Small seeds, first steps
Over the last 8 years I have been developing a range of cosmetics using plant based organic ingredients. It all started when I noticed signs of my skin ageing, I went into panic mode wondering how to stop it or delay it or at least make it look better! I saw a lot of adverts with young women on them telling me to use this or that product and I couldn't tell which was the one to use or what was in that would work. I booked in for a session of botox but I was too scared to have it done, chickened out and cancelled. After watching yet another advert with a 20something young woman telling me how good her skin looked after using X brand of cream I went to the kitchen to make myself a cup of coffee, on the way I passed all my essential oils (I had been an aromatherapist for 18 years) and stopped short - "you silly woman" I thought "you have all the oils here, why don't you make something for yourself?" Little did I know that this was the first step on a long journey!
