The Start of Morning Light Kombucha

My kombucha journey began after a 2010 autoimmune disease diagnosis. Determined to forge my own healing path, I went back to what I had learned throughout my life...that food is medicine. I discovered the importance of having a healthy gut and how it directly effects the immune system, so I began changing my eating habits. With the introduction of a diet rich in ferments and whole foods and the elimination of foods that trigger my flareups, I have been able to keep my autoimmune illness under control for over 1o years!

In 2011, I left my life in academia to raise my daughter closer to family, I was blessed to meet a beautiful friend, who shared a scoby with me. Within a month my counter top looked like a little lab, with brewing logs and jars of booch in various stages of fermentation. Soon family and friends fell in love with my brews and began sharing with others. I decided to take the leap and start my own kombucha company. After lots of hardwork, Morning Light Kombucha was born in 2016!

Morning Light Kombucha is a labor of pure and utter love, with the company thriving because of the generous help, and support from family, friends and our community. So from our family to yours….cheers to following your heart, living out your dreams and most importantly to your trusting your gut.

Xoxo,
