Teacher. Coach. Momboss.
Hi, I’m Krissie
When I first learned that harmful chemicals, banned in Europe, are plentiful and common in the products I was using every day, something clicked inside me. As I sat in a conference for health teachers in the Fall of 2015, learning that products I’d been using on myself for over 35 years and my son since he was in my belly, were linked with cancer, dementia, infertility and pretty much every other disease and disorder on the rise in America, I was horrified.
I was truly overwhelmed
I felt mad, sad, guilty, and emotional all at the same time. I had just been through my first of several miscarriages and not one doctor or expert had known enough about this issue to dig a little deeper and check to see if I knew how to choose safe options. I mean, I’m a HEALTH teacher, an educated person, and I was completely shocked to learn no agency was regulating the personal care products I’d been smothering all over my body for decades!
I’ll never know
…to what extent my personal care products impacted my ability to have a family but I do believe something my dad always said: “The best we can do is the best we can do.” It IS a piece of the puzzle and, actually a very empowering place to start. Once you know your tools, you can decide - almost 100% - what goes onto your skin (and INTO your bloodstream). The truth is, many times I wanted to burry my head in the sand, but once I knew about these toxins, I couldn’t unlearn.
I jumped head first into looking for a new way
I searched and searched for resources and organizations I could turn to for buying guidelines. I took courses, read books, researched the history of our personal care industry, listened to audiobooks… I sought out companies who were making non toxic products - ones I knew I could trust across the board to have integrity and be transparent in their ingredients and processes. I intentionally set priorities and limits on what I was willing to buy for my home. I learned how to actually break my family’s risk factors into data that was measurable and within my control and I set about decreasing our “body burden”.
We are healthier than ever before
I struggle less with weight and brain fog.
My son and hubby are thriving. (I probably have the only 5 year old on the planet who knows what sunscreens to avoid and asks me to read the label on soap in public bathrooms.)
I buy products with complete confidence.
I’m building a business that empowers others, brings them powerful health changes, positively impacts future generations and the environment!
I can help you feel this change as well
If you are the person in your home who decides what products you’ll bring into it, you have a VERY important role. It may, on most days be thankless. I mean, not often do you get a “thank you” for remembering to buy toilet paper or toothpaste but what it comes to WHICH products you select, you can have a significant say in the overall wellness of your entire family.
If you identify with one of these, I can help
You know about the toxins in home products and are wanting to “clean” up your body before trying to get pregnant
You and a partner have been trying to get pregnant for a while and are looking at ways you can have more control over your fertility and overall health
You are currently pregnant and want to make sure you’re doing everything within your power to make sure your babe is born with a truly fresh start at a healthy life
You already have children and, as a busy mom, could use some help saving time and money while selecting products you know will be safe for your growing family
