Yolanda Hadid is deeply committed to living a healthy, holistic lifestyle — and her latest passion project keeps her aligned with that mission. Plus, it smells fantastic.
On July 15, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum took to Instagram to showcase a photo of herself knee-deep in some healing research. In the first photo, Yolanda kneels down next to some distillation equipment; a second snap offers a pretty view of blooming lavender fields. In another photo, Yolanda is clutching a dark-brown bottle of what appears to be homemade essential oils.
In the caption that accompanied the idyllic photos, Yolanda explained that she's "learned about the power of botanicals and essential oils" after years of being prescribed more traditional Western drugs to help fight Lyme disease.
"In today’s world where we are overloaded with pharmaceuticals it’s hard to remember the ancient knowledge of healing properties and benefits of all that Mother Earth provides for us..." she wrote. She went on to share that she's "excited" to have her distillation machine up and running, so that she can make oils that are "pure and fragrant."
Scroll down to read the entire caption, and don't be surprised if you suddenly want to leave work early to jump into a warm, fragrant lavender bath.
