What was once just a hobby turned into an actual business after friends began raving about the homemade skincare creations made by Valerie. With a passion for healthy, chemical-free skin care products and aromatherapy blends, Valerie began formulating products while working with children in residential care. Her first and most popular blend - Calming Magic Mist - was thoughtfully crafted for children in residential care who had difficulty falling asleep. This blend was created as a pillow mist to aid traumatized children in falling asleep at night. Ingredients were carefully selected based on their compatibility and observed effects of relaxation.
After successfully formulating this effective blend, Valerie continued experimenting with different essential oils to come up with complex blends to facilitate desired effects for the individual user. She has nearly 50 different essential oils to work with to create well-rounded scents from a variety of base, middle, and top notes. Continual experimentation into new products that are vetted by family and friends before offered to the public, Valerie strives to offer a finished product that is sure to impress.
Valerie primarily sources ingredients for her products from Mountain Rose Herbs, an Oregon based company dedicated to organic agriculture, sustainable farming, fair trade commerce, non-GMO crops, zero waste production, and many other earth friendly causes. She is proud to offer high quality products that are organic when possible and free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates (SLS/SLES/ALS).
"It is a sincere pleasure to formulate custom blends or sets to meet individual needs. I can create custom labels on current products for special events like baby showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings, birthday parties, or any occasion. Contact me for more info or to make a request!"
