HONEY DEW NATURALS
This family-owned business based out of Strawberry Plains, TN began out of necessity and has blossomed into a passion and way of life for owners Nate and Alicia Huff. When their first son was born, the Huffs’ desire to live naturally began to prompt changes in their household. The Huffs began phasing out harmful chemicals and incorporating more natural alternatives. Alli has spent hours studying herbs and food and when she’s not playing with their kids, most of her time is spent making products, experimenting with new products, and always researching. Nate is a beekeeper with an ever-growing apiary. He keeps his bees without the use of chemicals and is always working to learn more about organic beekeeping. Together this husband and wife duo produce handmade products with the best raw and organic ingredients. They use bee products and many different organic herbs for their healing qualities and infuse them into high quality oils and butters to create luxurious and healthy products. They never use synthetic fillers, fragrances, colors, preservatives, petrochemicals or even other “natural” ingredients that are not safe. Honey Dew Naturals believes that what goes on our skin is just as important as what goes in our bodies!

Our Father’s Healing Herbs

His interest in herbal healing blossomed from hobby to vocation as he learned more, shared his knowledge and products, and saw people change their lifestyles and diet after encountering herbal remedies. The company’s name comes from a particular line of scripture (John 5:44) and is part of Mike’s ongoing Christian ministry.
The Quirky Lantern Candle Co.
The Quirky Lantern Candle Co. was founded in North Knoxville in 2014. Allison and Sean Dietz love candles but found themselves susceptible to pesky environmental allergies. Unable to find a clean-burning alternative, as compared to traditional wax candles, that had scents they enjoyed, they decided to make their own! Coupled with their love of Knoxville’s downtown and their home neighborhood of Old North, Q.L.C.C. was born. They create their all-soy candles using only phthalate-free scents, cotton wicks, and they contain no dyes (which can contain phthalates as well) for a completely clean-burning candle.
