Pura Vida was born in 2001. I was born in 1976 (please don't do the math...) to hippie parents in Southern Vermont. They believed in growing their own ORGANIC food, and steered away from "conventional medicines". I grew up running away from the homeopathic remedies, the flower essence tinctures, and the nuts and berries that would "make me better". I believed i wanted real Tylonol, and immunizations like all the other kids.

When i had children of my own, i realized that we are entrusted with these PURE beings, these TOXIN-FREE humans, and to put just any ol' products either IN their bellies or on their bodies that wasn't necessary would be endangering their health. i began to research the ingredients in products in my constant search to keep mosquitoes at bay, or soothe a painful babies diaper rash.

I decided that unless i made these products myself, I would not feel right about using just anything.

My first products were Bug Dope~ A natural Bug Deterrant and Organic Calendula Salve, made with fresh Calendula flowers that i grew in my gardens.

Soon after that i opened a store in Putney Vermont, soon moving to a bigger location in Brattleboro, where our flagship store is still located today at 44 Harmony Place.

I have been blessed to travel all over selling my products, always improving and expanding my line. I use Organic products whenever possible, and make everything in small batches to keep freshness and quality priority #1.
