About Miranda Barnhouse

Hello! I’m Miranda Barnhouse and I love to create and to feel alive! As a college student, I decided that the best way to stay healthy, happy, and sane about what I surrounded myself with was to deny the instant-ramen-and-cheap-soap lifestyle doomed to people my age, and instead put my creativity to work using the real and nourishing resources around me to create the healthy life I wanted to live. I am a Music and Psychology student determined to make a difference in the health and happiness of others by creating remedies of all kinds. When I’m not sitting and researching or reading blogs, I love to write music, blend yummy and healthful teas, spend time outside, and pretend to be a movie critic.
