LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER
Oh Hey Ladies,
Here is a bit about my journey and why I created Moon + Leaf.
I spent 10 years climbing the career ladder, from a high tech company, to a big consulting firm, to getting my MBA, then to working for the non-profit of my dreams, traveling the world. But at every job, whether it was mission-driven or not, no matter the accolades or levels of success, my body would start to fritz out.
Culturally, we use the term “burn-out” but this felt so much deeper than that.
I would get constant colds, migraines, heart palpitations in the night. My tear ducts stopped working causing constant eye irritation. Digestive problems. Tendonitis in my left arm. All of this while avidly practicing yoga and eating super healthy!
And honestly, a few months before I quit each job, I would stop getting my period.
Deep down there was a voice saying, “THERE IS A DIFFERENT WAY.”
It was telling me that life was not supposed to feel like an endless, white-knuckled marathon.
That we are here to experience joy, creativity, passion, fulfillment.
My body was desperately trying to send me the message that I didn’t want to hear because it was too scary. Because it meant that I would have to leave everything that I knew. I would have to leave the security of a steady paycheck and the sense of self-worth that I attached to work.
The voice was saying that it is my job to create this better way. To create the reality that my soul is so desperately wanting to live in.
This was the inception of Moon + Leaf.
A message to share through this company (one that I am still learning for myself):
It is time for women to choose to love, honor, and listen to our bodies.
And hemp-derived products that create the opportunity for all women to embody this message by:
- Creating a ritualistic pause to connect with our bodies.
- Providing the opportunity to choose self-love.
- Sending a breath of relief into some of our most painful moments of every month - our periods. (The time when our bodies are speaking so loudly and, in our fast-paced culture, the time when we reach for the extra painkiller and cup of coffee.)
What if instead of fighting against our bodies, we befriended them? What if our periods weren’t shameful and hidden but an ally that connects us to our health and creative power?
This is the world I am interested in creating. And I hope that you, sister, are down to join me.
With Love and Respect,
