Thrive and Be Well
I provide essential oils and other options for eliminating toxins and teach classes both online and in person to educate families on how oils can better support health and wellness, especially during pregnancy, birth and beyond! Popular classes include Essential Oils 101, All Things Baby & Essential Oils, Ditch and Switch Ideas for eliminating toxins, and overall Wellness Classes, but I can tailor classes to fit what you are hoping to learn.
My goal is to bring health and wellness to families by helping eliminate toxins from the home through the use of products such as essential oils, household/cleaning supplies, personal care products, supplements, make up and more.
The products I offer are all plant-based, non-toxic options that have upped my own family’s health and wellness in so many ways! Being an expecting/new mama brings so many questions and I am here to help support the different issues that arise. Physical and emotional support, looking at ways to banish unnecessary chemicals from the home so your sweet baby (and whole family) isn’t exposed to them, to decrease your carbon footprint, and so much more. My mission is to help you feel empowered to take control of your family’s health and wellness decisions!
I’m a mama to three young kids, and when I found out I was pregnant in 2011, it became more important to me to look at our lifestyle and try to make the best choices for our baby and us as we could, in terms of living “clean and green.” I started searching out options that were non-toxic and healthier. This started with things such as cloth diapering, using natural laundry soap, and organic foods. As I delved deeper into this topic it was like going down a rabbit hole! So. Many. Things. To. Consider! I’ve been shocked to learn how many nasty chemicals are found in our food, household and personal care products, over the counter medication, prescriptions medication and so much more. The lack of transparency from companies really gets my fired up and I am on a mission to educate others so they can make better choices for their family too!
In April 2016, my husband couldn’t sleep to save his life. He was taking Benedryl every night, his doctor had offered a prescription sleep aid, and we knew we couldn’t continue living like that. My sister offered me some essential oils and a diffuser, telling us to just try them. I had tried oils before and while I thought they smelled nice, I didn’t notice any kind of therapeutic value. I was a total skeptic that these oils could help support my husband’s sleep, so imagine my surprise when he slept like a rock right out of the gate! We have continued to use oils to support healthy sleep and would be lost with out them.
That led us down the path of looking at how oils can support other issues we faced, such as eczema, allergies and stress. I started researching and trying oils for new issues, and quickly became addicted! I used oils to help get me through my most recent pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I wish I’d had them during my first two pregnancies! We now use oils on a daily basis to support different physical and emotional aspects of our bodies and household. The possibilities are seriously endless in how they can help! In addition to oils, we now use plant-based products for cleaning, skincare, personal care, and nutrition/supplements. We have been able to ditch a whole slew of items in our life for natural alternatives. It’s been a slow shift to healthier living and we just love it!
Part of my services include teaching classes on healthier living. Before having children, I was a teacher for nearly 10 years. I am so thankful to work from home so I can spend lots of time with my family and tap into my teacher brain to help others benefit from essential oils and other healthy products.
I teach a whole range of classes, both online and in-person. Some of the most popular topics are Essential Oils 101, Ditch And Switch Classes (looking at ways to swap common products with toxins out for non-toxic items), Wellness on the Whole (ways to bring wellness into all aspects of life), and Non-Toxic Cleaning classes. I am also now offering Natural Make Up and Skin Care classes.
Classes are generally free, or for a small fee for any materials needed. If you are interested in having me teach a class, please reach out and we will find what the best fit would be! I always tailor my classes to meet the needs of my students.
