Aug 17, 2019

My Fave Back to School Healthy Habits👇🏻🌱 🌸 Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite healthy habits that perfect for back to school time!🌱👌🏻 🌸 If you want some great essential oil recipes for school time, then make sure to check my last 3 posts for diffuser blends, roller blends, sprays, and more!😉 🌱 Next up are these Back to School Healthy Habits: ✔️Use oils daily- one way to make sure you are doing this is to keep them out where you can see them. I love to keep them throughout my home on counters, shelves, in bathrooms, and more! That way it's quick to grab them & use whenever you need to! ✔️Probiotics- taking these each day has helped our family with immune support and so much more! ✔️Supplements- since we don't get all the nutrients we need from our diet alone, it's important to take supplements each day. We take the Lifelong Vitality Supplements from doTERRA. Zeke takes the A to Z chewables and loves them! As he is getting older, he is getting more picky with the food he eats so I love knowing his growing body is getting the extra support. ✔️Water & Rest- some of the most important habits to remember is to get enough water and rest each day. These are so important anytime of the year, but especially during the hustle and bustle of back to school.🍎 🌱 What are your fave healthy habits for this time of year?👇🏻✨🌱💕 . . . . . #oilymama #backtoschool #backtoschool2019 #oilymom #healthyhabits #school2019 #doterra #doterraessentialoils #aromatherapy #essentialoil #crunchymomma #naturalmom #oillife #doterralove #healthandwellness #naturalremedies #holisticlifestyle #doterraoils #naturalliving #essentialoillife #healthyfamily #momlife #doterralife #healthyandhappy #essentialoilsrock #essentialoils101 #holisticmama #essentialoils

My Arie. The leader. The strong minded, but kind. The independent, do it all baby of mine. You have been an absolute joy in our lives. You makes us laugh and loose our minds at the same time. We envy your courage, your strength and most of all your sense of independence. You and your sister Malia are complete opposite in so many ways, but the two of you are inseparable. I love watching you grow and learn from your sister. Realizing that you’re not the baby anymore makes me so sad. I can’t wait to see how you are as a big sister! I love you so much my love. 🥰 #secondborn #middlechild #strongwilledchild #independentchild #mommysleader #gentleparenting #attachmentparenting #morherhoodinanutshell #crunchymomma #naturalmindedmama #playfulparenting #mindfulmomma

Aug 17, 2019

They say to truly form a new habit it takes 66 days. Start with a 5 minute habit. Imagine how much 5 minutes of intention each day for 66 days could do for your life. That’s only 5.5 hours total. It could be writing, praying, dancing or sitting in silence. Honestly, I could use 5 minutes of all these habits in my life. That’s only 22 hours of intentional moments in the next 66 days to crush these new habits!! WE CAN DO THIS....our habits determine our futures 🖤 #crushinglife #5minutesatatime

Aug 17, 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a pic and facts about myself so here we go! 1. I am half Okinawan and half American. I was born on Okinawa, Japan and lived in Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Okinawa before I moved to the US for college when I was 18 years old. 2. Early childhood (EC) is my first love. Both my undergrad and master's degree are in EC Education and I am certified in Special Education. I have taught preschool, Kindergarten, Japanese/English Immersion, 2nd grade, and EC Special Education. I truly believe that "everything you need to know you learned in Kindergarten," therefore whether educating children or adults, it all comes back to lessons we learned in EC. 3. I love fitness as well as anything active and outdoorsy (including drinking on patios). I love supporting people in finding their version of health. 4. I have created several online courses that apply the Okinawan lifestyle to fitness, early childhood, and health. I teach these concepts in small groups as well as privately for 1-on-1 coaching clients. 5. Spirituality is a key factor in Okinawan longevity and a cornerstone in my life. I am fascinated by metaphysics and the body/mind connection. 6. My passion for the above came full circle when I began teaching children who were medically fragile. Non-verbal communication with my 3-6 year old students who were cognitively 0-6 months brought my abstract ideas about spirituality to life. 7. I love all things pregnancy and childbirth and have had wonderful hypnobirths, waterbirths, and homebirths. I am the proud mom of a 6, 4, 2 year old and 8 month old. 8. I love to laugh. Humor puts my first-world-problems in perspective, keeps me balanced, and focused on gratitude. 9. My ultimate goal is to travel with my family, to my family, and all over the world. I feel very fortunate to have experienced many cultures as an expat brat and I believe that nothing offers vast perspectives like seeing humanity through various lenses. This is the most important gift that I'd like to give my children. 10. I’m teaching a FREE early childhood webinar at the end of this month, link in bio!

"Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years." ~ Dr. Susan Poppema, abortionist

Aug 17, 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself. I love seeing all the new faces around here so I like to let ya know that there’s an actual person behind these squares 😜 here’s 10 facts about me: 1. Yep I’m that mom that gets all the way to the doctors office (today) for my 3rd blood pressure check up since babe was born 3 weeks ago just to realize that I forgot the diaper bag at home 🤦🏼‍♀️ #thankgodforbreastfeeding 2. I love tacos 🌮🌮🌮 3. It took my husband and I 4 days while we were in the hospital to decide on a name for baby #2 Mason Rhylan 4. I use to work as a sports reporter for both newspaper & tv station (learned about the sports as I worked. NASCAR was fun especially interviewing the drivers and golf was the hardest to film) 5. Katie Holmes (and Suri) walked less than 2 inches from me last time I was in NYC and it took everything I had not to yell “Hey Joey Potter!!!!” 😂 6. I love cats and would love to have one but afraid my dog might eat it 😑 7. I’m trying to take it easier after this 2nd baby and not stress over losing weight. 8. I know exactly what each episode of the golden girls is within 5 seconds of it playing 9. I’m currently rewatching Friends and mostly at night during feedings. 10. I started my Etsy shop in order to share my love for oily related products so others can love them as much as I do ☺️ Now it’s your turn!! Tell me something about you!! ✨

Aug 17, 2019

Hey there! I am here to make a confession. I don’t always trust Jesus. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sometimes, I think I know better. Sometimes, I think I actually have it all together. Sometimes, I believe if I don’t do #allthethings, then I am a failure. I am here to tell you that it’s okay. You don’t have to be perfect. Keep trying. You will find your own strengths. Don’t give up. Keep pushing through the hard stuff. 👊🏼 Two and half months ago, my oldest daughter had a near death experience with her car and a semi truck. About 40-ish days later, my youngest daughter had a near death experience with her car going up in flames moments after she exited. This started a spiral in mind and eventually my body would react in some weird ways. I have been hesitant to share my story, because my purpose isn’t for sympathy. My hope is that if you are going through something tough, you will know that you are not alone. 🙏🏼 About 3 weeks ago, with little sleep, a lot of caffeine, very little food and high stress from taking my final exam. I was driving home alone that night, when all of a sudden I felt very light headed and like I was going to pass out. I immediately pulled over and my family helped me get home. This incident combined with the memory of my girls accidents, created an unreal fear in me. I began feeling light headed every time I was in the car driving and as a passenger. During this time, I was also driving my son to a near by town 3 days a week for drivers training. I became convinced that I was going to pass out and crash. It began consuming me. Because I had experienced similar symptoms in the past, I was pretty sure there wasn’t anything wrong with me. It wasn’t until I stopped trying to be superwoman, let go and began really trusting that God was in charge, that things started to shift. It also helped that my doctor did a bunch of tests and verified that it appeared to be anxiety. The mind is very powerful. It can and will lead us astray. If you are going through something, turn to Jesus. It’s been one week. My driving issues have mostly resolved as long as I don’t think about it. Thank you, Jesus! 🙏🏼 🙌🏼 #anxiety 📷: taylor.harp

I use this cleaner for my fruits and veggies, but I find that the container it comes in is not very “pourable” and I either pour too much or dump it down the side on accident. So, I decided to pour it in an oil bottle and it works perfectly! # #crunchymama #crunchymom #crunchymoms #crunchymomma #thievescleaner #younglivingeo #younglivingessentialoils #lifehack #kitchenhacks #kitchenhack #fruitsandveggies

