spOIL Groups

Maybe you have a couple of bottles of essential oils you grabbed at the store. Maybe you have been trying different essential oils from Whole Foods for years and keep a couple of diffusers running.

Maybe you even bought a set of essential oils from another company and they are gathering dust in your bathroom closet.

So when I ask if you want to try some doTERRA oils, you think, nah, I got it covered.

But maybe you don't.

doTERRA is different.

And while I can write blog post and instagram content until the day is long over, the only way for you to know is to TRY the oils.

Every month I do a spOIL group. It has an associated facebook page with videos, information, research, documents, and options. I send you samples for seven oils, a few extras based on what we discuss, and for a month, you can LIVE with those oils. You can comment and share and win prizes. Or you can just try the oils and tell me what you think.

No catch. No obligation. No purchase. Just try some oils and see how they benefit you.

Because they WILL benefit you.

The oils change every month, but I add new people until the 16th and then get ready for the next month. I spend loads of time on the content so you have a month to read and view what interests you (and ignore what doesn't).

Think you know essential oils?

Email me and try a few.

doTERRA is different.

Close Up of Corn Field


I stole the word Yippie from some 1960s activists to describe how I live. A little bit yuppie and a lot bit hippie. My house is green, my food is green, and I still love my Netflix queue and foodie adventures. Living a Yippie life is embracing the balance between intentional living of a wellness advocate, yogi, health coach, and holistic nutrition student, the silly fun of a childless forty-something with too many friends to count, and a married attorney with a bougie suburban house. I love all the things, so instead of trying to become just one, I own them all. Join me for your own yippie life adventure!

Holy Gluten-Free Crackers Batman!!

We had these amazing gluten-free cheese crackers (or biscuits, as we say) over the holidays and my wife has been obsessed with them. So I found a recipe, tweaked it, and cannot believe how EASY and delicious these #glutenfree crackera are!

Preheat oven to 350.

Grate 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, packed . I like an aged white cheddar, but good sharp works too! Do NOT use pre-grated cheese, it will not melt and bind the same.

Mix 1 and 1/4 cup superfine almond flour (I like Bob’s Read Mill with 1/8 tsp of cayene, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp oregano, and 1/8 tsp of baking soda, with the cheddar cheese and 2 Tbs of grated Parmesan.

In a smaller bowl, mix one egg yolk with 1 and 1/2 Tbs olive oil.

Add liquid to the dry and mix until well combined. Turn out dough into a sil-Pat or piece of parchment that fits your baking sheet. Cover with a second piece of parchment, and roll until 1 - 2 mm thin and in a rectangle the size of your baking sheet.

Transfer to the baking sheet on the parchment and score into squares with a knife or pizza cutter.

Cook at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool on a rack, breaking the sheet into squares.

Enjoy as a snack with wine, soup, salads. Will keep up to a week in a glass jar. If they last that long!



Upgrade your Life

Wowza. The number of simple, effective, and plant-based home, skin, health, and beauty concotions you can make yourself in little time and at a small cost is mind blowing. Also? It's really fun to make a new cleaner or cleanser and see it WORK. Here are a few favorites. Chat me up for more details!



This is my absolute FAVORITE morning cleanser and I make it myself. 10 drops frankincense, 10 drops lavender, 10 drops tangerine and half a bottle of fractionated coconut oil. Put three drops on your hand, rub it all over your face, neck and decolletage, and then wipe off with a warm washcloth. Instant morning skin balancing.


Easy. Safe. EFFECTIVE.

In an 8 ounce glass bottle, mix 8 drops of doTerra lemon oil, 1 cup of white vinegar, 2 Tbs. of Castille Soap, and top up with water.

No need for gloves. Because lemon oil cleans ANYTHING.

Also works wonderfully with lemongrass oil.

Scrubbing the Sink


I am prone to headaches. ALL. THE. HEADACHES. But sinus/stress headaches seem to catch me almost daily. And taking acetominophin or ibuprofen wrecks my stomach.


In a dropper bottle mix 10 drops peppermint, 10 drops lemon, and 10 drops lavender. Add three droppers full of fractionated coconut oil and shake.

Massage three drops onto your sinuses, temples, throat and the back of your neck.
