Have you noticed it? Or maybe you’re a part of it…
The norm is for high-functioning, high-capacity, successful women to live life exhausted thinking that how they feel is just “normal”. They exist in a chronically depleted state and then they tell themselves “that’s just the way it is”, “it’s normal”, “that’s how it is when you’re a mom and you’re busy…” or whatever other kind of justification they create in their mind.
THIS IS NOT TRUE!
I lived life like that for quite some time until I paid attention to my wake-up call. And I know what it’s like to live life on the other side of this.

From Wired & Tired to Thriving in Life Again [Full Text]
Jen: Hey everyone. I am so excited to introduce my next guest to you on the podcast, or if you’re watching on the video, you’re going to be in for a treat today. Dr. Mariza Snyder, we met at a conference a couple of years ago and got to connect again last year and I absolutely knew without a doubt that she needed to be on the Energy to Thrive Podcast.
Not only is she super beautiful, she is also super smart. She graduated from Chiropractic College back in 2008, Cum Laude, and has a background in biochemistry, and certifications in nutrition and aromatherapy. What I know from talking with Mariza is that she is so passionate about sharing her expertise with women around holistic medicine and nutrition to really help them up-level their health and their energy levels.
I just want to say thank you for joining me today and I cannot wait to dive in with you.
Mariza: Me too, Jennifer. It’s such a pleasure to be able to connect with you today. I felt the same way when we met. There was definitely an instant magic.
Jen: Yes, it’s fun. We’re lucky to be able to get to know each other, in a personal space too, because I wouldn’t have known about your work otherwise. It would have taken me probably those random connections to find you.
What I think is going to be so interesting, especially for the listeners tuning in, we were just saying before the show started that it is just the norm for women to be walking around feeling a complete lack of energy, so depleted, and somehow they tell themselves, “Well, that’s just the way it is. That’s what’s normal when I’m a mom and I’m busy.” You were just saying that’s so not true.
Let’s go into that.
Mariza: Absolutely. I always think of it as a whisper. Your body is whispering at you. Even when I was in my mid to late 20s, I kind of got a head start. I was a super overachiever. I was always running around, I was always going from here to there.
I grew up thinking, as a woman, that I served best being the most productive to my community and most productive to the people that I cared about most. If I wasn’t showing up for those people, even early on, it’s kind of how I was trained or taught, then I wasn’t a good enough woman. It was connected to my worthiness.
Sure enough, in my mid to late 20s everything came to a screeching halt for me. There were signs. There were migraines. I was getting sick a lot. I wasn’t sleeping very well. I was putting on weight. I was having mood issues, I was irritable. I was tired all day. It was over time that these things happened, but I was so grateful that I kind of had that major wakeup call.
Jen: Let’s just stop right there, because you said something really key and I want to make sure people heard it. That is, you got so much of your value from what you did. Your worth was driven not by simply who you were, or how much you loved, but it was being accomplishment driven and productivity driven.
I so find that to be this addictive bully system that women have cultivated for themselves, “I’m not worthy,” and you don’t even know that you’re doing it. It’s such a subconscious thing.
Mariza: Absolutely. I had no idea that that was what was going on with me.
Jen: You were saying that those whispers were coming then?
Mariza: Yes, so I had whispers coming in, and again you don’t listen to them because it really does feel par for the course. It feels like, “This is kind of what has to happen in order for me to continue to produce, or to create, or to take care of the people in my life, to show up the way that I’m supposed to.” Although, I was really showing up with an empty vessel.
Then ultimately what happened is I showed up as an empty vessel for me. I’m so blessed that this happened early on in my life, because when things come to a screeching halt like that you have to reevaluate.
Jen: Was there a pivotal moment that defines that screeching halt awareness? For me, I remember that turn around moment so clearly. What was it for you?
Mariza: We were talking a lot and I know that this is a big part of you. I think for me, even in my mid to late 20s, a part of that was weight was coming on for absolutely no reason. My PMS and my hormones were so out of control, I felt like I was raging. My migraines had come on pretty strong.
It was a lot of different symptoms that culminated at once. I realized that something could not be right. Something was not right with my body at that point.
I work with so many women who for them it was a panic attack, or they’re completely bone-crushing fatigued for no reason, or it’s an autoimmune disease like thyroiditis or Hashimoto’s. Luckily for me it wasn’t a very significant turning point in terms of a condition.
