Raise your hand if you’re like me and come from a small town out in the boonies.
You know, the kind of small towns that you see in the movies, with old men sitting on rocking chairs on the front porch. Banjos playing in the background. Outsiders not welcome.
For those of you who aren’t from small towns like this, here’s a little piece of information that you may not know: It’s really hard to find the good stuff around here. The stores aren’t stocking fair trade, organic coffee beans roasted in small batches and ghee that is carefully sourced from butter that comes from cows that are monitored to avoid GMO’s. Shampoo and conditioner are bought at the dollar store, and there’s not really a high demand for beauty supply items that are sulfate free.
So when you’re trying to live a green lifestyle and you hear that there is a store opening locally that sells organic beauty supplies and offers eco-friendly spa services, you’d best get on over there and check it out.
That’s what I did this past weekend at the Well & Good Studio in Leesburg Virginia. The organic Beauty Boutique is run by Lauri Bosserman, a certified holistic health coach and detox cleanse specialist.
The sign reads, “We exercise and eat our greens – But we don’t stop there – We feed our skin beautiful ingredients that it can use.”
You can book an appointment to get a professional makeup consult. They source the healthiest, most effective – and when possible – local and organic products for skin, hair, and nails.
In an area like mine, it’s really important that we take the time to thank and support business owners who are providing these alternative products. Lauri offers customized wellness packages, including coaching, massages and Reiki, private parties, juice cleansing. You can read all about it on their website.
