About Tabula Rasa
Tabula Rasa (pronounced tab-You-La Ras-a) In Latin, means clean slate, or empty tablet. Tabula Rasa was formed during a time of great change in my life. After a lot of endings this was a new beginning, as is your body after each bath or shower.
After learning that nearly all of my favorite products contained many toxic chemicals and harmful additives that your body cannot process and cleanse itself of, I started researching natural alternatives. My grandmother always taught us that if it grows in the ground, chances are that there is a good use for it. The planet has no accidental occupants. Stealing a bit of her resourcefulness and some stubbornness I started dabbling with what was at first a hobby.
I had learned some of the very basic soap making techniques and from there my hobby sort of took on a life of its own. As I got compliments on how my skin looked or how shiny my hair was or how good I smelled, I was asked what I used. When I told people I made the lotion, or shampoo I was asked if I could make some for them.
I started selling things at work and word of mouth grew big enough that I thought it may be a good time to try an on line business.
I am committed to making natural products with as many organic ingredients as possible. I also strongly believe that if you work , you should earn a livable wage so all of my items are fair trade as well. Even though some of the oils and ingredients have to be imported, I buy mainly from distributors in the USA.
I hope you enjoy.
