Navigating Nature for Adventures at Home and on the Go with Southern Inspired Apothecary, Aromatherapy and Survival Products
Born and raised in Georgia, I grew up with nature as a friend and a foe. While exploring the great outdoors, ticks, bugs, sticks and mud found me, but I also found a way to patch my injuries and repair my skin in natural ways. Baking soda would relieve an itchy bug bite and a good salt scrub would clean up the messiest of knees. There was little need to visit the drugstore when all I needed was to look at the solutions mother nature provided.
Fast forward years later and I decided to launch Southern Belle Products. A place where my true southern belle spirit meets surviving whatever life throws our way. This is where skin care and aromatherapy bring the wonders of Mother Nature to you and where paracord and survival essentials bring you safely into the great outdoors. For me, it’s about bringing together the best of both worlds – loving my time relaxing at home and enjoying the moments outdoors.
Unlike most body product and home aromatherapy lines, my belief is less is in fact more. I say yes to all natural ingredients and no to artificial filers. A bath should be an organic experience, not full of synthetic sensory and skin irritants. A home should smell clean and natural, not overly stuffy and headache inducing. I search out the ingredients for my product lines with an eye towards what is closest to the Earth, not what is necessarily the cheapest or quickest to procure. I created the Apothecary and Aromatherapy lines with this in mind. Each item is made by hand, with you in mind.
When it comes to venturing outside, I want to experience it safely and I want that for you, too. With military veterans and first responders as loved ones, I know what it means to be prepared. Plus, I grew up on the idea that it’s better to have and not need than to need and not have – something I continue to believe in today. The Paracord Collection provides stylish, survival inspired elements – items readily available should you need a helping hand (or rope) in case of emergency. The “Oh Sh*t!” Collection keeps you fully equipped on the go; from Watertight Survival Boxes, Day Trip Survival Bags, First Aid Kits and Bug Out Bags with all the essentials to Everyday Carry Kits and Everyday Survival Bags for quick fixes and daily needs. Outfitting yourself is the best choice before venturing outside.
Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my Apothecary & Survival Blog, plus my company, Southern Belle Products! I’m looking forward to many great adventures to come – and yours, too!
