BEHIND GRITS + gRACE

graphic/web design, drinking iced coffee all day errday, All things black, my rose float recipe, wearing leggings with almost anything, salt & vinegar (or EBTB) flavored everything, polka dots & stripes,  interior decorating, margarita MONDAY (& Fridays), being a science nerd, and my secret shame is binge watching netflix - Oitnb, American Horror Story,  BLACKLIST, EVIL, Stranger things & dr pimple popper!

Favorite oil inside the kit:

and I am the founder of the grits & Grace co. oily community. i am so happy you are here! 

my wellness journey began in spring of 2014 - originally seeking support for seasonal threats + better sleep, but I was still skeptic af. following a nasty divorce that left me picking up all the broken pieces & trying to shuffle all the RESPONSIBILITies of a single parent - I completely lost myself.  I felt worthless & easily fell into a dark bout of depression where I couldn't even leave my house. i had lost all sight of every dream and goal i had; even lost my faith and hope. I struggled to focus , i couldn't eat, & neglected to take care of myself. i became very resentful, irritable, & bitter towards everything. I felt extremely isolated, afraid and all alone. the situation quickly became toxic and unhealthy - for not only myself, but also my children. They deserved so much more from me and quite frankly so did I. I needed to start taking better care of myself, but i had little to no motivation. the doctors were quick to prescribe anti-depressants but we all know that is only a quick fix and isn't going to be a long-term fix. i didn't need a quick fix, i needed a sustainable lifestyle change. 

when i decided to end the pity party and take the advice from others to try holistic wellness to heal myself from the inside out using essential oils - I was finally able to say I had never felt more like my true self. I gained a sense of self-confidence, magnified purpose and a restored faith in not only myself, but also these plant oils and what they are capable of. AS I CONTINUE TO MAKE DAILY CHANGES, I AM WALKING THIS JOURNEY OF HEALTH + WELLNESS WITH my ESSENTIAL OILS AND COULDN'T BE MORE THANKFUL.
