We were two healthy, young women when both of our lives changed in a blink of an eye.
In 2015, Christina suddenly became very ill. After many misdiagnoses and long hospital stays, she was finally diagnosed with a multi-systemic disease in 2017. Refusing to live a life of pills and wheelchairs, she spent the following years studying natural remedies to help heal, alleviate symptoms and pull toxins from her body. Through her research and studying her Masters in Sustainability at Harvard, she was shocked to learn how toxic our world actually is, and therefore, our bodies.
During the same time, Julie survived a traumatic assault. Despite this, she was determined to feel safe again and not let this event control her life. She knew it was going to demand serious self-love rituals to heal and reconnect with herself.
For Christina, baths were medicinal and pain-relieving. For Julie, baths were a safe space where she could quiet her mind. During this time, we both realized the magical healing properties a bath could provide, and, let’s just say, we became obsessed. Once we replaced our painkillers and anti-anxiety medicine with natural bath remedies, we wanted to share our soaks and stories to help heal and inspire others.
With the support of each other, the strength within ourselves, and too many baths to count, we overcame our battles. We are back to living happy and healthy lives.
Through our journey, we learned a few things…
- You are stronger than you think.
- Your health is the most important thing you have.
- Your body is your temple, and it is your duty to take care of it.
With these lessons in mind, Detox Babe was born. Developing these products have helped face our fears – being a boss in our own lives and now of Detox Babe.