Aug 16, 2019

Other than for skin and immune support I like to use Frankincense whenever I’m in doubt about what my body needs. Sometimes I don’t feel well, but I could not tell what is actually wrong with me. Like it’s everything and nothing, physical and emotional discomfort at the same time. Like my body tells me it needs something and I can’t figure out what it is that it needs. Two drops of Frankincense under my tony does the trick for me. Every time. In those situations, I feel like it’s those two drops of Frankincense that were needed to bring by body back into homeostasis. Gotta love that Frankincense. Did you ever experience this? “Known as the king of essential oils, Frankincense has a variety of notable uses and benefits. This powerful essential oil is revered for its ability to beautify and rejuvenate skin when applied topically, and to promote cellular health and immunity and produce a healthy inflammatory response when taken internally,* among other benefits. With all of its many uses, there is no question as to why Frankincense was highly esteemed by ancient civilizations and used for the most sacred of practices. For some religions, Frankincense is correlated with one of the most prized possessions of ancient biblical times, as it was considered valuable enough to be given as a gift to Christ after his birth. Frankincense was also used during religious ceremonies for salves for soothing skin and perfume. The perfume or aroma that Frankincense emits promotes feelings of satisfaction, peace, relaxation, and overall wellness, which explains its unique value in ancient times.” -doterra.com If you are ready to change your live forever and be introduced to essential oils, send me a message and let me help you! #doterra #frankincense #homeostasis

It’s 𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐃𝐀𝐘!! And just like that... summer break has come to an end. I’m looking back at the last of summer with a happy heart! 💗⠀ ⠀ Although it’s been a bit of a struggle being a 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙮-𝙖𝙩-𝙝𝙤𝙢𝙚-𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜-𝙢𝙤𝙢 and having my son home full-time 🤣 I’m grateful for getting to spend so much time with him before he goes off to Kindergarten next week 😭. ⠀ ⠀ We had such an awesome time in Sweden and Parker asks me every day “Mama, can we go to Sweden today?!” 🤣⠀ ⠀ I had a blast in SLC learning so much about the incredible health/emotional benefits of essential oils, being our own health advocates, being a leader and growing 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 our team. 📚 ⠀ ⠀ And we had so many beautiful brides tie the knot this summer, despite the heat 🥵. 😄💕👰🏼💍 ⠀ ⠀ We enjoyed seeing friends in St. Augustine and exploring that 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘶𝘴 city. 🌴 ⠀ ⠀ Time at the pool, with friends, play-dates, and all that fun 𝘀𝘂𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗳𝗳. 😄⠀ ⠀ But I’m actually looking forward to getting back into a routine with dedicated business hours. 😜⠀ ⠀ Can anyone else relate?! 🙋‍♀️🤷‍♀️⠀ Photo cred: katherynjeannephotography

Back to School Tip #4 Ever wonder if your kids are even washing their hands at school? To make sure their hands are clean I love to add Thieves hand purifier to my kids lunches. I also add them to their snack containers. I buy the refill size for our car! We use it all the time on road trips, at gas stations or when we pull out the car potty! 🤣 . When looking for a hand sanitizer that is safe for your skin, make sure the active ingredients are plant based. Look for naturally derived alcohol, instead of triclosan. Triclosan, or triclocarban, is an antibiotic compound that has been used in many products, from cleaning to oral care, for years. The FDA banned the use of triclosan and 18 other chemicals commonly used in antibacterial consumer products. . The use of triclosan is linked to the following effects on human health: ▪️Abnormal endocrine system/thyroid hormone signaling. ▪️Weakening of immune system. ▪️Children exposed to antibacterial products at an early age have an increased chance of developing allergies, asthma and eczema. ▪️Uncontrolled cell growth. ▪️Developmental and reproductive toxicity. . Thieves Hand Sanitizer has clean ingredients and kills 99.99% of germs and bacteria on contact!! There is no gluten-containing GMO ingredients and it nourishes skin with aloe not alcohol. It also smells good! . TIP: Put the Thieves dish soap lid on the Hand Sanitizer refill so it doesn’t come out too fast and add the pump to the dish soap bottle. My kids were wasting so much hand purifier using the pump! . Who uses Thieves Sanitizer?

