- Our Story
I founded Peace and Carrots after an "Ah Ha" Moment
I realized I seriously needed to revamp my life (we all need remodeling from time to time) I learned one of the essentials of health, that I could control... Was Eliminating Toxins!
I began reading every label… Label After label amazed me with many toxic and harsh ingredients, many with known ties to cancer and other health related problems. (A great learning resource is http://www.ewg.org)
Eliminating Toxins from my family’s lives and their side effects became a mission. One thing I could easily grab hold of and remedy was what kind of chemicals we put on our bodies, what we washed our clothes with and what we used to clean our home.
After understanding how all the chemicals, detergents and preservatives affect us (60% of what we touch can be absorbed into our skin) and that so much is totally unregulated I found a passion to set out and rid our lives and household of all the UCK!
I researched and researched and learned how using all natural products, organics, essential oils, herbs and botanical extracts can nourish and heal our skin. I learned how to make nourishing cold pressed soaps at first and then other skin loving products …..my family and friends went nuts over them.
Imagine my surprise, when I discovered how much better these handmade products were. I’ve studied intensely about the therapeutic properties of natural and organic oils, exotic butters, botanical extracts, essential oils and other beneficial ingredients that could be incorporated, to bring nourishment and healing to our bodies. It launched me on a quest for the best ingredients possible to create a growing line of Health and Wellness bath and body products.
First it was for my family, now I am passionate and on a mission, to educate others and free people from detergents, harsh chemical products and side effects that they can harm them, teaching them the benefits of being All Natural!
Voila! In 2012, Peace and Carrots was born and the quest to… “Nourish Your Skin- Love Your Body!”
Thanks for your interest and spending time with Peace and Carrots!
