GET WELL, STAY WELL
I became a vegetable farmer because I believe that rural communities like mine deserve access to nourishing food from a farmer that they know and trust. We shouldn't have to travel to the city or spend a fortune in order to feed our families well.
Eating real food is the basis for good health and lifelong wellness. But did you know that on average, we come into contact with hundreds of different chemical toxins every day through cosmetics, soaps, perfumes, room fresheners, and household cleaners? If eating well is the foundation for wellness, then reducing our exposure to toxins is the mortar that holds it all together.
What we put in and on our bodies matters. Each time we eat, apply makeup, freshen the living room, or tuck our kids into their detergent-smelling sheets we are making a choice either to nourish our bodies or to strain them under a load of toxic chemicals.
SMALL STEPS, BIG CHANGES
I researched for months before I decided to invest in a starter collection of essential oils from Young Living. With just these 10 oils, I replaced my skin care products, my household cleaners, my beloved air fresheners and candles, and even my favorite hand sanitizer. I was so skeptical - we're all a little leery of weird MLM companies, right?
No worries! Young Living is the coolest company, y'all. They own all of their own farms and they are invested in the entire process of creating the finished products; from choosing the seeds, to harvesting the plants, to sealing up the bottles, Young Living oversees every step of creation. You can read their promise to families here. They're super transparent about their business, too. You can visit any of their farms and ask questions, take pictures, and see the process for yourself.
As someone who also farms a product that I will be handing off to families that I care about, I appreciate Young Living's commitment to safety, purity, and education for everyone who becomes a customer. I run my own business on those same principles.
