Last May, I decided that on my birthday I would dedicate the day to some well-deserved self care.
(Of course, we should make self-care a priority every day, but ESPECIALLY on your birthday!)
Ahem! Hello, gorgeous. I'm talking to you. *elbow*
So, I went to get a body polish and facial from a salon that uses a very well known and high priced product line. As a Certified Herbalist and Registered Aromatherapist, things like skin care always interest me. Especially this particular high end product line, which I know started off as an organic, plant-based company who try to stick to their roots.
Typically, I use my own all-natural skin care products. I procure the ingredients, research them, make it and use it - sometimes even infusing my own oils with herbs. (You can check out my facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizers here!)
As I laid back getting ready for my facial, my technician says “Who do you use on your face?". I asked why she was asking. She said "Because you have the most beautiful skin to come in my chair in the past 5 years!"
I then told her what I did for a living and what I used. She was thrilled. She started speaking about drug store bands and how many of them, even the ones I used to use religiously before my own, would strip the natural oils off of your skin. 😞
Then she said, “Homemade is best. No preservatives, no chemicals... just natural oils working with your skin to clean and moisturize the way nature intended."
I left walking out going: "Homemade is best? Homemade is best!" 30 years in the business and she says homemade is best.
I was reminded and proud that homemade is my thing. I am small batch. I use all-natural ingredients. My facial line is homemade, made with love and backed by science.
And with a compliment like that, I had to be doing something right!
So my question is, do YOU struggle to find a natural solution to skincare? Or can't find the right blend that works on your oily/dry/normal/combo/uniquely yours skin? I think I can be of some help.
Because I am so excited about my skin, I want you to be as well. So I am going to give you a FREE 15-minute skin consult. AND after the free consult, I'll throw in an extra 10% off any of my all-natural facial products in my shop.

Since the last time I wrote, our whole world changed. Life is “not normal”, it will never go back to “normal”.
Health has now become a political topic instead standing on its own. People are arguing over screens about things that are out of our control. Our happy hours are now Zoom meetings and people can decide if they want to wear pajama bottoms when they go to work meetings.
On the last day of class, we finished up the custom blends we had created for our clients that week, and were tasked with using Blossoming Heart blending tools from Robbie Zeck to create a special blend for our partners.
Recently, one of my best friends told me that music was my love language. That was a very profound statement to me when I realized the truth of it. I learned that week that a big part of my self-care, the world of the week for us, was sitting in my music room listening to my records.
I can’t believe I haven’t written to you since February. I had big plans - plans about happiness, growth and love. Now it's about survival, and for me, trying to find the silver lining in this cloud we find ourselves in. See, the second week in March was huge for me, and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it.
