Give AWAY: "The Hugging Trees" ALL Natural Personal Products

The BEST thing about having a blog and having some followers: the opportunity to introduce you to amazing people with amazing ideas and amazing passion. 

Today I'd like to introduce you to a young woman with vision and zeal! Plus one lucky winner is going to receive a little gift sampling of her all natural products -- just in time for the holidays!!! 

{Yes, I received my own sample pack of Kim's products, but my excitement comes from learning more of her efforts.}

Let me allow you to hear directly from Kim, the brains and heart behind "The Hugging Trees." She is the friend and neighbor of my daughter Sarah and I'm so happy to introduce you to her brilliance. 

I just LUV LUV LUV that today's woman is entrepreneurial and is making the difference in our world. With no further ado, let's get acquainted with Kim's hard work!  

"It all started last year when I made the decision to improve the health of my family by reading ingredient labels on everything I purchased to decrease the amount of chemicals we were absorbing on a daily basis. Over time, I slowly began to weed out and replace items in the household with food and products that had pure and natural ingredients. Our bodies thanked us for the change by reflecting a radiant healthy face, skin, hair and nails. 

Cancer is on the rise and our bodies are not equipped to absorb so many concentrated chemicals that we have surrounded ourselves with. I set out on a mission to create and offer natural personal care and grooming products to everyone at an affordable price. Pure high quality plant-based products do not have to be over-priced. My vision is to provide a holistic approach offering safe and pure products that are free from harsh chemicals, preservatives and toxins. To be gentle on the earth by using 100% Recyclable packaging. Using local ingredients to help support local farmer friends and small businesses as much as possible. To provide handcrafted products made in small batches saving you time and to avoid the mess of making it yourself at home. 

The Hugging Trees believes in giving back and paying forward to others. We give 10% of every purchase to charity to provide children and families with fresh drinking water. Every $1= 1 year of clean water per person. Water is Hope. Water is Love. Water is Life. 

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. ~Pablo Picasso

This business is my passion and my dream for you to enjoy. I encourage you to start reading labels. Be conscientious of your health. Love your body and the earth. I welcome all feedback and suggestions and would absolutely love to hear from you!" 

The winner of the Rafflecopter selection will receive a prize sampling of some of Kim's favorite products. 

I can tell you that I have been given several of her products, 
but my enthusiasm comes from knowing what Kim's mission is all about. 

The lip balm is my absolute favorite! 

Back to Debbie.... Wouldn't you LUV to win some of these thoughtful products? 
Wouldn't you LUV to support a mommy with a powerful idea? 

Please pin an image from this article. 
Enter to win by posting a comment below!
