How it began...
Nature IS Health began with THIS website but as a blog. Co-owner Samantha Guyatt BPHE, CNP- me, here writing, created this haven as a place to gather my ideas learned in nutrition school and along the journey to my bachelors in physical education. Navigating varsity athletics but driven by an exploratory lifestyle definitely resulted in some tumbles along the way.
A passion for health and wellness + working in the industry since university, inspired me to begin making my own skincare, haircare and various home necessities from scratch- recording my experiences along the way on this website.
After years of practice, a mini business had formed via word of mouth through family and friends. But it was only once I met Brian, a talented chef and loving business partner, that Nature IS Health was born.
Together we have created our signature and handmade soap line, a unique line of 'real' soap, made with local pasture-raised animal fat (up-cycled and otherwise waste) from the local butcher shoppe. This raises eyebrows of many, but truly is a traditional way of making soap to complete the cycle and nourish the body with local ingredients. More about this story here.
Today the Nature IS Health product line also includes herbal infused oils, lip balms, teas and various products to support a natural routine.
