Excellent Extracts is a small business in Rock Hill, S.C. that makes food-safe extracts for cooking, baking, drinks, and more. Owner Casandra Merwin describes how her passion for living a clean, healthy lifestyle came when her stepson entered her life. She explains, “Before he came into my life I would eat fast food and I didn’t care about anything… I didn’t think about it until I was giving it to somebody else. And I was like, wait, this is probably not that great for you. So, on that aspect, it got me thinking about what products I’m cleaning with or what things I have in my house that really are not that great for you.”
