Many of you know that my husband and I started down a new career path about 2 years ago. After becoming extremely sick with migraines when I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I started researching like crazy. I wanted to figure out what was causing this response in my body and what could be done. The migraines would begin anytime I would smell a perfume, deodorant, laundry detergent, etc.
I had assumed my sensitivity would wane after having my son but it did not. I still get awful headaches from people walking by me or the stores with all their smells.
I became really passionate about helping others learn natural living when I studied what happens to your body as you wear, breathe and pile up these posions in your body (come on, did you think the supermarket was selling you something good for $1.97?)
Do you like your lungs? Your heart? Your brain cells? How about your blood stream? Do you enjoy breathing?
In April, I am starting a 30 day toxin detox program for those of you who want to see how good you really could feel. You may be quite surprised!
Please, please, please hear my heart. I didn’t stop providing full-time mental health therapy after 3 different college degrees just because I thought it would be fun to play in Shea Butter all day (even though that is fun 😊). I added a natural living career to my life because I want you to experience life to the fullest- to feel and function at your best- to enjoy life because you feel good!
Providing therapy lets me help people clean out the gunk inside so they can function healthily again. Providing natural living training lets me help people clean out the gunk on the outside so they can live their best life.
(*note* I cannot provide both for you- I can be your therapist OR your natural living coach but I cannot legally provide both- and I don’t want to!!! Lol!!! 💟)
It is OK to take care of yourself! Take the time to invest in YOU- your health- both physically and mentally! So many people tell me, “Bobbie-jo, I really want to go natural because ______________ (fill in the blank) but I just don’t have the time to learn it all.”
Well, let’s address that.
1) When it comes to your wellness, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW. Period. End Sentence. 🙂
2) You don’t have to be a DIY Diva to empower yourself to a better life!
That’s what I’m here for! I will help you take one step at a time into the life you would rather live!
I am an educated Country/Hollywood type girl, so you know what that means? It means that I will help you peg down natural living in a way that is thoroughly researched, tried and true, easy to understand and a whole lotta fun! 😉
Do you want me to be your personal, down-to-earth and NORMAL wellness coach? Of course you do 😉 Send me a PM on my FB page! I have to divvy up my time so it will be first come first serve!
Everything feels better after a bath, am I right? Well let me tell you what I learned (well remembered) the hard way today…. Grapefruit Essential Oil: I love it for MANY things, but throwing a ton of drops in the tub, is NOT one of them! I feel a little “stingy” – I imagine this is how a jellyfish feels 24/7 lol
BUT let me share a fantastic soak with you- sans grapefruit! 🙂 Ok mixologists, are you ready? Grab equal parts Epsom salts, some pink Himalayan salts and a bit o’ baking soda. Add to it some Lavender and Lemongrass, maybe a little Sage if you’re feeling crazy 😉 Make sure this is a lid on this and shake it but don’t break it! (Creepy memory LOL: My dad used to go around the house and sing to my mom “Shake it but don’t break it; took your mama 9 months to make it…” Can we all just have a big EWW moment for the kid inside and then a sappy AWWW moment for how much they loved – and still love- each other? 🙂 ) ANYWAY- enjoy that Spring-scented soak!! Who is ready for Spring?? Me! (Minus the allergies but I am grateful that I FINALLY found something that gives them a big ol’ KO!)
So I have to tell you TWO more things!
I wonder how chocolate became associated with pretty much every single holiday? Oh to be so popular that we were needed at every major event! LOL 🙂 I don’t have to ponder very long why chocolate has made its way into practically every celebration: The stuff is Delicious! Dark, Milk, White, Semi-Sweet, and even straight up, unsweetened Cacao – I like it all! But my favorite, oh Lord help me, is Easter Candy… Cadbury, how could you?! There is nothing “good” for you in a Cadbury chocolate, but there is caramel, marshmallow, gooey Cadbury egg filling (what is that stuff anyway?)… oh my!
So even though I am now craving some thick, rich, chocolatey truffle, this DIY has NOTHING to do with eating chocolate! Nope. Zilch. Nada. Nothin’. So don’t worry- your hips are safe. Your lips, however, well that’s up to you!
If you want softer, smoother, lips for Valentine’s Day (or just because!), here is one for you, my friend!
1.5 tsp Raw, Organic, Unrefined Coconut Oil, melted
1/4 tsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp organic sugar
1/4 tsp local honey
1/8 tsp non-GMO Vanilla Extract
1,5 tsp grated organic chocolate (optional)
Melt the coconut oil (ideally over a double boiler). Combine all ingredients. Put in container and store in a cool, dark place. This recipe will make about 1 ounce of product. Gently rub over your lips, using a circular motion. Rinse. Repeat process a few times per week. Don’t put scrub on open sores or cuts on lips.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner! Do you find that the man in your life is hard to shop for? Are you up late searching Amazon for ideas? I have been there too, my friend, until I realized that all your man wants – IS YOU!
Don’t miss the show this Friday (Feb. 9) at 11am on WSLS10 where I am going to show you a way to bring some confidence back into your bedroom! It may be cold outside, but your love life doesn’t have to be 😉 Let’s warm things up a little on Daytime Blue Ridge this Friday at 11am 🙂
You know, I think most of us (or at least I do!) go about life thinking that we are pretty dang interesting. Who wouldn’t want to be our friend? We (to quote the ’90s) are the bombdotcom, amiright?!
So today I had big plans on the schedule: Clean mine and my husband’s bed room. 😱 Despite the monsterous mountain this was going to be to climb, I was actually looking forward to it. Because making time to do deep cleaning that goes beyond the every day basics, just feels good! And with my time being so limited (you know the drill- kids, hubby, career[s], house, family, friends etc.), I had to pick and choose and drop things off of my “all-important schedule” in order to pencil this in.
Well, as I was vacuuming today, my dreams came crashing down. I was looking for the super suction button on my vacuum hose. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it before but now that I knew it was there, I couldn’t wait to make up for lost time! This is going to change everything- I just know it! So I am searching, flipping this vacuum from one side to the next and upside down thinking, I know I found a super suction button – where did it go?!? I’m trying every button on the cleaner but I CAN’T FIND IT ANYWHERE!!!!
Have you guessed where this is heading? … Yeah. That’s right. I DREAMT that my vacuum had a super-suction button. And I’m not sure if this is a blog right now or a confessional. I mean, who dreams that?!? Surely my brain could conjure up much more exciting things for me to dream about?!?! But nope. I dreamt of a super- suction button that I found on my vacuum after all this time and was so excited to use it. I gotta be honest- a part of me withered inside when I realized it was
Just. A. Dream.
Alright dream analysts of the world, Fruedian followers, psychological pursuers and thought-thinkers: was this a dream within a dream, with some hidden meaning crouching down deep in my psyche, or did I really just dream about a better way to clean my house?? ….
