When a mothers’ love ignites a passion
When Reno and I learned in 1995 that our son had a focus problem and wasn’t “behaving properly” in school, the last thing we expected was to be ridiculed for asking if there was a natural, less harmful alternative to drugs. Watch this video by Lynn to see how she realized that nutrition plays a huge role in our health and wellness and that nature might offer actual solutions hidden in plain sight.
Meet your BōKU Family
Our story, like most stories, is wrapped up in layers — chapters of upheaval and chapters of astonishing beauty. In 1995 my husband and I discovered superfoods while searching incessantly for an alternative to prescription drugs to help our son, who was having a difficult time focusing in school. Our kitchen became a bit of an experimental lab full of superfood concoctions. We found the most potent foods on Earth, but it turned out a lot of them were less than tasty. This is how Boku was born, to create superfoods that not only fueled and nourished the body but tasted delicious. The change we saw occur in our amazing child left us in awe. We fell into the world of plants, of learning about all the medicine our Earth had to offer. It led us on adventures around the world, meeting incredible people who were producing foods that were laced with magic and love. Potent superfood ingredients from their conception in the fertile soil were tended with care and an unfaltering dedication. Through our love of food, we discovered a passion for sustainable living on the whole. We began to dream up a line of lifestyle products that would focus on natural, organic ingredients and be free of toxins and chemicals. We understood that healing only happened with full shifts of mind, body, and spirit. As a family, we transitioned into a healthy, vibrant lifestyle and built a company on this ethos. Our #1 goal is to spread health and wellness to ALL people. As time passed and we found a formulator that understood and valued our vision, BōKU® International, Inc was born. 100% certified organic, vegan, kosher, and gluten-free products that are made with your health and the health of the planet in mind. We built our shop and processing facility in our hometown of Ojai, California. Our valley of the moon. We love bringing the community together for healing events, and or inviting all to come into our storefront and learn about our products in person. The story of us is continually being written. We cannot wait to see where the future takes us. Thank you for being part of it all.
