For too long, we’ve struggled with low energy.  So much, we recently crawled our way to our health guru’s office, Andrea Larsen, for a thorough round of blood work, including our hormone levels.  More on that another post soon.

In the meantime, rather than up our coffee intake, or add an extra scoop of mushroom-something  to our smoothie, we decided to change gears and try a different approach.

Enter UMA Beauty Oils to our rescue.

Developed based on ancient, Ayurvedic tradition, their oils are comprised of the most natural, potent botanicals, derived from innovative extraction techniques to deliver the purest, good-for-body (and soul) elixirs.

After reading more about the history of this brand and founder, we’re nothing short of impressed. Their legacy of oil craftsmanship dates back centuries, including the growing and harvesting of their botanicals to ensure organic purity that’s second to none. So much, they’ve worked the world’s most prestigious beauty brands, from Tom Ford to Estée Lauder.

Today, the company is run by Shrankhla Holecek. Raised in India, she immersed herself in Ayruveda and holistic medicine, before moving to the US for business school. It was during this time where she found herself surrounded by misappropriations of the Indian rituals and Ayurvedic practices she had grown up with.  Frustrated, she decided it was time to create a line of products with integrity. One that would elevate her family’s extraordinary legacy of craftsmanship.

Her mission with Uma:

 To give women access to powerful, artisan products that will deliver dramatic results, of the rapid, perceptible and sustainable variety.

Along with finding our energy cure, we’re also loving a few more here:

Pure Energy Wellness Oil, $85

Containing rosemary and peppermint, this oil increases mental alertness and focus, and provides sustained energy for hours.  So good, it’s become ‘our go-to’, keeping it handy in our car – such as when driving from one soccer practice to another. Just a  few drops behind our ears and wrists –  pure magic.


Absolute Anti-aging Body Oil, $90

Can you say complete and utter luxury?! This luxury body oil is the only moisturizer needed for glowing skin from head to toe. Rich in indulgent botanicals like sandalwood, rose, and neroli, the fragrance and feel is unreal.  It soothes, it eliminates dryness, it heals cracked skin. It’s simply divine.


Pure Calm Wellness Oil, $85

Pure bliss is what this oil is all about. Rich in chamomile, jasmine and sandalwood, we’ve started rubbing it on our kids’ temples and night, and they absolutely love. It relaxes, it calms, it’s what beautiful dreams are made of.
