A Little More About Me

In 2015 on a whim, I started making vegan soaps in my kitchen and quickly fell in love with DIY skincare. The oils, butters, herbs and essences invited me deeper into more natural living in all areas of my life and eventually led me to start this blog in 2021. I’ve learned a lot from The Herbal Academy, School of Natural Skincare, Aromahead Institute and so many others. I’m happy to share what I’m learning and have you along on this journey to greener, more sustainable living!

  • In a past life, I worked as a marketing writer and blogged about quiet water kayaking, easy biking and nature. In 2014, I published Exploring Southern New Hampshire: History and Nature on Backroads and Quiet Waters.
  • My husband Doug and I live in beautiful seacoast New Hampshire with our two grown daughters and four grandchildren nearby. We love to sit on our front porch (usually with our morning coffee) and watch all the wildlife roaming on the conservation land near us.
