Our sweet Loretta Grace has finally made her presence and we could not be more overjoyed! Thank you to all that have come along this journey with us and prayed for us. As my maternity leave has officially started, any intake forms, emails, or texts may be delayed in response by 1-2 business days while we adjust as a family of three.
Thank you for your understanding and support!

To all my past clients and women who have given birth, y'all are rockstars!!! I hope to share my birth story soon, but in the meantime I am blown away by the love and support I have received in texts, calls, meals & visitations.
God made a woman's body so perfect for birth and I am humbled and blessed to be able to experience such a miracle in itself. Something I will never forget is the strength and courage in trusting and surrendering to Him.
God's design is flawless.
Aromatherapy: Does Brand Really Matter?
The question everyone is asking. Some individuals will preach to you yes while others still have their suspicions. Trust me, I was one of the yes crowd pleasers until my path of becoming a certified aromatherapist opened a whole new meaning of the essential oil industry. We have to remember that this too is an industry of profit and value. As essential oils are regaining popularity in the world, consumers are troubled with what brand to choose best for their family.
I will be completely transparent with you: I started out with an MLM that is known as the leading essential oil brand in the world. I was introduced to it through a high school colleague wanting to pursue the business side of things. I too was like "why not" & hopped on board and took off. It wasn't until I was questioning the fact of why essential oils work this way in our body. I could not get an answer from anyone because in retrospect the company is not teaching them the therapeutic properties of oils, only how to market the product. That was when I took it upon my self and started doing research.
The internet is a powerful tool, which I am sure you already know, but like anything else you need to cross reference your findings and take everything into consideration. I encourage you to look into the brand you are using and not just take my word. Instead, let this be a starting point for you and see what you find.
That being said, lets dive right in.
The Short Answer is Yes...
Plain and simple does brand really matter? Yes it does. There are companies out there like I stated above that just want to take your money because essential oils are regaining popularity in the world. Health and wellness is not their number one priority for you. Once you can weed out those brands, which I will teach you how later in this post, then you need to look further into the company and see what kind of precautionary measures they are taking, where they are sourcing the botanicals and herbs, and how these oils are being processed, packaged and shipped.
In the United States there are zero laws and regulations on the use of the term aromatherapy. That simply means anyone can slap a label on a bottle with some type of substance and say it's good to go. Now is that necessarily a bad thing? No. It simply means we as consumers must do our due diligence to educate ourselves on the products we buy and use (just like anything else in the world).
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A BRAND:
Again, there is zero laws and regulations for the term aromatherapy.
Now a question for you.
