In 2014 I started a small Etsy shop selling handmade goods inspired by holiday gifts crafted for friends and family. With a name influenced by my children, BitsiBi, flourished selling soaps and recently introduced additional skincare products. As I began to speak to more people using my handmade products, I began to enjoy sharing my knowledge of natural handcrafted goods with them. They, in turn, began to share their experiences with me and the thought of alō Goods began.
alō [Latin] to feed, nourish, support, sustain, maintain
alō Goods is a brand focused on nourishing your mind, body, & spirit through the enjoyment of natural handcrafted products.
- Nourishing your mind by sharing honest information about the products you put on your body, and easing worries about introducing chemicals through your skin.
- Nourishing your body with natural products to from the outside in
- Nourishing your spirit with goods that are handcrafted from quality ingredients…. and crafted by a real person, with care for you
Dedicated to All Natural Ingredients
Natural has always been an important aspect of my life, how I raised my children and a passion I share with my sister. I am active in the natural soap making community and dedicated to creating all natural skincare products.
At alō Goods, natural means derived from nature and excludes man-made replications (such as mica colorants) and aroma replicas (such as fragrance oils). Nature has provided powerful elements to clean and nourish our bodies and we can choose to be natural by embracing them. By harvesting from my pesticide-free home garden and sourcing sustainable options—I hope to bring a bit of nurture through nature into your home.
alō Goods Signature Blends
With the new brand, I am also introducing three new signature blends of products: Pure, Calm, and Peppy (with more planned for 2017!). Each product line including skincare and soaps will be available in all signature blends.
The Pure signature blend line features products crafted for individuals with sensitive skin, and seek a natural product free from added fragrances.
The Calm signature blend line includes a lavender base with aromas to calm your mind and focus your spirit.
The Peppy signature blend line features an orange and mint base with aromas to energize your spirit and stimulate your mind.
Thank you for nourishing and supporting me through my journey.
I would like to express my gratitude to my sister for her unending support and encouragement with this endeavor, to my dear friend Alexis for her companionship and motivation, to all of my friends and family who have allowed me to craft for them over the years, and to each and every one of you who have used my products and shared your stories with me.
Here’s to a nourished New Year!
