I always start my day with meditation, a healthy meal and some form of exercise. If I can’t make it to yoga or a dance class, I’ll do some stretches and breathwork to get my body loose and to get the blood flowing. I meditate first thing before I even get out of bed to set the tone for my day and to allow my day to manifest in a positive and productive way.
As soon as we step out of the comfort of our homes and into the busy and sometimes stressful world of work life it’s easy to have something happen that throws us off our game. Maintaining a happy and zen filled mentality can easily be challenged in numerous ways before you even hit your desk or arrive at your first audition of the day in my case. I take care in staying centered and balanced through out my day but sometimes I just need that extra assistance whether it’s to be patient or put those doubtful thoughts away.
The amazing crew over at Goddess Provisions sent over these items and they have been such a blessing to have. Have you guys heard of Goddess Provisions yet? It’s a monthly subscription box “with tools to nourish your inner goddess and grow your spiritual practice”. They’re all about that high vibe lifestyle and each month you get different items like crystals, aromatherapy, apothecary beauty and more.

Throw them in your purse before you head out and use them to keep those vibes high.
Wellness on the Go
1) Heart Lepidolite Crystal
Lepidolite is a calming and balancing stone that promotes patience and trust during transitions. Carrying this crystal around with you in your purse or in your jeans during your day can have many benefits. Especially when your deadlines and emails are piling up or someone cuts you off in traffic, this crystal comes in handy to maintain a sense of calm and not “loose your s*it” so to speak. When I’m feeling stressed I’ll hold it in my left palm to receive the benefits and connect with it. Take a few deep breaths and feel that relaxing energy come over you. Lepidolite is one of my favorite crystals for dealing with stress and anxiety. Its effects are gentle and it just wipes away all that unpleasant energy.
2) Golden Earth Optimism Chakra Oil
Not only does this essential oil smell absolutely divine, it comes with a whole load of benefits to create balance in your life and relationships. First off lets talk Chakras. Chakras are energy centers located along the mid-line of the spine. When these energy centers are balanced and cleared they allow for life to move with more ease and grace. Getting your chakras in alignment can sometimes be a challenge and essential oils can be helpful to bring the chakras back into balance and help us stay balanced, focused and keep those vibes high.
Golden Earth Optimism Chakra Oil 3 does exactly as it’s name suggests. It’s made with a Neroli essential oil blend that smells heavenly and is infused with Citrine crystal known as the success stone. The third chakra is located about 2 inches above the navel and is our personal power center. If your head is full of doubts, or your felling overwhelmed and your energy levels are low this oil has the benefits to move you to a more balanced state of being and promotes a more positive attitude. To use it I rub a few drops on the third chakra and massage it in. Another way to use this oil for wellness on the go is to rub a few drops in your palms and wave your hands around your aura in a smooth clockwise motion to feel the benefits. Get them chakras right girl!
3) Shanti Bar Vitality
This Shanti Bar Raw Power protein bar is the perfect after or pre workout superfood snack. Throw this in your bag when you need that midday snack or an energy boost. Powered by mulberries, cacao for those antioxidant benefits and enriched with the libido enhancing Maca. It has a spicy chocolate flavor that is quite delicious and got my taste buds excited.
4) Tuore Lip Oil
I’m a lip balm junkie. There are always a few hanging around at the bottom of my purse. Having chapped lips irritates me to the point that I can’t stop licking them. This organic 100% natural botanical lip oil is perfect for your lips when they need that extra moisture. They come in three different blends made with either sweet almond oil, vanilla, lavender or chamomile. The one I have is a Sweet Orange & Ylang Ylang blend that smells amazing, feels light on the lips and is super hydrating.
5) Urban Moonshine Digestive Bitters
Keep bloating and gas at bay while you’re on the go with this handy spray bottle. You can use this digestive bitters spray right on your tongue to fire up your body’s production of digestive juices and enzymes. It also helps to relieve tummy ache, nausea, gas, bloating and keeps your blood sugar in a normal range. There is 30-35% alcohol in it so the original, citrus, and maple flavors are not to be used during pregnancy. The chamomile bitters can be used for occasional nausea and heartburn during pregnancy.
6) 4Ocean Bracelet & Auromère Ayurvedic Soap
The next items mentioned aren’t wellness on the go related, but came in this month’s Goddess Provisions box and I just love what they’re about. 4Ocean bracelets are made from 100% Recycled Materials and every bracelet purchased removes one pound of trash from the Ocean. Gotta love a good cause that takes care of mama earth.
Auromère Ayurvedic Soap is 100% biodegradeable and all natural. Rich in herbal extracts for all types of skin and special skin conditions. All Auromere Ayurvedic soaps are handmade and “contain pure, wild-crafted Neem and Ayurvedic herbs in a rich and creamy coconut oil base”. The Vanilla- Neem blend I received is great for dry and delicate skin. Neem has numerous benefits and is a native tree to the Indian subcontinent. Some of the health benefits of Neem are it’s ability to treat dandruff, protect the skin, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, speed wound healing, promotes healthy hair and scalp, maintain sexual organ health, treat various forms of cancer, and diabetes. *Info sourced from Organic Facts.
