This all started out of my love for gardening. I have always been an active gardener when space permitted and when it didn't, I grew in pots in every window of my apartment.
Not that long ago, I moved out of a big city back to my hometown and now have plenty of space to grow again. And while making lotions and potions on a larger scale never crossed my mind, making them for friends and family as little gifts, did.
It started out with a salve for my brother-in-law based on a blog post from one of my favourite garden ladies. My brother-in-law suffers some skin conditions and was looking for something new to try - something a bit more natural. From there, I tried out some creams and even an ointment. My friends and family were my testers and before I knew it, they were encouraging me to try selling my creations. And so Terra Green was born.
Always trying new things, my line has expanded to include lip balms, bath salts, body scrubs, lotion bars, ointments and salves, milk baths, bath bombs and deodorants. In keeping with a natural approach for the products, I use ingredients grown in my chemical free gardens when possible. I also source my remaining ingredients from trusted suppliers.
Besides my love of gardening, I have been exploring the fields of aromatherapy, herbalism and permaculture.
I am also an active yogi and instructor. I teach several times a week at my local studio. I love working with people and hearing their stories. I love reading too. Haven't quite worked myself up to an e-reader yet cause I still LOVE the feel of a book between my hands. Maybe one day but probably not.
I'm a daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend. I love surrounding myself with friends and family. I don't know what I would do without them. While not playing in my gardens, you can usually find me working on one project or another with my mom. We currently make accessories for women and little ladies with our company Jojo & Lynnie.
Once day I hope to have a farm that I can bring all of my loves together in one place. xo
