Things come full circle. Prior to the array of wonderful products there are today, my mother was into natural wellness way before it was universally ‘cool.’ As an adolescent, I was ever so lucky to try veggie burgers before someone got the hang of good recipes and I did not even know that over the counter nasal decongestant was a thing until my mid-20s-boy did I think that was amazing! I drank hot water, lemon, apple cider vinegar everyday-as a 9 y/o not my favorite thing. Needless to say, I envied households where they had the ‘good’ food-you know, the ones with high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats. So, after I left the house, I was free to eat all the sugar and food I wanted without any thought to the ingredients.
Now getting to the full circle part; I am now so very mindful of what I put in my body. In a world that is now filled with quick, cheap, disposable products of all sorts and lots of chemicals, not only am I mindful of what I eat, but I am also very mindful of what lotions I rub in my skin (no parabens etc…) what aromatherapy oils I use (therapeutic grade/no chemicals), candles I burn (non- lead wicks, ) incense I burn (again no chemicals) and the list goes on. I believe in balance and that there is a place for traditional, natural, and modern medicine. I try and get my nutrients naturally but take supplements as well. I wait out headaches, try to resolve colds, stuffy noses, naturally, and have found natural remedies for most ailments; but at times have resorted to modern medicines. My hope is that our customers come to trust us. Trust we have researched the ingredients and quality. The products I pick for this site are ones that I use and have my children use. If I can get a positive message across as well that is the icing on the cake!
They say ‘mother’s always know best’ and the older I get the wiser I get. I now realize my mother was, and continues to be ahead of the times. Thanks Mom!
