At Saint Jane, we fully believe in the powerful healing properties of CBD. So when choosing a name for our brand, we knew "Saint Jane" was perfect. Often referred to as the "darling of the herb industry" and the "innocent side of Mary Jane", CBD is a powerful ingredient scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. It's packed with antioxidants, vitamins, fatty acids, and omegas for serious nourishment.
But one of the biggest reasons we are named Saint Jane is because of the Patron Saint of Healing herself. So who was she?
1. Strong, Independent Woman...in 1601
Born on January 28, 1572, Jane Frances de Chantal was 21 when, as a well-educated woman, she married Baron de Chantal. Only seven years later, she became a widow at the age of 28 when he husband was accidentally killed. Alone with four kids, Jane rebelled against social norms, taking over her late-husband's estates and managing his multiple properties.
Today, de Chantal is known for her compassion and devotion to helping others. But after her husband was accidentally killed, she struggled with forgiveness. It wasn't until she had heard a sermon on love that she realized the best way to heal herself was to heal others. Her mission was to nurse the very sick, the elderly, and young, unwed mothers.
