Let's DO THIS Halloween party thang
For kids Halloween generally revolves around candy, for adults, friends and a good time. Halloween parties are a great way to get people together and celebrate more than walking kids around the block for an hour. But there are just a few must-haves that cannot be forgotten. Decorating for one night can be a hassle …

JJ has an incredible knowledge of essential oils for general health and wellness. I love that I can approach her with vague ideas of what I'd like help with ('keep me calm after a stressful day', 'help me concentrate at work', 'help battle sinus blahs') and VOILA! She produced a plethora of custom oil blends with detailed instructions for each. It's a million times better than wandering into a health aisle in the grocery store and hope that I pick the right blend or brand. JJ is a compassionate pro that can read between the lines and give you the natural tools you need to stay at the top of your game. Thanks JJ!!!
