My switch to the natural lifestyle came as an epiphany. We have horses at our house that never get sick. Actually, people would come up to us and ask 'how do you keep your horses so healthy?' None of our horses are on supplements, nor do they have shoes, nor need constant upkeep. Their coats are glossy and they are sound as can be. I believe that the health of our horses is directly related to us treating them like horses. Too often, you see these people who just baby their horses. They worry that by letting them out of their stall they will trip over a rock and bruise themselves. These horses are not grazing and constantly eating--as horses should--so when their diets are changed slightly, they colic.
I attribute the health of our horses to the natural lifestyle we provide them with. Our horses can withstand diet changes because they are used to the change in the nutritional content of their grass with the changing seasons. By being out, our horses have access to all sorts of plants and bushes in addition to ample pasture. If they eat a bush that makes them feel a little sick, they learn to not eat that bush again. It is this sort of learning that has allowed horses to survive for thousands of years.
After having such success with allowing my horses to live more naturally, it occurred to me that I could do the same for myself. I began to really examine anything I put into or onto my body. Solely by eating more natural foods I was able to lose over 30 pounds and have never felt so energized! By using natural products, I found myself feeling healthier overall. After feeling like I do now, I don't think that I could ever go back to a less natural lifestyle.

I stumbled upon natural products by accident back in 2011. I was originally trying to troubleshoot why my son kept developing a horrible rash. No matter what I tried, his skin would be raw behind his knees and in the creases of his arms; sometimes the sores would be so bad that they would bleed. After several doctor's appointments, steroid creams, and ointments, I was left feeling hopeless--nothing served as an answer to my child's mysterious skin condition.
But I wasn't ready to give up, if modern medicine couldn't give me the answer I was looking for, then I knew it was time to get back to the basics: natural medicine. I began researching everything and anything I could find about what we put on our bodies on a day-to-day basis. I was downright shocked. The majority of cosmetics lining the store shelves and in common use are overloaded with harsh chemicals, skin irritants, and neurotoxins. I found the latter particularly interesting as my son had recently been diagnosed with ADHD. I then resolved to remove every toxic chemical from my home--beginning with the laundry soap.
Sometimes I laugh to myself when I remember this moment. It was probably about 11:30 at night, and I went up to my husband and said 'I'll be right back; I have an idea!". He didn't question it, he just looked at me and said, 'Okay, drive safe'. I drove straight to the store and bought whatever items I thought I might need to start experimenting. This was the start of my venture into the natural products market. My new business was met with interest and encouragement--that's when I knew I was onto something.
