My Essential Oil Habits

Essential Oil Habits..

The world of essential oils made simple by me.

The world has made oils so complicated with too many combination options and impossible to choose. Many have carrier oils added to them. Ours do not.

Truly, there are only two oils needed for your daily life and energy.

Lavender, A soothing, peaceful oil. This will bring calm to the end of your day. A drop or two in your bathroom right onto the tile is a fabulous way to breathe in serenity, while you brush your teeth. Feel your body begin to relax.

My secret tip: I add a drop onto my headboard of my bed. A wonderful inhale as I drift off.

Peppermint, An energizing oil that brings clarity, positivity and a zip to your step. In the morning I add a drop or two onto the shower wall.

I put on the back of my neck for my sore muscles. You won't believe how it works!

And best yet My secret tip:

I put on the vent of my car while driving, filling the car with exciting energy.

Other uses, If you burn yourself in the kitchen apply a drop.

If you have any itchy bug bites put a drop on your bug bite!

If congested apply to your chest and feel the warmth and open your breathing.

If feeling nauseous breathe in and calm the feeling.

Be extra careful applying Please wash your hands, do not rub your eyes.

 Both Lavender and Peppermint are fabulous as bug repellent too!

There are so many positive uses read up and enjoy!!

Our oils are pure, no carrier oil, and so potent.

The oils are 10. each.





When You Do The Opposite.

Why we made the decision to go off the grid with the brand is an easy answer, but an unexpected one.

Most brands crave world domination, mass coverage and notoriety. It is a template followed by most start ups and is #TheWay

We realized in the last two years we did not crave the mainstream.

We worked best alone away from the crowd.

We did not want to stay on the front page of the main street.

We realized and discovered our natural niche.

The "aha" moment was right in front of us and once realized our stress immediately diminished.

It was a peaceful solution which seemed so right, yet

going in what seemed to be the wrong direction like a salmon swimming upstream.

But, so true to my nature, and what I have done with every company I have owned.

Why I had fought my natural rhythm?

I cannot give an explanation.

When we moved our storefront around the corner away from the hustle bustle behind a locked door.

We regained control of our business

and minimized wasted energy.

We now could focus on our existing  clients and their specific needs. Our Buying for Ootra became effortless we could customize and deepen our purchases.

Always better to have fewer potent clients than try to please the world.

In this day and age what is missing in retail true personal service, engagement and creation of real relationships.

The peace, the luxury, the treatment that every purchase is special . That each one of our clients matter and becomes a friend.

Shrink a business to become larger with fewer pressures and have more enjoyment. Retain what you are passionate about within your brand.

Of course I personally love when I deviate from the expected norm. I adore creating buzz. Being an enigma is my way.

Going off the grid was SO what I do ...and seeing the reaction of others made me truly laugh.

Sorry you went out of business

What are you doing now

Such a shame

blah. blah. blah.

The various statements abuzz reinforced our move.

All that really matters to us?

Our clients.

Taking care of our clients beyond comprehension.

Our overhead way down.

Our VIP Club our passionate L❤️VE.

When you wonder what your next move is, STOP LISTEN and

do the unexpected and stay true to you!

Your vision, as an entrepreneur is your fire! Keep the flame burning and do what's right for you.







Love is everywhere for you. It is in your details throughout the day. It is a pride you have for yourself. It is within your face and your smile. Love surrounds you.

Just open your mind, body and soul and you will feel it's warmth.

Love begins with you. And everything you do within a day.

Whether you're alone or surrounded by family love exists.

Love is pure. Love is simple.

Love is a gentle continual pulse of joy and a blanket of warmth.

Right now sit for a moment and think of the joy you are surrounded by the bright glow of happy from within. The blessing of life, your being here, and all the gifts you possess to create whatever your mind can conjure up.

True, there are challenges in our days, in our months and years. We experience loss, challenges and sadness. But, it is within each of these occurrences that love holds us up. Love of ourself is our foundation to everything.

Love and respect of ourself, our confidence, how we navigate through our set backs and times when we feel depleted.

Love is our fuel.

Our love comes through and kicks us in the butt.


Our foundation of strength within our home, our family.

We, as the parent teach our children daily how we react to everything. They take our cues for life. Our home reflects all. Our children reflect us.

Everything we absorb and involve within emanates our actions, our love.

So when you are sad or feel without ..stop and see the selfish ego pushing your heart and love to the side.

Breathe and close your eyes and allow your heart to burn that much warmer and see the magic that surrounds you and the blessings in that moment.

No matter where or what you have there is so much goodness that is right in front of you.

Create your own happy daily. Simple ways mean the most. Begin your day filled with gratitude for what is right in front of you.

Love who you are right now.

Love everything you have accomplished to this moment.

Think of what you HAVE and not of what you don't.

Love is the basis to a fulfilled life.

Your respect, your foundation, your confidence, your sight!


