How long has mama LIFE oils been around? And what inspired you to start it?
Mama LIFE started six years ago! My daughter is my inspiration and the reason why I started this business. She was born with a genetic mutation where she cannot process toxins efficiently. So my mommy brain had to scramble to figure out how to help her. I had to throw away every toxin in our house and DIY everything. The only solution was essential oils! Then cold and flu season started and I began making elderberry syrup. People began asking me for all of my products and boom! my business started!
