About Melanie's Heath & Nutrition


Our Story

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals—skin care products formerly known as SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty five years ago as Melanie faced cancer.

After becoming aware of alternative therapies, Melanie searched for ways to make a healthier lifestyle. This included learning about herbs which gave her the answer she needed for skin care products to support this healthier lifestyle. She knew she wanted natural ingredients; her eureka moment came when she started infusing herbs into her products to supply even more nourishment to the skin.

In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a local resource for the Tooele Valley. The back section of this store now serves as the creation hub for Auminay. Melanie's Health & Nutrition has literally been homegrown from the ground up with the help of the entire Skelton family. Without all of them this store would not be possible.

Our Team

The team at Melanie's Health & Nutrition is made up of service-minded individuals who love using natural means to find solutions. Each team member found their way to Melanie's on a different path, yet each loves to help people find ways to live more happily and naturally.

Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning and natural products that empower people to be healthier.