You are never alone when filled with love.

Anything can be accomplished. Believe.❤️




Entrepreneurial Mind

STOP! Thinking

What if?

That's #NotAThing!

Life allows you endless open opportunities to choose.

Whether you choose to create your own business or work with someone else . It is your choice.

As a fourth generation entrepreneur I only see optimism and incredible possibilities out there I want to create something every single day. I want to make an impact ever single day!

Whether I am designing,painting,styling, clicking pics, strategizing social media or taping a webinar


Never thinking.. "what if I fail?"

There truly is no failure! Only opportunities to discover through mistakes. Chances to grow a sprout of an idea in a direction you hadn't thought about before!

An entrepreneur is an intense individual with a fierce belief system. Open to suggestions. But has a path chosen yet allows for shifts and adjustments!

The entrepreneur never stops reading, learning and pushing beyond comfort.

The EDGE is where we LOVE to walk!

To choose the path of your own business is not for the fearful.

Only for the brave and fearless. Tireless because of passion fueled by their mind continually sparking NEW!

Truth: moments of frustration, penniless, and how am I going to make this happen? And complete isolation feeling so alone so often.

The hilarious are the naysayers who prod you with negativity! They just make me giggle. And show me what my mom and dad gifted me: a positive attitude that anything is possible!

We see opportunity in every corner!

Despise mediocrity and laziness and most of all those who complain.

We revel in the Unknown

We are Pioneers.

We are never settled nor ever crave that.

Comfort is our enemy.

Stripes...Florals Seriously?



You've been seeing a lot of each of these designs all spring. But you probably hesitate, because of your body type and or age.


 Realize in fashion you have options. You can be all in. Or choose to do a little bit. Or completely opt out.

 I don't want you to miss out on the fun! Give it a chance. Let go.

All can be done within reason, and appropriately. Promise.

 Your style is in your control. You need to amp it up and freshen up your closet, just a bit. What to do?

 The easiest is #TheFloral. Most of you have a pretty solid color filled rack in your closet. Yes, you do. So, the easiest thing to do is add a dash of floral and a sprinkle of stripe to your closet.

 You've seen in the magazines big bold flowers emblazoned all over the designs. You're saying, "they're  models they can wear anything. When I try it on I look ridiculous."

First of all, you're not doing it right. Secondly, Too bold too fast will never work!

 Think sprinkles of blooms. The floral design can be introduced to your closet slowly by purchasing a simple skirt, cardi,a pant or even a purse. Just one piece.

 Hint: The architectural cut of the design of the article is as important as the material used. The cut has a power all on its own. Pay attention, see past the material design.

 Florals are playful, elegant and colorful. They will become your focal point of your #StyleOfTheDay

When choosing

Allow yourself to go a bit bolder than normal. My suggestions: a full skirt or short pant even a coat. These pieces are easy to build around and you can brighten or dull the floral pattern with your psychologically comfortable solids. The way you style #TheFloral will draw the eye in and be a hint of sophistication and confidence.

 #TheFloral will become one of your fresh favorites this season and you'll look back wondering what your hesitation could have been?


One of my favorites this season.

I fell in love with stripes early on. I love the challenge of pushing you beyond your safe solids.

 #ThePairing is the fun part. You need to let go of your inner voices, and allow the girl within you to burst out.

 Stripes will NOT make you look wider. They will not shorten you.

You need to observe the specific stripe and color.

 Choose your favorite skirt and pull the stripe shirt out of your closet and put IT on. Look at the dynamic you've just paired.

Just like the magazine pages! Where's the camera?📷

 The Art of #TheStripe is a magnificent thing. When done right.

Look for stripes that aren't equal lines, Look at the material the stripe is on. You want to choose your stripe wisely. The suppleness and uneven striping is your answer.

 A horizontal stripe well done will not add to your width. In fact an opposite effect occurs.

 If you fear #TheStripe, because of it making you look bigger. Stop and choose a striped shirt. This way you can slowly warm up to the idea.

 A simple striped tee can be worn under a sweater and just let the hemline pop out adding a hint of stripe to your look. Classic.

Or wear a blazer or jacket over your stripe. This style will dress it up and heighten the sophistication of the stripe.

At first, you may cover the stripe up, or wear it quietly until you get used to you in a stripe.  By midsummer you'll be rockin this stripe out alone, confident your body is looking fabulous  in that stripe.

 Pairing #TheFloral and #TheStripe my happiest couple!

What did you say? Really?

 Yes, pull a fabulous floral skirt and a striped top out of your closet, place them on the floor together overlapping and see the Art.

 Now, walk into your closet and have fun! It's summer, it's warm and your garden is blooming. So let your shoulders drop, erase your stress and breathe. Grab what makes you smile NOT what's easiest. Take the time to style yourself and show that you care.

You will feel better, stand taller and walk with confidence.
