“An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.”

My love for all things pampering began as a young girl in a small Iowa town. My mom was a very successful "Avon Lady," and in those days that meant a lot of samples in the house of perfumes, lotions, lipsticks, you name it. Mom showed me what it was like to have a small business. I spent many hours helping her on her Avon route, dropping off sales flyers and delivering orders. At the time I didn't know it, but my internal fire for women small business was being kindled.
A few years after graduating college, I found myself managing a Garden Botankia store. Remember, them all you '90s people? I had so much fun trying All. The. Things. It was especially fun to soak in the huge claw foot tub in my first apartment on my own!
Fast forward to 2022 and my love for self-care products has only kept growing. My focus now is on ingredients that are good for us, good for our communities, and good for the planet.
