Dzovig shared her homemade products with friends and relatives. They loved the products and constantly nagged her to sell them. She dismissed their suggestions until one day when she was at a family camp in the mountains with her children. The mountain camp had mosquitos. Lavender is a natural mosquito repellent. So Dzovig made a lavender spray to keep the mosquitos off of her family. As other campers forgot their mosquito repellents, Dzovig offered her lavender spray and told them they were welcome to use hers, but that it was “natural”. When they tried it their first reactions were, “Oh, this smells good. Are you sure this will work?” A couple hours later, they came back to her and said, “Hey, I don't have any mosquito bites. I don't know if it's your stuff or if it's coincidence.” At this same camp, one of the helpers badly burned the back of her shoulder on a hot door of a commercial oven. The camp nurse tried to aid her with what she had available, but the pain did not subside. Dzovig offered the helper the lavender spray because it is an antiseptic and aids in burn relief. Because of the severity of the burn, she applied a bit more than usual, but the burn pain began to subside. The woman asked Dzovig to constantly spray her with the lavender mist because of the relief she felt with it. Dzovig gave her the bottle before leaving camp and by the end of the week, the woman was swimming in the pool. After Dzovig left the camp, the camp director (her cousin Richard Taminsoian who eventually became her label designer) called and asked her where he could purchase the mosquito repellent because he wanted to use it on his own kids. Dzovig told him he could not buy it because she made it herself. That was when Dzovig decided she should market her products.
After receiving support and advice from many good friends, her company was established in 2008. She began selling at the local Vineyard Farmers Market. She has also exhibited and sold her products at The Fresno Wellness Fair and the Fresno Home and Garden Show. At the Fresno Home & Garden Show, Dzovig learned that the majority of people really do not appreciate the health effects of products they use everyday in their homes. It is Dzovig's goal that people recognize ingredients in products and how those ingredients affect us. Do you really want a product that you use to clean your home to contain formaldehyde or any other toxic chemicals? The first step is to educate yourself and READ THE INGREDIENTS LIST ON THE LABELS! The next step is to use products that do NOT contain toxic chemicals.
If you personally don't have time to make your own products at home, Dzovig has made these products, essentially for you.
