As a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Yoga Teacher I listen to and guide my students and clients to vibrant health. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to help others and for this reason I am always looking for opportunities to learn and grow.
Although nutrition and yoga have been instrumental in allowing myself and others to live a life of abundance and joy, therapy grade essential oils have opened up a whole new dimension of self care.
Using therapy grade essentail oils for relaxation and to calm anxiety has been a tremendous help when I am on the go and have taken on more than I should. I never travel without them!
I use essential oils to make my own body care and home cleaning products so I know they are not toxic and they smell wonderful.
I also love using them to help boost my immune system and naturally ease the discomfort of symptoms without masking them.
Want to know how to get started on your essential oil journey?
I believe that women need to be a little bit more selfish, especially when they are pregnant or preparing for pregnancy. It's more than self care, it is establishing the blueprint of their child and for generations to come.
I believe we are aching for solutions to chronic health issues that stop us from living the best versions of ourselves. Western medicine is irreplaceable and absolutely necessary but filling our bodies with chemicals is making our society sick rather than healthy.
Using essential oils to replace the products we use on our bodies and in our homes is the most effective way we can reduce the toxic load that we expose ourselves to everyday.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are concentrated extracts obtained from plants. The oils are highly concentrated, it can take thousands of pounds of plant material to produce just one pound of essential oil.
Keep in mind that in many cases, the essential oil of an herb is hundreds of times more concentrated than a dried herb itself.
For example, 1 drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea!

Not all essential oils are created equal. In fact, some essential oil companies produce oils that contain synthetic fillers that diminish their health benefits.
This is why it is so important to use pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that are sourced around the globe where the plants grow naturally and in abundance. Essential oils are so powerful and are being researched in depth due to their tremendous benefits.
It is so important to choose a company that you can trust, that is doing their diligence to provide you with access to scientific information and transparency. One of my favourite resources is Aromatic Science.
I chose doTerra because of the therapeutic benefits and quality of their oils and their care of the planet and the communities that the oils impact. DoTerra 's Healing Hands Foundation and Co-Impact Sourcing have freed communities of disease and poverty and helped to protect the agriculture that these communities rely on.
