Are you unsure about taking oils internally? I was, too in the beginning.

When you start using essential oils, it’s so important to educate yourself and ask questions! There are lots of great resources out there and I can recommend some of my favorite books and other resources if you need some help.

Here is my best tip for internal use—read the labels!

Even though some store bought oils 😣 say 100% pure, they also say on the bottle “not for internal use”.

When you first start using oils internally ALWAYS check the bottle for the supplements fact label. If it does not have it, then it is not safe for internally use. Easy peasy. In time you will know which ones are and aren’t, but I still double check if it’s one I am not familiar with.

Oh, and DōTERRA oils are different—they actually ARE pure. (You can look at the testing of each bottle by entering in the code on the bottom of your bottle to

A New Earth Revisted

This book. Weathered, tabbed, highlighted and so worn. I’m returning to it (again).

Spring time 2004 was when I began to shed old patterns and beliefs and emerge into a life of awakening and presence. This book came along a few years later and was paramount in my path. It is always a treasure to re-read and ponder the handwritten notes to see where I’ve been and what resonates in my current life.

I remember exactly where I was on the trail and the sound my feet made as they crunched along the path. With each step, I was walking away from old beliefs and going towards such a vast, open and welcoming new life. I felt free and light as I was no longer weighed down and heavy, both physically and emotionally.

In time, the inner light that was always there began to shine beyond the sadness and the ponderous load I had felt I had to carry for decades.

With light came freedom and a life of deep purpose. Aligned with my soul and now open to allow all that IS into my daily life. In return, I circulate that goodness.

What an incredible wake up.

Investing in Yourself 

How many times have you thought that something for your health is “too expensive”…..consider looking at areas of your budget that you might be able to replace health with. The fast food for a homemade pot of soup (I guarantee cheaper, packed with flavor and at least two meals), the $5.00 coffee for making your own (using amazing and health benefiting essential oils), the weekend shopping trips for an afternoon of DIY natural skin care products? 

Trust me when I say I not only used to weigh 100 pounds more, but I was a toxic mess who also was in financial debt, tired all the time, ate crappy food, used toxic cleaners, didn’t honor my body AT ALL… I overcame it all with mindfulness—choices on where I was investing and I began investing in myself, rather than what I thought was important. 
You can too! I would love to walk the path of health with you! 

May I 

May I find within my shadow what needs to be shed and allow it to shed. 

May I have the grace to loosen my grip on the aspects of my daily life that impede my peace. 

May I find the forgiveness for others that I wish upon for myself. 

May I let go of what is holding me back and keeping me from what I am worth. 

May I be the light that I am and not hide in the dark corners of life. 

May I release the old to make room for the new. 

May I find the clarity to embrace what is and let go of what was. 

May I surrender, and in doing that, be free. 

May I be beautiful in the process of letting go.


About 15 years ago, I began to listen to my intuition and to what my soul was calling me to do. I knew I was here to do great things, as we all are. 

It is my belief that we are all here to serve and make a difference in some capacity. Sometimes we get caught up in the thinking that it has to be something grand or famous, but the truth is even the simplest of lives can be the most impactful.  It isn’t about being seen, but rather meek in your actions to create a world that is more peaceful and more full of compassion and unity. 

When I began to get the nudges to look deep inside, I did so without an intention of a return. So often our culture teaches that you give to get. I was certain I was not going to fall into that. Instead, I listen to my gut and lived in a way that served my highest food with zero attachments to an outcome. 

Eventually, I was able to leave my day job (and a dysfunctional relationship) and now I do what I am called to do, and that is share yoga and wellness with people who are living with a disability. I specialize in brain injuries and seniors but I enjoy all types of people and my client base includes a spectrum of abilities and interests. 

My services include adaptive yoga, wellness coaching, essential oil education and level 1 healing touch.  Each day I head off to work I realize that this isn’t work, it is soul. 

Have you found your calling? If  you are still seeking, stop thinking so much and instead try a few of these ideas: 

  • Ask yourself this–“I am best when I am ________”. Be truthful. 
  • Journal about the things that bring you joy. They may be subtle like children laughing, making sure neighbors are taken care of, cooking, nature, laughter, etc. 
  • What are you passionate about and where do you speak up? Sometimes those “triggers” lead you toward something. 
  • Start to identify your everyday actions and interests that could lead you to a life of meaning. Cooking, sharing success with others, natural living, yoga, teaching others a skill, and more. 
  • Practice gratitude.  Just you being you is a worthy adventure. Celebrate who you are by identifying things about yourself you are grateful for. 
  • Stop comparing yourself. Your life journey is yours and yours alone. Remember that when we fall face down, that is often when we come up even stronger. Wipe off your dust and keep at it.
