hey there,

I'm Lauren!

My family and I live on a small farm just outside of Austin, Texas. I have been organic gardening and creating a non-toxic home for the past 10 years, and we are working towards having a self-sustaining, zero waste, and horse-powered farm. I love working with others as they work on their dreams of living healthy, happy lives through homesteading, gardening, and eco-friendly practices.

Your skin is your body's largest organ, and it should be treated with love and care. I created my own organic Body Butter that I have shared with friends and family for years. They love it so much that I decided to make it available to everyone! Order your jar today to find out why it is so much better than store bought lotions.
