In 2017, Lisa developed a naturalistic and wholesome mindset to begin working on a healthier lifestyle. Researching product labeling, she found a dissatisfaction with the wording “natural ingredients”, “natural flavor”, “artificial flavor” and the generic term “spices.” Unfortunately, she found that even though “natural flavors and ingredients” come from natural sources, they often contain artificial and synthetic chemicals added during the manufacturing process.
With the help of her husband Raymond and her desire to create pure, handcrafted seasoning and tea blends without fillers, anticaking agents or artificial ingredients, Sweet Dandelion was born. Beginning with a few select blends and extracts, Lisa was able to set up at vendor events and had products at a local gift store. In June of 2021 Sweet Dandelion Gift Shop opened in Mercersburg to showcase Sweet Dandelion products and to give artisans and artists a local venue to show and sell their crafts. Sweet Dandelion product line lists over 27 seasoning blends and 33 teas and syrup mixes.
