Nature and science have played equally important roles in my life as far back as I can remember. I was raised on a farm in Georgia where I spent my early life spellbound by the wonders of nature. Roaming through pine trees, fruit trees, and vegetable gardens by day and gazing at a night sky exploding with stars are gifts for which I will be eternally grateful. Oddly enough, my father ‘the farmer’ was also my father ‘the pharmacist!’ He ingrained in me the belief that, while nothing is more powerful than mother nature, science can help us to harness some of her magnificence.
With those deeply held beliefs in my back pocket, I grew up, left the farm and eventually found myself in law school. To say that I relied heavily on self-care to keep my sanity intact during those years would be an understatement. It’s also safe to say that practicing law full time led to my lifelong passion for a well-executed and relaxing beauty ritual! A few years into my law career, my curiosity to understand things like aromatherapy, integrative herbology, and cosmetic chemistry was so strong that I became a lawyer by day, and a formal student again - this time by night.
After having my sons, my commitment to holistic health, beauty, and wellness intensified. My husband, Chase, encouraged me to leave my law career behind and put my appreciation of nature and serious love of a good serum to use. In 2010, One Love Organics was born, driven by my dream for clean products that were effective, luxurious, elegant, and supportive of a healthy lifestyle.
The biggest lesson I have learned is to follow your joy. Have a relationship with it. Find what lights you up and take that path. When the path is difficult, be honest with yourself and practice self-care fiercely. Not only will you feel better, you’ll regain your joy much faster, too.
Why the name One Love Organics? My husband and I chose it as a daily reminder of what’s most important: to live and love well, and, like mother nature intended, love is the most powerful force on earth.
I am ABLE to live within the force of love.
And so are you.
