Founder & Farmer
Angelique Macris Saffle
Angelique’s passion for organic products began in the late 80’s, when she and her mother co-founded Nature’s Marketplace Nutrition, a health food store in Washington. In addition to being a successful national public speaker and business coach, she studied herbs, nutrition and loves helping people with their health. “Farming was also an important part of our family heritage. My father was an organic farmer who grew a special appellation of grapes in his homeland, Greece. Our family has a long history of working with the land. Serving the natural products industry is a passion for us and we are honored we can be good stewards of the land. Through the years, I have personally witnessed some incredible experiences from “flower power”! We are grateful for the Bodyceuticals family and it’s an honor every time someone shares a success story with us about our products. With God’s grace, we’ll continue to help make a difference in people’s lives as well as help our planet.”
Farmer & Beekeeper
Mark Saffle is co-owner and heads up our farm and apiary. His specialty is gardening, soil nutrients & restoration. He is an avid outdoorsman and is our farm Macgruber. We are grateful for Mark’s sense of humor and service to our industry. He has a deep care for the environment, conservation and for helping to save the bees.
Jennifer was self-employed for 30 years with a small home based production business. An opportunity to go to work for Bodyceuticals came along 5 years ago and she has never looked back. Bodyceuticals has truly become part of her family. Jennifer and her husband enjoy gardening, hiking, road trips and playing with their 2 grandsons.
Carley started working for Bodyceuticals in the Fall of 2015 and feels so blessed to be working for such an amazing brand! She loves that the brand fits her lifestyle of living organically, taking care of your body and the environment. In her free time, you will find Carley teaching yoga and spending time in nature with her husband and dog, backpacking, climbing and exploring.
Alex McKeel moved to Washington after completing her Accounting degree from Arizona State University. Now a proud Washington resident, Alex supports natural products like Bodyceuticals because of the trusted quality (have you tried the spearmint lip balm?!) and because Earth is a great planet and responsible sourcing is important. When Alex is not immersed in spreadsheets, hobbies include traveling, home improvement, and playing with her two dogs.

Soil to Skin
The Bodyceuticals USDA Certified Organic Farm is located in the Snoqualmie Valley, the agriculture region of King County in Western Washington and home to many organic farms.
This Valley is the ancestral home of the Snoqualmie tribe and used to be called "valley of the moon". This area is a remnant of an oceanic plate volcano and is part of the Western margin of the cascade range near Puget Sound. Our family farm is surrounded by a riparian forest, pristine streams and a lot of fresh air – a microclimate which all makes for exceptional plants & products for our customers.
Here are some of the Bodyceuticals farm highlights:
- USDA Certified Organic Producer/Grower
- USDA Certified Organic Processor/ Manufacturer
- Closed farming system & permaculture practices
- Well irrigation = pure water rich in minerals
- Farm animals for manure – wildlife for diversity
- Non-GMO seed preservation
- Organic & Biodynamic practices
- Certified Bee Friendly Farm & Apiary using natural beekeeping methods
- Herbs carefully harvested & products minimally processed to preserve nutrients
We're honored that we can take care of the land and produce exceptional quality products used by family, customers and practitioners worldwide.
We hope you love Bodyceuticals products and our beloved calendula. Thank you for your business and your support of organic agriculture. God bless.
