Established in 2018

It all started back in 2018 when my husband and I were juggling our hectic lives in Washington D.C. Our careers were exciting, but the stress was becoming overwhelming. The high-pressure atmosphere in DC made us feel disconnected, and we craved a deeper connection to our roots. So, we made a bold move: we decided to go back to Texas, switch careers, and reconnect with the land.

We had fond memories of our childhoods working on small farms, so we founded Healing Moon Farm and Ranch®—a place where we could grow not just crops, but also nurture our well-being. Our farm was full of life with Dorper sheep, llamas, and a variety of chickens. Even though our farm started as a weekend escape from our busy city lives, it quickly became our sanctuary.

Safe & Eco-Friendly

Around this time, I started suffering from severe skin allergies due to the synthetic chemicals in store-bought products. This led to the birth of Healing Moon Soapery®. Turning to nature, I discovered the soothing benefits of goat milk soap, which sparked my interest in natural remedies.

In mid-2019, a PTA fair at a local school gave us an unexpected boost. Our handmade soaps were a hit, and each sale brought stories of people finding relief and confidence through our products. It was a game-changer—we had stumbled upon something truly special.

In 2020, we decided to leave the outskirts of Dallas/Fort Worth for the peaceful Ouachita Mountain landscapes of Booneville, AR. But even in this serene setting, chronic stress still haunted us. My health took a severe turn in 2022 when I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, which led to chronic illness and autoimmunity, casting a shadow over our future.

A Leap of Faith

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; 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 non-toxic regimen, but a philosophy—one rooted in harmony with nature and a deep respect for our bodies and the environment.

With Love, Caitlin
