I created Midwest Nourishment out of a desire to glorify the Lord and His design for the products we put on our family's skin and use in our homes. When I was pregnant with my son, I realized that even the belly bump butters and diaper creams labeled "non-toxic, all natural" etc., were still full of cheap seed oils and devoid of nutrients. I have high standards for the things I want to use on my family's skin, so I started making whipped tallow with high quality beef fat that I sourced from a local farmer and jojoba oil infused with organic calendula. I felt not only comfortable putting this on my newborn's skin, but also knew it would provide deep nourishment for him. I started making it for friends and family during nap time and on weekends and Midwest Nourishment was born! I've expanded into medicinal tinctures I make with fresh plants I either grow or forage for myself, medicinal salves, and sourdough starter!
