Hello, I'm Deana!
I'm a mom to two dogs, 18 hens and one Rooster named Maurice. I'm an animal lover, entrepreneur, business owner, always struggling gardener, essential oil fanatic, fine artist and a lover of learning new things.
I live in Los Angeles, California outside the city with my partner John.
I'm a bit of an oddity compared to the rest of my generation, but I'm good with that. I believe in hard work, making your own way, personal responsibility, thinking for yourself, and not being afraid of getting your feet dirty.
Homesteading was my gateway to building a life I love. Once I realized I could create the life I had always wanted, I was hooked! What started with a passion for growing our own food and raising chickens turned into researching the products we were using in our home.
I found out the average person applies about 300 chemicals to their body everyday, and 80 of them are before breakfast. Most are from four sources: soap, makeup, shampoo and hair care products. and the biggest sources in homes are dryer sheets, fabric softener, air freshener plug-ins, and candles. Others are bright blue dish soap, kitchen counter cleaners, and processed foods. Health and safety data only exists for the 15 percent of all the chemicals out there, even though so many are known to cause asthma or endocrine disruptions. Yikes!
I want to tell you there is another way. Please scroll down below my story and click on one of my videos or read one of my blog posts, and let me know if you are ready to change the way you live your life.
So, if you stumbled upon my blog looking for advice on building your own organic garden, raising chickens or wanting to know more about essential oils, then you're in the right place. I have devoted the last 18 years learning and creating the best organic food on the planet.
