Hey warrior princess, we see you.

Exercising, eating healthy, getting that Namaste every chance you can. You are absolutely killing it. You have it pretty much all together, but you might be wondering about how to extend that health kick into your beauty routine, and we don’t blame you. Why not live your best life?

So let’s talk beauty and wellness, and which vitamins, minerals and oils can help.

Essential oils for aromatherapy.

Light those candles, put on your favorite instrumental tune and surround yourself in these.

Bergamot: reduces stress and skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. It also gives you a nice boost if you’re feeling sluggish.

Chamomile: is a natural relaxant so it will help you get that beauty sleep. Plus, it has anti-acne properties for your skin.

Lemon: is great for skin irritation and can even reduce cellulite. It’s also a good mood enhancer.

Lavender: smells so good that you can use it as a deodorant if you want an organic way to freshen up.

Tea Tree: helps fight infection, heal skin conditions and reduces dandruff.

Patchouli: is a miracle worker for your skin, and helps reduce bloating.

Ylang-Ylang: is hard to pronounce, but effective at stimulating hair growth and soothing headaches and nausea.


There are a few super vitamins you may want to take as supplements – your skin, hair and nails will thank you!

Vitamin E: is our go-to vitamin because it reduces scarring and inflammation, also known as the root of many serious health problems. Vitamin E, ladies, is the ish.

Vitamin A: is the answer to all your thick, glossy hair growth dreams. This vitamin feeds your hair cells a 5-star meal.

Vitamin B7 and keratin: biotin supports keratin, a protein, which makes up your hair, skin and nails, so keeping these two handy will go a long way in your beauty goals.

Vitamin A1, retinol, and collagen: next time you’re shopping for a face cream, for the love of Beyoncé please make sure it has this vitamin-protein duo.


Whether it’s trying to prevent a cold or immersing yourself in your favorite room with healing stones, minerals go a long way in treating yourself to a little natural medicine.

Zinc: is the new ‘it’ cold medicine. You can find it in drugstores, and it works like a modern day amulet: take a zinc tablet at the first sign of a cold and you’ll be on your way to good health in no time.

Healing stone amethyst: this stone helps you relax, fall into a sound sleep and gain balance and insight into your daily life. And remember: you don’t have to wear it; just being in the same room as these healing stones will help.

Healing stone agate: this is the grounding stone. If you are stressed and overwhelmed, spend some time with this mineral to help you accept things, build your confidence, heal from mistakes and bring harmony to your spirit.

Healing stone clear quartz: this stone is known to have a strong resonation with the body, and is considered a healer that helps you manifest desires and intentions.

So with that all said, why not go to your favorite place and practice some ‘you’ time? Bring a stone and let the summer sounds take you away…
