Ylang Ylang comes from a unique star-shaped flower with a sweet, rich scent. It’s often used as a perfume scent and is excellent for both hormone balancing as well as libido, but it also has powerful calming properties. Check out these usage tips...

those ladies who 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸 no matter what;

I am a girl who always struggled with friend groups.
This was magnified when I started having babies. I had my oldest when I was 19 & as you can imagine, NONE of my friends were having babies. I was basically on my own, in this new stage of life, while my friends were all off at college, living the life I thought I would have been living.

The topic of nature versus nurture is well-debated. During my psychology classes in college, I came to my own conclusion, as most of you probably agree, that it is a combination of BOTH; that we are the culmination of BOTH the traits and personalities that we were born with, as well as the influences of the environments and authority figures that we have come into contact with throughout our lives.
I had the opportunity to speak to our church at the end of 2020 on this topic...
I am a mommy of SEVEN (yes 7) beautiful kids! They are amazing, wonderful, hilarious & the greatest babies I could ask for! I am married to my best friend & high school sweetheart, Michael.
I love to craft. I love to decorate. I am passionate about natural living & natural birthing. Sometimes I write stuff. I plan parties like my life depended on it. My favorite color is pink. My house is definitely NOT taupe. I typically cannot keep plants alive. I am only allowed to have dogs as pets because all others tend to have the same end result as the plants. Luckily my track record with kids is pretty good! Also, I drink a lot of coffee. And I really like tacos.
