The story of how Naad Naturals came to be a small business.
I was first introduced to essential oil’s in 2000, I immediately fell in love with them. Over the years I used them for more and more things anywhere from eucalyptus and honey for a sore throat, peppermint oil for an upset stomach, lavender for headaches or patchouli just to wear as a perfume! I was health and earth-conscious and wanted to eliminate unnecessary chemicals going into my body and being used in my home so essential oils just made sense.
In 2015 I was in yet another job that was unfulfilling. I found myself again working to just pay bills, there was never enough extra money to afford a real vacation. I knew deep down the corporate world just wasn’t for me anymore. I wanted to do something that would make me feel like I was contributing to the earth and I wanted to align more with one of my favorite quotes “be the change you wish to see in the world”.
So, I took a leap of faith, sold everything I owned (kept a few things like my iron skillet, my bicycle, and some bare necessities). I packed up my two dogs Shanti and Simon and off we went to volunteer on an organic farm!
My dogs Shanti & Simon along with everything I owned!
Our travels took us from Bozeman, Montana to Salmon, Idaho and eventually to Yellowstone National Park! It was however in Salmon Idaho where I was introduced to true homesteading! The dogs and I were hosted by an amazing couple in their home nestled at the base of the Bitterroot Mountain range. The deer were friendly, the dog was brave and my hair, well it got longer! I was desperately in need of my hair paste to fix this mess!
Well if you can image funds were tight and so my host the homesteader that she was said "let’s make some!" She had every necessary ingredient to duplicate my favorite paste to the best of our ability! It turned out as quite the usable product!
Suddenly I was whipping up massage oils, soaps, and lip balms and sending them back home to family and friends! I was hooked! My time there ended and due to a sick father, my travels also ended. I came back to Omaha, Nebraska in 2016 and started selling essential oil based products at various farmers markets! Over the next 3 years, I increased my product line and gained confidence from all wonderful feedback I was getting from my customers! I was using social media like a maniac sharing where I was and what I was selling.
One day a friend from Kansas City posted on my FB thread asking if I had a website, another friend posted if you need help with a website let me know. And so here we are 3 months later launching my product line to the world! Staring my very own company Naad Naturals. It finally feels good and it fits! So my journey continues and I couldn’t be more grateful.
“Believe to receive”
