Gina Hickham, Founder
I grew up in a big Italian family… meals together on Sundays with all of the aunts, uncles, and cousins. The fridge was stocked with the kind of stuff that grows in soil. We ate really well! But, it wasn’t until I became a mom that the way I ate took on a whole new purpose.
I have three boys. My middle son has terrible allergies and asthma. I spent many nights, listening to him cough and worrying that it would continue at school. I was desperate to help him feel better.
In our home, we are not big on “medicines.” Rather, my time is spent learning about holistic alternatives that will improve my family’s wellness. I tried everything to help his cough, but could not find an alternative to the myriad of pharmaceutical products … so, I created one.
As soon as I discovered coconut oil, it seemed like the perfect natural remedy. Besides the obvious benefits … the way coconut oil naturally soothes and lubricates the throat. It is an effective antiviral, antibacterial agent with many healing properties that support a healthy immune function.
It all began in my kitchen. I started playing with DIY recipes for a coconut oil throat drop. The concept was great, but the version that I created, was definitely not convenient to have on hand if he had a coughing fit. After much research and development … and lots of trial and error, I was able to create an all organic drop of goodness that could be wrapped and saved!
The Crafted Coconut began with my Coconut Oil and Honey Drops. They are a pure alternative that truly is beneficial to your wellness. My hope is that these drops will help you feel better, and give you comfort knowing that they are created with the highest quality sustainable ingredients.