Jen: It could have become that way if you didn’t pay attention, right?
Mariza: Absolutely. Guaranteed I would have Hashimoto’s and thyroid burnout and everything else.
Jen: You just chose to listen and make a change. What did you start to do?
Mariza: I started checking in. I started doing some gut checking, because there were a lot of things in my life that were absolutely not serving me. I wasn’t joyful. I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t even paying attention. I was like a robot zombie. I don’t know if there are robot zombies out there, but if there was I would be it.
Jen: If you can’t see Mariza on the video because you’re listening to the podcast, you would just find this so hard to believe. Especially when I meet you, there’s no way that I could imagine that you would have existed that way. That’s what I think is so hopeful for people is that there were people once in possibly the space that a listener is in now who got out of it.
That’s what we need to share. First of all, it’s not normal. Your body is giving you signals and symptoms, and whispers, and sometimes a two-by-four across the head to wake up. Once you choose to do it you can really have amazing change in your life.
We started off talking about why doesn’t the quick fix work and why does it actually require establishing a health foundation?
Mariza: Absolutely. A couple of those key things in terms of a health foundation is one, foundationally you’ve got to dive in emotionally. You’ve got to really ask yourself, “Is this serving me? Is this serving my passion? Is this serving my joy?” every single day. We only get one opportunity to do this, and we only get one opportunity to do this in a really abundant way.
A lot of things had to go. Relationships had to go. Things that I put on to my plate, projects that weren’t serving me or I didn’t have joy in them, they had to go. I had projects that I thought would continue to further my career, to further me to get into graduate school, but I realized that I didn’t enjoy doing them and they had to be let go.
A big part of that, and we’re talking about foundational, is what I was feeding myself, literally in terms of nutrition. When I looked at it, I was eating horribly. I didn’t know any better. I was a couple years out of college. I was living off of diet sodas and coffee to get through the day. I was eating horrible food choices, a lot of it was processed foods. I was oftentimes using wine and alcohol to fall asleep at night because I felt so wired and tired.
Jen: You’ve just touched on two core capacities of Energy to Thrive; nutrition and emotions. You just said that basically, if you don’t pay attention to either one of those you are skipping the foundational building steps that we need to implement. I just want to wholeheartedly support that. This podcast is focused towards women to listen to get that you can’t just focus on all of this external stuff. You can’t go buy new furniture and hope that it’s going to make you feel better, or lose weight. It might be a nicer thing to look at which might bring you joy, but we often do so many empty things in our life trying to make things better without being willing to look in.
Mariza: No, you can’t just bully your way through. That was my big lesson.
Jen: You cannot bully your way through. How did you start?
Mariza: I just thought if I kept pushing, but we can’t just keep pushing. At some point there’s a breaking point.
Jen: Why aren’t we taught that, do you think? I really believe we’ve been taught to push. It’s such a masculine way to live, not that I know a ton about masculine and feminine energy, but high achieving women often are driven by the push psychology. We can only make money if we work really hard. We’re only valuable if we do a ton of shit.
Where do you think that comes from?
Mariza: It’s far deeper than the lineage, but it definitely came from my lineage. My mom was very much that woman. She was a single mom of two girls.
I launched a summit back in August, The Women’s Balance Summit, because this is such an important topic for me. One of my favorite terms is coined by Olivia Weaver which is ‘rushing women’s syndrome’. My mom literally was the epitome of the rushing woman and I watched her production.
I remember growing up seeing her come picking us up. She was a single mom, so she worked. I could hear her from the street from the car with her heels, her power walk, her power suit. I could hear the keys jingling. She was on the move to come and get us so that we could get out of there.
I remember growing up that I wanted to be my mom. I wanted to be this super incredibly productive woman, super busy, rocking the hot high heeled business suit. I don’t know why I wanted it, but I wanted that so bad. Really, I had to let go of that. I didn’t let go of that until I realized it wasn’t serving me.
Surely it wasn’t serving my mom. I’ve been my mom’s core practitioner for many years now. A big part of that journey her navigating through perimenopause and menopause and having to shift a lot of things there because she was falling apart. She was having a really hard time in terms of anxiousness, depression, weight, energy, every symptom under the sun when it came to perimenopause and menopause. It all related back to the lifestyle that she was living.
Oftentimes it doesn’t happen in the 20s when everything starts to fall apart, it usually starts to happen in our 40s and in our 50’s.
