Our Story


Hello! My name is Jennifer Dayley, and I'm the founder & owner of Meraki By Nature™.

Meraki is Greek for "putting yourself into your work through soul, creativity, and love..." It not only d
escribes us in the work we do, but it ALSO describes our wonderful customers who are on the path to improve their own health & wellbeing, through a more wholesome way of life.

I'm an author, blogger, product maker, health-freedom advocate, & teacher of natural & holistic (non-mainstream) living.

We live a semi-urban/rural homestead-ish life, hence my name since 2008 - The Modern Pioneer Mom™.


I've always been fascinated with self-reliance & homestead style living. Little did I know that over time, the things I learned would also shift everything about our health (healing) & home-education (homeschooling) as well, to create a complete family overhaul.

Eventually, I was able to overcome more than 20 health issues, ditch 18 years of pharma drugs, & shed 50 lbs... My husband also shed 50 lbs, and our family went from 11 meds, down to just 1 (only used when needed for auto-immune issues).


We took our health into our own hands, then I began helping people around the world, too. 

  • In 2007 my holistic learning began.
  • In 2008 my blog, The Modern Pioneer Mom™ was launched.
  • In 2010 my eyes were VERY open to industry corruption.
  • In 2012 we finally changed everything about our lifestyle.
  • In 2013 I started my company, The Healing Place, LLC.
  • In 2018 our product line, Meraki By Nature was born.

Less than a year later, our signature product, Perfect Pearlies Toothpaste™ quickly became our #1 seller! And we're excited to pair it with our new deodorant line for the perfect duo: PITS & PEARLIES™!

Our small family business is 100% hands on. And ALL of our products are made by us, in small batches, right here in the USA. 


We exist to Bring Health Back To Nature & Nature Back To Health™.

We exist to help our customers leave a lasting legacy of health & wholesome living, FREE of industry dependency.

We exist to bring relief to less fortunate people through 100 Humanitarians International... which allowed our daughter, Ashlynn, to serve in Kenya, Africa 3 times in just 16 months, as a teenager - (photos above).

Our donations support funding girl's Rescue Centers, Garden Boxes & Towers, Milk Cows, the Massai Mara Epernat Cultural Centre, Feminine Hygiene Kits, Educational Fees, & more... 
Your purchases help with this beautiful effort! We are truly grateful for the support from our wonderful customers.

Most of all, we exist to give glory to, and testimony of God's hand in ALL things.

  • This company exists because of Him.
  • Health & healing happen because of Him.
  • Life & miracles happen because of Him.
