The Beginning of Simply Rustic...

We have been discovering how to live more simply, naturally and environmentally friendly for about 12 years now. We are not perfect. We always try to feed our kids healthy and organic foods and our bath and beauty products, cleaning and laundry products are natural and/or organic and we are very conscious of our environment and the need to protect it and improve our use of it.

Then, almost four years ago our oldest daughter was diagnosed with a form of chronic leukemia…it was quite a scare for us, and one way of coping with all the unknowns was to research endlessly. It was through this that made us realize how much our environment has been altered, and how much harmful stuff is out there that is almost impossible to avoid. Essentially, for ourselves and our children we’ve tried to reduce as many of the harmful things we’re exposed to in our daily lives, as well as reducing our footprint on the world. We try to buy natural and/or organic foods, and we love our big garden. We don’t use chemicals and plant organic and heirloom plants and seeds.

One of the offshoots of this awareness was the desire to see what I could create on my own; simply, naturally, safely and eco-friendly. It was through this desire that Simply Rustic was born. The body butters and lip balms became the starting point because that is what we use most in our home. With a family of six, buying natural and/or organic products can be expensive. After some time to experiment and perfect, I had something I enjoyed making and loved to use. Before long I was sharing with family and friends and the logical next step was to try and share it with others who might be searching for a simple, healthy and all natural product that is both affordable and easy on the environment. Simply Rustic’s packaging is recyclable, even the labels are made from recycled material; most are 100%. Today, my creative wandering has expanded, and now there are body scrubs and lip scrubs too…who knows where I’ll go from here. My small bit of caring for my family and the environment. Oh, and my skin—it loves me for it!
