From My Desk to Your Home: A Founder’s Journey with CBD Wellness December 5, 2023 – Posted in: Uncategorized

As the year draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the unexpected journey of Stono Creek. When I embarked on this venture in 2018, I couldn’t have predicted the longevity and profound impact our products would have. Initially, like many, I viewed CBD as a potential passing trend. However, the continuous stream of heartfelt messages from our customers, sharing how our products have transformed their lives, never ceases to amaze me. Each story is a poignant reminder of why we do what we do.

I’m not just the founder; I’m also a dedicated user of our products. Today, I want to share my personal experiences with two of my favorite Stono Creek staples: the CBD Advanced Potency tincture and the CBD balm.

The CBD Advanced Potency tincture is a daily ritual for me. The CBD Advanced Potency tincture has become more than just a supplement; it’s a part of my daily ritual of self-care and balance. I use it as a calming supplement, keeping a bottle at my desk at work for those particularly demanding days. At home, a bottle sits by my sink, a gentle reminder to take a moment for myself amid the hustle and bustle of daily life. I also keep one in the medicine cabinet, available for any family member in need of a bit of calm and relaxation.

Beyond its intended use, I’ve discovered it doubles as an incredible body oil. Initially, I was skeptical about applying it to my skin, concerned that the oil, mint essence, or stevia might not be suitable. To my delight, it has been nothing short of miraculous. I apply it lightly on my face after cleansing each night, and more generously from the neck down – yes, literally everywhere. My skin has never felt smoother or more even.

Turns out, the organic MCT oil, mint, and stevia in our tincture are not only beneficial internally but also have surprising implications for skin health. These natural ingredients work together to nourish and hydrate, leaving skin feeling refreshed and revitalized. It’s a discovery that even I, as the founder, didn’t anticipate.

The CBD balm is another indispensable part of my life. It’s a versatile companion that I keep within reach at all times – on my desk, in my car, and by the bedside in every room of our house. Its efficacy extends beyond just moisturizing dry lips or hands. It’s a soothing remedy for those small daily discomforts, a little token of self-care that makes a noticeable difference. I find that just rubbing the lavender-infused salve on my fingertips and cuticles before bed brings a wave of relaxation over my whole self.

As we look ahead, I’m filled with gratitude for the community we’ve built together. Your wellness journeys inspire our commitment to creating products that genuinely enhance lives.  But more than this, our wellness journeys are woven together – this is becoming more clear to me by the day.

Here’s to many more years of wellness, discovery, and community. Thank you for being a part of our Stono Creek family.
