Hi, I’m Desiree. I have a pretty amazing husband (just ask him) and I’m a mother to 3 children, a golden retriever, 2 bee colonies, and several chickens. Three years ago, I walked away from my desk job wearing the biggest smile I’ve ever worn, and now I’m living my dream job as a Stay at Home Mom, infusing my days with everything I’ve imagined!
I’m super passionate about health and all things natural. Unprocessed. Clean. Real. Why? Because I believe we were designed to live and function optimally off the planet and its resources, not synthetics. I make a conscious effort to avoid synthetic and unnatural additives in our products and foods. I won’t claim perfection, but I do strive to maintain a naturally inclined lifestyle for myself and my family.
I make my family’s body care products including lotion, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen, etc.. OK, I only make my own deodorant and toothpaste – but if my husband was on board…
I buy real food. I make real food. I love real food. By ‘real’ I mean earth provided and minimally processed. I really like to focus on organic or pastured meats & dairy, vegetables, fruits, nuts & legumes, maple syrup, raw honey, dates, and gluten free grains.
I’m also super interested in herbs and botanicals and enjoy crafting herbal applications and remedies. I have successfully completed Rosemary Gladstar’s online herbal study program titled The Science and Art of Herbalism. I have also completed The Herbal Academy’s Herbal Entrepreneur Course in hopes to start my own small home business. As an herbal enthusiast, I will use this blog to share great information and tutorials on using herbs and implementing nature into your life. Connecting to nature, reaping its energy, and sensing gratitude are things I consider essential for a happy and healthy life!
