The Eden Body Family & Our Goats
Thank you so much for stopping by Eden Body Care!
Everyone has an interesting story behind who they are, how they became and their incredible journey along the way. We would like to share with you our story and help you get to know us better as hand crafters of your skincare products!
My husband Trey and I first found each other over a decade ago on a popular online game called World of Warcraft where I was physically located in Taiwan and he was in Las Vegas, NV. We ended up starting an online relationship; we would game at wee hours of the night, trying to spend as much time as we could together despite the time difference and his regular work hours. We would literally game all night at times and fall asleep with our headphones on, with each other on Skype's video chat!
I ended up going to school in Switzerland for Hotel Management and my friend had invited me to Germany for spring break. I invited my future husband at the time to meet me there and he agreed. He gathered all the money he had, got his very first passport, left the United States for the first time, flew to Hamburg, Germany and met me in person for the very first time.
After spring break, I went back to Switzerland and applied for an internship in New Hampshire to finish off the school year, just to be closer to him. During that time I traveled to Vegas to see him again and we both fell head over heels for each other.
The day before I had to leave, he asked if I wanted to go get married that very day and I agreed! We went to Downtown Vegas, got our marriage license and got married in a small courthouse!
Shortly after, we bought a house and started our family in the city of Las Vegas. Trey always had the passion to grow his own food and had dreamed of having his very own farm, I guess it was in his blood since his grandpa is a cattle rancher after all. We moved out to the country away from Vegas and started our humble homestead where we now raise goats, sheep, ducks and chickens, along with a few house pets including cats and frogs! We also have 2 beautiful livestock guardian dogs that help keep the coyotes away.
We started our fermented food journey as I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes with our 5th baby. Trey found out about kefir, that it helped with other people's diabetes and we started introducing it to our bodies a little at a time. Little did we know, this would cure my gestational diabetes and stabilized my numbers no matter what I ate, we even tested it to make sure it was nothing but the kefir that helped. It was amazing and we were sold.The nutritionist at the time couldn't figure out how my numbers stabilized and that was the start of our fermentation journey.
We've always loved natural, holistic, clean living so we started making our own kefir, kombucha and saurkraut. We were tired of buying junk soap from commercial stores and decided to make our own soap. Our soap cured our son's eczema, cured my rash issues and helped Trey with his dry, sensitive skin so much that we never went back to regular soap again.
We started Eden Body Care in hopes of providing everyone with quality body care products made without chemicals because we all deserve it.
Here are some of our goats!
We tend to them every single day with the help of our kiddos who help feed them, and we hand milk them to harvest liquid gold. Their milk feeds our family and we make our skincare with it, it's one of the most nourishing milks out there and we love to share the benefits of it with you.
This is Parfait Cookie Dough, another Nigerian Dwarf. She loves her grain and can't stand the rain (just like all goats really!)
This is our Snowy, our gentle giant who is a Saanen goat. She has been producing milk for about 7 years straight without breeding! She has a wonderful, sweet personality and is always a pleasure milking her!
