Hi! I am Tarah a.k.a Juice! Juice has been my nickname for as long as I can remember. I am a wife and mother of three amazing kids that keep me busy, inspired, and determined to live a life with joy, adventure and unconditional love. I LOVE the beach! I am a total water girl!
I was born into a loving but very busy hardworking family. My parents always worked, and in addition owned multiple businesses with their goal to provide the best life possible for us. I was taught to work hard at a young age and am grateful for all that I learned. It's no wonder today that my parents say that I don't do anything in moderation!
I would call myself a student of life, studying all things that interest me. Once I was free to go out into the world on my own, I knew I needed to find my own path. I studied and practiced as a registered massage therapist, and soon after got married and built our first house. I designed and did the majority of the work with the guidance of my father who had a home renovation company. I was proud of what I achieved and was capable of, this sparked my entrepreneurial bug.
At the age of 21, I found an old dated salon in a great location and decided to take on the project and transform it into a modern day salon and spa. I spent the next few years learning about business and how to grow and market it. My husband had studied business management in university, which helped make it a successful venture. This is where my journey of holistic living and how natural methods were helping so many of my clients began.
I had always struggled with "female complications", I was diagnosed with endometriosis and PCOS at the age of 18. So during this business venture, and a few minor surgeries it was suggested if I wanted to have children, it would be best to get started. I always knew I wanted kids so it was time to make it happen! After many months of no luck, I tried fertility meds, had no luck, and was then introduced to a naturopathic doctor, changed my diet, took supplements and within a month was pregnant with twin girls!
I am a creative and visual person, and after selling the business to be home with my babies I got into multiple renovation projects, (add in my son) then went back to school to study interior design, and more recently photography.
I love to cook! As far back as I remember I have spent many years in the kitchen exploring my creativity. Not to long ago, I had a major "health hiccup", I dove into seeking truth, answers, direction, and guidance which embarked a self discovery journey to dive deep into how to live naturally and holistically. I love to re-create classic family recipes and new ones from a more natural, whole foods approach.
Through this journey Essential Oils became a huge part of my life! My kids, husband and myself use them on a daily basis. Whether for emotional wellbeing, natural immune support, in recipes, and overall wellness, these natural plant extracts are magical.
