#TANNYRAW tips and tricks :) I usually add about a half a tablespoon of Chia seeds to each of my smoothies it create a thickness over time —- very delicious and filling to the tummy . Chia seeds are a great source of amino acids for building protein in your body. They are phenomenal for hair growth, skin and nails :-)
They are a powerful source of omega three fatty acid‘s. They help you uptake and assimilate the nutrients in fruits and greens… They only contain a small amount of fat because they have protein fat and carbs in each tiny seed. They fill up in your tummy to create satiation and balance for your blood sugar. They’re also like a little brooms working to create a clean existence in your colon — making your tummy flat :-) I have several videos on this - the benefits of Chia seeds and also a video called Chia seed powerhouse :-) on my YouTube channel! It’s little tips like this that have made my life style sustainable over all these years… 16 1/2 years Whole Foods plant-based with the last 11 1/2 years low fat raw vegan :-) I get stronger every day… Don’t you want that :-) #TANNYRAW youtube www.tannyraw.com #HealingIsReal
One of the best things I did for myself was to remove dairy products from my diet. Apart from the fact that it is meant for baby cows 😜, its consumption is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, prostate and breast cancers, diabetes, and acne.
Cows (organic or not) are injected with so many hormones, antibiotics and other crazy stuff that affect our wellbeing. Their milk also contains contaminants like pesticides, PCBs and dioxins - compounds you don't want in your body.
The first complaint I hear when I say cut milk out is, 'where will I get calcium?' For calcium, eat lots of green leafy vegetables and beans. You can get vitamin D from sunlight and mushrooms or even fortified foods like cereals, grains and even orange juice. You can also buy fortified plant milk like almond, cashew, soy or coconut for calcium and vitamin D. If you don't want to buy commercial varieties, make your own. It is super simple, all you need is:
🍃200g / 7oz almonds or cashew nuts (soaked overnight in water, rinsed and drained)
🍃600ml/21 fl oz/ 21/3 cup water
🍃3-4 dates (optional for sweetness)
🍃1/4 tsp natural vanilla extract (optional)
Put the ingredients in a blender. Process on high until smooth then strain the milk through a muslin cloth and enjoy.
Are you a dairy consumer? Will you let go of it or at least reduce the amount you consume? #bysomii
"Who do you listen to?"
One of my biggest lessons! Who do you follow advice from? Is it someone you look up to? Or someone who's still learning lessons the hard way? Who do you surround yourself with? Dreamers? Doers? Or the "how'ers" 🤔
DoTerra is doing another BOGO week!!! .
It comes 1-2 times per year and lasts for 5 days. Starting TOMORROW there’s a new "buy one get one free" offer. The BOGO is set to two featured oils for example: Buy one Lavender get Peppermint free. They are available until they sell out, usually by 4pm EST! I’ll be posting the featured BOGO first thing! So keep an eye out! .
Ways to Order:
If you already have a DoTerra wholesale account, do that! That way you will get points if you order it as an LRP.
Don’t have a wholesale account?? Then get one! How do you not have one! It’s like Costco but for OILS! AND BETTER! Cause you don’t have to stand in line or flash your card! HA! They come right to your door! Whoo!

I will be eternally grateful to those individuals that got me into plant medicine. :) Plant healing is by far one the best things in my life.
I have no complaints about my health. There is an alternative, to almost any ailment, that plant medicine can fix.
This is a touchy subject for many, so I will not say my feelings on the pharmaceutical industry and over the counter drugs. But I will say that I haven't taken anything over the counter since 2013 and it is thanks to plant medicine and plant based healing.
What we place into our bodies matters. We need to be aware of the things we take and the everlasting life long side effects we are pushing ourselves through.
Do your research!!! @lastofadyinbreed You are my sister, my teacher, my friend, and a knowledge goddess in my eyes. You will forever be in my heart. Thank you for teaching me about this with your @doterra knowledge and everything that you continue to learn. @oakwood_natural_living thank you for helping me keep my health at 150% and continuously helping others heal themselves in this day and age. We need more healers like you. And thank you @tonic717 for this amazing hamsa tray that now holds all my healing potions! :) it is great having a friend like you in my life.
I love you all and thank you for your teachings!
Have a wonderful Monday! And support natural healing!

