I’ve been in the practice of mindfully preparing our whole foods to get the most nutrients and digestibility (is that a real word?!?) out of them as possible.

- Her Story
- Are essential oils safe and effective?
- Can you take oils internally?
- Top safe oils for pregnancy
- What symptoms can oils help
- Difference between high and low quality oils
- How to apply oils

Over on my Instagram page and Facebook group from black women called MAWA, i’ve been asking some questions about life as a sista and the responses have been so very interesting.

In this video I share how I felt about my body throughout my journey of having 7 pregnancies over a 12yr period.