Jen: Totally, you can get away with a lot. Often I think our body is set up to handle so much stuff. So many of my clients, I feel like it’s this awakening in late 30s early 40s when all of a sudden this ability to have time for yourself has decreased so much with either having a husband and children, and a career, and volunteering, to even maybe taking care of parents, that somehow they think, “I can’t do it like this anymore.”
Sometimes we feel that, we know it and then we dumb it down and numb it by drinking wine, or whatever it is that we do at night, to just ignore.
Mariza: Or medication.
Jen: Medication, yes, antidepressants, anti-anxiolytics, whatever, because we go to the doctor and he says, “Oh, well you know what? You just need to get through this time. I’ll give you a little something.”
Where do we start? When a woman comes to you in perhaps exactly that state, overweight, busy, feeling productive is the way she gets worth, maybe disconnected from her partner, she’s on two or three different medications. She knows that she’s drinking wine, she probably knows that it’s too much, not an alcoholic but dependent, or uses it to relax a lot. She’s not eating well, drinking coffee all day, and surviving on salad to try to lose weight.
What do they do?
Mariza: The first step, for me and so many of the women I work with, is self-awareness. It’s starting to recognize that these little messages, these little whispers or symptoms are definitely a call to action.
Jen: I support you totally. I 100% agree.
Mariza: I have to continue to gut check. My default mode is to go back into rushing woman syndrome. I know better, but there are moments where we have a lot of things on the table and I’ve got to go back and check, “Is this serving? Why did we bring this on? Am I sleeping well enough? Do I have the energy?”
When you become not only self-aware and even have body awareness, you recognize when things aren’t working properly, you know when you’re not feeling well. That’s the first step and I am such a major proponent for self-care rituals and self-love rituals.
Jen: Let’s pause right there, because that’s a topic we hear so often in the personal development world. Which I consider myself in, but I do it through weight loss and helping women achieve that, but then diving into some of the stuff we’re talking about. The words abundant self-love, self-care, so many times you hear it and think, “I don’t have time for that crap.”
There’s such a resistance around it. I want to talk about that. Can we just break that down because often it has a new-agey sort of feel.
Mariza: I am not about the new-agey stuff. It doesn’t work for me. I’ve told you who I am and you kind of get a sense. I’m always riding that line and taking care of myself.
When it comes to those rituals, again, we have to take a moment and pause. For me, what I do is I wake up every single morning and I have a morning ritual. The reason for that is if I don’t set the tone for the day accordingly, chaos ensues. Other people, it’s either their needs, because that’s ultimately what happens for us as women is we are serving other people’s needs. What about your needs first?
I made a vital mistake this morning. I made a vital mistake as I’m going through a couple of my rituals, which by the way are only 15 minutes. Argue with me that you don’t have 15 minutes.
Jen: Many people think they don’t. Many people will say that they don’t.
Mariza: I’m going to tell you right now, you do. My phone usually stays away from me in those first 15 minutes, because the moment I open my phone it opens up the world to other people’s needs. Sure enough I had received a text message that I shouldn’t have read, because it ultimate threw my whole morning off, topsy-turvy.
Someone’s negative crap vomited all over me and my text message. I shouldn’t have opened it. If I had taken the time to take care of myself first, I would have been more prepared for that. Someone else is vomiting on me. That’s what happens. People are ready to vomit on us at any given time.
Jen: It’s a boundary thing, too. This is what I was going to say. You said self-awareness, so number one, you cannot change what you’re not aware of. That’s the key there. You can’t change something, and that’s often why we go through our journey or our challenges or our struggles, is because there’s a wakeup call trying to happen and we haven’t been paying attention. Often those challenges get bigger, so we wake up.
Then, what I love about this too about the self-care ritual, I don’t care if anyone listening is thinking, “Ritual smitual.” The reason we have to be conscious, I think, about developing these rituals is because we’ve been operating by default crappy habit for so long that we’ll go back to that if we don’t have something else to lean in to.
Mariza: Absolutely. You can only serve for an empty vessel for so long. You can’t do it. That’s what the problem is, the reason that women are coming to me. The question always is, “Do you feel that if you continue at this rate that it is going to get better?”
Jen: What do they say? They know.
Mariza: No, no, it’s not. Those are always those qualifying questions. “Well, do you feel like something needs to shift?”