Aug 16, 2019

I bet you didnt know...... 💭 ⁣ ⁣ • Sweat itself does NOT stink - it’s only a mixture of salt and water. Natural bacteria coming into contact with your sweat creates the dreaded body odor. ⁣ • Antiperspirants deal with sweat directly by including aluminum compounds that stop up sweat glands - this means sweat and good bacterial builds up UNDER your glands. ⁣ •Without good bacteria on the skin to combat the bad bacteria, you can end up smelling worse. • Aluminum is liked to breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and is toxic to the liver. 🤯🤯🤯 ⁣ • Ever have sore armpits?? Swollen lymph nodes = Traffic jam! Balanced lymph nodes are important for many different reasons, not simply for breast cancer. They are part of our body’s immune defense. ⁣ • Furthermore, aluminum compounds can have acidic reactions to fabric and causing those unsightly sweat stains. ⁣ • Parabens, Talc, Phthalates, Silica are other toxins/ carcinogens found in deodorants & antiperspirants.⁣ ⁣ If you have yet to try and have been wanting to switch over your toxic deodorant, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Young Livings 2 new formula are on my next order. ⁣ I really reccomend doing an armpit detox prior to your switch & then once a month after the switch. Bentonite Clay can be purchased off Amazon. ♡♡ Recipe 🥄 ♡♡ •1 tablespoon bentonite clay⁣ •1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar⁣ •1-2 teaspoons of water (to get right consistency)⁣ •1-2 drops of Purification⁣ Mix it all in a bowl- just do not use metal!⁣ ⁣ Make sure to leave it on for 10-15 minutes once or twice a day for about 3-4 days. I rub on Lavender and Purification oils after because as your body goes through the detox & releases all of that crap that was stuck, it kinda smells lol but the oils really do help.⁣ ⁣ This is SO important friends! ⁣ ⁣ #crunchygirl #cleanpits ● MORE IN THE COMMENTS●

I've always despised Weight Watchers. Or WW, as they are trying to rebrand themselves as a "wellness company." Call yourself whatever you want WW, you are focused on one thing - weight. It's clearly supported by the OUTRAGEOUS new app for children (8-17 to be exact) that encourages kids to "track every bite." WW teaches you NOTHING about food and fueling your body correctly. If you hit your points by noon, wtf then? Feel like shit for the rest of the day? Restrict yourself? I distinctly remember thinking something was wrong with me, as young as middle school, because I weighed more than other kids. My father would take us for fast food and when I gained weight, I thought something was wrong with me NOT the food. When I gained weight eating junky snacks because that's what we could afford, I thought something was wrong with me NOT the food. By high school, I was so obsessed with my size I restricted my eating and over exercised. I wore clothes over bathing suits for years. I drank Slim Fast shakes in place of meals. I was so busy with sports, after school activities and my job no one even knew I was barely eating. I'd eat just enough to go unnoticed. It's been a long and hard road to develop a healthy relationship with food, exercise and my body. I'm far from perfect on loving myself everyday. I was in AMAZING shape at my wedding and I still catch myself looking at a photo and thinking my stomach looks puffy. This diet culture shit is poison that sits in our brains and ruins our self love. I didn't learn until almost 30 about how some foods truly serve your body and others don't. That it's ok to have ALL the foods but some make you feel energized, smart and strong and others lethargic, bogged down and cranky. When I think about this new app, I think about 13 year old me. I would have snatched this shit up further obsessing over restricting. How about we put the $$ that went into this app into reversing diet culture and providing healthy food options to low income families? I know I could have used that as a kid. Share this post so we can END the WW app and not ruin our children the way we've already been damaged!

I love when I get to recreate stacks that haven’t been made in a while. 😍 “just be” was a favorite and while I recreate stacks I’m reminded of their message behind them. “Just Be” was a reminder to just be yourself. No one is you and that is what’s so great about YOU. I feel like being your most authentic self attracts exactly what your desire. When you “just be” people get to enjoy you for you & you spread that into the world. 🌟 •••••••••••••

We planned on "starting" school on Monday- but life doesn't always go according to plan, things got busy with community craziness and family needs, and we ended up throwing the majority of our "school" to do list out the window until next week. So thankful for the flexibility to make shifts in our schedule when we need. So for today, this corner is quiet. I'm loving the way it's coming together though and providing a simple school spot in the middle of our living area for the kids to use and play ♡ . . #mom #momlife #motherhooduncensored #motherhood #natural #crunchy #crunchymom #crunchymama #crunchymomma #homeschool #homeschooling #unschooling #natureplay #lifeschooling #summertime #summer #summerbreak #momsofig #schoolathome #homeschoollife #homeschoolroom #schoolday #backtoschool #home
