Ocean Hippie Organics
What started your passion for Ocean Hippie Organics?
My passion for handmade skin care products
began while pregnant with my first child over 4 years ago. I quickly became one
of those women who obsessed about what I put in my body via beauty products and
for the first time in my life I became aware of ingredients and how amazing our
skin is. Out of my immediate love and devotion to our unborn child (and for my
fear of stretch marks) I embarked on an oily journey that ultimately became
Ocean Hippie Organics.
What’s your favorite item?
My favorite product is by far the Ancient
Recipe Face Serum made with Jojoba Oil, Young Living Frankincense and
I have never been to one to wear a ton of
makeup, if any, so I have to keep my skin fresh and youthful. To do so I apply
this oily serum to my face and neck every single day after I shower. The
intense blend of vitamin E from the Jojoba oil and the holistic skin healing
properties of the Frankincense and Myrrh my face has fought off sun damage from
my years of coastal living and natural aging wrinkles. I honestly will never
put anything store bought on my face again as my pores have become incredibly
spoiled and pampered!
What’s your most popular item?
OHO’s most popular item is a close call
between the Ancient Recipe Serum and the Matcha Body Butter. Both men and women
immediately fall in love face Serum. My husband and other male users say they
love the Serum for the perfect after shave feel. My dad uses the Serum everyday
on his face to help heal his skin cancer scars and help with exhausting cancer
spots (Frankincense and Mryyh are most amazing oils to help heal skin cells!).
What’s your favorite thing about the OBX?
The Outer Banks has been my home away from
home since I was in my mother’s womb. I am from New Bern but a lot of my
upbringing was in Corolla. My parents moved a house to Corolla when Route 12
was still dirt so to say that me and my family enjoyed the “wild” Corolla is an
understatement. Freedom, solitude, nature, wind, and extraordinary experiences
are what made up my childhood and shaped me into the free spirit I am today.
Wildness is what I love about the Outer Banks. It still exists here but not as
freely as 20 years ago but if you know where to look you can still find
Barrier Island Bagels
What’s your favorite bagel/cream cheese?
Wow, choosing just one favorite bagel and
cream cheese is difficult. But I guess my go to on any given day is a
everything bagel with veggie cream cheese on the side ( I am a dipper). But if
I have a sweet tooth, French Toast bagel for sure!
What’s your most popular bagel/cream cheese?
The most popular bagel winner hands down are
French Toast Bagel and Everything Bagel. Both are pretty versatile and can
accommodate breakfast sandwiches, cream cheese, butter, and some folks even put
ham on the French Toast!
What does your daily routine look like on nice Spring
Spring is one of best seasons on the
Outer Banks and for good reasons. Empty beaches, perfect weather, restaurants
reopening and the return of money!
My daily routine on a nice spring day is kids,
make money, play outside, sleep, repeat! We are a family of outdoor enthusiasts
and conservations so the hustle to get outside is very real every day.
Besides the store, where in the OBX is your favorite
place to go?
I enjoy several other businesses but
when it comes to my favorite place to go it’s always in nature. I will choose a
sunset, campfire or beach adventure over any restaurant or bar every time
