Hey, I’m Krystal.

I’m a birthkeeper, freethinker, and mama of five awesome Earthlings. I write a lot (a LOT) about a lot of topics.

I’ve been blogging seriously since 2005, and have had two of my articles go viral in the past 5 years (one on essential oils, and another on gardening!).

I’ve been a writer since I could hold a pencil, and spent my K-12 years writing somber poetry and printing out my short stories on a dot-matrix printer.

In my 20s, I obsessively wrote and beta-edited Harry Potter fanfiction, and accidentally made real magic happen (Turns out, hypersigils are a Thing).

I’ve studied Human Design for the past five years, and sometimes offer readings for others. As a self-projected Projector, I prefer using my voice to share my perspective on the world.

New platform, who dis?

I’ve been increasingly disenchanted with social media, so I’m making the effort to gather my many, many writings here, for a wider audience, censorship-free.

Me in six perspectives

BIRTHWORK – I’m a birthkeeper and offer the most artsy + thoughtful online birth education resources to nourish and heal the women of this planet. Two of my five kids were born at home (yes, on purpose).

WELLNESS – We believe that health care is primarily self-care, and health is wealth! The future of healing is in nutrition and energy medicine - and the current system of sick care is in collapse. I’m formally trained in the Bach flower essences, and practice meditation, energy work, yoga, and Reiki. My current curiosity is Chinese medicine.

FANDOMS – With 5 kids, I’m still a kid at heart and love Naruto, Demon Slayer, and Avatar the Last Airbender. My favorite movie of all time is Howl’s Moving Castle, and no, I haven’t watched a single epidose of GoT. Sorry..

FOODIE – My husband is a kitchen wizard and I’m happy to be his sous chef. We are major plant nerds, and strive to grow as much of our own food and medicine as possible. I spent 17 years as a vegetarian, and we’ve been gluten-free for 10 years.

BOOKS – Show me your bookshelf and we’ll be fast friends. I consider it my duty to acquire a proper collection of books, regardless of what Marie Kondo says (and yes, I’m still bitter about the library of Alexandria). I love self-help, natural wellness, and Women Who Run With the Wolves…

OILS – I started out with essential oils from the grocery store back in 2002. It took me ages to try the Big Two oil companies - and one of them turned out to be a heartbreaker. I wrote about it and broke the interet a little.

If you’ve read this far, I haven’t scared you off yet, hey!

Nice to meet you, friend!
