What Makes Me GLow?


It’s never too late to start working on yourself, whether it be your physical health or your spiritual health.  A good place to start is to be around positive people who make you laugh.  A cheerful heart does good like a medicine 🙂

I get text and emails daily asking me what products I use.  If you know me, you know I don’t put chemicals on my body, in my body, or in my home.  We have so many toxins coming at us daily that we can’t control in this modern world that it’s wise to reduce the toxic load in our beauty and home products.

Once you become extra clean on the inside and you get exposed to toxic chemicals you will immediately notice a difference.  My nose will run in new houses that are off gassing formaldehyde, I get nausea when I smell cheap perfume, and I know if a fruit or vegetable isn’t organic because my lips burn.  I’m ok with having a clean sensitive body because from day to day I feel really good.

What makes me glow?

Upon rising on an empty stomach I oil pull using COCONUT OIL. Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that cleans and detoxifies the teeth, gums, and removes harmful bacteria in the mouth.  My mouth feels so clean when I oil pull.  I put 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in my mouth for 20 minutes and swish around then spit it in the garbage or outside, not down the drain. I rinse with warm water.

After oil pulling I brush my teeth with REDMOND EARTHPASTE. I don’t always have time to make my own toothpaste so I have found this works great.  It contains hydrated Redmond clay, essential oils, and real salt.  Here is the eco-friendly BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH that I love.

Next I take my GREEN PASTURES FERMENTED COD LIVER OIL.  The link I gave you is for the Butter oil/fermented cod liver oil blend in cinnamon flavor.  I’ve tried them all and this is the easiest and tastiest to take. Cod liver oil is one of the most important supplements you can take.  It’s loaded with EPA, DHA, omega 3’s, Vitamin A and Vitamin D.  You will notice a difference in your health when you take this daily. It’s perfect for preconception, healing an injury, and on a personal note it helps thicken my hair!

This one is important!! You will want to put a SHOWER FILTER on your shower to remove chlorine and harsh chemicals. Chlorine in the shower water is known to disrupt the balance in the intestinal flora, dry out your skin and hair, and it soaks right into the largest organ of the body(your skin).

In the shower I use this raw vegan shampoo MORROCCO METHOD. Morrocco Method offers raw vegan, gluten-free and color safe shampoos. Shampoos that feed your hair live nutrition without sulfates, parabens, or chemicals.  I like the earthy smell it gives my hair rather than a chemical smell.

I personally don’t use deodorant.  I think if you get a hint of a smell it’s cool, it just means you’re alive ;).  I have tried all natural PRIMAL PIT PASTE when given a sample at Paleofx and it worked great.

On to breakfast..The quickest and easiest breakfast to make is a raw smoothie in your VITAMIX BLENDER, jar it up in a glass jar and bring it with you in a cooler for lunch too.  I’m going to let you cheat with organic frozen blueberries because they’re not always in season and this makes life easy.

Easy Breakfast Smoothie-


1-2 cups frozen blueberries

2 cups raw milk

1 raw egg

1-2 tablespoons raw honey

Handful of romaine lettuce, or any greens on hand (optional)

banana (optional)

dates (optional)


Blend in Vitamix.

My 2 favorite superfood powders to add to your smoothie are…



Here’s a tip if you ever suffer from constipation, restless sleep, or sore muscles.  I take MAGNESIUM POWDER and it works really well!

I highly recommend drinking spring water, a lot of raw green juice, eating fermented veggies, and eating plenty of raw animal fats such as raw eggs, raw milk, and raw butter! :))
