One of my favorite areas to dabble in is making personal care and beauty products.
It combines my love for creatively working with my hands with learning about how natural ingredients come together to nourish the body. What I didn’t anticipate when I started creating these lotions and potions was how it would make me feel and look.
Radiant natural beauty is the delightful byproduct of these dabbles. With ritual, intention, and play I believe we show our bodies - and ourselves - the appreciation we often reflect to others.
And in return, we glow.
I’ve been writing you here for a while, and chances are you haven’t been with me since the very beginning. So below you will find some of my favorite dabbles that are both fun to make and will nurture your natural beauty.
