Jillian Harris does it all — from designing beautiful spaces to hosting Love it or List It to creating a home full of love for her (growing!) family. And, she does it with infectious energy and endless enthusiasm.
Her signature style is a blend of influences that combine living an authentic life with living a natural life. Recently we collaborated with Jillian on a one-of-a-kind diffuser that perfectly captures her passion for connection, comfort, health and love, while delivering a beautiful dose of health and happiness to your space.
We caught up with Jillian to hear more about how she’s designing an all-natural life for her and her family, one choice at a time.
WHAT WAS YOUR ‘AHA’ MOMENT THAT PUT YOU ON A PATH TOWARDS A MORE NATURAL LIFESTYLE?
It was when I first had my son, Leo. After he was born, I suddenly started paying more attention to the ingredients in everyday products and what sort of a role they played not only the health of our family, but on our environment as well.
I feel better inside and out when I use all-natural products, because I know I'm doing my part to keep our health and our environment top of mind.
WHAT WAS THE EASIEST NATURAL SWITCH YOU MADE IN YOUR HOME?
Making the switch to natural cleaning products! It was an easy transition to go from our typical cleaning products to the 100% natural options at Saje. It gives me more peace of mind when using them with little ones running around our home!
Working with a brand like Saje means I never have to worry about the harmful effects of toxic ingredients. Knowing their products are 100% natural, yet still effective, has made my shift to a more natural lifestyle so simple.
WHAT IS YOUR NEXT MOVE TOWARDS A MORE NATURAL LIFE?
Recently I made the transition to natural deodorant and next up is switching to natural body wash and toothpaste!! There’s so many ways we can make a natural choice, and sometimes it’s just a matter of looking at what products you are using every day, and switching one out for an option that is better for you and the environment.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR CHARITY OF CHOICE, MAMAS FOR MAMAS.
Mamas for Mamas is a local award winning charitable organization that supports mothers in crisis, and provides ongoing support to low income Mamas and their kids. The incredible group of mamas who created this organization understand that there’s enough to take care of when you’re a parent without also having to worry about the basics like making sure your kids are clothed, fed nutritious food and are safe.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE WORK THAT THEY DO?
I love how much impact the Mamas to Mamas team makes on our community by providing mental health support and multiple services and resources to those who need it most. They put in countless hours of their own time making sure that no mama is left behind.
They also have a Karma market which supplies basic necessities for mamas and their families along with clothing for the mamas to come pick up for their children if they are in need of something like a winter jacket or winter boots and that alone is so important to have available.
I constantly pinch myself on how lucky I am with the career I have been blessed with and the financial support it provides me and my team with and additionally I love to also share it with our community to help provide any assistance I can for mamas in need. Knowing that I'm helping make a difference in someone's life, no matter how big or small, makes me feel so happy and proud.
WHAT DOES THE WORD ‘WELLNESS’ MEAN TO YOU?
Wellness to me means feeling good from the inside out and finding that balance in life. Making sure to set quality time aside every single day to spend with the ones you love and reset. And to put down my damn phone.
