As a kid, one thing I remember doing with my mom was making face masks and hair rinses from all kinds of kitchen ingredients. There was something magical about re-purposing those edible ingredients into a super beneficial product for the hair or skin that seemed to be such a secret (or else why wasn't everyone making oatmeal and strawberry face masks??), which I think enticed me some. Though we only got to do it a handful of times, it was something that really stuck with me, enough that I had just been thinking my dream job would be making natural skin care. And here I am now!
I love to be able to help people look good and feel good about themselves, while helping to decrease toxic body burden and help people live a healthier, higher quality life. Both physical and emotional aspects of life have to be taken into account to achieve greatest health. I love making products with essential oils and other plant material that can benefit us in both ways. The scents of the essential oils can so directly impact our mood with just one sniff, while they and the other plant-based ingredients can nourish, heal and protect the skin.
All skin care and wellness products are made with high quality materials and authentic essential oils, with the purpose of providing maximum benefits through minimal processing. I have designed all products with mature skin in mind, as it’s never too early (or late) to start thinking about caring for our most visible and largest organ!
