Love. Truth. Beauty. Balance. Harmony.
We believe in energy. We believe that what you put out there, you get back tenfold. That’s why we create clean products using all natural ingredients and processes that respect this earth and its people. Not only are our products clean, but we go a step further by using Reiki to infuse every essential oil blend with healing energy.
We’re from the school of thought that empowered, aware people can change the way the world works, starting in their communities and reverberating across the globe. This planet needs a healthy dose of feminine energy and reconnection to our intuition. We want to empower people to connect with that part inside of them that already knows.
Transparency and integrity are non-negotiables. Are we perfect? Nope, but we’re trying our best. Intentions are powerful; ours are good, and we know that they’re going to get us to where we need to be.
We believe in doings things with LOVE. So, what exactly does that mean?Well, you know how your grandma used to say “made with love”? It’s kind of like that. Every single one of our essential oil blends has Reiki (Energy work)performed on them, infusing them with energy to help promote health + wellness in the mind, body, and soul.
We’re big fans of the golden rule, but we also know some rules are made to be broken. Sometimes the status quo shouldn’t be the status quo—and the world needs people who trust their intuition enough to see that and to do something about it. Be bold.
We know that we are all connected. We know that what we do matters. What you put out into the world impacts it, and you get to choose what that impact looks like. That’s why we believe in good energy at every step of the process, on every level of our company. From sourcing oils to production and packaging—we’re interested in the ripple effect of what we do.
And, call us crazy, but we think that the products you use shouldn’t poison you.
Meet Kelli Taylor. Registered Acupuncturist (RAC), graduated Dr. of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and founder of Urban Body Organics.
Long story short? She had open heart surgery at 25 and became obsessed with living the healthiest (and longest) life she can, and helping others do the same. Clean products are a big part of that.
Kelli’s personal health journey has included a variety of modalities, including aromatherapy, holistic nutrition, NAET, and acupuncture— which eventually led her to open Elements Wellness Centre in Vancouver, BC. As her acupuncture practice grew, Kelli saw more and more people coming to her struggling with hormonal issues and chronic diseases such as cancer. An avid environmentalist, and David Suzuki fan, Kelli was well aware of the Queen of Green’s Dirty Dozen, (a list of cosmetic chemicals that can wreak havoc on the body) and the role that they can play in hormonal balance and disease. So, while Kelli personally tried to live a clean and conscious lifestyle, she began to realize that her patients might not be as aware of the impact that their everyday products were having on their health. As someone who had committed their life to helping others achieve, and maintain health, Kelli decided she would use her wellness centre as an opportunity to educate people on the importance of clean products.
After a disappointing search for clean, all natural products to use in her wellness centre, Kelli decided to take matters into her own hands. Having trained in aromatherapy, and energy work, Kelli carefully crafted all-natural products and, using Reiki, she infused them with love and healing energy. It didn’t take long for clients to start asking where they could buy them and, voila, UBO was born!
