Celebrating women today on International Women’s Day, and everyday, by supporting some of our favorite women-owned businesses!
Where your purchase has a purpose
There is so much purpose and intention behind this business, Lisa started Mustard Seed Marketplace born out of an idea to only sell fair-trade, sustainable, give-back, or locally made products. She is a woman on a mission to help change the world and her business is doing just that. A favorite product from her shop are these Bel Koz Beaded Bracelets that come with a free charm. These bracelets are created by artisans in Haiti from the clay that lives there. By purchasing this bracelet, you are helping to provide a better life for women and their children in Haiti. Bonus: they are beautiful and make for perfect gifts!

Ambre Blends is a woman-owned business based in Indianapolis, IN. All of their high quality organic body products are handmade with 100% pure and natural vegan ingredients. I fell in love with Ambre Essence after smelling the oil on several of the girls on the LIY Team [seriously, one whiff and I was hooked]! I started small for my first purchase with the 10mL oil pump bottle and have been a fan ever since. The larger 30mL bottle is a great option for us repeat customers refilling the pump bottle. I couldn’t get enough and splurged on the body cream [2oz // 8oz] to add to the collection too! It’s a light and clean yet woody fragrance, but you can read more about that and find the official description here.

Oh Soup of Success, how much we care about you. A year or two ago, some LIY team members were asked to sit on the advisory board for this local organization who pours their heart and souls into empowering and bettering the lives of women who are in a position to be helped. Soup of Success provides an intense 20-week program that a woman can apply to be apart of that helps transform their lives from job training, emotional counseling, and so much more. The women learn on-hands job skills by creating and manufacturing a variety of products like soups, dips, cookie mixes, etc. These products are then sold and the proceeds go back into the organization to fund the program. Added bonus: the products are so delicious, we love making their hearty potato soup on cold winter days!
