
The reason I am telling you this right now, is because for the first time ever we are able to offer you our introductory enrolment kits at a massive discount. So if you have been interested in what these oils are all about, or wanting to get started with some in your home, please reach out to me as this offer ends in May.
We can have a chat about your wellness concerns, so you can decide which ones will suit you best. And then you will join one of the most exclusive oily groups with love and resources and ongoing support from myself and Mum, so you will always know which oils to use and how to use them.
If you want to chat, send me a message. Or if you know someone who you think would love this, please tag them in this post.... Your Oily Ladies at Art Of A Doula 💛🍃🌻

I love this little tube of Peppermint beadlets! If you have gotten started with the Family Essentials Kit you have gotten these in your kit. But what are they for?
I love using these as a breath freshener. I suck on it a little bit until it softens then I pop it in my mouth. It releases 1/4 drop of Peppermint essential oil which is so refreshing.
If I’m getting sinus discomfort I pop one in my mouth then push my tongue to the roof of my mouth for about 30 seconds to relieve the discomfort.
My husband loves to use these when he has a cough. Peppermint is a vasodilator and helps to open up the airways.
If your are having some stomach discomfort you can swallow a beadlet to help address the issue.
Do you love these as much as I do?

We think we need to use fabric softeners to make our clothes smell like a “field of fresh flowers” 🌸, however many conventional fabric softeners contain toxic ingredients that may come at a serious cost to our health.⠀
According to Rebecca Sutton PhD, Senior Scientist at the Environmental Working Group: “Fabric softeners and dryer sheets coat our clothes with a subtle layer of slimy chemicals - in fact, that’s why they feel a little softer”.⠀⠀
One of the most offending chemicals in the fabric softeners are phthalates - “synthetic preservative that’s carcinogenic and linked to adverse reproductive effects (decreased sperm counts, early breast development, and birth defects) and liver and kidney damage.” (Source: University of Illinois Cancer Centre)⠀
Anne Steinmann, Ph.D., professor at the University of Melbourne & a world expert on environmental pollutants stated: “Even worse than liquid fabric softeners are dryer sheets, whose chemicals are heated & then shot into the air for you to breathe into your lungs.⠀
That ‘fresh-from-the-dryer’ smell that fabric softeners impart to your clean load of laundry? Don’t breathe it in, if you like your lungs to function. That super floral smell is masking a seriously unhealthy chemical stench.” 🤢⠀
A common reason why many of us feel like we need to use liquid softeners & dryer sheets is because the tumble dryer can make clothes stiff.⠀
What are the natural alternatives then?
🔸 Hang your clothes to dry naturally! If you associate natural drying with your towels becoming stiff and solid - that’s only due to the chemicals used for washing. If you switch to natural laundry detergent (such as the soap nuts or a gentle natural soap) then this stiffness will soon wash away.
🔸 Adding 1/2 cup of pure baking soda to the laundry will soften the water, leave your clothes smell-free & make the colours brighter.
🔸 Spray your clothes with a mix of white vinegar & your favourite essential oil (we love lavender) just after the wash & before putting it into the dryer. The vinegar smell will go away! 😊
Have you tried ditching conventional fabric softener? If so what are your alternatives? Share below!
