I created this space as a place for me to share these loves and passions of mine; what makes my heart beat and colors my days alive. My hope is that this blog is filled with the realness, the rawness, the beautiful, the heart stirring, gut aching, shakey nervousness, slow and pensive, wild and thriving thoughts and moments of LIFE.

My Skin

Alright friends. Buckle up because I’m about to get vulnerable 😳

4 years ago, I was taking Minocycline and using a prescription cream to help my acne that I had dealt with since high school.

At first I didn’t care about the side effects, I just wanted clear skin. And then my face starting being red constantly. It started peeling. It hurt to touch it. And my acne was still there. So I started to dig further. If this was happening to my face what else was happening INSIDE of my body!? 😬

The answer was not good, so I quit. I decided to change some things to see if I could find something that was better for me, yet still gave me the results I wanted. Diet, water, taking a look at hormones, and other changes. (Hint: 4 years ago I also bought a kit of essential oils and fell madly in love… 😜 )

And it worked. To this day my skin is better than its ever been in my entire life. My diet still isn’t amazing and I still suck at water intake but I try to do better and I have stuck with the other changes I made that help immensely.

So to say I’m excited about what YL just launched today would be an understatement. Young Living cares SO MUCH about us & what we put on our bodies. And they put real thought behind all of their products, including their brand new ACNE TREATMENT. It contains the maximum amount of salicylic acid allowed in an OTC acne treatment (from our very own Wintergreen Essential Oil.) and it’s also formulated with very specific essential oils (like Manuka, Frankincense, Rosemary, Tea tree, Lavender, Geranium, and Chamomile… all of which I have been using on the regular for the past four years!) that combat the drying effects of salicylic acid & nourish your skin. 🙌

There’s absolutely no reason to turn your face into a peeling, hurts-to-touch piece of sand paper. No reason at all. I’ve been there. And I’m your friend and I won’t allow it!

So I’m creating a custom starter kit for all you friends who are still on the fence about oils but want some help in the acne department, NATURALLY!

The custom kit will include the brand new Orange Blossom Line (face wash for daily use, charcoal bar soap to reduce toxins on your skin and a moisturizer) which helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, a bottle of Stress Away because we all know what stress causes 😉, the Maximum Strength Acne Treatment, extra goodies & samples, access to our community and a YL membership that comes with a shiny 24% discount!

If you want the full break down of each of the products included & how to get your hands on this, click here.

Get that acne-free, glowy & radiant skin friend. You deserve it!
