Hi my name is Adriana, I´m a mom of two and I´m the founder of Homemade Simply Mom.
It wasn´t until I was pregnant with my second child in 2012, that I decided to start making real changes for a healthier life. Little by little I begun reading and learning everything related to natural alternatives, not only to improve our health but also to reduce our impact to the environment.
First thing I learned was how the chemicals present in our food and in every product that we use in a regular basis were affecting both, our health and the environment.
At that time, I used to suffer from allergies and migraines all the time, so I decided to replaced the conventional cleaning products with natural solutions. I also discovered about the power of essential oils. I first used them for cleaning, and then I learned how to make other natural healing recipes.
One thing led to another and I discovered what became a passion, I learnt how to make soaps using the cold process method. I fell in love with the first batch.
I focused on using only natural ingredients including organic herbs, minerals, clays, Shea butter and therapeutic grade essential oils. I also use eco-friendly packaging.
- In 2017 I make the switch to Palm Oil free soaps, here is why:
"According to the World Wildlife Fund, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour to make way for palm oil production. This large-scale deforestation is pushing many species to extinction, and findings show that if nothing changes species like the orangutan could become extinct in the wild within the next 5-10 years, and Sumatran tigers less than 3 years."
- My goal is to become 100% vegan at the end of 2017 (At this moment about 80% of our products are vegan)-
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
