At home in the Ozarks
Mariette Spidel is the maker of environmental purification sprays, organic skin, body and beard care products. GAL products are individually crafted in small batch with sustainable ingredients.
GAL ‘Consciously Crafted’ slogan is a reflection of not only the individual ingredients, but also in the packaging. Our packaging is either compostable, recyclable or can be repurposed. We use PLA, plant-based plastics when possible.
Mariette, a mom of three, Cosmetologist, Esthetician and retail manager by trade, bundles her passion for our earth, caring for our body as an eco system and her love of organic gardening when she set out to create her small business nestled in the Ozarks of Arkansas.
She and her husband moved to the Plateau region of the Ozarks 7 years ago, started a garden and settled into the Ozark way of life. As a young girl Mariette spent summers at either her grandparents’ home in South Arkansas or girl scout camps around Arkansas. It was in these environments that she learned the value of growing her own food, using resources wisely, and leaving our planet a better place for future generations. Holding on to those lessons from her childhood they now run deep within the creation of each Good Acres Life product.
Good Acres Life handcrafted products are crafted from pure and effective ingredients from nature without the use of petrochemicals, animal biproducts or synthetics. Instead, GAL uses botanicals, plant oils rich in phytonutrients that are rich in essential fatty acids, green antioxidants, and minerals from the earth.
Her home away from home is a small garden shed that she refers to as Ms. She Shed. Weather allowing, she opens all of the doors and observes nature at play in her two gardens. While working about on the Good Acres property or her gardens she is most always in the good company of one or more of the Good Acres furry friends.
