Mercury Retrograde in Gemini is going on right now! It started on May 29 and is happening until June 22.

What does that mean for us? Times of miscommunication and confusion.

If you are feeling “off” during this time, remember to take some deep breaths and be extra patient and flexible! Also be understanding during all of the odd situations that may be thrown at you. And do not forget to be gentle with yourself.

Make this essential oil roller, put it in your palms, and take some deep breaths!

This mixture will help you during this strange time.

Are you experiencing any weirdness during this time?

A Few Ways to Improve Your Health

Most of us have a goal of improving our health, but are you going about it the right way? From what I see, most of us do not. We eat the wrong foods, we do not get enough exercise, and we are scared of the sun. Plus, a lot of us are living with mold in our homes, which is terrible for our health. If you are looking to improve your health, here are a few ways to improve your health - the right way!

Get Morning Sun

We usually seek the sunlight around the afternoon for a dip in the pool or chill at the beach but research shows that the golden hour for reaping the health benefits is actually in the early morning, ideally between 8-10 in the morning. It not only helps you feel happier, it helps you sleep better, promotes healthy bones, boosts metabolism, helps to improve the way your body absorbs nutrients, aids in regulating hormones and moods, and also boosts immune function. All of those benefits in as little as 10-20 minutes a day, with absolutely no cost to your bank account. Both UV and infrared light are both plentiful in the morning; the reason this is important is because infrared helps enhance the absorption of UV rays in a healthy way—as opposed to one being stronger than the other and resulting in sunburn. The healthy combination helps to lower inflammation in the body, making it the ideal hour to catch some rays! Another bonus of getting that morning light is that it helps to balance your circadian rhythm, which is how your body regulates when to go to sleep and when to wake up- ideally having your peak energy in the mornings and die down into the evening.

Filter Your Water

Do you know what is in your water? You can check out reports on EWG. I was absolutely shocked to find out that there are so many toxins and pollutants in our drinking water. We have been told that it is 100% safe, but when you look at how many of the toxins and pollutants are over the “safe” limits, it will baffle you. To filter out these bad-for-you chemicals, heavy metals, and other pollutants, you need to make sure that you have a great water filter in your home. They even sell whole home filters and bath/shower filters, too, so that you aren’t bathing in chlorine (and more).

Turn off WIFI at night

More than ever, we are submitting ourselves to so many EMFs (radiation) now because of cell phones, laptops, WiFi, tablets, and more. EMFs are proven to be harmful to our health, but our WiFi is something that most of us do not even think twice about because it is “necessary.” There are ways to reduce your exposure to EMFs by turning your WiFi off at night, reducing cell usage (turn it on airplane mode when possible), and using a direct internet line instead of WiFi, when possible.

Remove Mold From Your Home

The biggest home mistake that people are making? Living with mold. To properly get rid of mold, you actually need to REMOVE it. So, if you had a leak inside drywall, that drywall needs to physically be removed from the home - not just treated. This means that you’ll have to do some renovation work, but that is fun, so don’t stress about it! If you have a leak in your kitchen and you have to replace the drywall and tile, I have an idea to save some money (and time) when fixing the wall and backsplash. Instead of getting a new tile which can be expensive, after you replace and repair the drywall, add in faux brick wall panels from Faux Brickwork. Faux Brickwork is a FL-based company and they are leaders in the supply of Faux Brickwork to both the domestic and commercial world. They say, “We are able to provide exceptional authentic looking brickwork to suit any setting. The high quality materials ensure you achieve the look and feel you require without the need for expensive and timely building work. Our versatile materials make is easy and affordable to create the perfect atmosphere both at work and at home.” If you need to remove mold from your walls and have to redo your kitchen backsplash, want to add in an accent wall, or want to add a pop of “WOW” to a bedroom, Faux Brickwork should be your go-to!

Prioritize Sleep

Getting proper and adequate sleep helps to boost your metabolism, helping to shed those extra pounds and to help make better decisions throughout the day. You can’t make good decisions in life with a half awake brain! Sleep is more important than ever, yet people are getting less and less of it because we are all so busy! Prioritize sleep and make sure you are getting 8+ hours each night!

The BOHO Botox

As I am getting older, I am hearing more people talk to me about getting botox. While I have my own feelings on it and do not think it will ever be something I would ever do, the results look incredible! Accepting the progression of your age can be difficult...at least it has been for me.

I just started The BOHO Botox! I'm excited for the results and my transformation. Quite a few people have done this and had awesome results after 30 days!

The BOHO Botox is a two part process...

5 Tips to Prepare Your Home for a Florida Summer

Are you preparing your home for a Florida summer? If so, check out these 5 tips that I compiled for you! There are so many things that you could do to improve your home, but these things are some of my favorite ways to spruce up your home and make sure that it’s in working order before the summer heat hits us for good:

Pull out your favorite essential oils

Time to put away all of your cool weather essential oils and bring out the summer ones! I recently posted about an oil that I am loving lately -- Present Time! Like I said in my Instagram post, I have been trying really hard to be more intentional with my time recently and more importantly, present with my time. This is an awesome oil to diffuse for that purpose! Bring out your favorite oils that will help you get in the summer spirit! 


