I’ve always been a ‘greenie’ in spirit, but that may be because I am a bonafide child of the hippie era. The very first steps of my cosmetics-making journey were taken when I was in my teens. A ‘How to’ book caught my interest and it wasn’t long before I could pronounce my first lip balm a success. The glorious scent of beeswax and the magical process of turning a few simple ingredients into something useful had me hooked.
As time passed, I wanted to learn more and be able to develop my own products. This started an ongoing path of self study in ingredients and production methods. My primary test group: me and my immediate family. Friends and family have followed my progress over the years and voiced requests for all kinds of different products. Each has been approached as an interesting challenge, and the many successful results (along with the fails) helped fuel my passion to continue.
