Why did you start your business and how long have you been running it?
I am a Qualified and Experienced Integrative Pharmacist & Holistic Health Professional, Organic Cosmetic Formulator & Tutor, Minerals Therapist, Author, Artist and Blogger. I am passionate about Holistic Health, Wellness & Beauty and I hope to share my Universe & Knowledge with you beautiful people out there in the world!
I designed all my products with utmost care and aim to help people improve their lives by offering natural solutions to everyday therapeutic and beauty issues through the use of natural ingredients.
My Mother sadly passed away from Lung Cancer despite not having smoked a single day in her life. Whatever we surround ourselves with affects our overall health and well-being. This also includes what we eat and what we apply on our skin and hair. That is why I find that it is so important to include natural ingredients instead of the many synthetics used in many everyday products we use in our daily lives.
These are the many reasons that drove me to study with formulation experts and research more about creating Natural Skincare & Body Products as well as Natural Therapeutic Potions for Beauty, Health & Wellness.
All Our Products are 100% Australian Owned & Made from All Natural Ingredients from Botanicals You Can Trust
Our products are Cruelty Free & Handmade with Love through the beautiful combination of Art and Science by Me, our Organic Skincare Formulator and Integrative Pharmacist
I am also interested in career and business opportunities to amalgamate my skills and experience into a holistic approach to healing and helping people and building a community of like-minded people who have a passion for helping themselves and others using holistic practices.
I am also an active fundraiser & philanthropist for supporting all Animals, The Lung Foundation as well as Cancer Support & Research.
Every month, I will be teaching workshops and writing interesting articles about Health, Wellness, Beauty, Recipes and my own experiences and a glimpse into my professional and personal life as an Integrative Health Professional and Organic Formulator. It is simple to subscribe to our tips and tricks into a healthier way of living and embarking on a journey of self-love and sharing that love with others.
