The "Spark" that started it all
Twenty years ago I was introduced to essential oils and their healing properties. That sparked the beginning of my journey with using natural remedies to promote my health and over-all well-being. Having extremely sensitive skin along with allergies and managing eczema finding the “right” products that met my skin care needs was a challenge. After realizing the products that were ideal to use had harsh unnatural ingredients and synthetic fragrances it was clear they could no longer be a part of my daily self-care routine. Sixteen years ago I made the decision to take matters into my own hands and began creating products for myself.
Conversations about "Self-Care"
I've had countless conversations aka "healing" sessions with individuals from all walks of life. They would often ask "How do you maintain yourself?" and self-care came up quite often. Many would say "Getting my hair done, getting a mani-pedi or having a spa day is my self-care". I agree, these are wonderful ways to treat ourselves but it's not always convenient or affordable. Self-care is multi-faceted. We have to be aware of what and how we do even the subtle things in life. This awareness is vital to our mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
My products have been a consistent part of my daily self-care regimen because they help balance and nurture my overall well-being. Keeping them to myself was no longer an option and I knew it was time for others to experience them. In the fall of 2019 I decided to share my creations with individuals other than family. After hearing their experiences, receiving favorable feedback and orders shortly following, Care Filled Essentials was born.
Understanding the "Need"
The work of a woman is never done. I'm a wife and mother, who is also a nurse, professional artist and Reiki practitioner. I can multi-task but I'm not a superwoman. It's a challenge attempting to balance every aspect of life and I know I’m not alone when it comes to facing these challenges. I've been a support system and advocate for my SiStars because when you support the women you take care of the family!
"Self care is the best care one can give themselves and it’s important that we remember this as we move through this journey called life…….. May your heart be light while your spirit stays full!"
