The Founding of Healing Moon

Mar 18, 2024Healing Moon Farm and Ranch

Let me share our heartfelt journey with you. We're a small organic farm and natural soapery, deeply committed to crafting eco-friendly products. It all began back in 2018 when my husband and I were navigating our busy careers in Washington D.C. Despite the excitement of our careers, the stress was slowly engulfing us.

DC's competitive culture left us feeling disconnected, yearning for a deeper connection to our roots. So, we made a bold decision to return to Texas, change our careers and reconnect with the land. With cherished memories of childhood spent working the land, we founded Healing Moon—a sanctuary where we could cultivate not just crops but also our own well-being. Our farm was teeming with life, from Dorper sheep and llamas to a vibrant array of chickens and fragrant lavender.

Yet, amidst the hustle of our corporate careers, our farm remained a weekend retreat, a haven from the chaos of city living. It was during this time that I began experiencing severe skin allergies, reacting to the synthetic chemical-laden products lining store shelves. Turning to nature for reprieve, I discovered the gentle touch of goat milk soap, sparking a journey of exploration into natural remedies.

Midway through 2019, a chance encounter at a local school’s PTA fair unveiled the potential of our handmade soaps. With each bar sold, we witnessed stories of transformed skin and newfound confidence. It was a revelation—we had stumbled upon something truly special.

In 2020, seeking refuge from the urban grind, we traded the outskirts of Dallas/Fort Worth for the serene landscapes of Booneville, AR. But even amidst the tranquility, the specter of chronic stress lingered. My health took a devastating blow in 2022 when Lyme disease struck, leaving me battling chronic illness, autoimmunity and facing an uncertain future.

Faced with this adversity, I made a leap of faith, choosing to prioritize my well-being. I bid farewell to my data science career, embracing Healing Moon wholeheartedly. Determined to reclaim my health, I delved into holistic healing, expanding our product line to encompass a range of natural, toxin-free essentials.

Today, as I stand on the path to recovery, I find solace in the simple joys of crafting natural products and nurturing our farm. At Healing Moon, quality isn't just a buzzword—it's a way of life. Every ingredient, meticulously sourced, reflects our unwavering commitment to sustainability and ethical practices.

Our journey isn't just about skincare or farm fresh foods; it's about empowerment—the power to make conscious choices for our health and our planet. So, as you welcome our products into your home, know that you're not just embracing a skincare regimen or diet, but a philosophy—one rooted in harmony with nature and a deep respect for our bodies and the environment.
