Follow me @expressivejourneys as I am transitioning to one account to connect all the HOLISTIC AVENUES in my life on one beautifully curated page. . . . Hey everyone! With all my upcoming transitions I have noticed my mind allowing fear and apprehension to enter more than necessary. October 1st I am starting a 45 day positive vibe challenge (I've already started practicing!) What's that you ask? It's a mindfulness challenge to help retrain our automatic thought process. How is that even possible? For one minute, three times per day for forty five days consciously taking time to think about all the positives in our lives will help to retrain our brains to look for the positives and rebuild that automatic circuit. I will also be sharing some of my tips and education on how to safely and effectively use essential oils in this process. Who's in? #positivevibechallenge
If you've ever had a cast you know the itching and skin healing that follows. It's uncomfortable and can become painful if excessively itched. The orthopedic doctor recommended a list of remedies that contain fillers and chemicals this holistic mama is not into. Instead, we created this spray blend to help soothe my kiddos' skin post full leg cast as it sheds the build up from being in the cast and helps support the new sensitive skin growth. My kiddo has also been loving a warm gentle bath soak in frankincense, melaleuca, Himalayan salt, and coconut oil. Not only is it all healing to his skin, it also helps support all the emotions he is experiencing. And an added bonus, he smells delightful too!
I am so grateful once again for these amazing @doterra oils. My 4yo broke his tibia nearly 7 weeks ago which landed him in a full leg cast. Yesterday he transitioned to a boot and his knee and muscles are quite sore from being stabilized for so long. I mixed him up an age appropriate muscle soothing spray with AromaTouch and fractionated coconut oil and he instantly felt relief from his stiff muscles as evidenced by him saying, "oh this feels so good, let's put it on more times today."
Here's a little look at what's in my cleaning cabinet. What you see is what you get. The purest essential oils on the planet and no toxic chemicals lurking behind the label. What's in your cabinet and how is it impacting your health?

This is the BOGO of all BOGOs!!!! My two absolute favorite oil blends that we use daily in our house for both diffusing and topical application. . . I apply balance on my wrist pulse points and on the back of my neck or the bottoms of my feet every morning while also taking a mindful breath in breathing in the grounding properties and exhaling my intentions for the day. . . Serenity is in my bedtime routine including all our bedroom diffusers mixed with Breathe and Wild Orange. I rub a combination of serenity and coconut oil on the bottom of our kids' feet to help calm their bodies after an active day. Serenity is also in my nighttime roller blend that helps me to unwind from the day and recharge while I sleep. I used to struggle to fall asleep and was so jealous of my sleeping husband! No mama has time for that! We need our sleep to keep up with our littles and life. . . I only have 2 spots left if you are a nonmember and want to snag this at wholesale pricing. I can also help you get your own membership today or follow the link in my profile to order up to 5 retail for you!
With all the new transitions happening in my life, Console has become my go to roller. It's like one giant hug when I am feeling overwhelmed. I've got just a couple spots left if you want to snag this epic duo at wholesale price, DM for details.
First pick of the season and so delicious. I literally ran out the door when I saw these ripe beauties in our front yard.
This BOGO is off the hook! Like many people peppermint was one of my first essential oils to use and let me tell you my life changed the day I discovered the purity of doTERRA's. Total game changer. I love the cooling and invigorating properties of peppermint! I love the calming and relaxing properties of PastTense to help support letting go. Let me know if you would like one of my 3 wholesale spots left. Non-members only.
My go to for clean fresh fruit even when on vacation. 1 drop in a glass bowl with water, soak for a couple minutes, and rinse. Swipe to see the bowl of drained water. Ewww. 🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓 Let me know if you want to get a bottle of your own! Only $10 wholesale for 250 drops of pure therapeutic grade essential oil.
This little bottle saved us on our road trip! After hours on the road, we had tired, hungry, and over excited kiddos and quickly booked a hotel room. Walked in our room and we were over powered by the intense chemical and perfume smell of their cleaning routine. My head hurt and throat burned instantly. We filled our diffuser with purify, opened the window and set out to grab some grub. We happily returned to a refreshed room.
Happy 4th of July! Wishing you all a safe and relaxing day with your friends and family. We are loving our homemade chemical free sunscreen. Send me a message if you want to learn how to make your own!
Healthy spine, healthy mind and immune system. We are a chiropractic loving family for countless reasons.
Just doing what he loves. Playing in the garden and turning the compost. #garden_explorers #gardeningkids
One of my favorite sites of summer from our front steps. Gorgeous summer evening to watch the sailboats. #mtrainier #seattlelife #seattlesummer
A healing hand salve I mixed up for @helenskeclayworks to aide in healing his dried out hands from all his work with clay. Check out his beautiful wares (and soon to be silky smooth man hands). Do you want to learn more about natural solutions or perhaps get your own membership with @doterra? I can help! Follow the link in my profile to start our conversation.
Mixing up some chemical free sunscreen for my family.
Mixed my hubby up this epic blend for Father's Day and my oh my, I just want him to be slathered in it all day. It smells so good! I might just have to bottle this combo up for all the men in this world. Not only is it an amazing plant based chemical free cologne, it also has many therapeutic and health benefits.
Farmers Market goodness. Cleaning up for a delicious afternoon snack. Soaked in 1 drop of Lemon EO and rinsed.
Hey. It's Friday and I thought I would share a bit about myself in honor of #fridayintroductions. I am a Holistic Mom, Wellness Advocate, Art Therapist and Expressive Artist (@expressivejourneys) supporting healthier lives by integrating a natural lifestyle reducing our daily chemical exposures with real food & essential oils. I am passionate about empowering my family and others to live healthy and thriving lives. I believe embarking on a Holistic Journey is implementing core elements for obtaining optimal wellness, and you hold the power to live the life you desire! Why a Holistic Journey? Choosing to live a holistic lifestyle is to treat and care for your body from the inside out. As a licensed mental health counselor and registered art therapist I know how strong the gut/brain connection is and how our daily rituals & diet impact our emotional health and well-being. We hold the power by the foods we choose to fuel our bodies, the activity and ways we move our bodies, the quality of sleep we obtain, how we manage stress levels, and emotional health, and the care we take to rid our homes of excess toxins and the time we gift ourselves for restorative self-care. I am here to help you and join your family on their journey. Be Well, Kayla 💗🌱
