This podcast is sponsored by Joovv Red Light Therapy. Like many of you, I am always trying to find different ways to keep my wellness routine in check. I’ve noticed some of the things that are most helpful to me are practicing daily gratitude, a no-phone rule one hour before and after bed, eating healthy and exercising, and if you’ve been listening to me for a while now, getting in my light therapy sessions. I’ve told you before about why I personally love Joovv before: the skin and hair benefits are awesome and I find that I recover faster from soreness after working out. Joovv is my preferred red light therapy device because it has a patented, modular system that lets you build as you go so you can find a way to fit it into your budget. They have full-body devices (Joovv Elite & Duo) and you can keep connecting these pieces together to make it as big of a device as you like. They also have a Desktop model (Joovv Mini), which is great for travel or for spot treating. Remember, when it comes to natural light modalities, bigger is better for optimal benefits, which is why their modular system is so unique. I wanted my listeners to know they offer exclusive discounts on larger devices when you upgrade your system within the first year of your initial purchase. Their unique modular design lets you build a larger, full-body system over time, and their bundle pricing ensures you’ll pay only what you would have paid if you bought the larger system from the start.

This podcast is brought to you by Wellnesse, my new personal care company that is based on the DIY recipes I have been making for years. Many “clean” products simply don’t work. This is why I have spent the last decade researching and perfecting recipes for products that not only eliminate toxic chemicals but also have ingredients that work BETTER than the conventional alternatives by your body from the outside in. I’m so excited to finally share these products with you and wanted to tell you about our brand new dry shampoo, which is our newest product! Our dry shampoo takes care of all your hair needs, naturally. Tousle in clean hair to add volume, sprinkle to absorb oil or sweat, work in to maintain color-treated hair by skipping a wash or two. It contains Oil-absorbing kaolin clay and volume-boosting tapioca work together to refresh hair at the roots. Lavender oil and cactus flower help balance scalp and to keep the hairs natural pH. We even added hibiscus for healthy hair growth. Try it at Wellnesse.com – and TIP: grab a bundle and save with the built in discount or subscribe and save to save on each order!
