Hi, I’m Lori Q, founder of Chalice Spice. The old adage that the most important thing in life is your health became very real to me when I was faced with several health challenges including auto-immune issues. Almost immediately, my medicine cabinet became stocked with prescription drugs aimed to help me. While they helped in some ways, they also negatively impacted me in many other ways. My digestion and mood, among other things, were compromised, so I turned to a Naturopath and natural medicine to seek alternatives.
I started to understand that the daily things we choose have an impact on our lives. Repeatedly I was told that “organic” foods, spices, teas and health products were paramount. If you are like me, I was confused by the labelling, use of terminology and they myriad of contradictory information out there.
That is when I took matters into my own hands. With a purchasing and supply chain background of over 16+ years, I used the knowledge and skills I have to drill down, get answers and determine what is truly organic. I investigated suppliers and farmers to understand how ingredients are grown, the origin of their seeds, the quality of their soil, handling processes, and certifications to determine for myself if their products were truly organic.
Armed with only real ingredients, I began to create spice and tea blends to incorporate into my love of cooking. It turned out that many others were looking for these genuine products as well. Soon naturopaths, health food stores, grocery stores and others were coming to us to source out the organic spices and teas.
We are here to save you the time and effort of sifting through the maze that makes up the “organic” space. You can trust our products are made with certified organic, 100% real ingredients and handcrafted with the best of intentions & love and made in small batches to ensure freshness.
Healthy living , healthy choices and using real ingredients have become a family affair. Everyone in my family is invested to the adage that health is the most important thing in our lives. Ron, my husband of over 20 years helps out in every aspect of the business. Ron has always been my support system and whatever needs to be done, he does it. My daughter, Elisa who loves beauty products has developed our bath & body line and soon will be expanding this product line to include organic skincare and makeup. My daughter Emilia who loves animals has developed organic treats and holistic pet supplements for our furry family members, Maggie, Ringo and Zorro. She created 4Paws1Pup products which we also craft with the same love and attention in using organic ingredients as we do our other products. Check them out.
We promise to share what we learn with you, provide you with great recipes and continue to scour the market for the best, most genuine ingredients possible.
In your good health,
