SKIN AND BONES
The journey begins in 1999 when Eric & Heidi befriended Native American medicine people, Ray & Ruby and they introduced Eric & Heidi to the power and benefits of therapeutic essential oils.
Somewhat reluctant to believe in their power, Heidi began experimenting, mixing,learning and embracing essential oils. She tested dozens of oils and blends, looking for the perfect moisturizer. First hand she experienced tremendous results with her mixtures. Slowly she began to abandon all the “miracle” synthetic products corporate America had convinced her to believe in and after countless recipes and numerous blends she found the perfect formula and scent to die for.
The luxurious mixture Heidi created was divine, so heavenly Eric deserted his longtime face “lotion” for her organic non-toxic elixir. Then friends and strangers began asking questions... why do you guys smell so great, why are you glowing, what is that scent?
Being entrepreneurs, Heidi & Eric looked at one another and thought, why not start a business. Heidi started to focus on the design and Eric the business aspects. It took months to just find the perfect bottle and get everything in place. Heidi thought, why be like every organic “granola” looking product on the market... why do we need eighteen different products... it has to be good for you and eco-friendly... can’t compromise design or quality. Everything was coming together, except what to call this new product.
The summer of 2009, a serendipitous weekend at a concert sealed destiny. While an acoustic set played of a song titled Skin & Bones, lighting struck. That’s it, it’s all about our skin and bones. Why not design and create products that touch people on every level of their skin and bones. The company and brand Skin & Bones was officially born.
