Natural Life Quest
For several years I had been researching and studying the effects of chemicals in our environment. I also took an interest in aromatherapy, herbs, and natural and organic products. I had always wanted to live better, and had always maintained a somewhat healthy lifestyle. This became increasingly more important to me when our teenage son was diagnosed with cancer in 2004. I continue to work on providing a greener and healthier living environment for my family.
I became quite discouraged by the cost of "organic and natural" labeled products when most of the products, upon reading the fine print on the label, were not completely natural at all. I decided to research recipes for skincare and started formulating basic skincare products on my own for myself and my family. I also started to experiment with the therapeutic benefits of essential oils(aromatherapy) and herbal tea infusions. As I realized the benefits were very real, my excitement grew. I started creating many products and became more intrigued with the art and science of creating soap.
A New Beginning
In the beginning of this experimentation, my son continued to go through chemotherapy treatments which required me to be home with him more often than not. Even though I still loved teaching music to young children and continued to do so, I realized that building a home-based business would allow me to be able to continue to work and take care of my son as well.
