Rugrats on Oils

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.

When you're new to sobriety, or any recovery really, you are told to fake it till you make it.  Essentially what you’re being told is, have an optimistic attitude and that the only way to get to the other side of something (my addiction) is through it.  Well, I have fo...

The Fourth of July is and always has been special to me. Towards the end of my active addiction I can't recall celebrating it in anyway that I am proud of.  In fact, the last 4th of July I spent drinking back in 2013 was my last hoorah with alcohol. Go big or go home....

Last but not least, embrace the chaos.  If you don't, the chaos will rob you of your joy.  Don't set expectations around a to-do list because it'll never get done in one day.  Make a "To-do-this-month" list, and keep is to the minimum.  Be gratefu...
