Knowing Wellness in Community
Hi, I'm Maggie.
Hausfrauen-4-Life is an idea that evolved amongst myself and a handful of my inner circle of new mum friends, who are devoted to living their values!
Alternative and natural.
Serving the people.
These days, a large part of Hausfrauen, or home-making, is acquiring the resources to do our work with intentional, intellectual, and emotional integrity. In the age of excess, consumerism and disposables, when we can have everything, so much of it is turning out to be toxic garbage. Then comes the stress of trying to make guilt-free choices on behalf of children.
How do we live our values? How do we get what we really want? How do we get what we really need?
Whether working outside the home or from home, living alone or with friends, lovers, or family, many women are Hausfrauen-4-Life! #H4L Giving unconditionally in economically undervalued, traditional, female gendered roles of caregiver, social connector, maintenance worker, professional organizer, and sustainability maker of... the household.
Helping shift societal beliefs of a woman's worth is important to me as a mother because I see my daughters as naturally generous and want them to be free to go forth and serve without compromise.
The solution? Living SUSTAINABLY with essential oils. Yes, this lifestyle is challenging my assumptions and improving the economic and health status of caregivers and their families. I believe we can welcome this change, because I am experiencing these two things outside of the conventional framework:
1. Simplifying holistic health for caregivers with Ready-made and Do-It-Yourself science-based solutions that displace harmful and risky options, and strengthen our relationship with nature and self.
2. Demonstrating the value of caregiver roles through a meritocracy-based compensation structure that provides: financial independence to homemakers and sustainability to wellness professionals.
