Curious and Inspired First, my crocheting! My cousin was having a baby girl and I wanted to make her something unique. I always wanted to learn how to crochet and knit but had failed so many times before simply because the books confused me. I don't know how I thought of Youtube.com for help and I haven't stopped crocheting since! Riley, his baby girl, got a whole new wardrobe from me and the best part was that is was personalized just for her! I fell in love with crocheting and kept learning to make things, even cat toys with catnip in them :) My friends told me about Etsy.com and I opened my store so others could have the same personalized products! Etsy has been amazing adventure and I am so happy I opened my shop! Second came the body care items starting with lotions for my own sensitive skin. The frustration of buying high priced, chemical filled, and loaded with mineral oil lotions was insane (repeating the same thing over and over expecting different results!)! Although, I could buy sensitive skin lotion for 10x what it's worth... I felt cursed for life! Getting anti itch cream from family and friends as gifts was funny but getting old! To be honest, I don't know how I got my first recipe, Miracle Lotion, but thank God I was curious enough to look it up, print it out, and buy what was on that recipe list! I had no idea what an essential oil was and they are not new news! You can use them on your body, for aromatic reasons, and Internally for better health! Essential oils kick the chemicals out of skin care/hair car products and work like magic! When you choose essential oils, you are choosing oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and many can be safely applied to your skin when used diluted with a carrier oil. My Miracle Lotion recipe called for lavender essential oil and tea tree essential oil and honestly, that was the best money I had ever spent! After used my Miracle Lotion, I found myself in Heaven.. No itching, no allergic reaction, no greasy feeling, and I didn't have to apply it on my skin 100 times per day! My skin was glowing and flawless about the third day of using my homemade Miracle Lotion. That was it! I did my research and began making more products! Knowing I was not alone in the sensitive skin zone, full of resentment, I couldn't help but share this!! I am not going to make the prices high and be ridiculous, like the doTERRA company (Great products but what a rip off!!). I calculate my products and charge with honesty! If you have skin problems then you know the frustration of money hungry products. I'm here to tell you the truth and keep it simple! The donation part of my store is in honor of great man who passed away too soon after returning from his tour in Iraq,,Justin.M Sweeny (Army). Our Veterans need more help than they are given when they return from war. I miss you Justin.
