How Did We Get Here?

  • How did we end up here? We’re elbows deep in beeswax, calendula and website building with eight kids. To tell that story, let’s hop in this handy time machine and take it back to 2011. 
      Ten years ago we were already interested and fairly knowledgeable on herbal, oily and alternative remedies. That May our fourth child made his appearance…almost 3 months earlier than expected. He arrived wailing like a champ, breathing unassisted and happy as a clam. Until he wasn’t. 5 weeks into a NICU stay, the week he was due to go home, our boy developed Spinal Meningitis, found himself on the receiving end of a 3 week antibiotic course & rode an ambulance to a new, more specialized hospital for surgery due to complications. 
      During that time, we dug deep into immune system building, natural remedies, in depth info on essential oils and the science behind it all. 
      I started making much of our products by hand; which led to friends and family asking for them.   
      A year later, after much encouragement (harassment 😉) from friends, I posted a blog asking for name recommendations for this new business. The goal, to bring clean products to other families at a price that wouldn’t break the bank.  From there, it was home deliveries, local shops and Saturday markets packing babies & hope.  
     Now, 10 years later, we are still going strong with 8 kids, a new home base & a stand alone website, rocking the same purpose and passion.
