Very Damn Essential

Sometimes the best part about starting your own thing is getting to change stuff whenever you feel like it (this is going to be a recurring theme for 2015…you just wait).

Bliss Bombs was the name that came to me right away when I started my essential oil business, but I was just…never really all that in love with it. The gentle and flowy spirit stuff…I love it in others, but it’s just not me.

For years now I’ve been writing pieces that I’ve categorized as Very Damn Important…sort of in-your-face, fucking-love-yourself-already type stuff. This past week, while working on a new product that I’m ÜBER excited about, I realized that kind of sensibility was the exact same attitude I wanted my company to have. Fun, edgy, ballsy, and bold.

So today I’d like to introduce you to Very Damn Essential. Very Damn Essential is about creating the raddest life possible through a thing called better natural wellness. Basically: Meditation and yoga defragments your sweet, sweet brain + removes gross toxins from your hot bod. Essential oils are the shit and can change your life, so you should try them. A wholeness approach to diet and fitness keeps you looking and feeling fresh to death. And you can kick life in the balls way harder when you give yourself some bombass self-love every once in a while.

Or, like Greg Behrendt once said: “You deserve to have the things in life you want, that’s why you were given a life in the first place. But those things will only come from making good choices and setting the bar high for yourself. And we only know this, not because we set the bar high, but because for a long time we had both set the bar very low and were determined to learn from it.” 

Basically, it’s about being cool to yourself.

(Also, it’d be cool to me if you’d check out the new Facebook page)

Anyway: I’m super jazzed about this new shakedown. You know that thing where things start to fall together and it just feel right, so much so that when you’re watching the Screen Guild Awards on Sunday night you find yourself realizing that you’re floating and happy and all shades of content right now, and when you get distracted by House of Cards and Game of Thrones getting fucking robbed by Downton Abbey again, you momentarily forget why you’re so happy until a little voice in the back of your mind answers, “Because this shit feels good” and you’re like “oh yeah!”?

This is that.

About Amber L.

Hi! I'm Amber. I've been telling stories with books and blogs since 2004. I also spent 10 years working as a behavior therapist, which I now put to proper use by publishing thought pieces and dissertations on '80s pop music and the defining TV shows of our current times ('The Bachelor', 'Vanderpump Rules', etc). I can also be credited with single-handedly ruining the city of Portland, OR just by moving here.
