Trying to compress a week's worth of learning and experiences into one blog post was a challenge...but I did it!
Here are my 4 top things from the dōTERRA Essential Oils Convention!
This September I got to hang out with some of my health coach and essential oil-loving friends to experience the dōTERRA Yōu Convention!
This is my third time attending dōTERRA's annual Convention and, needless to say, this time did NOT disappoint.
With over 35,000 attendees, science forums, special keynote speakers, musical performances, and a massive product showcase, it was pretty rad. Read More
There's seriously something so magical about making your home reflect your soul!
As I'm working on redecorating my new home in Utah, I'm trying to bring together organic elements and a feng shui approach to creating a balanced, high-vibe space. ⚡️
If you've read my "Crystals & Essential Oils Made Easy" post, you know that crystals and gemstones can be awesome tools for channeling and shifting energy.
In no way am I'm a crystal healing pro - I enjoy using them personally, but I don't integrate them into my coaching practice. So, when I decided I wanted to include crystals in my home design, I decided to turn to crystal guru Jordie Caskey at Crystalarium in Los Angeles, California. Read More
When things heat up, I'm all about staying cool. Introducing, my Watermelon Lime Margarita Pops!
HAVE YOU TRIED MAKING HOMEMADE POPSICLES BEFORE?
After trying this [super easy/super tasty] recipe, you might find it hard to go back to store-bought popsicles, most which contain added sugar in the form of high fructose corn syrup, unwanted preservatives and additives, and artificial flavors. No thanks!
This recipe combines a few simple, whole-food ingredients for an all-natural, refreshing way to stay cool and hydrated!
It's perfect for a fun family snack, a pool party refreshment, or (with a little tequila, if that's your thing) a fun adult treat. Read More
Did you know that coffee is one of the top sources of antioxidants for Americans, and it may contain more free-radical fighting polyphenols than green tea, black tea, and herbal tea? 🤔 The more you know!
Below you’ll find my Spiced Cold Brew Coffee Cubes recipe that’s super easy to whip up. It’s so simple and inexpensive, and with a little bit of your favorite nut milk, tastes just as good as a fancy $6 cold brew latte you’d get at a hipster coffee shop. 😉
My special superpower spiced variation of a classic cold brew is infused with my favorite immune-boosting (and flavorful!) essential oil blend - dōTERRA On Guard Protective Blend.
You’re gonna love it! Read More
As I'm writing this post, I'm in the middle of a pretty stressful chapter of my life.
I am currently in the process of getting a second home in SLC and moving there temporarily as my business expands! Also, since I'll be living between two cities, I am moving my health coaching practice 95% online.
Definitely exciting developments! But also stressful.
When things get stressful, it's so important to create space for self-love and self-care.
In this post, I talk about 3 areas that are important to focus on during times of intense stress and transition. Read More
Hewie loves when I get packages in the mail almost much as I do, and this most recent package from Paleo by Maileo didn't disappoint either of us! 🐶❤️
I was first introduced to Paleo by Maileo when I did a round of Whole30 in January 2017. As an entrepreneur that now lives between two cities, when it comes to stocking up on food I find myself spending less time at the grocery store and more time online. It's easier, it's more convenient, and - a lot of times - it can be more affordable! Read More

“Live authentically. Live your truth.” - Neale Donald Walsch
The month of June holds a special place in my heart, because it's LGBTQ Pride month!
LGBTQ Pride embodies a movement of positivity and love:
- it takes a positive stance against discrimination and violence
- it promotes self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights,
- it builds community,
- and it celebrates diversity.
For me, this month is an opportunity for me to celebrate my personal journey of self-discovery and healing.
I created this Live Your Truth essential oil blend to celebrate my personal journey to love myself unconditionally and to live my truth.
Regardless of what sexual orientation or gender identity you are aligned with, or if you consider yourself an LGBTQ ally, this blend is for you! Read More
So many commercial cleansers and moisturizers on the market contain harmful toxins, and so this is a a recurring issue for me.
I've found that a lot of commercial skincare products tend to irritate my skin, and so I've resorted to making a lot of my own skincare products and relying on 100% pure, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils. Read More
Pinnertest sent me one of their food intolerances tests for free to try out and review, and I just got my test results! In this post, I'm going to
- talk about my experience and if I recommend a test like this,
- discuss food allergies vs. food intolerances,
- and *drumroll* reveal the results!
Elimination diets (a la Whole30) have been key part of my personal journey to pinpoint specific food sensitives, but until now I've never been tested for intolerances.
Needles to say, I was definitely intrigued to compare the results to my own self-discoveries! Read More

This Spring Awakening essential oil blend has nothing to do with the rock musical and everything to do with some mental/emotional spring cleaning.
Spring is a time of transition - out with the old, in with the new.
New life. New growth. New passion.

Pizza...it's what's for dinner! 😛🍕

I've made this Whole30 Paleo Open-faced Portobello Burgerrecipe several times during my rounds of Whole30, and I'm just getting around to sharing it on here. One of the reasons I love it is that IT IS SO SIMPLE.
The blend of flavors and textures is fun, but it is seriously so easy to make and customize. Because of this, it makes a great date night meal - it's the perfect combination of easy and delicious.
Serve this burger up with a side of roasted butternut squash crinkle fries and sautéed broccolini and you've got yourself a five-star dinner! Read More
As a self-proclaimed foodie, I'll be the first to admit I've tried my fair share of meal delivery services.
I can also honestly say I've been disappointed in my fair share of meal delivery services.
But, I've finally found a food delivery service that
- delivers on its promises
- uses high-quality, organic, and Paleo-friendly ingredients that I would use myself
- I am confident in recommending to my health coaching clients and sharing with you!
Is it just me, or are crystals everywhere?
From being incorporated into beauty products to being displayed in yoga studios to being lauded by health-conscious celebrities, they are popping up all over the place! Is this crystal craze a mainstream trend that will fade away, or are they tools to help support healing?
Ultimately, I think that's up to you to decide for yourself! And, the only way to find out is to get a little hands-on with them.
Feel like crystal healing is a little "out there"? Before ruling them out as a way to support your mind and body, I suggest opening yourself up a bit and giving them a try!
My purpose here is to break down some of the fundamentals behind crystal use, as well as explore some practical applications. We're going to talk about
- What crystals are
- The power of intention
- And how to use them with your essential oils!

With this no-waste recipe, you can have your cookies and eat them too! 🍪😜
