MEET THE MAKER
I never payed much attention to what I was putting on or into my body until I had my first child. I quickly discovered how under-regulated our cosmetic industry is. I could not believe how many cheap, toxic chemicals I was dosing my body with day in and day out by using even the most basic body care products like lotion, lip balms and soaps.
At the time, about 10 years ago, there was not many organic/clean products on the market, especially in the stores near me. Due to this, I began researching and learned how to make balms and lotions myself. I started experimenting with different formulas for my family and friends. Making balms quickly expanded and lead me on a journey of self healing and discovery. I began studying herbalism and Ayurveda to deeper understand the root cause of my ailments.
The skin is our largest organ and it absorbs up to 75% of what we put on it. Synthetic chemicals soak into the bloodstream, disrupt our hormones, throw off our gut microbiome and can also irritate and age the skin. Mix this toxic topical load in with the high inflammatory American conventional diet and the body is now operating out of alignment.
Healing the skin goes hand in hand with healing the gut, liver, and reproductive system. It is a holistic whole body approach thats specific to the individual. However, the first step is to toss the toxins and start feeding your skin quality, nourishing products!
I am beyond excited to offer my creations to my community! It is a dream come true. Thank you for the continuous encouragement, love, and support! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them!
Health is wealth!
