About The BoCo
What is the Botanical Collective?
The Botanical Collective (The BoCo) is group of
like-minded, Young Living essential oils loving people,
who believe in using real oils in real life.
The BoCo was created by Stephanie Clark + Danielle Caputo, two IRL friends who met at a birthday party, chatted it up and found out that their husbands used to be close as children. (Nintendo FTW!) They bonded over their tales from the trenches of motherhood, their love of good food and, of course, all things Harry Potter.
The formation of this community, The Botanical Collective, was a natural next step for them after discovering how much they both loved Young Living’s essential oils. With the smatterings of misinformation and unsafe essential oil practices spread around the internet (hello, Pinterest!), they decided to form their own group and provide E.O. safety and education information to the people that they cared about. They wanted a space where there could connect with other modern oilers, share their knowledge and guide oil newbies.
Stephanie is a Momma to two boys and Wife to her High School Sweetheart, Dustin. They live in their hometown, Oakley, CA, in the house of her late Auntie Barbie, where the memories remain and the roses still bloom in the backyard.
Stephanie has long been immersed in the world of handmade bath and body products, natural remedies and healthy eating, especially with her medical history. After surviving cancer four times (minus a leg, a lung and little bit of stomach), she made it a priority to focus on natural wellness and healthy living. She took classes at The Nova Studio, where she learned about bath & body products, and formulation, and eventually fell in love with essential oils. From her research and experience, she knew how potent and concentrated they were, but she found herself a tad bit leery as to which brand of oils to actually use for home use and skin application, especially once she had her babies. Many hours of additional research and the help of a dear friend (Jen!) led her to Young Living essential oils. The rest is history! They call her the #OilYoda.
Danielle is a Super Mom! She has four kiddos, ages 3 to 13 and is married to her High School Sweetheart. They reside in their hometown and she spends her time doing all things family! From basketball to baseball to birthday parties and Mom's Night In oil and pampering events, Danielle is busy!
She was introduced to Oils by Stephanie, hesitated and then fell head over heels once she actually tried them. She uses oils in her every day life, from boo-boos on her littles, to burns on her arm (#ovensarehot). She even makes her own luxury body butter from scratch and her coffee scrubs are killer!
