“Never forget your ability to learn without being taught. We are each born with the ability to observe this world through all of our senses and to know how to live as part of it. Structured education is an overrated privilege.” - said me after 5 years of tertiary education & the beginning of a quarter-life crisis! Ha!
My education journey took me through a deep understanding of the human body. I started out with Human Movement studies, learning about the whole body; later switching over to Radiography, honing in on the sum of our parts - every single nook and cranny.
Then I started asking the bigger questions; where do I want to fit into this health world? What is my purpose?
Treatment & Diagnostics were not the answer for me! I wanted to be an advocate for illness prevention and a steward for mama nature.
So, after travelling for a year - I settled on a Nutritional Medicine degree, with Cyndi Omeara as my biggest inspiration.
Who knew that my career evolution wouldn’t stop here! Whilst filling my brain to max capacity with allll the nutritional biochemistry - I was having my own realisations about healing.
I was noticing that while good nutrition is foundational to wellness, BEYOND that, our lifestyle, environment and emotional wellbeing are vital pieces to the puzzle.
So I did something a bit wild. I decided not practice as a nutritionist. I packed away my white lab coat, put on my hippie pants and learned the art of Flower Essence therapy & essential oil aromatics for emotional healing. I started teaching powerful mindfulness techniques at a mental health retreat. I chose to add the element of dance as a healing medium, becoming a CharkraDance facilitator.
The thought of putting your diet into a food analysis program, coming up with a meal plan for you to follow and prescribing you nutraceuticals absolutely bores me. I bet it bores you too!
I want you help you remember the wisdom your body holds. I want to empower you to know that eating whole foods is simple and natural. I want to know what emotions you are carrying, what are your worries, what is holding you back.
And with all the tools afforded to me, guide you to the truest expression of YOU!

I'm going to Colombia at the end of the month for a 6 week internship in the jungle... and the nervousness is kicking in! So I've raided the apothecary shelves to make myself this remedy I dubbed "everything will be ok". Full of flower essences, anxiolytic herbs and crystal infused goodness 🙌🏼 If anyone needs to stock up on flower essences, aloe vera, healing balm or beauty elixir cream before I go, please get in touch 💕
Buying herb orders this big feels like some kind of graduation into a "next level" :) These are my big bags of chamomile and skullcap from Pacific Botanicals, who provide awesome quality herbs. I wildcraft about 70% of the medicines I make, but I do have to buy some herbs. :)

Veggie stir fry tonight was a success! Baby broccoli, corn, & water chestnuts stir fried in liquid aminos & a little soy sauce with fried tofu and udon 🍜 noodles. I had some sautéed rainbow 🌈 chard on the side (Ryan ate his straight from the leaf). I think we liked the tofu part the best; cut extra thin and cooked on high heat with olive oil in a cast iron pan...about 5 minutes on each side ~ so good! #eatorganic#eattherainbow
I am so stunned and honored by how beautiful this photo is and what a beautifully written review @bianca_beatz515 did on my products, thank you so much, beautiful! You made my day over here ✨🌿❤️ #Repost @bianca_beatz5150 (@get_repost)
October is a time where it is said that the veil between the world of the dead and the world of the living is at it's thinnest. Some pay homage to their loved ones who have traveled on by leaving a plate of food out or a glass of wine. I will burn candles window side to illuminate our ancestor's path of travel. I will also anoint my family & I with 'Dragons's Blood' to bless & protect us. And just when I thought October 2017 couldn't get any more rad, it did! I fell in love with @beladoceskin Apothecary & I have a feeling you will too! First of all, just look at their packaging! There's nothing more I adore then "old world" labels & glass bottles to add to my collection of potions & lotions. Now, take a look at the official Halloween Bar! These limited edition 'Bela Fantasma' dragons blood and activated charcoal soaps are enhanced with dark rose. Scented with pure rose, cedar, and amyris essential oils & stamped with skulls, ribs & boney hands. Dragons blood is an ancient tree resin native to South American rainforests, which effectively treats a wide range skin ailments including inflammation, itching, wounds, infections, pain and swelling due to insect bites. The 'Bela Calma' bar uses turmeric & other herbal natural ingredients to calm, relieve & treat chronic redness, rashy breakouts & rosacea. The 'Calma Mask' soothes & cools using the same formula as the popular Bela Calma Rosacea Soap. And the 'Terra Wash' is an indulgent mud soap, perfect for a gentle clean of the pores using refreshing spearmint, passionflower, honey, witch hazel purifying Moroccan red clay to balance the skin without overdrying it. This entire collection of products simply knocked my socks off from the design to the ingredients. The proof is certainly in the puddin' & one of you will get to experience Bela Doce Apothecary with me! So turn on those post notifications & stay tuned! (Link in bio)

You are the Pill.
