1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
Kimberly and I wanted a sensible but down to earth name. We both believe in using what nature has given us. We jotted down some names, but “Nature’s All” just kept poking out at us.
2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
We make medicines out of herbs. Although we make medicine to help take away the symptoms of an illness, we also make medicine and work with a person to help heal them of the illness. We also have clients that we try out our medicine on before we put it up for sale. A lot of times we try it on ourselves first. We make capsules, teas, tinctures, lotions,butters, soaps, and shampoo. We do this all with good intention. We believe in the vibrations of feelings and emotion, so if one of us is sick or having a bad day, that person won’t touch the medicine. Sound weird? Ya, I know, it kind of does. But that is us. We run our business by spirit.
3. What is your favorite item at the store and why?
I don’t have a “Favorite”. But, I have suffered from Fibromyalgia for about 6 years now. The Wonder Butter gives instant relief, and the Fibromyalgia medicine that we make, that I take, relieves it within a couple of hours. I have seen wonderful results with all our medicines. But I think those 2 have to be My favorite. Along with the Turmeric and Valerian.
4. What inspires create your products?
The people that we come across inspire our products. We cannot stand to see people suffer. So if someone comes up to us with a problem, we spend hours researching and reading and taking our knowledge that we have learned and create a medicine for them that will help them.
5. Where can we find you?
Of course we are on Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/NaturesAll2, Also we are on Facebook,”Nature’s All”, and on Twitter. And you can always e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Do you have any coupons or discounts for us?
I’m sorry we do not have any coupons or discounts at this time. We sell our products hardly above what it costs us to make it. Hopefully in the future we can offer coupons and discounts.
7. What advice can you give for other sellers out there for their shop?
Just keep it real, and follow your spirit. If you sell and make your products with the thought of others, then spirit will lead you in the right direction.Now some fun facts about you
8. What is your Favorite Food?
You know, we are dieticians? And what we SHOULD say is raw fruits and vegetables. HAHA! But realistically, when we want to rebel, We get pizza or chocolate! Bad I know! But every once in a while doesn’t hurt.
9. Describe us one positive event in your life in your life that you felt was a miracle to you or that you knew the Universe was there watching over you.
Kimberly and I have been best friends since the day she moved into the school district when we were 15. As we grew older life and family became more important. And we would part ways for one reason or another, but we always came back to each other. After a failed marriage, I married my “knight in shining armor”. He was my world and I was his. He was the best man I’ve ever known. I would go to work and ALWAYS find love notes or little poems in my lunch. Or little surprises in the car when I left to go to work. He helped raise my children like they were his own. They loved and respected him more than there own father. Then he came down with cancer. He died 3 months before our 10th anniversary. Then 3 months later I lost our house that we bought and raised the children in. Cancer is such an expensive disease! I had to move back with my mother. I was lost down the rabbit hole with no light in sight. Then It was like I woke up one morning and decided at 45, I was going back to school.
Now for Kimberly, She had a rough childhood with an abusive, mentally ill mother, who would tell her time and again that she wasn’t worth the air that she breathed. And she always made sure Kimberly felt useless and no good. I won’t go into the gory details of the stuff that Kimberly had to endure. But it was bad. Then on to an abusive boyfriend that made her feel the same. After she got out of that relationship she met a man who didn’t beat her. He helped raise her 2 boys and adopted the oldest since the father was not in the picture. They had a good marriage also, they went everywhere together, and did everything together. Then after 17 years the marriage collapsed and she lost everything. She too was down that rabbit hole with no light in sight. Then I talked to her about going to school. We both have a connection to the earth and all she has to offer. So we did. We went and signed up to become Holistic Health Practitioners, and Master herbalists. The day we signed up was the day that we found ourselves climbing into the light. It just felt so right. It was a feeling that neither one of us could put into words. We just knew that the universe was clapping for us! We both have always felt we had the knowledge of our ancestors in our blood. And we found it! Now after 31 years of being best friends we have our own business together, and we have our own house together. We knew that we would be in our rocking chairs in a place together someday, but just not this soon. But that’s good! It’s not everyone that can say that at the age of 46 that they get to play everyday with their lifelong best friend.
10. What is your favorite vacation shop and why?
Sea Shell City in Florida, because the energy of the sea shells is so amazing! That and I was down there visiting my son.
11. Anything else you like to share about you?
Our motto is “back to the basics” that is what we do. We take what was in our world 100’s of years ago and use it to help todays people. We want to cure the disease not just mask the symptoms. We treat the whole person, body, mind, and spirit. And we get our knowledge and our inner spirit. We go with what the spirit tells us to go with for that person. And it’s funny how we are successful in that. We treat the person as a person, not just a customer or a dollar.
