A community getting crafty with essential oils and leveraging the healing power of plants. 

We are a community seeking healthy and non-toxic alternatives for ourselves and our families. 

We share a philosophy around natural living - limiting our exposure to harmful chemicals, leveraging the healing power of plants, and getting our hands dirty. 

We love to experiment with different blends of essential oils and to share recipes using therapeutic-grade essential oils and organic carrier oils. These recipes and blends empower us and offer us another tool when taking care of ourselves and our families.

a slice into my life

I have always been a firm believer in a natural lifestyle. As a result, I’ve always sought out organic foods, the purest ingredients, and created a toxin-free home. Now more than ever, using essential oils, I feel empowered to help myself and my family with our health and well-being. A curious thing about me is I have a seriously reduced sense of smell. Even though I can’t enjoy much of the aromatic bliss of the oils, I’m amazed and inspired by their restorative properties. I absolutely love mixing up effective blends, made with love, and experiencing their results.


First Oil Success 

Thieves, Thieves, Thieves. In May of 2014, as a mother of a 3 year old and pregnant with another baby on the way, a dear friend brought over some oils and her diffuser to help with supporting my son’s run down immune system.

Ooooh, that’s a hard one! I’d have to say other than Thieves or Valor (truly challenging to pick just one), Frankincense is my favorite! This oil embodies ancient wisdom and inspires a deep connection for me.

I am a full-time mother of two children (ages 5 and 3), founder of Little Green Moments, a non-toxic lifestyle blog, and co-author of OIL + GLASS, an essential oils recipe book.

Like many expecting moms, when I was pregnant with my first child I became hyperaware of what I was putting into my body and what long-term effects my choices would have on this baby. I started researching the health effects of exposure to plastics (BPA and phthalates), pesticides, hormones (rBGH), antibiotics, mercury in fish and other neurotoxins, on pregnant, nursing women, and children. The knowledge I gleaned prompted gradual behavioral change; I began to overhaul my lifestyle.



My favorite home “test” is using oregano oil twice a day on a skin tag for two weeks…until it simply fell off.

I could diffuse Thieves oil all day long. Not only do I love the smell of this blend of cloves, cinnamon, eucalyptus, citrus and rosemary, but I like that it helps to eliminate airborne bacteria.
