Why Kanary (ca-nar-y)
I was a successful Hair Stylist for over 17 years. Owning two salons in different states. While working at last salon, I had used a newer product 9 times that desensitized my whole body. After 6 months of being miss diagnosed I finally was referred to my Naturopathic Doctor who diagnosed me with Severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. During one of many visits, my doctor said I was a “canary in the coal mine” whose body was now reacting to toxins in the environment that the average humans body does not detect.
Being diagnosed with MCS was very difficult it is an invisible condition that other people can not see. I was living in a bubble for almost 3 years. I had to limit who came to our house and where I went. We had to watch everything we used and brought into our home. At one point I had to donated every piece of clothing because I could not remove the scent from my previous laundry soap.
I had another environmental doctor tell me, Melisa this is awful this has happened to you but it is a blessing. Your body can now read carcinogens that are dangerous to us humans. And you can now share that with your friends and family. I thought, "WOW" I need to share this with the world.
As I worked to heal myself, I investigated every ingredient in all products even in so-called “natural” products; it set me on my mission to create Kanary Naturals—organic, a true non-toxic, preservative-free body care for everyone. I feel so thankful to have been on this journey to now provide not just my family but families across the world true honest natural skincare products.
