At Koofie’s Natural Living we believe what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body. We provide simple, safe and healthy skin and body care products as well as food and traditional herbals for whole body wellness!
Simple, clean ingredients are the missing link to reducing environmental stress on your body. Everything you put in and on your body is an opportunity to simplify. The fewer unknown and complicated ingredients that enter your body, the less difficulty your body has in breaking them down to use or dispose of them.
Environmental stresses on the human body can include anything that your body comes in contact with. Food, chemicals, allergens, pollution, water quality, and air quality are all environmental stressors to humans. Some of these are out of our control but limited the amount of stress can help your body deal with those stressors you cannot control.
Your body knows what to do with the simple ingredients that it’s evolved to encounter. But ingredients with long names or copious processing are not something our bodies know what to do with. These new formulations can cause added stress to a body that’s already dealing with things in our environment we cannot control.
This is exactly why we have created high-quality products for you and your family! We know that providing what is best for your body and to those you love is important to you, and we are committed to creating simple, nourishing products that make you feel good about what you feed and use to care for your body.
Providing simple, clean food and body products for yourself and your family is an investment in your future. Now is the best time to improve your nutrition and reduce chemical stress caused by body products. Did you know that according to an Environmental Working Group study, the average man uses 6 products per day, the average woman uses 12 products per day, and the average teenage girl uses 17? Let’s make the products you use reflect the quality you deserve.
We are here to help you become the best YOU you can be! We created these products to reduce our own stress on our body and we are here to help you do the same.

Duck eggs: Our ducks have free-range of the farm. They have a nearby seasonal pond that is usually full in Spring, wet weeks in the summer and autumn, a stream down the hill that runs year-round, and in the summer a small pool I clean and refill a few times a week. They also enjoy a few acres of woods and horse fields for bug foraging. They’re fed fermented GMO-free and soy-free feed. All of our ducks lay large – jumbo sized white or slightly colored eggs. If you don’t know about the benefits of duck eggs, please read our article on them.
Chicken eggs: Our chicken coop is right next to the duck coop and they often free-range as a large group. Our chickens are also fed GMO-free and soy-free feed. They produce large eggs in shades of brown and green/blue.
Pork: We have a small heard of pigs consisting of one boar and two sows, along with piglets in various stages of growth. The pigs have access to 10-30 acres of woods and are fed fermented GMO-free and soy-free feed daily in addition to what they glean from the forest. Pork is available as a half or whole hog, and we may start producing cuts of meat in the future. Please email us for questions about pork availability!
Lamb: We are in our second year of producing lamb and our availability is very slim as we grow our herd. Our lamb is out on pasture all year and supplemented with excellent quality hay when the grass isn’t growing. Please contact us about lamb as we will be taking deposits in mid-late summer for late fall lamb.

Ditch the Itch: Poison Ivy Relief Salve (Limited Edition). This amazing salve is perfect for those who are prone for poison ivy or who want to have something on hand “just in case”. Ditch the Itch is made from wildcrafted jewelweed and plantain infused in organic olive oil, as well as beeswax.
Note: This is a Limited Edition Product. It can only be offered when we have the supplies to make it; Jewelweed is only available seasonally.
Magnesium Oil: Our magnesium oil is made from magnesium chloride flakes and distilled water. It’s a great way to apply magnesium transdermally. If you find it causes you itching, we recommend you try spraying it on the soles of your feet or diluting it 50% with water. Over time, most people are able to transition to spraying it on their body or using it full-strength.
After-Sun Care Cream: As careful as we try to be, it’s easy to get a bit too much sun. This cream helps soothe and moisturize your skin when you’re a bit crispy. We use aloe vera gel, shea butter, calendula oil, beeswax, coconut oil, raw honey, vitamin E oil, essential oils of frankincense, lavender, tea tree, peppermint to make this wonderful cream. It is recommended for use only on 1st and mild 2nd degree sunburns. Currently this is produced by special order as it’s used seasonally 🙂
Balms and Salves: Our line of luscious lip and body balms began after many requests. We have both regular and tinted lip balms. We currently have two salves: Gardener’s Salves for all-purpose healing and Ditch the Itch, which can help decrease your discomfort from poison ivy (see above).
