From Our Family To Yours
Veronica Garza, Co-Founder and President
When Veronica was a teenager, she was diagnosed with multiple debilitating autoimmune conditions that almost ruined her life. She was fatigued, overweight, and depressed. But with her family’s love and support, she was able to overcome these major health challenges. Together, their family of seven (siete!) learned about the healing powers of food. Now, they offer healthier options to your traditional Mexican cuisine, such as grain-free tortillas. Siete Family Foods is a mission-based company, and they’re passionate about making and sharing real food, gathering together in an authentic community, and advocating for healthier lifestyles among Latino families.

True Bone Broth, Traditionally Made
Ingredient Obsessed Women’s Wellness
The idea to start Winged came in 2017 after plant medicine saved Jess from a dark place. She went through some major life changes that cause a severe battle with anxiety. After she received a recommendation of CBD and adaptogens, she started to feel herself again. She wanted to know more, so she started researching. Women were twice as likely to struggle from depression, insomnia and anxiety as men. She chatted with many women and noticed the common theme that this was true among the majority – which is where the idea of Winged began to form. She wanted to share the relief she felt with other women and set out to build a product line specifically formulated for women. Winged’s mission is to help women feel good.

THE HONEY POT CO
Plant-derived feminine care — from Bea’s kitchen to your hands
“If you’re here because your honeypot is unhappy, I’ve been there. The whole reason I started The Honey Pot Co was because I was suffering from bacterial vaginosis for months and couldn’t get relief. One night, an ancestor visited me in a dream and gifted me with a vision to heal myself. With her help, I created the Honey Pot Co to solve for what other brands wouldn’t, using the power of herbs.” BEA DIXON, FOUNDER OF THE HONEY POT CO
It All Started With Soap
Founder, Kelly Perkins, started making soap in the ’90s with a simple goal: avoiding toxic ingredients. “I don’t like to look at a label and have to go to Google to see what it is. That makes me think it’s not something I want to put on my body. I want to be able to say, olive oil, I know what that is!” (Passport Magazine) Kelly decided to make her own soap after reading up about soapmaking and made her first batch in 1994. She fell in love with the process and eventually started selling! Check out the full details here.