Check your air conditioning unit

If there is anything you want to do, it is making sure that your air conditioning unit is in proper working condition for the summer heat that is coming your way. With that being said, spring is the best time to give your air conditioner a checkup, but if you have not already done it, schedule it ASAP (or do it yourself). Start by replacing your air filter and cleaning exhaust vents of any dirt or debris. If outdoor temperatures are warm enough, run your air conditioner to make sure it runs and cools your home. Spring is also the right time to schedule an annual cleaning and inspection of your A/C unit so you can be sure you’re ready for the hot summer months. That way, any problems can be resolved before the temperature starts rising.

Consider window coverings

No matter how hard your A/C works, with the midday sun streaming through your windows you may still feel the heat inside your home. Reflective film can be applied to windows to block some of the harshest rays without ruining your view. If you need more thorough coverage, just consider fabric curtains with blackout backing or roller shades that will block the sun completely. Plus, it is more cost effective (most of the time), too. As an added bonus, most of these window coverings also provide a bit of insulation to keep cooled air inside your home where it belongs.

Think about exterior improvements before it gets too hot

If you are planning any major lawn work or other exterior improvements (especially if you are doing them yourself), consider doing them before it gets too hot. Trust me - you do not want to be digging up trees, shrubbery, or getting on top of your roof in 90-100 degree temps! Plus, if you are planning to do a large renovation such as improving your outside patio, adding in a pool, or something of that sort, you will probably want to take advantage of your space this summer! When doing improvements, think about the heat, yes, but also think about if the improvement will actually improve your overall home value, because you do want to think long-term with any major home improvement that you do.

Not sure if it’s a good way to spend your money when it comes to actually improving the value of your home? Ask an expert, such as Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty, Erin E. King MBA. He has seen plenty of homes for sale in Avondale FL, as well as all around the greater Jacksonville area, so he knows what home improvements draw in prospective buyers - and what improvements do not. “Erin King is a Best of Zillow® REALTOR® who specializes in Jacksonville’s historic neighborhoods. Historic homes feel a bit like kindred spirits. For the past two decades, he has been passionate about telling their unique histories and restoring them to new life. Today, he helps other old home aficionados do the same.” He is a Ramsey Endorsed Local Real Estate Provider and was featured as a 2017 “Rising Star'' by Jacksonville Real Producers Magazine. If you are looking to buy a home, sell your home (now or in the future), or if you have any questions at all, he’s your guy!

Add in fun summer decor

Need a fun way to improve your home's interior? Add in colorful throw blankets, pillows, or other summer decor items for a fun (and inexpensive) upgrade! Once summer is over, just tuck them away in storage and bring them back out next year.

What's in my Purse?

Lets have a look inside my backpack purse…as far as Young Living products go!

𝚙𝚎𝚛𝚏𝚞𝚖𝚎 𝚛𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚛 - clary sage, bergamot & ylang ylang…not only does it smell good but it puts me in a good mood! I’ve been getting a lot of compliments when I wear it so I’ve started carrying it around with me.

𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚜 𝚛𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚛 - a lot of people are getting sick around here so I’ve been trying to be vigilant about using Thieves whenever I can!

𝚌𝚋𝚍 𝚛𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚛 – anxiety blend + about 200mg of cbd. When I really needed this, the CBD Calm was out of stock so thought I would try my hand in making my own. When you’re out and about, you never know when you’ll need this ;)

𝚑𝚎𝚊𝚍𝚊𝚌𝚑𝚎 𝚛𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚛 – whenever someone around me mentions they have a headache, I let them use this…which happens quite often so I started carrying this with me!

𝚙𝚊𝚝𝚌𝚑𝚘𝚞𝚕𝚒 - if you follow me on instagram, you know I use this under my arms if I’m not smelling the best. I’ve been struggling to get a good deodorant that works for me!

𝚎𝚗-𝚛-𝚐𝚎𝚎 - morning gym workout calls for some extra pep in my step! 

𝚕𝚊𝚟𝚎𝚗𝚍𝚎𝚛 - although I have oils that do some of the same things lavender does (calm, headache, etc) I still always have to have lavender with me!

𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚜 𝚑𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚜𝚊𝚗𝚒𝚝𝚒𝚣𝚎𝚛 + 𝚜𝚙𝚛𝚊𝚢 – I’m very happy with how the sanitizer works – my hands feel super clean and smell good after I use it.

𝚛𝚘𝚜𝚎 𝚘𝚒𝚗𝚝𝚖𝚎𝚗𝚝 – I just got this recently and am in love with it! I used a butter knife to whip it up a bit and I’ve been using it as chapstick. Lately, I’ve used it for my lips more than chapstick. It feels so good and lasts long! Also, if my hands feel dry, I use it as lotion.

𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚜 𝚖𝚒𝚗𝚝𝚜 + 𝚕𝚘𝚣𝚎𝚗𝚐𝚎𝚜 - I don’t chew gum so I like having these on hand! I use the mint if I’ve had a meal out and need fresh breath. The lozenges I use if I’ve been talking a lot or am around someone sick – I feel like I’m getting even more oils “in” me when I ingest them.

