Where we are today...
Now, enjoying a healthier life (40 pounds lighter than in the photo on the left), we work together and home school our two boys in our off-grid home/studio in beautiful Craik, SK, Canada.
All of our hand-crafted, body care products are made off-grid using 100% wind / solar power and purified rain water. We use only the very best organic, sustainable, gluten free, non-gmo ingredients available. What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your mouth so we go the extra mile to know exactly where each ingredient comes from and are proud to say we even get to have tea with a few of our growers.
Labels often fall short of telling the full picture and in a world where everything is "green" and "organic". We prefer getting to know you, one to one rather than being on a store shelf. We don't have all the answers, but we are passionate to share what we know with you.
Come, get to know us. Download some of your favorite smoothy recipes or be empowered to try making some of your own body care products. Let's get to know each other on this journey of life. Let's make it the best it can be.

About us then...
It wasn't that long ago that our family enjoyed a typical North American diet - a slightly over weight, typical middle class family. Two kids, double income, a management position and let's not forget the greenest lawn on the block (thanks to the use of chemicals or fertilizers).
That all changed when major health issues hit our family square on and we could no longer ignore the elephant in the room. After losing a loved one to cancer at a very young age and struggling to care for our son who was born with a chronic condition, we needed to start looking at reducing chemicals and toxins in our home and our lives.
We began our journey of healthier food choices and a healthier overall lifestyle. During the next 6 years our journey took us from city living to acreage life. We began building our own house from healthy non-toxic natural materials, planting trees and spending a lot of time with nature.
During this journey we discovered that the shampoo we were using on our boys had several known cancer causing chemicals. We began looking earnestly to find a healthier choice. To our shock, regardless of the words "Organic", "Natural", "Green" or "Gentle", the same toxic chemicals kept showing up in the ingredient lists of every store bought product we purchased. Frustrated and fed up with mis-leading labels, we began making our own simple skin and body care products.
