THE FOUNDER

Meet Ali, the beach wanderer, herbalist and health scientist, who created Earth Harbor Naturals out of her treehouse kitchen.

Growing up on the beautiful St. Simons Island, Georgia, I was instilled with a deep love of nature, the ocean, and island life at a young age. As a child, I created natural “beauty” concoctions to share with friends and family, from marsh mud masks to sea salt sprays.

In grad school, I specialized in environmental health and toxicology. Through my scientific research, I learned how many toxins we are exposed to daily, how those synthetic chemicals negatively affect our health, and how to use beneficial natural alternatives instead. I wanted to make an impact with this knowledge.

My husband and I chose to live in an off-the-grid treehouse we built as we began overhauling our lifestyle. A short time later, I was in a near-fatal car accident. Recovery was slow, painful, and anxiety-ridden as I suffered from both physical and mental injuries. A time came when healing seemed to completely stop, and I thought I would never regain my pre-accident self. At this time, I also found out I was pregnant with my miracle baby boy! The culmination of these life-altering experiences is when I knew I had to take clean living to the next level by being more critical of what I was putting both in and on my body.

My biggest struggle with having a natural lifestyle was finding effective, ethical, purely natural beauty products with the premium ingredients my skin desperately needed (especially ocean nutrients!) that were also all-around indulgent. That’s when I started making my own beauty products right out of my tiny treehouse kitchen — and Earth Harbor Naturals was born!
