In 2019

fullsizeoutput_2139

2018 for me was a year of Spiritual Growth, breaking down Fears, doing scary shit, and not giving a F what people think. I meditated more than I ever had at a life changing retreat that will forever change me. I stopped eating animal protein. I started leading by example instead of following an example. I learned about akashic records and connected with beautiful souls that think like me. I learned Reiki 1 and 2, and try to practice often. I feel things now that I never had before.

So you might ask me, “now what?”

I know everything I learned in 2018 has set me up for 2019. I learned a lot and grew a lot, But Im not perfect. I still raise my voice at my kids, crave cheese and turkey bacon, and still think negative at times. But even if your 2018 didn’t look like mine, It looked like YOURS! The way is was suppose to be.

So in 2019 I hope you stop waiting for things to get better, and stop being so damn negative and instead change your mindset, change your words, then start taking action to MAKE things better. Be brave and fearless, and do shit that scares you!

In 2019 I hope you speak your truth and stop caring what others will think of you. If you are passionate about something, speak it! If you know speaking your truth may help someone or show an example to a loved one, DO IT.

In 2019 I hope you learn to love yourself, Not just the inside, but the outside as well. Meditate and Pray more. Start speaking words of kindness to yourself. You ARE Beautiful, You ARE Worthy, You ARE Love! Show your children that to love yourself if the most important thing in this world, then show them to love others.

In 2019 I hope you stop repeating bad patterns, release what does not serve you and do what makes you happy. Release and find a new healthy pattern. Drink more water, eat more greens, eat less animal protein and raise your frequency by taking walks on the beach or in your backyard. Ground yourself and feel the earth beneath you. Its ok to be quiet with your own mind. Even though sometimes thats scary….So do it. DO SCARY SHIT!

In 2019 I hope you relax and stop rushing. Take time to present with your family and in those small moments that we will never get back. Put down your phone, camera, video and watch through your own eyes. Watch your children play sports, and dress up, watch them read, and eat, THROUGH YOUR EYES! Not your phone.

In 2019 I hope you stop this “Mom Guilt” bullshit and realize that just because a friend posted a picture on social media about their perfect family outing, doesn’t mean you should feel guilty about staying at home ALL winter break! ITS OK!!! THEY STILL LOVE YOU AND YOU ARE A DAMN GOOD MOM!!! We are all just doing the best we can. So tell one mom a day stranger, or friend… “You are a good mom!” I promise you will make their day.

Lastly in 2019 I hope you smile more. Be happy. Choose kindness. When in anger, do not choose words that will hurt, choose kind words or be silent. The anger will pass, but those words can scar. Be nice to people, serve more, give more. Not just to others but yourself as well. Take time for Self care, do things that MAKE you smile more. Take responsibility for your own happiness. It’s within you!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to our Oily Home!❤️🌿

I started this journey three years ago and I have learned so much!

3 years is how long it took me to replace all the toxins in our home. It’s not an overnight thing and I’m still learning everyday, but to see my families overall wellness change over the last 3 years has been unbelievable! Why do we wait around for sickness? Why not live a life full of wellness, abundance, and happiness now.

If you want to learn more about how these oils changed my home and wonder if they can do the same for you, I’m having a LIVE Facebook 101 Event Monday night at 9pm PST. You don’t even have to leave your couch! Friend me, Bre Hamideh, FB Message me you want in my class, and Ill invite you!

DIY Fermented Cabbage aka Sauerkraut 


Gut health is one of the most talked about topics amongst nutrition and wellness experts! So Many are studies that a healthy, well balanced gut flora is one of the key factors in achieving good digestion, and health in general. As well as avoiding stress and toxins that cause an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in our gut in the first place, it’s important to include a variety of fermented foods and probiotics in your diet.
Freshly fermented cabbage, aka sauerkraut, is a wonderful and simple way to add some friendly bacteria to your gut. It’s not always easy to find fresh sauerkraut in stores and people often buy the pasteurised kind you find in the non-refrigerated sections of the supermarket. However, that’s not the sauerkraut you want as all that lively bacteria is destroyed during the pasteurisation process. What you want is fresh sauerkraut in which the bacteria is alive and thriving and which you would keep refrigerated. In this post I show how to make a small batch of fermented sauerkraut in your own kitchen. All you need is a head of cabbage, salt and a jar!

Or if you were like me and bought a Giant size bag of Orangic Coleslaw Mix and didn’t even use 1/4 the bag, you might as well make some sauerkraut! This is so easy and all you need is the cabbage, water and salt! If you want to add some color or other veggies you can throw in some purple cabbage, carrots, garlic, and even onion.  I like to add a few Carraway Seeds and a drop of vitality dill Essential Oil to a few jars for some extra seasoning. Whatever you’re feeling like! 

Ok first things first! Make sure you have a few Mason jars cleaned! I like to boil mine in hot water. Then get all your ingredients and throw them into a big bowl! Add some sea salt and distilled or purified water and start massaging with your hands for a few minutes.  (Salt- add about 1/4 teaspoon to three small fist fulls of ingredients, water-enough to cover the veggies) 

Get your Mason jars ready and start stuffing! I like to stuff until about 1/4 way to the top, you want to try and prevent as many bubbles as possible, then fill the jars up with remaining brine and seal tight! Keep them in the a dark cabinet for 7- 30 days! I like to to take them out at day 7 because I like the crunch of the cabbage. Once you decide on the taste you like throw them in the fridge and can be eaten up to several months! Easy peesy!
