Products & Resources I LOVVVVVVE!

It's taken a few years of research and trying new things, but I'm super excited to share with you the products I've chosen to get behind. Full Disclosure: I do, in some instances, make commission from certain products/resources listed here. I want to assure you that I did not sign on to represent any product or resource without fully testing it out myself first, nor do I promote anything I don't personally use in my own life.

Arbonne Nutrition & Beauty

If you want to clean up your health and beauty supplies, but you're not ready to go full-hippie (aka making your own products), Arbonne is where it's at!! Their products are organic, vegan and free of corn / soy / gluten - some of the most common sensitivities/allergens. They also are a company that upholds European standards when it comes to additives. I particularly love their protein powder, which is a pea-protein and tastes *~!amazing!~* 
Arbonne products have also come to my rescue when simply using Almond Oil or Coconut Oil to moisturize/cleanse was not enough. One of my best friends of over a decade, Sarah Razmann, introduced me to these products and they've been such an amazing way to up-level my health and beauty routine. I can't get enough of 'em! 
(Note: please contact me if you're interested in placing an Arbonne order so I can set you up with the preferred client discount of 20% off and a free gift up to $50 in value!!)

Young Living Essential Oils

In my journey to go full-hippie, I've ditched a lot of my conventional cleaning and beauty supplies along the way. I use essential oils in a million different ways - from going into my homemade mouthwash, to flavoring my water, use on burns/cuts/scrapes, and to deter unwanted mosquito bites! 
I love the Young Living brand because they're used in over 50 hospitals in the USA, and YL owns all their own farms around the world. They are certified Therapeutic Grade essential oils - which means they're safe for topical use and consumption. 
I recommend getting the starter pack, which will get you 10 of the most popular oils, along with a diffuser and some additional surprises. The pack is retail-valued at $300 but when you sign up you get it for $160 and get wholesale prices forever and for always.
(Note: if you just want a few oils, please email me your order and I can get your oils for you at wholesale, and have it shipped to you!)
