‘Cleansing’ and ‘detox’ seem to be popular words these days.
Wherever you read nowadays you see something about cleansing, especially come spring. Maybe you have experienced a cleanse, you regularly cleanse or you’ve considered doing one yourself. I wanted to take the time to educate you on why you’d want to cleanse and how it will contribute to vibrant glowing health.
Do you ever experience bloating, bowel issues, digestive difficulties, moodiness, skin problems, fatigue or even headaches and poor concentration?
These are some of the symptoms that come along with toxicity. The good news is there is a lot that can be done to remedy these symptoms so you can begin to live a beautiful life with endless energy, restful sleep, and balanced hormones.
Here’s the thing. The amount of toxins we take in on a daily basis is far more than our grandparents did in an entire lifetime. Even though we were created with detoxification organs, if they are clogged they will not function at their best leaving us overloaded.
Take for example our vehicles. We all take our vehicles in for regular oil changes. The car runs much more smoothly after an oil change, right?
So why then do we cleanse our cars but we don’t regularly cleanse our organs? It’s important for the functioning and strength of our organs to make this a part of our lifestyle.
There are different cleanses on the market. From juice cleanses, eating clean, single organ cleanses to full body cellular cleanses. I personally have done most of these cleanses and my fav is the whole body cellular cleanse.
A whole body cellular cleanse does not just focus on one organ but the entire body. With the herbs and essential oils used, the organs are supported as the body cleanses. Its safe and effective and will leave you feeling glowingly awesome!!!
If you’re new to cleansing you can always start by eating more fresh and clean foods. When we eat packaged and refined foods they typically are not from nature and therefore the body doesn’t know what to do with them. The body becomes overloaded with ingredients that “clog” the body therefore not allowing it to work optimally.
Whether you’re on a cleanse or you’d like to clean our your diet these are the foods to minimize or avoid altogether:
- White foods (rice, bread, pasta, crackers)
- Foods in a package (this is anything)
- Sugar-laden foods (sugars are found in almost everything packaged so start reading labels) this is why fresh is best
What about foods to incorporate into your day
- Fresh Produce
- More green foods (spinach, kale, collards, romaine)
- Clean water
- Herbal tea
- Fresh herbs
- Legumes (add a meatless Monday into your week)
- Clean meat – free of steroids, hormones, antibiotics
These foods are cleansing in nature and very clean which allows cells to use as energy while cleansing at the same time. Although this I believe should be a daily focus, I do believe that we all need to deep cleanse 2-4 times yearly. To assist in the cleansing process adding in holistic lifestyle habits is key.
- Dry Skin Brushing
- Drinking Kangen Hydrogen-rich water
- Adding DoTerra lemon oil to enhance the cleansing process
- Daily movement to increase energy in the body to move toxins
- Hot bath with DoTerra juniper berry and lavender
- Adding in DoTerra Zendocrine blend- a blend of oils to aid in detoxification of organs cells
- As we approach spring, I invite you to look at how you can incorporate some of these ideas into your regimen or consider a deep cleanse.
I believe that creating a lifestyle is key! To create a glowing healthy life you need to start with one or two things and make it a habit.

Here’s to glowing health,
Welcome to the month of love……
This month in The Beautiful Living Collective I wanted to dedicate everything we do to making more time for you. It’s THAT important!
Do you ever find yourself with no time left in the day to get to those things you wanted to do for yourself?
Maybe you’re like I used to be, and you have great intentions to have a bath with candles and the most beautiful essential oils, or get to your workout but…. the kids have to be picked up or someone needs your time.
Honey, I get it because I’ve been there. What I know for certain, is that if you put off making time for you, your mind body health will suffer. Not to mention, your hormones and energy will start to scream at you for help. It’s just the way it works.
Think about what you’ve really wanted to do but haven’t found the time.
Hide in Starbucks with a latte and scroll social media…
Take a couple hours to enjoy the spa, the gym, a yoga class, something that fills your cup…
What is it that you would love to do this month but haven’t yet?
I’m dedicating this month of LOVE to inspire you to fill your cup, make time for YOU and really take your love of self seriously.
Why? Because you matter!!
I used to think self-care was selfish. For real, I did. I never grew up seeing women around me taking time out for themselves. Back in the ’70s and ’80s (well ’90s too) there wasn’t this talk about “self-care”. How dare you take time for you when everyone else needs you. This is what was “normal” for women to hear and believe.
Well, I’m changing that. I want to inspire you to change the way you view self-care. I want you to start believing that the time you take for yourself impacts every aspect of your mental, emotional and physical well-being. Your life force vitality relies on you making time for you!!!