Nobody else can manifest 💖 or $$ for you. Nobody else can bring you the cure to ure emotional pains. Nobody else can bring you the pleasure you desire. Nobody else keeps you playing + living small.
You are the sexually awakened masterpiece.
You are the badass money maker who manifests $$ in the bank.
You are the life-artist of your dreams.
Witness. Release. Love. Receive.
And Repeat. Over and over again.
You are waiting.
You are here.
I love you.
The long way home is through
The field that yearns, meanders
Under the Woodland alive, burns
alone, patient, wild.
With the call of the nightjar, dusk
Melts to twilight, crickets quiet
Yet cacophonous, introverted
divulged to the earth.
I rest in silence, silhouette
Along my shadow, paleo-granite
Imbricate, soft brunette soil
sex, aroma, sweat.
I surrender to the night, moon
Lights a path through bunchgrass
Textured and crosshatched, lapped
The path I came

Serious anti-viral and anti-bacterial support 🙌🏻 because ain't nobody got time to get sick...am I right? #oilhack : I take two softgels poke a hole and squeeze into a roller bottle and top with fractionated coconut oil for a pre-made roller for my little man that keeps him healthy. #BONUS : Melissa oil is a powerhouse all on her own but is super pricey...this way I get the benefits of Melissa without the price tag 🙌🏻 #doterra#peace &passionoils #plantmedicine#onguard + #oilsforthewin
The bright beauty of Arctic Thyme (Thymus praecox) in Iceland. Thyme
has long been regarded as a plant that targets the upper jiao- the heart and lungs. It helps us to breathe life in and release what's no longer needed such as stagnated grief. Flower essences often stimulate healing dreams as a way to help the psyche cleanse itself. Thyme flower essence helps us release non-beneficial ties and traumatic memory by helping us to heal, forgive and release. Also, it can help us transform unhealthy social and religious prejudices and conditioning into a more inclusive compassionate reality.
It's a great flower essence for bringing us into the now. Thyme could be seen as working on what's referred to as the heart blood in Chinese medicine as it works to ignite enthusiasm, passion for life and joy. 🌿♥️🌿(I put this expert releaser into our new clearing mist, Pure Space Misting Potion).
Have you ever felt magnetized to a place?
Have you ever felt so called to a place you've never been to before (in this lifetime 😜) that you just had to go there no matter what you had to do to make it happen? 🇲🇽
That's how I felt about this place! 💫😊✨
Not knowing why, I rented a car and dragged my sweet siSTAR ✨@noplansplease from her paradise in Tulum 🌊 close to the Belize 🇧🇿border, suffering many gas station rip offs, slamming over unexpected topes, (whoops! Good thing rental car companies don't check the bottoms of cars! 😮) drinking loads of coconut water, chanting Shanti mantras, hours into the jungle on a narrow, curvy, very rain torn road, spotted with wild cats, tarantulas, monkeys, deer, animals I've never seen before and a whole array of birds, bats, butterflies, dragonflies, mosquitoes and insects...Through torrential downpours, raging heat and humidity (I didn't know I could sweat through my hair! Jajajaja) and did I mention the clouds of mosquitos? To this place in the jungle that was whispering through the winds into the very depths of soul. ☀️🌴⚡️
I heard the call and made my offerings humbly to our ancestors...and listened to the lessons they shared with me that were so profound, I burst into tears of joy on top of the highest structure in this area and felt an overwhelming sense of heart opening joy!!! ✨🕉💫
My soul recognized this place, got super charged with cosmic energy and it felt like coming hOMe again...
