The fall season is all about change. As the leaves change color and fall from their branches, it is a good idea to ‘fall out’ of your old skincare rituals and make subtle changes to help you look and feel your best as the days grow shorter.
There are plenty of seasonal foods that you can incorporate into your daily skincare routine, and although they are all quite delicious, I’m talking about feeding your skin, not your stomach! Pumpkin is my favorite – it’s high in vitamins A, C and E as well as zinc and antioxidants. It’s also delectably moisturizing and a gentle exfoliator!
Set aside some of your fresh pumpkin this season for this great DYI Pumpkin Scrub Ritual! Read more »
Tea is one of the oldest natural remedies known to man, and I’m convinced that sitting down with a good cup of tea is good for the soul too.
Chai is a centuries-old beverage which has played an important role in many cultures. According to Ayurvedic (Ancient Indian) philosophy and medicine, these spices are considered to be “sattvic” or calming, vitalizing and mentally clarifying – the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life!
But chai tea is also an amazing ancient remedy for relieving colds, flues, sinusitis, sore throats, or low energy… Bonus: it’s tasty too!

The other weekend I went to my dear friend Dina’s Baby Blessing, which is a tradition of holding the woman sacred and blessing the baby to be.
I wanted to bring something special to pamper the mama, so I made her a jar of my Milk Bath recipe.
Milk bath rituals have been used for thousands of years to soften and nourish the skin. The lactose in milk helps to gently exfoliate without over-drying. This recipe is great for all skin types including sensitive skin. It makes a great gift…. or you can just treat yourself… light some candles and allow yourself to be pampered in this luxurious bath!
Also great made into a paste and used as a facial scrub, or mixed with a little water and applied as a facial mask for 10-15 minutes.

Here’s my little daughter Violet and I doing a saging. In our community and tribe we do a sage smudging at the beginning of many ceremonies and rituals, and to clear the energy of a home or physical space.
The Native American ritual of saging or smudging – burning sage and moving the bundle over the front and back of our bodies – helps to cleanse our auras and energy, and bring us into a moment of consciousness and sacredness.
Sage also helps the flow of energy (a la Fung Shui) in your house. Every house can have stagnant areas where the energy is not necessarily negative, but it’s stuck. The sage helps move it along.

Did you know that only 30% of all couples are considered “semi-happy”? I see so many people resigned to a relationship without passion. Here’s the good news: Having a deep, passionate, soulful connection is something we can learn to create!
We all know that being in love can be magical, but the “honeymoon” phase doesn’t last forever. My husband Nat and I have had a very beautiful and soulful marriage for 3 years now and are very happy. Just like any couple, we’ve have our fair share of ups and downs, but we both see marriage as one of the most beautiful and powerful tools for self-growth. Read more »

Have you ever dreamt of being adrift in the ocean alone? Each time you think it’s safe to come up for air another wave crashes down on you and you feel like there’s no escape, like you’re drowning?
Figuratively, this was my life for the last few months. I’m only just now feeling like I can really talk about it, it was so intense.
I’d like to get vulnerable with you here so I can share how I actually ASKED for this maelstrom, how I weathered the storm, and how it’s made me stronger and clearer in my truth.
