I'm my previous life, i probably would have tossed this pack of sunscreen in my cart (as a die-hard alias fan, i love me some jen garner). unfortunately, chemical sunscreens are bad news and neutrogena is no exception. oxybenzone is a key ingredient and it is a hormone disruptor/allergen. grab my free guide (link in my bio) to find out which safe sunscreen is my favorite.
Everyone uses liquid dish soap, so why not make your own? this very simple recipe is great for removing grease and adding shine. the citrus scent can really perk up your senses!
Morning wellness chicks! nicki here🙋🏻! the last week or so i have felt so tired 😴. i thought it was due to some travel and off sleep, but the more i thought about it i knew it was something else. sugar!!! ever since easter weekend i have started craving sugar after each meal and i was reaching for the candy stash in the pantry. sugar has a big affect on me, it literally can change my mood and cause me to be so tired. so it's back to the basics! protein, vegetables, healthy fats and carbs. this morning i'm starting the day off with @knowfoods bread, @vitalfarms egg, organic strawberries and @ancientnutr bone broth protein. balance is important but sometimes you have to cut out a specific item (at least for a little bit), so you can ultimately feel better. so bye 👋🏻 refined sugars and hello to better choices for the next month!
What do pea plants have to do with detergent?
the name elizabeth's inheritance is my tiny tribute to gregor mendel— the father of modern genetics. the quiet, gentle, curious monk/botanist/scientist who, through studying and tending to thousands of these flowering, self-pollinating beauties, uncovered the truth of how we pass on traits to our offspring (not by blending, but by contributing the individual codes we carry — our dominant and recessive genes.) .
while scientists of his day looked for evidence of genetic principles by examining and experimenting on people, mendel intuitively understood that the same beautiful truths that shape the natural world (diversity, variation, adaptation, independence) also shape us. by looking towards nature, he uncovered the truth of our human nature. .
mendel's discoveries are referred to as mendelian inheritance. the laws of which form the foundation of modern genetics and helped establish evolution as the central force of biology. the laws of which link all of us together — the earth, the plants, and each other.

Lavender no iron spray put to the test today! this shirt was in desperate need of ironing, sprayed with a lavender spray, simply 10 drops of lavender in about 80mls of water. sprayed and the wrinkles have dropped considerably. obviously not perfect, but after being scrunched up in a drawer unworn for a couple of years probably i think the spray has done well! definitely will be using this again. dm me if you'd like to get some lavender oil!
S p r i n g c l e a n i n g>> i spent some time this morning using some essential oils to clean my make-up brushes (which was probably wayyyy overdue). i took a glass and added about 10 drops of lemon essential oil and two tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil. i'm always amazed to watch how quickly the build up in the brushes is released into the liquid. i finished by taking a tiny bit of doterra's shampoo into my palm and washing each brush out. just another sweet and simple way i can use these plant extracts to more easily and safely clean. and now they smell heavenly✨
When i first became interested in essential oils, it was because i wanted to help my family with dry winter skin. i saw the retail price of the 3 oils i was after & thought "nope, no way. not paying that". then a few months later, someone i knew on instagram posted about the premium starter kit & the 24% discount you get on future orders. this caught my interested, so i did a little more research & realized there were sooo many uses for these little bottles of “plant juice”; and even though i was only interested in 7 of the 11 oils that came in the kit, it was definitely the best deal! ***************************************** if you’re where i was 2 years ago, skeptical but curious, i get it. you could go buy a few oils from the grocery store (been there, did that…spoiler alert, they didn’t work!) or you could grab an oil or two from yl, but i’m going to tell you why i believe the kit is the only way to go.
the problem with having only an oil or two is that you don’t really change your habits. when your body needs extra support to function at 100%, you may or may not have the necessary oils; and chances are, you’ll probably revert to old habits. but if you have the kit, you have a vested interest in figuring them out. you’ve spent good money on these oils, so you find ways to use them! supporting your immune, respiratory, digestive, muscular, integumentary, excretory, nervous, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems- there is an oil for all of these systems in the kit; and once you figure them out, you’ll never go back. ***************************************** so, if you think today is the day, & you’d like to give this oil thing a try, let’s do it!!! the next 3 people to sign up & grab a premium starter kit are going to get this set of the pretty rollers from @ambergoldbottles + some awesome print resources to fill them & learn. and if you grab a premium starter kit + valor & orange (or any oils really) on essential rewards, i’m going to cover your shipping and you get a free bottle of tangerine vitality oil from yl!!! if you were looking for a sign to get started, this is it!!!