Starting self-care rituals will assist in hormone balance, more energy, mental stability, healthy weight management, emotional balance, less anxiety, less cravings, and so much more.
Remember: Your vitality, peace and overall wellness rely on you making time for yourself!!
This month, I’ve created for you the “Self-care Guide for the Busy Momma.” This guide is for you to begin to incorporate new self care habits that can change your life. You may start with one at a time and then add on as you make them a habit. I just want you to start and take action!
Click here to download guide!
I am also offering a free 7 Day “Make Time for Yourself” Challenge. This challenge is happening live over on FB in my private group click here to join FB group if you want to join us.
To really create more calm, peace, joy, vitality that my Beautiful Living Collective teaches, requires you to begin to look at what needs to be incorporated into your day to make it more beautiful.
Let’s start with your self-care….shall we?
It’s amazing to me how it’s closer to February that we were to December.
And because time flies by so quickly, I wanted to check in with you to see how the New Year is starting out for you.
This year I’m committed to bringing you more blogs around how you can really live into that abundant, vibrant, glowing life.
The New Year always brings us all a fresh start. This is the time we begin to revisit past desires and begin to work towards new ones. Every year statistics state the top two goals are around health. Are we surprised?
Most people desire to live their best life. To live our best life requires us to examine our wellness on a daily basis.
Over the many years, I’ve worked in the wellness industry, I’ve come to realize that the most important area when it comes to success in anything and to really live into your most glowing self is….can you guess what it is?
Making your Self Care a priority!
Your self-care is the top priority when it comes to stress management, creating glowing health, managing mental and emotional health, being the best mom, daughter, sister, and friend that you can be and really living a life that you can truly say ‘I am fulfilled’.
Are you like how I was a few years ago where I would be doing all the things for all the people and had nothing left over to really be my best self, taking care of myself in a way that creates change around me and serves in a way that really made a difference?
What I realized was that we are here to serve. I recognized that I am here to serve the women who are seeking a more natural, less toxic, lighter, free-er way of living. Women who want to grow into a level of health that allows them to inspire their children to become their best self and in doing so create financial freedom and time freedom so they have choices and not bound to someone else ‘s dream and schedule.
What is it that you desire in your life? How do you want to show up for your children, friends, and family? Are you living just comfortable or do you desire more but are not quite sure how to make it happen? Are you feeling as if there is more to life than what you’re living right now?
If you’re ready to level up your health this year in all areas of my holistic model then it’s important to take your self-care seriously.
The first self care practice that I believe is key to starting your day powerfully. I practice this daily and it has helped me build more confidence in myself, manage stress and create a high vibe state that keeps me feeling great.
Are you ready?
Self Care Practice #1
AM/PM Routine – Daily structure is important for the brain, it helps in creating neural networks that create the habits that you do on a daily basis.

Recently I was interviewed by a woman who started ‘Moms with Dreams’. Erica Gordon is a mom herself and has a dream to impact woman to bring their dreams into reality. Of course, when we met online we instantly connected because I have a similar vision. I not only want to impact moms but women globally.
I know you have a dream because if you didn’t you wouldn’t be reading this right now. As children, dreaming was easy and we certainly believed that our dreams could become our reality.
What were your dreams as a child? Were you told “keep on dreaming” or “dreams are meant to just be dreams” or “only in your dreams”? Have you put your dreams on hold? Do you believe your dreams can manifest into the life you always desired?
Well guess what? It’s time to start dreaming, keep dreaming and never give up on them because they can be your reality. I know, mine are becoming my reality. The difference? I didn’t listen to the nay Sayers and I didn’t give up even when I would question if it was really going to happen.
Take a farmers garden for example. When the farmer plants the seeds, they are under soil and it looks like nothing is there. After much watering and sunshine, weeks later you see small growth but certainly nothing to jump in your skin about. What happens with patience? All of a sudden plants start shooting up. What was nothing became something.
In the picture below you see my first garden that I planted this year. Now, it’s been trimmed A LOT because it has grown abundantly. How you ask? We planted the seeds and waited as we watered. My kids even said ‘when are the plants going to start to grow, I see nothing’ What a perfect teaching opportunity we used it as. Here is a tip I am giving you to help your garden within grow. Begin to speak exactly what it is you want to grow. I spoke over that garden that it was growing and flourishing and we’d have plenty of food. It may sound funny BUT people ask me still how my garden is the way it is in only its first year.
Speak what you want not what you see!
I’m sharing my interview with you here in hopes that it will inspire you to dream, reach your dreams and encourage others to do the same. Remember that when you step out you give silent permission to allow others to do the same.
