The Palo Santo combined with the Breu resin brings me a sense of peace and clarity. As soon as I smell the incense burn, I am aligned. It enables me to be in flow and in focus. As my daily morning ritual in my office or as my afternoon break at home, I love knowing this incense helps my mind and body center and stay calm.
The scent is unbelievable alone, but the fact that it is a deodorant alternative is the ultimate “cherry on top.” I appreciate it is not infused in alcohol like most other essential oil roll on deodorants. I have to elaborate that deodorants have caused me a lifetime of issues because my underarm skin is so sensitive. If I wore the same deodorant for more than a couple of weeks or even sometimes a few days, I would break out into a rash! I’ve tried everything from commercial brands to only natural deodorants or essential oils for the past 5 years. I came to accept that my skin is just so sensitive, until I stumbled upon a beautiful and intentional product that feels gentle and smells like a bouquet of flowers.
Unplug Meditation is my favorite meditation studio in Los Angeles. Meditating in various ways with mantra, breath work, and tapping enables and inspires me to let go, come back to the present moment, and be authentic.
I can’t imagine anyone jumping on a rebounder or trampoline with a serious face— it’s not possible! I love my rebounder and use it throughout the day for several minutes at a time to get my circulation flowing, help decalcify my pineal gland, and to drain my lymphatic system. Endless amounts of benefits from rebounding.
I am continually inspired from finding crystals that resonate with me and learning the healing properties of each crystal, where they originate from, and in particular, how they can help heal or elevate certain areas of my life. Each day I am drawn to a different type of crystal and I love feeling the connection between crystals and my chakras. I have been working with Azalea Lee, founder of Place 8 healing, on energy healing that has opened up many doors for me. I recommend her to anyone looking to dig deeper and find out how to push through limiting beliefs and get out of our own way!

There is something about wearing a flowy dress or kaftan made from a natural textile blend— it just feels right! As the breeze flows and the fabric lightly rests on my skin, I feel free. There are also proven health benefits of wearing loose fitting clothing made of natural textiles.
I’ve noticed lately most of my music inspiration comes through Zackymuse on SoundCloud. He curates uplifting, tropical house music. One song in particular that I can’t get enough of right now is Wolke 4 //Marcapasos Remix.
