About Us

 Welcome to the Oasis!

It continues to be a deliberate adventure...

My husband and I had engineering jobs and big city lives in the late 90's, but we were longing for something more authentic, simpler and closer to nature.

So we bucked the system, quit our jobs and moved to the mountains outside Ashland, Oregon on the other side of the country.

The dictionary defines Oasis as:

1. a small fertile or green area in a desert region, usually having spring or well.

 2. something serving as a refuge, relief, or pleasant change from what is usual, annoying, difficult, etc.

 Creating our refuge meant building a sustainable strawbale home on the side of our hill, an abundant vegetable garden, and eventually a little workshop for my skin care creations.  I homeschooled our children, and they've grown up with chickens and sheep, as well as ducks, geese, turkeys, goats, bees, dogs, cats, and horses...and our passion for everything organic and natural continues to grow.

We spend lots of time together as a family, with no t.v. or video games (although we do own a t.v. and rent one movie a week). I love to cook, render my own organic lard, and can my own spaghetti sauce and dilly beans. This way of life on our little farm is a lot of hard work, but it brings us contentment and joy.  

Living connected to nature, taking care of God's animals, eating clean food we grow ourselves, sharing our lives with a little tribe of friends and family, and breathing mountain fresh air has brought us happiness and peace.

To bring you this same sense of well-being, my skin care works deeper, supporting body and spirit while connecting you to nature. 

Meaningful skincare.

Feel botanicals and essential oils that promote a restored spirit as well as beautiful skin. Zagorska Oasis products are created right here on our mountain, and my care & support goes into every drop.

Experience how a few minutes a day in the Oasis can change your life!