Ah Spring....you are so lovely but I struggle with hay fever so much that I do kind of dread this time of year 🌱🌼🌿🌸 Sure, the days are getting longer and the weather warmer but my eyes are so crazy itchy that I just want to claw them out and sneezing - 🤧🤧🤧 - I don't just sneeze once but at least a dozen times every few minutes (it's at this time of year that I honestly question whether my sneezing can be counted as a form of exercise 😆) So these three oils are an absolute must for me when my allergies are out of control!! They are in my diffuser, I take them internally AND I have a rollerball made up to apply them topically 💜🍋🍃 If you want to find out more about these amazing oils + how you can get them, let me know!
MY SICK BABY NATURAL REMEDIES // BOOST IMMUNITY: echinacea tincture, honey infused with garlic & onions (because he’s over 1 year), broth + nutrient dense foods.
RELIEVE STUFFY NOSE + COUGH: suction!, peppermint/eucalyptus oil on chest, peppermint e.o. in bath water.
SLEEP AID: eucalyptus + lavender e.o. in diffuser at night, chamomile herbal tea mixed in with bottle before bed, chamomile tincture in the evening, lavender in bath water as well.
🌹R O S E 🌹...soooo amazing that this queen is now available to purchase 🙌🏻 Did you know that rose oil is the highest vibe oil that you can find? Did you also know that it takes 12,000 rose petals to make a single 5ml bottle? Which is why in order to make this incredible oil sustainable and accessible to all of us dōterra has launched rose in the touch line. Due to the high vibe nature of this oil it is AMAZING for those of us needing a little extra support when it comes to depression and moving through the process of grief. ROSE is the oil of "divine love" ❤️which makes it a powerhouse in healing our hearts and helping us to move into feeling whole and authentic again. This oil truly does have magical powers...this is a must have in everyone's home 🌹❤️ #dōterra#peace &passionoils #ROSE#highvibes#plantmedicine
The cool thing about Doterra is the is the amount of recognition they give to each and every person. Whether big or small, they recognize each success along the journey to diamond and beyond.
With 5,000,000 advocates they could just let it be, knowing they would be getting their money, but they don't. They make it a point to show each person how important what we are doing is. It's so amazing and I'm grateful for this journey and the choice I made in April to build a dōTERRA organization and spread these gifts of the earth.
Are you ready to get yours and join the club?
♥️We all need to unplug and self love a little more. A few months ago I finally became pregnant and then a few weeks later found out I lost my angel baby.👼🏽 I really felt like my whole world had caved in, I didn't know how I could continue on.. but I did , trying to heal and still be of service. The universe let me know I was doing too much , I was being a giver (as us light workers are) and not taking enough time for me. I began to heal again doing kambo, bufo , energy womb cleansings, and finally met my doula friend Rommi and had the most amazing yoni steam session with her, finaaally letting go! And now being able to talk and share my experience and learn and grow from this so I can support other goddesses going through the same thing.
I've met so much soul fam through instagrm that I wanted to share this journey with you. I'm pregnant again🤰🏻 I don't know what the future holds , but I know that I am taking more time to receive love and let those that care for me do more and feel ok with it.
When you align with your truth , you align with those people that love you unconditionally and will come to your house to bring you food or are willing to work for you so that you can just rest or come and play with your kids to take some slack off. I'm really grateful for all the angels in my life showering me with love and all you that have sent messages or are simply keeping me in your prayers. I FEEL it..Feeling everything so deeply over here 😅. I know I mentioned it on Sunday at our feeding the homeless event but I'll say it again.. THANK YOU♥️🌹+ LETS LOVE OURSELVES.💋
