Β I began using essential oils in August 2015 and they changed everything for my family!Β  If you are interested in starting your journey with essential oils with me, here is how to begin! When you join our Essential Life Wellness community (which you get an automatic FREE membership with your starter kit purchase), you will get 1-on-1 support from me and my community. You also get a 45-Day email training, free wellness programs (topics including nutrition, beauty, home detox, hormone health and more). When you start to use oils, you not only want to be sure you are using the best quality, you also want the support so that you know you are using them safely and effectively.


NAME 3 POSITIVE THINGS YOU DO EACH DAY AND WHY?

1.Β  Meditate 2. Write in my Five minute journal 3. Hug my babies. Meditation really grounds me. I adore my yoga practice, and it has changed my perception of life in many ways, but when I am meditating daily, it keeps me calm and grounded on a whole other level. The five minute journal is a great way to set the tone for your day by expressing gratitude and also thinking of a positive mantra about yourself (which isn't always easy because many of us tend to be self-critical), which I think is so important. My babies make me feel better no matter what, and hugging them all day every day is the best feeling in the world, but I don't really think I need to explain that one!

 


YOU ARE A NEW ADDITION TO THE CRAYON BOX. WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?

WHAT DO YOU WORK TOWARD IN YOUR FREE TIME? AT WORK?

I am constantly working on building my brand. Instagram is my favorite platform because I love the sense of community. With that said, I am always planning out content that I believe my audience will find valuable. Whether it is wellness tips, products I love, recipe posts, or yoga inspiration! I also continue to write on my blog each week.


WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT POSITIVE QUOTE OR MANTRA?

"The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you're enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect." -BrenΓ© Brown

 


CAN YOU SHARE AN EXPERIENCE YOU'VE HAD WHERE YOU OBSERVED POSITIVE THINKING PROFOUNDLY IMPACTING YOUR LIFE?

As a teenager and even in my early 20s I had a very negative and self-critical mindset. Once I found yoga I really learned first that this was happening, because I didn't even realize how negative I was, and then I took the steps to change every day. It was not just one experience, but a practice I worked towards daily through self-realization.
