3 resources Jolene recommends:
Jolene’s favourite organization she likes to support:
“I support Unite for HER, a truly unique breast cancer nonprofit based in Philadelphia that provides support to women with breast cancer in the form of free complementary therapies. The therapies include acupuncture, yoga, an organic CSA with nutrition counseling, education on choosing healthy personal care products, and in-home massage, among other opportunities. I’ve had the privilege of serving as Unite for HER’s Beauty and Wellness advisor and providing all of their cosmetic and beauty education for the past 4 years, and we’ve just launched our first national offering, a Breast Cancer care box that can be gifted to a women with breast cancer to provide comfort, support, and connection. I believe the work of this organization could serve as a model for cancer support around the country and the world.”
Pay it forward: highlight someone who is doing good work in the field of holistic medicine, transformation or giving back:
“It’s hard to choose just one person to highlight, but I’m always inspired by the work of Rebecca Casciano, who started her beauty career as a makeup artist and has over the last few years transitioned to educate and provoke deeper discussions on beauty through her inspiring Sacred Beauty Salon. I think in order to get to a place where we love, accept, and feel confident about our own appearance, it’s important to question our foundational beliefs about beauty as Rebecca does in her work.”
Last parting thoughts: what is the takeaway you want people to have? A heartfelt message of empowerment for women listening?
“Remember that making small shifts to your diet and lifestyle can make the biggest impact on the way you look and feel. It’s not necessary to completely overhaul your life or adhere to a strict approach to nutrition or exercise in the pursuit of clear skin or a more youthful glow. Start by eating what’s fresh and in season, pay close attention to what is making your unique body feel its best, and begin making changes to your routine where it feels right to you.”

After spending thousands of dollars on organic, non-toxic skincare products but not seeing much improvements in my skin, I started researching essential oils.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a green beauty junkie, and I love the handmade, small-batch skincare products I've purchased. But I never found ONE serum that would tackle all of my skin's unique needs. So I ended up with a bathroom counter full of lovely products but no real solution.
Through my extensive research on essential oils for sensitive skin, I discovered 5 key oils that targeted my skin’s dehydration, inflammation and breakouts.
After 2 weeks of crafting and testing my own serums made of 100% certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils, I noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin. Specifically, the rosacea breakouts on my cheeks were gone and my skin felt hydrated.
