To Falls Lake or the Capital Area Greenway System.

Where is your favorite place to take a vacation or where is your dream vacation destination?

Anywhere in the Caribbean!

What does “Doing Others Good” mean to you?

“Doing Others Good” means using available resources which could be time, money, or even just a listening ear to benefit a person or group that may be in need. By doing so, you may have to stop out of your comfort zone, but in the end everyone benefits, and communities are made stronger.

What is your favorite part about Murphy’s Naturals?

I like being part of a company that includes as part of their mission “to  celebrate nature & inspire good.” I also like my sunny work corner and the York Peppermint Patties that Philip gives out.

Update on our Rooftop Hives!

Emily Bennett

The Buzz On Our Rooftop

Our good friend Leigh-Kathryn, from Bee Downtown stopped by earlier this week to give us a tour of our rooftop hives! We now have a total of 5 hives on our 5-acre rooftop, with 60,000 bees hard at work in each one.

New Fiercely Effective Ingredients

Thanks to Bee Downtown, we utilize beeswax from our rooftop honey bee hives and neighboring hives in our soy and beeswax candles. We left out all of the ingredients we don't want, so you won't find DEET, petroleum or any toxins in our candles. Our sustainable formulation of these key plant based ingredients burn clean, naturally. We're looking forward to adding more beeswax to our all-natural products and continuing to watch these hives thrive!

What is your favorite way to Enjoy Life Outdoors?

My Dad taught me how to sail when I was a kid. Ever since then, my favorite way to enjoy life outdoors is with him, sailing around Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.

Where do you go when you want to take a break from the fast pace of life/work?

When I need a break from the fast pace of life/work, I head back to my hometown of Lynchburg, Virginia, where my friends and family live.  We spend way too much time on the James River kayaking, sailing and floating, and also hiking trails in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Where is your favorite place to take a vacation?

My favorite place to vacation is in Duck, North Carolina. For the past 30 years my family has vacationed at the same beach cottage for a week during the summer months.  We spend the week playing beach games, swimming, and eating great meals. I look forward to this trip year round!

What does “Doing Others Good” mean to you?

In my opinion, Doing Others Good means giving back to the community that I live in.

What is your favorite part about Murphy’s Naturals?

My favorite part about Murphy’s Naturals is working with my sister Stewart and my Uncle Philip. I also enjoy the service projects we do each month to give back to the community.

Locally Made: Good Dirt

Emily Bennett

Good Dirt, Good People, Good Products

Here at Murphy's we call Raleigh, North Carolina home. Ever since we planted our roots here back in 2014, we have strived to celebrate nature and inspire good through quality natural products. Our motto is Doing Others Good. Our Locally Made blog series will feature some of our favorite people and companies here in the Triangle. We want to celebrate other companies in Oak City whose mission is just as good as their product!

Good Dirt is a Locally Made Gardening Company here in Raleigh that we know and love! They produce quality products that are simple, successful and sustainable. One of our favorite things about them is that they are committed to doing good for the planet. Every quality company has a secret to their success, so here's the Dirt. Good Dirt uses Bogbits which are comprised of partially petrified peat from North American peat bogs. In years past, this by-product of peat moss harvest would have simply been discarded. Good Dirt reuses these bits to create their Soil Conditioner and Potting Mix.

They're cultivating more than just plants. Check them out here!

What is your favorite way to Enjoy Life Outdoors?

Hiking!

Where do you go when you want to take a break from the fast pace of life/work?

As much as I enjoy traveling, I typically stay around Raleigh in order to save up for a bigger adventure. On a more frequent basis I look forward to cooking and eating together with friends as a way to slow down between busy work schedules. 

Where is your favorite place to take a vacation?

I grew up in Orange County California, so I love going back to visit friends, family and of course, the local beaches. Next time I visit I'd also like to hop up North to see the Redwoods, San Francisco and maybe some of Oregon.

What does “Doing Others Good” mean to you?

Going out of your way to be thoughtful, compassionate and helpful, perhaps even sacrificing your own needs and desires in the process of trying to achieve good for others.

What is your favorite part about Murphy’s Naturals?

The practicality of insect repellent is certainly a plus, but I also really appreciate that Murphy's Naturals gives back to the community and environment by participating in 1% for the planet.
