Located in scenic southeastern Pennsylvania, Meadow Muffin Gardens is a home based business which progressed from a hobby to quite the education. I took my interest in "green" living and organic gardening and developed that passion by seeking out methods for healthier personal and family care.
Systemic Lupus, an autoimmune disorder, has been a part of my entire adult life. Managing a chronic condition has taken our family down a different path than the usual route with conventional medicine. We sought out gentler, alternative methods and products rather than rely soley on pharmaceuticals.
A nickname became the name for my little business. Meadow Muffin Gardens is a source for natural and affordable personal care products and remedies to help you feel nurtured and spiritually in tune with your body. Handmade with a touch of the love and wisdom from past generations. Knowledge of what is in your products is the start to taking back control as a consumer.
Beauty and better health shouldn't be about trying to create an image or cover up "flaws" using synthetic imitations or potentially toxic products encouraged by commercial hype. Utilizing plants that grow right out the back door can heighten your awareness of a partnership with nature. The plant in entirety is much more beneficial than selected components in the lab.
The education continued with the realization that a weed is just a plant for which people haven't a use or is growing out of place.
A little research into human history soon brought to light how quickly people forget with each passing generation what was once vital information for survival. Before our age of technological advancement the use of plants was a part of everyday life for food, clothing, medicine, cosmetics, perfumes and textiles. The interdependence between plants, insects and animals in our environment makes one realize how harmful human indifference can be. To be oblivious to the role each part of our creation serves is detrimental for ourselves and the earth we depend on for our own survival.
Everything serves a purpose in the life cycle. We can be companions to all of God's creation. We must learn to be leavers rather than takers from this world we were given stewardship. Come join us as we seek health and fulfillment while treading lightly upon the chosen path each of us was given.
