Once upon a time, there were two bored stay at home Mom's named Ashley and Katie. They thought it would be a hoot to make a batch of lip balms and try selling them to their family and friends. Soon, the lip balms were gone but the demand was not. A few more batches were made and the Mamas thought it might be fun to add hand sanitizer and vapor rub to the lineup. Within two hours every product they had, sold out. Shocked and amazed, the girls started cooking like crazy. They found themselves beginning and running an accidental business, learning as they went, while remaining faithful to their mission. The mission to inform people about the chemicals in the crap they are using. This is the driving force behind Crunchy Mamas. After five fun, growing years, Ashley decided that she needed to move on and raise her 4 boys and dote on her husband. Katie made the difficult decision to keep this business going after realizing she just couldn't let it go. A fire was relit inside of her.
The next Chapter...
I'm Katie! Owner, operator, and maker of all the goodness! Who would have ever thought that a former Probation Officer, turned stay at home mother, would ever find herself as an entrepreneur! The idea still shocks me honestly and I am so thankful for the growth that this business has pushed me towards. When I first started making my own products at home, it came from a place of necessity. I began to educate myself on all of the chemicals and harmful ingredients in so many products out there. I've always considered myself a self learner and when I find a passion, I seek it out with diligence. That is how I grew my knowledge of essential oils and the benefits that I wanted myself and family to get out of them.
Little by little, day by day, book by book, and hours upon hours of research, I found my footing. I began experimenting with oils and products that all came from a direct need in my own family. Fast forward, and today, I make them for you! Crunchy Mamas has stayed solid and true to the original mission of providing healthy, safe, effective, useful products with a purpose! I am happy that you're here and thank you for supporting me, this business, and my family!