Mariza: Yes, something needs to shift. “Okay, here’s the game plan.” 15 minutes in the morning, for me, has got to be gratitude journaling. It’s really hard to be a grouchy pants or whatever it may be, or come in with a negative mindset, which fuels so much of our lack of our inability to have that energy.
Gratitude journaling for five minutes, I love using essential oils with that, like a peppermint and a wild orange, or a peppermint and a grapefruit, because they’re instant energizers. They literally energize the brain.
Jen: We’re going to get to a really favorite part of this interview, I have a feeling. I’m literally super curious to know and want to share it. In my experience with my clients, the years I’ve been doing this, so many times the quick fix has been something that’s medicated. It’s something that has been prescribed, medicated, and full of synthetic crap.
I know, and what I find so interesting about you, is I know that you use natural essential oils to help with some of the foundation health building and routines. I can’t remember who it is that I texted. It wasn’t you. I was having trouble sleeping and she said, “Just put two drops of lavender on your pillow.”, and I said, “That sounds amazing. How does it work? I don’t even care. I’ll try it.”
Mariza: It’s easy.
Jen: And it smells good.
Mariza: Yes, it smells good. Absolutely. We are still looking for a quick fix. We are still absolutely looking for something that’s going to shift. The thing that I love about essential oils, and I use them throughout my entire morning ritual and throughout the day, is they bridge the gap to the healthy lifestyle habits and the foundation that we want.
A lot of us are not exercising. You almost had to pay me to go to the gym this morning. I was thinking, “I don’t want to go,” but I went. I go all the time, but I don’t know what it was about today. I’ve got some deadlines coming up, that could have been it.
The thing that got me there was peppermint oil. I just breathed in some peppermint. I put a little bit of peppermint oil in my water and immediately, whatever that was, it just went away. I got in the car. I got to the gym. I did my workout and burned 600 calories.
I love using that to bridge the gap to getting me into that habit. We know the habits that we’re supposed to, you know, the foundational habits. It’s good nutrition, so eating the colors of the rainbow. It’s sleep. It’s reducing stress and making sure that we’re managing those moments that are overwhelming. It’s exercise and it’s reducing toxic load. Those are the foundations.
Jen: I’m going to put you on the spot right now. Are you ready for it?
Jen: Okay. I’m going to just think of myself and I’m going to think of some of my clients that I’ve spoken to already today. I’m always feeling like I need a cheat sheet. I feel like I have such limited understanding of where essential oils could play a role in my life. Someone said to me, “Oh, I think sage oil helps with headaches, maybe it was peppermint. I forget. This is why I wanted to ask you.
I also know that there are a lot of over-the-counter products being consumed by women, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, you name it, cold and flu medication.
Mariza: Digestive medication, pain medication, headache medication. It’s all specifically targeted for all of those issues that are related to the fact that we’re not taking care of ourselves.
Jen: Yes, granted we have to start with some of the basic things you said, like eating better, getting the sleep that we need, being proactive with how we’re dealing with stress. For so many of us, we tolerate so much stuff in our life. That’s another thing to learn how to do is set healthy boundaries and make yourself a priority.
For people listening right now, if we could go through a quick rundown, a cheat sheet really, of things like, “If I can’t sleep what would be the essential oil?” Can we do that?
Mariza: Yes, I can run through all of those. Let’s say it is energy. Energy is the thing that everyone wants. It’s the elusive in the sky butterfly that you can’t catch.
Jen: So, it’s 3:00 and normally my habit would be, “It’s going to be time to pickup kids, activities, dinner. I need to get coffee.” What would I do instead?
Mariza: Go to Starbucks, get your iced coffee, drink your Red Bull, or maybe a little piece of chocolate. You’re justifying. You’re thinking, “I’ve got to get through the rest of the day. What am I going to do?” That used to be my number one go-to or those were my options that do not serve.
I would say that my energizer bunnies are orange and peppermint. It’s because of the monoterpenes and alcohol constituents in these two particular oils. They will shoot right into the olfactory bulb into the limbic brain and it will turn on those dopamine and serotonin in a really wonderful and supportive way.
It’s not going to rev up your adrenals. It’s not going to have you dump a ton of cortisol into the body. This is going to give you the energy that you’re looking for. You literally just do two drops.
Jen: So, orange and peppermint. See, I told you, how beautiful and smart. This is exactly it. We don’t want to have the hormonal bio-chemical crap storm that chocolate and coffee is going to create.
