I’m Marisa, and here’s a bit about me
I’m a wife to an amazing, supportive husband.
I’m a mom to three beautiful children, all born at home.
I am passionate about taking good care of our bodies and our earth. Since childhood I’ve had an immense love for everything natural, organic, and lovingly handmade. Spending time on a small, family run organic farm, as well as my own family’s homesteading adventures, has taught me so much about love for the land, the plants and animals all around us, and good stewardship with the gifts they provide.
I didn’t always enjoy vibrant good health like I do now. In my late teens and early twenties, I struggled with fatigue, awful headaches, and horrible cystic acne. Through nutrient-dense foods and traditional healing wisdom, I was able to heal from all those issues, and gain excellent health. That journey taught me so much. The main resource on my healing journey was the GAPS diet. It totally changed my life, and I love sharing my experience with it.
I’m a researcher. I don’t tend to just take the common opinion and go with it. I prefer to dig deeper, and find evidence-based alternatives that work better. That’s what guides me when it comes to my family’s health, nutrition, and the products we use on our bodies and in our home.
What I’m Into
My mission is to empower you with traditional wisdom to impact your own and your family’s health with nourishing food, effective natural remedies, and DIY skincare and home products, while inspiring you to live a beautiful, sustainable lifestyle.
I am obsessed with creating the absolute best organic skincare, and one of my all-time favorite ingredients is grass fed tallow.
Joel Salatin and Weston A. Price are some of my heroes.
We are currently doing urban homesteading, which involves growing as much of our food we possibility can on our quarter acre lot in town, including fresh eggs, vegetables, and herbs. We also raise organic, pasture fed broiler chickens on some land just south of town. Someday we hope to have some acreage of our own, along with more chickens, a bigger garden, and maybe even a dairy cow!
I enjoy cooking, and but I also believe that whole food, from scratch recipes don’t have to be a lot of work or take a lot of time in order to be absolutely nutritious and delicious.
Although I grew up in the pacific northwest, I was born in Colorado and moved back when I married my husband. We love all the sunshine here!
