Let me introduce myself. I’m Lisa Magoulas, co-owner and founder of Organic Body Solutions. My best friend, handsome man, love of my life, biggest fan, my husband Spiro, is the other co-owner.
I’m the creator, cook, and bottler of all the products. He’s the support person, packaging person, and my on-site funny guy. He puts a smile on everyone’s face.
Let me give you a little background.
I have been a licensed cosmetologist in two states for over 30 years, which means I’m very knowledgeable about skincare. Learning aesthetics is part of getting a cosmetology license.
I was in IT over 20 years, because I really love technology, seeing things go from start to finish, digging in and making things happen. I’ve always liked pulling things apart to make them work again.

I lost my corporate job in 2013, due to outsourcing. I had two choices; get another corporate job, or reinvent myself (for the bazillionth time – yes, it’s a word in my vocabulary).
I have never been let go from any job in my life. I was devastated. I was also skeptical about going back to corporate.
I was always been interested in nutrition. Now, facing unemployment, I thought it was a good time to enroll into The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I studied to be a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner. I learned more than I ever had imagined. Not just nutrition, but how everything affects our health including spirituality, relationships, our jobs.
Not long after I graduated, I started getting into using essential oils. I really liked how they were making me feel. I noticed all the healing effects they had on me. My husband really liked them too.
I wanted to learn more so I started taking different Aromatherapy classes at The Aromahead Institute. This is where I learned so much about how we can use all natural ingredients to put on our body, treat our body, take care of our body.
As I began to make products for family and friends, it became apparent to me how many of them loved my products and wanted to purchase them. It was then I decided to create my company Organic Body Solutions with my husband so that I could share these pure and wonderful products with everyone.