Mariza: It’s a cycle. You’re literally feeding the most vicious cycle of them all.
Jen: That’s awesome. That’s energy, okay? We’ll have this in show notes if you want to come back down and grab some of these key things, you can come back to that page.
What about headaches?
Mariza: Stress, everything that we’re dealing with, I have never met a woman who was not dealing with headaches, or neck and muscle shoulder tension. Wintergreen, peppermint, those are two great ones. Those would be my go-tos, and you would just layer them on.
Honestly, peppermint. If there is one oil that you keep on you at all times, it’s peppermint oil. We don’t go anywhere without that oil, because it literally has a hundred different functions for the human physiology.
Jen: That’s amazing, but we’re given prescriptions instead.
Mariza: Around wherever the headaches is. For me it’s always occipital, because it’s always related to those angry neck muscles and it’s always stress. It’s always that tension. I just put peppermint on the back of the neck anytime that I’m feeling that tension, especially when you’re working like this on your computer all day.
Jen: Awesome, that’s another great one. Sleep, we touched on. Sleep becomes an issue for a lot of people, often because they’re not exercising. They’re drinking stuff at night, like booze. They’ve had too much caffeine during the day and then their mind just doesn’t shut off.
Mariza: Mind chatter, worry, anxiousness, depression, all of it is just playing into that. The power combo is going to be lavender and vetiver. You can have it in a spritzer. You can diffuse it.
You can’t see my little diffuser. It sits right next to our bed. Two hours before bedtime we need to start shutting those things off, so we start diffusing two drops of those two oils.
If you don’t want vetiver, cedar wood is your other option. For women in particular, because clary sage is such a wonderful oil for hormones and reducing stress, lavender and clary sage.
Those are your three options.
Jen: Amazing. What else am I missing here? Are there any other chronic things that we’re experiencing every day that often we’re going to be reaching for the unhealthy thing that there’s a better option?
Mariza: Digestion. So often we’re eating foods that completely enflame us. Oftentimes, because we’re on the go, or we don’t know, we have no idea that dairy is messing with us. Maybe we do, but we just think, “I’m going to ride that line.”
Your go-to is going to be peppermint, lo and behold. Diluted and literally right over the stomach. The great thing about oils is that when they go on to the skin topically they go into the system within 30 seconds upon contact.
Jen: That’s what I wanted to ask you, too. Right now we’ve talked about topical application, smelling, putting in water for the aromatic sense of it, and then also putting drops in water. How do you know which one to do?
Mariza: It just really depends on the situation. When I say topical, anything mood related or related to how you want to feel, it’s going to be aromatic, connecting to that limbic brain. That survival part of the brain is where we house our memory, where we house trauma, where we house emotion, and it’s directly connected to the hypothalamus which is controlling all of the hormones that go everywhere into the body.
If you want to be able to re-shift and calibrate what happens, especially with the neuroendocrine system, essential oils are some of the most powerful constituents that you can use for making that change. I’m working with women right now who are dealing with loss and tragedy, and there are oils that can really help people overcome those things.
Digestion, really quickly; ginger, fennel and peppermint are going to be your go-tos. Think about ginger. Eating ginger root, or fennel too, fennel tea, these are all great things. Topically, instead it taking 30 to 45 minutes we’re talking about less than two minutes, just layering over each other.
Again, stress is a major one. I have a really powerful go-to de-stressing blend. It will lower stress within a matter of 30 seconds. It’s two drops of lavender, two drops of bergamot, that’s known as the self-love and self-acceptance oil. I love bergamot. It’s a heart-centered oil. Then frankincense, because frankincense is just really wonderful. It crosses over the blood brain barrier because of all of those sesquiterpenes. That’s my stress-buster blend. I use it probably at least one time a day, I’ll admit.
Jen: Do you actually walk around with this stuff in your purse?
Mariza: Yes. Absolutely. That is my emergency stash. I call it my emergency stash. I keep 10 oils on me at all times and five of those oils are emotional oils.
Jen: I’m going to ask you just practical questions now, because I’ve got a really nice purse. How do you know that this stuff isn’t going to leak and stuff like that? That’s what people worry about.
Mariza: I have a little pouch. I’ve been carrying them around for years. The bottle lids are screwed on tight, they never leak. So, no worries. I also have a really nice purse.