How many ways can I photograph my new haul of gorgeous @herbneden soaps?? Swipe to find out! I had fun trying. Do you love soap (you should if you wash regularly!)? Do you love nature? Plants? Holistic care? Supporting families and small business? Buying American? If you answer yes to all these you need to get over to the @herbneden website and see all they have to offer. I started using these soaps before Christmas and became an instant fan. Not only are they good for you, they make lovely little gifts, so I ordered some extra to keep around. The website is currently having a 5-for-25 sale — that’s 5 bars for $25! The body butters are also incredible. And the soaps come in mini sizes as well — I love that option. These products are made by small batch literally in Terran and Quinton’s kitchen. I’m so impressed with the incredible amount of hard work, research, wealth of knowledge, attention to detail, and love they put into their work. They make videos for every single product — I’m serious, go to the website! — and have a very impressive You Tube channel, Facebook page and Instagram. I love finding people whose passion for nature flows through their work. I mean just look at these pictures. Those are REAL colors — not dyes. Those are real coffee grounds on the Vanilla Mint Coffee bar (I might have touched my tongue to it — don’t judge me!) The Neem and Chlorella is so pretty — that green color blows my mind. These herbal ingredients are from some of the most powerful plants on earth. I often joke about eating these because they look delicious, but the truth is they are made from edible plants — honey, oats, lavender, chlorella, coffee, mint, lemongrass, turmeric, coconut, sea salt, grapefruit, rosemary — these are all used in cooking, tonics, and supplements. I love the idea of treating the outside of my body with the same diverse plant life as I treat my insides. #plants#plantlovers#plantsofinstagram#planthealing#plantlover#nature#naturelover#supportsmallbusiness#familyowned#womanowned#madefromscratch#madeinusa#herbalife#herbalsoap#herbneden
I’m so thrilled to be eating fruit again! 😍😍 today’s smoothie bowl has a huge chunk of ginger, lots of turmeric and some burdock root- a new ingredient that I’m loving so far. Not much taste when raw so I can’t even tell it’s in here but thanks to @drjoshaxe for the great information on burdock root’s uses & benefits! Burdock root is known as a blood cleanser and detox aid, and I’ve realized that one of the first things I need to do in the morning is help my body get rid of whatever was built up from the night before. So in addition to dandelion root tea, I have started using burdock root. After a few glasses of wine last night, I still have no hives today, so something I’m doing is working.... I’m going to chalk it up to the constant detoxing support of what I’m eating! ✨❤️
Just want to share that yesterday I used my Cutco super-shears and accidentally sliced my finger in the strangest way and it went real deep.
I was rushing to put them away and closed a pair of the best scissors ever on my poor little finger. Just from this little snip there was a lot of blood. I ran it under cold water and instantly reached for my lavender essential oil.
It is anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, soothing, slightly cooling, and is incredible for healing up skin wounds. This one included. Applied one drop to the area and wrapped my finger with a band-aid for the day.
But by night time the wound was already quickly healing. Another drop before bedtime and I was able to let it air dry. This morning, the skin is already re-connecting and coming back home to itself.
Today I’ll add in some tea tree and frankincense to the support the antibacterial and cell regeneration even further but man, these oils are lifesavers each and every single day. 🙏🏻 If you’re interested in trying some let me know! I’d love to send you some free samples, and help you get started. Or if you want to join our incredible sisterhood because you already believe in the healing power of these babies then I’d love to connect with you too!
There’s room for everyone to heal, to grow, to love & evolve together. 🦋

Cup size? 1 medium cabbage leaf. Why? Holistic Breath Health, let’s talk about it. So I’m 28, and I found a lump. Scary right? .
Intuitively I don’t feel like this is cancer related. My gut tells me that I have fibrocystic breast tissue, which is incredibly common (80% of women common). I went to my doctor and starting doing regular self checks to monitor changes while I waited for an ultrasound appointment to check it out. All of you that know me, know that I will find a way to use plants. .
In fact, I believe that the universe works in wonderful ways. If I hadn’t discovered this little lump, I wouldn’t actively be educating myself on how to treat it. Since learning, I have also been made aware that many of my friends and family members are dealing with the same issue. .
After my ultrasound I felt the need to go to my favorite healthstore and get a fresh juice, where I ran into one of my favorite women, who is incredibly knowledgeable about natural cures. She shared with me her experience of a treating her own breast lump. She came across an old herbal article suggesting cupping the affected breast with a cabbage leaf, and rotating it out every 8ish hours. She did this for a week and a half and it had completely eliminated the lump and it has never returned. .
