My name is Melanie Critchett Gray, and I’m a lifelong resident of Candia. I grew up on Critchett Road and later moved 5 miles away to Currier Road where our family has resided for 30 plus years. Our farm name, Graymare came from the blending of my husband’s family and mine. Gray, (Jim and his children) + Melanie + Ashley +Rebecca + e.
Graymare Essentials was established seven years ago when my longtime desire for a healthy, cleaner lifestyle crossed paths with essential oils and herbalism. The results are a healthier, happier family & momma.
I enjoy making our family, salves, soaps, serums, wellness syrups to support our health, using therapeutic grade essential oils and organic ingredients. Up till last year, I have been sharing with family, friends, and neighbors; and now you. (What we apply to our skin, breathe in, and ingest goes to every cell in our body in under a minute.) Because of this, our beauty, bath, and skin products should be of the best quality.
I joined the Candia Farmers Market in its first year in 2021 and I’m thrilled to have joined at the beginning. It was a pleasure seeing old friends, meeting new ones. And of course, talking about oils, health and wellness.
