When Debbie was in college she lived just 2 hours away from her boyfriend, Jim (now husband) who went to UC Santa Cruz. This wonderful town on the north point of Monterey Bay is famous for its “granola” attitude and style. Debbie would visit every weekend. After she graduated, she moved there while Jim studied acupuncture. The town’s influence on lifestyle choices was unavoidable. They rode our bikes everywhere, enjoyed the wonderful farmer’s markets, had a bountiful garden and went for walks in the redwood forests often. This exposure to life focusing on nature, conservation, and daily physical activity gave Debbie a great appreciation for “alternative” choices. Choosing things in life that make for a healthier body
and planet are both rewarding and good for the soul.

This issue of Let’s Get Soapy focuses on natural ingredients we can use to add beauty and function to our creations. Enjoy!
