To wash my face and nourish my skin and cleanse myself of everything that happened through the day, and then to sit in bed with my journal or a book of poems or a novel and a cup of tea, is the perfect way for me to ensure a good night’s rest.” She also shared that sometimes she put natural herbs in her tea in order to induce lucid dreaming.

As per Vulture, she explained her alternative lifestyle in 2013, saying, “I gather my own spring water from mountains every month. I go to a farm to get my food. I make everything from my own toothpaste to my own body lotions and face oils … I make my own medicines; I don’t get those from doctors. I make my own cheese and forage wild foods and identify wild plants.” Woodley revealed, “Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials – that are not necessarily the best for you”.
