5 Reasons to add Hemp Oil to your Skincare Routine

I am loving hemp oil  these days for the nutrient-rich properties it boasts, but before I get into just a few of the amazing benefits, we should talk about what hemp oil is and what it isn't.  Hemp oil comes from the cannabis plant seeds, but it does not contain THC, which is the active ingredient in marajuana. This is where some confusion comes in. You can think of this oil as a plant-based source of skin-loving omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which the body soaks right up, but doesn't produce on its own. 5 Benefits of Hemp...

50 things that helped me ease into perimenopause in my early forties

I started this blog, along with this natural soap and skincare business during a particular season in my life, shortly after I turned 40, when I felt I could no longer ignore some of the dreams that have been with me since childhood. My Second Spring was a very real thing, and I needed a change like my life depended on it.

I posted in the last blog about how 2017 and 2018 have led me on a wellness journey that has been beyond my wildest expectations. I mean, I have muscles in places I didn't know I could have muscles (LOL) and my willpower, ability to actually quiet my mind and my overall stamina is through the roof. It wasn't always that way, however. In fact, until I made another shift --small steps do indeed lead to great change, take it from someone who now gets it--I was in a bit of a stalemate with my progress. So, it turns out,...

Small Steps to Healing - Mind and Body Transformation

Now that I am in my forties, I have noticed so many shifts in my body (skin, weight distribution, hormonal mayhem). It has led me on this path to self-care that I never anticipated, that is for sure. It began with fatigue and a general sense of the blahs and a need to feel better without a bunch of medication. I believe in working with my doctors and also taking a natural approach, so a hybrid approach to healing is exactly what I did. I spent the second half of 2017 working on my cortisol levels which had dipped so...

Why self care is non negotiable for Moms

If there is one thing I have learned in the last four years, it is that self care is not only essential, it is non negotiable. Self care also involves much more than a day at the spa, at least as far as I define it.  If you find yourself trapped in a daily spiral of stress-filled to-do lists, a sense of being pulled in twenty directions at once or you just feel....not quite yourself, you might need to incorporate some self-care into your life. Self care was the foundation of my business a few years ago; meaning, I started...
