I love getting my hands dirty playing with plants!
As an environmental educator, I teach about our interdependent relationship with nature and our connection to plants.
Plants have been in use for thousands of years. They are extraordinarily versatile with many useful properties; able to therapeutically affect our bodies and minds to soothe, stimulate, clean, calm, tone and heal as needed.
Beazer's Garden Body & Bath products are made with natural plant-based ingredients and pure organic essential oils. Our products are safe to use around your children, home and pets, free from harsh chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances.
Purpose Beyond Profits
I started creating these products in 2001 while I was a preschool teacher. As I cleaned my classroom one day I realized that the products we used in efforts to clean were actually toxin-filled and potentially harmful. I thought about the chemical-covered surfaces we played, eat and slept on and the toys that the toddlers would invariably put into their mouths when I wasn’t looking. So I decided to do something about it. My studies in herbology and essential oils helped me create a non-toxic cleaner from natural ingredients that quickly became popular among the other teachers. It left a great scent in the air instead of a chemical fog -- and it was effective!
And when my goddaughter got a common hair condition from her school, a simple recipe of plant-based essential oils worked quicker and most importantly, safer as compared to the expensive boxes of chemical, store-bought “fixes” we applied to ourselves over and over beforehand. I had a eureka moment and began creating safe alternatives like soaps and bath teas for my family and friends. As more people began to ask for items, I knew I had something.
Caring for green spaces over the last 17 years, I've worked as an educator and managed programs for wonderful eco-based organizations including, The New York Botanical Garden, Sustainable South Bronx, the Greystone Foundation, Hudson River Clearwater, CityParks Foundation, the Bronx River Alliance, and the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, to name a few. I’m a registered NYC Dept. of Education Business Vendor, a Master Composter, certified tree pruner, and installer of green roofs, rain gardens, and stormwater harvesting systems.