Lake Worth, Florida AirBNB Review

Recently my husband and I were visiting West Palm Beach for volunteer work. We wanted to take the furbabies with us and were unable to find any pet-friendly AirBNBs in West Palm Beach. That is how we learned about Lake Worth - which we are happy to have learned about!

Lake Worth is a very cute area - especially the downtown area with so many delicious restaurants, cute coffee shop and close to the beach. We would definitely  take a trip there again.

Simpflying Eating Healthy

Eating healthy doesn't have to be hard. It doesn't have to take hours upon hours to prepare, as some people say.

Snacking doesn't have to be just chips & dip because it's easy, either.

Snacking CAN be easy!

When I snack, I try to have some protein in with the meal as well.

This was my snack the other day...

Hummus. Cucumbers. Avocado. Hard-boiled eggs.

That's it.

Easy! (and delicious!)


I cut the cucumbers up. I cut the hard-boiled eggs up and mixed avocado in it. I dipped the cucumbers in the hummus.

It doesn't get much easier than that.

What are some of your go-to snacks?

Enfoflex: My New Best Friend

Endoflex: spearmint, sage, geranium, myrtle, nutmeg, German chamomile, and sesame seed oil.
(It smells so good, too!)

It helps support a healthy endocrine system & overall vitality.

The endocrine system is a collection of glands that produces hormones to regulate the metabolism, growth & development, tissue & sexual function, reproduction, sleep, mood, and more. It also helps support our energy levels.

The major glands that make up the endocrine system are the thyroid & adrenal glands. That is why I put a drop or two on my thyroids & adrenals every morning. You can also apply it to your lower back & liver. (This also comes as a vitality oil so you can ingest a drop daily if you’d like as well.)

The reason I love this bottle of amazing plant juice so much is because it has reduced my hatred of my monthly visitor (if you catch my drift) for various reasons...not as painful or intense cramps, lighter cycle, less pains all around - it has certainly helped it be WAY more bearable. When I put it on, I do feel a sense of calm as I smell it.

To make application easier, you can even make this into a roller bottle - which I have done as well.

For those of you who use endoflex, what do you think?

If you're interested in snagging one for yourself, add it to your next Essential Rewards order, you will not disappointed.

Or, if you're interested in joining my oily tribe & adding this to your order, I would be happy to walk you through the process.

Greek Quinoa Salad Recipe

  • 3 cooked beets
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 english cucumber
  • 3 tablespoon fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 2 oz feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 pepper

  1. Chop cooked beets, scallion, red onion, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, oregano, and shallot. Combine in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. 
  3. Combine dressing, beets, scallion, onion, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, oregano, shallot, chickpeas, and quinoa in a large bowl.
  4. Add crumbled feta on top, chill for at least thirty minutes, & enjoy!

When shopping, use organic ingredients if possible. I had leftover tofu so added some into my dish. Feel free to add protein (tofu, shredded chicken, etc.) to this dish if you'd like.

This meal is great to make as meal prep for the week and eat it for lunch. That's what I've done this week and thoroughly enjoy it! If you do plan on doing that, I would recommend adding the feta cheese per dish.

PM Essential Oil Routine

Time to share how I use my oils in the PM! (At least the lineup from today.)

PEACE & CALMING. I told you guys in my AM Essential Oil Routine post that this is one of my favorite oils! Before running to the grocery store, I throw this on behind my ears and on my wrist. You know how the grocery store can be sometimes…I always like to feel prepared and be in an uplifted mood, feeling relaxed.

PURIFICATION. This goes in the diffuser when I get home as it freshens the air and deodorizes. I’m trying to get my husband to realize how great the diffuser is VS a candle. Since I’ve been using this oil, it’s been helping me plead my case! It smells so good.

THIEVES. I’ll let you in on a HUGE secret here. If you’re one of those who cry like crazy when you’re cutting onions, open the bottle & leave it on the cutting board as you cut. You won’t cry!! It even works for my husband, who is in the same room but not right next to me.

ROSEMARY. A couple drops of rosemary goes in my shampoo. It helps promote hair growth and dry hair – both areas my hair needs help in. In the area of hair, I am in need of a lot of help!

THIEVES CLEANER. Thieves cleaner is SO concentrated. I do 1 capful of cleaner with the rest water in this bottle. It’s my multi-purpose cleaner. After dinner tonight, I cleaned all of the countertops with this cleaner, along with the table and stove.

RELAX ROLLER. Before bedtime, this roller goes on the bottom of my feet and on the temples – for both my husband and myself! If I get to bed before hubby, he reminds me to put it on him. You can find this roller available in my shop!

TEETH GRINDING RELIEF ROLLER: panaway, valor & lavender. This roller goes all along my jaw. Since using it, I haven’t had to wear a mouth guard to go to bed, which is pretty incredible!

As I mentioned before, in my if you're interested in snagging some amazing plant juice, you can do so here - by signing up as a member or as a retail customer. Any questions, I would be thrilled to answer...just send me an e-mail!