While I continue to learn about natural treatments, I’m going to try this most simple of suggestions. .
Most cures can be found in the produce aisle ✌🏼🥗
Enjoying this beautiful blossoming Rosemary on the roof of the hospital between visits. This is one of my favorite plants. Today I’m feeling connected with its cleansing and enlivening energy. The blossoms on the plant are giving it a special pizazz today! It’s nice to feel this wise teacher and old friend in a place of such shimmery connection with new life and creation. Perhaps it’s the #lunarnewyear perhaps it’s all the #honeybees collecting the precious #pollen , perhaps it’s the plants spirit. I suspect some combination of the three. Regardless, I’m so grateful for this #rosemary and the energy it’s sharing with all of us today. #rosemary#planthealing#herbs#gongheifattchoi#chinesenewyear#cleansing
Just a bit o’ kitchen witch’n on this beautiful new moon 🌚
What a hell of a week this has been. I’ve been speaking with a number of people and it seems as though the energy this week has been chaotic, exhaustive, emotionally eruptive and all sorts of uncomfortable.
Withania somnifera is one of my dear plant allies and is the first I reach for when I’m feeling drained.
She is an adaptogen meaning she normalizes and brings us back into balance. If your running on full octane, she’ll gently settle those nerves and provide a sense of calm. If you’re depleted and drained, she will soothe you and give you the nourishment and support your poor adrenal glands need, providing energy and vitality.
She provides resistance to stressors.
She is a dear one that I pull ever closer during these times of upset and chaos. She brings images of a calm and wise old woman to mind for me. Always knowing what I need before I do and slowing my pace and offering me space to think carefully by refusing to get excited herself.
I’m so grateful for her. ❄️🌚❄️🌚❄️🌚❄️🌚❄️🌚❄️ #ashwagandha#adaptogens#wisewomanway#witchesofinstagram#witch#kitchenwitchin#newmoon#landbasedhealing#medicinewoman#innerknowing#intuition#botanicalmedicine#putitinthewatersupply#herbalism#plantallies#planthealing#herbalmedicine#herbalmedicinemaking
“There’s a lot of back and forth in the discussions as to whether cannabis can harm or hurt brain function, causing a bit of confusion in the cannabis community and beyond.
It’s time to set the record straight by examining some of the varying perspectives that have emerged in terms of what happens to the human brain on cannabis and what’s possible in the treatment of certain brain conditions.” 🌸 Read More —> @oovlifestyle
In celebration of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse, I’m introducing Crystal Watering. ✨
This method allows minerals and energy to flow/magnetize to the plants. Starting with Quartz known for its extremely grounding presence and ideal for plant growth. Electromagnetic energy from the crystal that’s generated is conductive to the plants growth. Overall promotion of health, growth and natural vitamins is also provided by this method. ✨
This eclipse brings with it grounding energy. It’s the perfect time to make your intentions crystal clear. New beginnings brings with it our ability to build our dreams/gifts.✨
I know this is a long one, so I apologize but I am really excited! This brings a wonderful element to the plant world/ how we think of treating the living things around us. I’ll be introducing several different kinds of crystals, so get ready🔥

WOW. 😍I couldn’t be more in love with the work of @isaacmitchell and @nikellelovaas of @owlhousecreative for designing such an intricate and beautiful logo! They captured exactly what I was dreaming of and were so patient with my indecisiveness and perfectionism. I am so grateful for these talented folk. Check out their work! Especially if you are a business in need of some media marketing. They won’t let you down! 🧡💛💙🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Wars, shootings, guns and violence
I see them disappearing.
What stopps them?
Inner work. When I am at peace within i fight the demons in my mind and see the world in a peaceful coexistence. When im driving i try and spread love and see myself in the other cars around me. When i walk my neighborhood I let my heart expand and share smiles and greet my neighbors. Once we see peace within, we can see peace outside our mind.
The reason we hate is because we have self anger. Work on loving yourself and watch the outside wars end. ❤💚🌏
Dear Nurse Susan,
I have been plagued with migraines for the last 20 years. I have tried everything and sometimes it helps, but most of the time it doesn’t. I’ve never tried cannabis and I’m a little bit afraid, but willing to put up with the high if it will ease my pain. I figure I can’t function with the pain, so what does it matter if I get high? Thanks for your help.
Splitting Headache 🤕
