This keeps me accountable. As many of you saw on my gram, April had been a successful month for personal growth and development. Working out daily had pushed and propelled me for the next step of this beauty and wellness evolution.

This month of May, I have vowed to keep up with the maintenance and implementing a new and improved internal intake for my beauty from within, skin is in, soul is prime routine.

I am actively reaching for these sustainably sourced oils to balance and better my goals as I am officially swapping my usual go to and comforting sugary caffeinated drinks for something else like this. Wish me clean!

I hope you are inspired to get up and do something, anything to keep up with the health & wealth, which is you, Almond J

It’s no secret I am quite fond and currently propagating this wonderful plant ūüćĀ¬†and has been a staple in my medicine and beauty apothecary garden.

I am starting the initial phase of my product and development for Almonds Apothecary! It has truly quite been a few years in the making and I am still in shock that I’ll be rolling this out this presently!

I am curating a beauty and wellness line first launching in my airbnbs on the big island of Hawaii, catering to my local and international guests.

Sustainability has been a top priority when building this project and sourcing out post consumer materials and ethically sourced ingredients has been indeed a joyful journey. Will share more in the next posts!

Here I have invested in Doterra essentials oils, a must have and convenient reach for my most desired and used blends especially when I am traveling and on the go. I have teamed up with a gang of goddesses and have been creating these unique blends via inspiration and intuition. The first few products will be an indulgence for the senses, decadent and drama free intoxicating body washes, end of the day scrubs and take the time to just be and lather up lotions and mists.

Relaxing Mindful Rituals up ahead, AJ

On this particular day, I moved my things out of my home into a my storage. I said goodbye to my old life and simply surrendering to this new one. I navigated the day with uneasiness but determined determination. I silently mused and thanked what got me here and what fueled my exit.

Upon watching the clips above, you would have no idea what kind of things and people I am mourning….and thats the beauty of it all. Choose what you want to put out, perceive what you think and move onto to the next.

Simply, this is me retiring, reminding myself no matter how hard the day gets, I can always gift myself time with my mind, body and soul. Once I had the chance to break free from obligations I went to the nearest paradise opening and collapsed on the sand by the sunset on the shore, stretched out and got covered in prehistoric bones and tings while I deeply inhaled and exhaled a personal apothecary made concoction featuring doTERRA lavender essential oil that I made just for me, to help with moments like this.

full moon gigs and gatherings

Tourmaline, Rose Quartz and Selenite + a custom doTERRA essential oil blend of

Cassia, Patchouli, Wild Orange, and Rosemary and some additions, Quartz helps liberate us from worry and discrimination, and promotes valuable self love.Ruby with Fuschite allows us to access Universal information, cleanses the aura, speeds up the healing process of bouncing back, sparks joy and sweetness, and releases stress and worry. Added Red Clover buds, flowers and Himalayan Salt for warmth and grounding.



I’ve been fascinated by the moon and the tides for as long as I can remember. It was in the recent decades that I’ve been exposed to a new type of energy channeling and cleansing.

Almost the full moon, I’ve gathered my dreams and intentions and set out to recharge and rejuvenate the soul and the senses. I take pride in taking the time to listen and learn from my own experiences and intuition.

Purposely took my healing energy tools on a special pilgrimage to the northshore and spent the day just for me. My solitude, my sanity, my rituals. Finding that grounding space where one can just be, is possibly the magic.

Celebrating you, AJ

A day just for me.

Navigating through the predicaments and learning the patience to be your best and honor thyself.

It’s been a tough few weeks. Personally & Professionally, I sought the advice of one my mentors and she created a loving and supporting healing oil blend to take with me during this transition.

On what seemed like the first brighter day of this challenging season, I went outside and just had a day for me. I drove myself to my favorite healing spots on the island, took in my breaths, took in the sights and sounds and just be. Thank you my friend for infusing my life with inspiration and aromatherapy.

I spent the hours getting muddy from the hikes, I was drenched from the winter rain, I was left inspired and dried out by the sun when it finally came out. I stood on the top of the mountain and found my way by the shore down the sea. I took it all in today, which made me reflect, I need to have more of. Join my Tribe!

Another day in paradise, AJ

The official HOLIDAY sale has begun yesterday with Doterra launching their much long awaited buy one get one free sale!

I was swamped with endless meetings yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to jump in on the ON GUARD + BREATHE combo but I’ll be damned if I missed today!

TUMERIC + LAVENDER is today’s combo and can we just simply go over the beneficial facts that the two gives?


Primary Benefits

  • Has been shown to increase curcumin potency and absorption*
  • May promote healthy immune function and response*
  • When diffused, Turmeric provides an emotional lift and may help improve mood
  • Supports clean and healthy-looking skin while reducing the appearance of blemishes


As a key botanical of the traditional Ayurvedic health practices of India, turmeric root and turmeric essential oil have a long history that has inspired modern uses of turmeric today. Steam distilled from the turmeric root, Turmeric essential oil has two unique chemical components, Turmerone and ar-Turmerone. Most commonly known for their nervous system* and emotional benefits, these components make Turmeric essential oil a staple in your daily health routine. Promoting feelings of positivity,* Turmeric is beneficial both internally and aromatically. Advantageous to the immune system, Turmeric may have soothing benefits that promote a positive immune response.* As well, Turmeric can help to promote clear, smooth, and radiant-looking skin. Use Turmeric daily to support healthy immune function and response along with healthy circulation.* In addition to the many benefits of Turmeric essential oil, Turmeric acts as a great burst of flavor to your favorite savory meals.


  • Take internally for daily antioxidant support and to improve immune response.*

  • After strenuous activity, incorporate Turmeric into your recovery routine for a soothing experience.


Primary Benefits

  • Soothes occasional skin irritations
  • Taken internally, Lavender reduces anxious feelings and promotes peaceful sleep*
  • Helps ease feelings of tension.*


Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.


  • Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet at bedtime.
  • Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.
  • Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender with water in a spray bottle.
  • Take internally to reduce anxious feelings.*
  • Use in cooking to soften citrus flavors and add a flavorful twist to marinades, baked goods, and desserts.



I’ve got big plans a-brewing with these two oils, ready to join my first starter set and I am prepared to create some healing and useful magic with these essential oils.¬†

I have been fostering my relationship with Jenny @indiglowwellness for a few years now, with countless of shoulda met ups and creative learning, and one day finally after a full few moons, we have linked up and its been a whole new world since then!

I met Jenny when we attended a henna workshop led by my talented friend and fellow art educator TSB // @hennamama808 (since we only know each other through instagram names!) We sat next to each other and as faith would have it, we promised to continue or friendship for years to come.

So here we are, a few years later and Jenny has become my mentor and doterra inspiration! In addition to being a self made badass in her own right, she has taken on the role and lead to nurture our growing interest in entrepreneurship in health and wellness!

Please follow our journeys and support the holistic cause.

I’ll be posting more here since I’ve taken myself out of IG atmosphere. Back to blogging. Back to basics.

Find me here, if you are lucky.
