Growing through what I'm going through.

I'm a mama to three beautiful children- Hawk, Scout and Saylor Verity. I've attained my co-occurring counseling master's degree and plan to return to work as a mental health counselor for postpartum mothers, once my children are in grade school. For now, I'm making my living as your oily lady & I'm just here to help you do the best you can on your chemical free, and natural alternatives journey.  It was really overwhelming to me, when I first started with oils, and it doesn't have to be that way.  I love to incorporate oils into my mental health practices, life in addiction recovery, and provide healthy coping mechanisms for my kiddos- in hopes that they don't grow up and turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with things like I did.

J.C.’s Apple Sauce

So, when I put out the question on my IG stories, “do you want me to share the recipe?”, I was feeling motivated.  In that moment, I had forgotten I also have a 2 and 3-year-old, in addition to a breastfed baby to take care of.  I also didn’t think pe...

There are moms on Instagram, and then there are Moms on Instagram.  You know what I mean . You're either one or the other:

1) The mom with the pretty feed, sponsorship, tons of followers and different companies sending you products to be ambassadors of their brand,...

Last week, Jon and I decided we needed a family day. We said goodbye to the messy kitchen, yard chores, and to-do-lists, hopped in the truck and decided to take the kids on a ferry ride across the Sound.  Typically, I take this opportunity to blow up my FB albums with...

I want to start this post off with a little experiment. 

Name 5 things you can confidently say you like about yourself. 

Ask your child, five things he or she likes about his or herself.


If you're like me, you couldn't with 100% confidence, name those 5 things abou...

Does anyone else get caught up in the, “I can’t wait”s of life that you don’t embrace the gifts of today? 

I’m not talking about not being able to wait for vacation, Trump’s term to be over, or world peace. 

I’m talking about the “I can’t wait for him to sleep throu...

Here's the deal you guys-  When I got pregnant in the Summer of 2016, it wasn't planned.  Neither was the miscarriage.  Two ways of God working in our lives, that I had absolutely no control over.  In processing that baby's loss (I call her my M&M baby) with Jon, we we...
