How we started!

Welcome to Sativa's Garden Inc.!

This product line started as a venture in my very own kitchen years ago. I was making bath products for friends and family for holidays and birthdays. I was surprisingly pleased with the end result, and they were even more elated!

For years I have struggled personally with sensitive skin. These recipes were created to avoid all the harmful chemicals and artificial scents we coat ourselves in on a regular basis. Store bought products typically leave me more dry and irritated. 

Our products don't have any parabens or harmful dyes. They leave you feeling soft, supple and healthy. Only using pure essential oils and no perfumes.

Where it all began.......well where my love for life and where the love for this precious hemp oil began. In August of 2019 I was grateful to get the opportunity to travel to Jamaica. I learned what the Jamaican flag meant to locals. “The sun shineth, the land is green and the people are strong and creative” is the symbolism of the colours of the flag. Black depicts the strength and creativity of the people, very resilient. Gold, the natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and green, hope and agricultural resources.The people i met were beyond kind. They would give you the shirt off their own back, literally. I learned what ONE LOVE really is. I looked and talked very different from most folks there. Blonde hair and southern drawl. Did that matter? Did that stop locals from being welcoming. Absolutely not. I have never felt more truly at HOME, when not at home. To eat , to listen to beautiful music, dance, laugh, explore,and enjoy this land. To use your land so fully, to embrace your heritage and be so proud, I loved it. As Bob Marley said “love the life you live. live the life you love.” And so here we are. Not just making natural beauty products. But using locally grown hemp oil in Richmond VA. We plan to continue to share with you our passion. To help you feel as beautiful as you truly are inside. To share love and kindness with all . Don’t ever let anyone dim your shine.

I am thankful to have a business partner who doesn't skimp on the farming aspect , and only the best goes in our products.

Everything we make is made with Love. Just as if it is made for someone we know personally. So I warmly thank you for reading this rant. It's almost over! Or really, it's just the beginning! 

It is my pleasure to share my passion with you! 

Stay tuned as we continue to grow in RVA and surrounding areas.

If for ANY reason you aren't happy with your purchase please reach out to me directly so we can make it right.

Love and peace always ,