Jen: I know you do. It’s so funny because often at the one conference that we go to, you talk about something you’re feeling and literally someone will have something for you on hand in their bag. Not once has anyone said, “Oh, you should go just get a Tylenol.” not once.
What I like about this is I think that so many times women are curious about wanting to get this information. Like me, I consider myself smart and fairly in the know about holistic and natural alternative therapies. I’m totally wired that way. It’s not that I don’t like Western medicine, I think there’s a time and a place for it. However, I think it has totally over-ridden our health system – that’s another conversation.
I’m always looking for other ways to support myself and my clients and yet often don’t have enough time to do the research behind it. Talking to people like you, with your background, education, experience, it’s so helpful.
Mariza: Nutrition was the number one thing. If I had to name one big game changer in my life that made all the difference in the world foundationally, it’s what we put in our bodies. The second biggest thing that happened for me was essential oils. To be honest with you, I come from a lineage of hormone chaos, hormone chaos and production, which literally is the perfect storm.
For us, my whole family uses oils. It’s because of me. They’ve made such an impact in our life. I’ve particularly reach for them for emotional support, mood support, because that’s ultimately what’s driving so much of our behavior. That’s been the biggest key.
Like I said, when I’m out in public or I’m with strangers I see we struggle and we suffer. If I can pull out an oil and shift the mood in someone in less than 15 seconds, I am going to do that. I am like a little oil fairy.
Jen: What do you say when you encounter skeptics? I’m sure people listening are thinking, “Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.”
Mariza: I’ve never encountered skeptics. Honestly, if it’s on the spot and someone is struggling and I say, “Hey, I’ve got a solution for you right now. Are you open to trying to it?” No one has ever said, “No.”
Jen: When you’ve got a problem, you’re willing to try anything to solve it.
Mariza: If it’s got no side effects and it’s only side benefit, it’s worth trying. If it is an oil that all you have to do is put it on or breathe it in and it takes 10 seconds of your time, people are open. They’re totally down to try it.
Jen: Mariza, this is so cool. It is within my total duty to share you with the world here. How can people find you? It’s one thing to listen to a podcast, but it’s really nice to have the link to get more information if they want to learn more. What would be the best place for our listeners to go today?
Mariza: Clearly, a good place to go is our website. DrMariza.com, but also we’re going to have a really amazing link. I have a vitality bundle that has got my self-care rituals, that has my energy guide, and has my go-to favorite matcha green smoothies. I’m such a matcha girl.
Jen: That’s another conversation. We’ll have to have you back to talk about that.
Mariza: We love putting it in our green smoothies. Probably one of my number one foundational habits in the morning is a green smoothie that carries 10 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables in it. Talk about getting your energy. I mean coffee, Red Bull, sugar be gone when you have such a nutritionally-dense habit.
That little bundle, we’re going to give it to you. I don’t know the link 100%.
Jen: That’s okay. It will be on show notes. It’s hard for people to write stuff down while they’re listening anyway.
Mariza: We have a brand new ebook that we may add. It’s my top 10 essential oils that go in my purse. People always want to know, “What do you keep in your purse? What is it that you have to have with you?”
Jen: That’s exactly what I asked you. You want to know. When you see someone like you who has gone through the rushing woman syndrome, who has the education. This is who I work with, smart, driven, high-achieving women who don’t want to be stuck feeling like they lack energy and are overweight and frumpy and burned out.
Mariza: No one wants that.
Jen: No one says that that’s how they want to feel, but will tolerate it. I know because I did to. It took getting Mono at 36 for me to recognize that there were some big changes that needed to happen.
You’re amazing. I’m conscious of the time, we’re at our 30 minutes here.
For everyone who has tuned in, thank you so much for joining us in the Energy to Thrive Podcast. Dr. Mariza Snyder is amazing, as you can tell. Come back to the page for show notes where you can grab all of her links.
Dr. Mariza, so much for being with me.
Mariza: Oh my goodness, Jennifer, it was such a pleasure. This was so much fun to be able to connect with you. Everyone who gets to connect on this podcast are so blessed to get to share in your wisdom.
Jen: Oh, well it’s been harder than some of it, but thank you. That’s the thing I want to share. We all go through our stuff and then sometimes continue to go through it, but you get through to the other side. I am going to be talking to you after the show to learn more about essential oils, so just stand by.
Bye everyone. Thanks for tuning in today and make sure you catch the show coming up next week. Bye for now.
