Hi there! I’m Danya (pronounced just like it’s spelled, Dan-ya), and I’m the girl behind the Oily Cottage. I’ve noticed a few more friends, so I thought I’d say hello. Welcome.
My husband and I live in a teensy old cottage, just blocks from the rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean, in a little town known as Pacific Grove. We traded sunshine for fog, sand for rock and sharks for whales (well, I suppose we still have sharks here too ), when we swapped the Gulf Coast for the West Coast about 6 years ago.
We are a worship leading duo and can be found traveling the coast leading and teaching from time to time.
I fell in love with oils when they were a last resort for a few health issues and haven’t looked back. We’ve ditched and switched the toxins in our home for clean, smell good, plant based products and our home has never been sweeter. (I even use plant based make up now too and love what it’s done for my skin!) You’ll often find us taking weekend trips to Tahoe or Big Sur, exploring the rugged coastline or snuggling our pup Blakely.
I’m obsessed with coffee, anything beautiful, intense spin classes and still trying to find my inner yogi.
My better half loves basketball, coffee and weird documentaries.
Together, we make a pretty great team. And we are so happy to have you stop by our little cottage.
Say hello and tell me something I should know about you? Can’t wait to be friends!
