First thanks to Amanda Leesburg for having me at her event – such a great event with brands with wonderful stories. There were a lot of new organic, health, wellness, nutrition, non-GMO and non-toxic products for the spring and summer months. From a new at-home cupping massage kit and gourmet honey skincare to organic indigestion purse-candy, natural citric extract laundry detergent, new smoothie recipes and more – It was so cool to meet these inventors !
First thank you to I met the founder of BALM – an interesting skincare company. It is interesting how she is creating this collection with non – toxic ingredients – and that is raw – everything smells lovely – and feels great on skin. You do need to be aware of expiration dates — so that is something that you have to keep in mind –balm skincare is a raw product company offering a 4-step daily facial skincare regimen specifically designed without any synthetics, chemical stabilizers, or preservatives. After losing her mother to mesothelioma (an environmental cancer), founder Lindsey Moeller channeled her loss into this business, fueled by the passion to change the market. Balm stands as a leader in the raw product industry, as their skincare products have higher bioavailability than other natural products.

I really enjoyed having the time with Plant Therapy – this is an amazing company that is so innovative when it comes to essential oils – and we chatted a lot about relaxation in children and how oils can be too helpful. I shared some with my parents – my mom is in her late 70s and my dad is in his 80s and get headaches sometimes so these are so great to calm them and help – I shared my gift from Plant Therapy with them and they really loved it.
