"You will accomplish this great feat with unexpected ease. You will pass it on to future generations. You will slather it on your burgers and pile high the mountain of grated cheddar cheese. You will become known far and wide for your great culinary skills. You will sing my praises...if you don't happen to already. And you will shout with exclamations of joy when the Great Burger Day comes and you can once again make Love Sauce."
-Jan N., Founder and Owner of Mom's Love Rub.
Our mom has always been on a mission to spread Love in the world. Way before Mom's Love Rub existed she was conjuring up all kinds of different secret recipes, including the famous "Love Sauce" mentioned in her original blog post. My mom grew up in Louisiana and used to eat at a spot that made her favorite favorite burger: charbroiled beef, shredded cheddar cheese, a toasted bun, and a special house sauce. Once she moved out of Louisiana, the craving for that taste never went away and my mom truly set out on a mission to recreate this sauce. As a young child I can vaguely remember this process, but what I remember most clearly was the delicious sauce she was finally able to recreate. We started using it on everything.. burgers, fries, you name it. (ok, not the most creative list but you get the idea!) "Love" became associated with everything my family made. Maybe it was a desire to bring some light and positivity into a world that was plenty dark on it's own or maybe it was something else, either way, we were definitely brought up in the peace loving hippie generation. (My parents had two hippie vans when I was growing up. I didn't realize until much later how awesome that was) So naturally, when my mom introduced "Mom's Love Rub" nobody batted an eye at the unusual name. Jokes, smirks, and funny comments definitely followed eventually...and never stopped... but despite every funny comment or suggestion that she change the name, the name "Mom's Love Rub" had stuck and there was no changing it. It's no secret that we are not the only all natural lotion on the market. And we are ok with people choosing an alternative brand if they are uncomfortable with our name. What sets us apart is that our mom truly does create and do everything in her life out of an intention of spreading and fostering Love. Everyone who knows her says the same thing. And that is true for each and every container of Mom's Love Rub.
So take a minute and check out this blog post she wrote about "Love Sauce" way back in the day that recently popped up. It'll make you laugh and give you a little bit more of an idea of who we are:
