My mom was always a firm believer in taking care of your skin naturally, and she had amazing skin. She was always mixing up something from the actual kitchen and putting it on her face, or cleaning her face and neck with aloe and flaked coconut of all things! Back then, we didn't have Google, we had trial and error, passed down knowledge of what worked and what didn't, and a lot of nonsense too! My grandmother told me to rub lemon in my hair and sit out in the sun and I'd get pretty highlights. All I got was sticky hair and a sunburn, which my mother promptly treated with aloe and what I now know was a calendula paste. But, it instilled in me a thirst to research exactly what did work. As my skin changed from teenage oily skin, through pregnancies, stress, different climates, my 30s, 40s and now 50s and menopause, my face care regimen has changed hugely. I am using a lot of sea buckthorn oil, neroli, chamomile, and our Ylang-Ylang Neroli cream. I am a firm believer in herbs and essential oils, and like my mother, I'm a firm believer that aloe really is a near cure-all! Come check out our line of face cleansers, oils, lotions, scrubs & toners. Inspired by my mom and nature!
