"It all began with diet and product changes a few years back. We did away with as many processed foods and chemicals as we could. And why not make some body products, as well as delicious and nutritious meals?"

What's your favorite item in the shop right now?
I love how well the new vapor rub is being received. And, of course, I think it's great. But our healing salve might always be my favorite thing! That lavender/vanilla makes me smell so yummy. And my skin is always so moisturized.
Any holiday collections / projects in the works?
I just created warmer melts. Got the recipe down to just beeswax, coconut oil, and essential oils! SO excited about that... and can't wait to announce them on social media!
What is your favorite part of running your own business?
Not sure if you know, but I run two businesses. I've also had a children's portrait studio for 12 years. Both keep me extremely busy, so being able to make my own schedule is awesome! But making a difference in people's lives is so fulfilling! I seriously have the best jobs!!!
What's the hardest part?
Hardest part? Bills, taxes, trying to make ends meet.
What's one place that everyone must visit in Texas?
I LOVE Texas! There are beautiful things to see no matter where you go. And we're having a great time exploring it. My favorite find lately was Hamilton Pool, and I'm dying to go back in the spring. But my all-time favorite spot is South Padre Island. We go every August, just before school starts. The beach conditions have always been beautiful. The weather is always gorgeous and every condo we've rented has rocked. This year, we got to see a sea turtle release.
