Meet the Maker
My husband, son, and I live in the beautiful Central Valley of California. We have our own little slice of a heaven on our lovely 2 acre farm - where we raise sheep, pigs and chickens, have a vegetable, herb and flower gardens, grow lots of fruit trees, collect our fresh eggs every morning and are just working to live a more sustainable life, honoring the seasons.
Currently, we don't have a store front but I do have a separate workspace near our home where I create my products. I host occasional events and OPEN SHOP HOURS. Visit my Event Page here for upcoming shop hours, and check out this blog post to see what kind of magical gatherings we've had in the past!
When I started learning more about plant and flower medicine, herbal health & natural skin and body care, I dove in head first! After months of concocting, researching, reading, testing (on friends/family) and of course using all this myself - I realized that I had found something so beautiful & beneficial that I could share with others; something I could make with my own hands. I wanted to share the purity, joy, simplicity, and beauty of what our earth has given us to use on our bodies and in our day to day lives.
Some of the herbs and flowers I use in my products are grown naturally and sustainably right here on our farm. Visit our What We Grow page to see a full list & photos. I use my products on my face & body on a daily basis, as well as on my son and my husband, and am always researching, concocting, trying new recipes, sampling products, and sharing what I'm finding with the people I love around me.
After 4 years of making many, many different skin care products for all ages, skin types and people, I decided to downsize my line to just my healing lip balms and seasonal healing oils. Along with this business, we sell vegetables grown here in a CSA program for our community; so running both businesses was getting to be too much, as well as prioritizing my family.
I know many people have used both of my lip balms for many years, and didn't want to take that away from them, so instead of completely giving up Sunkissed Botanics, I figured this would be a manageable trade.You can learn more about our farm at nourishfarmturlock.com.
When you use only all natural ingredients on your face and body, you can feel and see the difference. When you know everything you're putting on your skin comes from the earth, you feel closer to nature and closer to your real self.
