“You’ve always had the power my dear, You just had to learn it for yourself.”
Glinda — The Wizard of Oz
In 2007 I started “going organic”. I began paying attention to what I was eating and using on my skin. I realized that buying organic food was much easier than finding organic and natural bath care. Having suffered from eczema all of my life, I needed something effective that didn’t contain potentially harmful additives. I spent years researching natural ingredients and their effects on various skin ailments. After a lot of mixing and matching, I knew I formulated something special: a line of nutrient-rich skin care that smelled as amazing as it performed.
It felt good knowing my new skincare routine was pure, that nothing synthetic was penetrating my millions of little pores and entering into my being. The positive change in my skin was so obvious that I convinced everyone who loved me to try it and provide some feedback. Knowing the people who REALLY love you have no filters, I braced myself for constructive criticism and was prepared to implement whatever changes necessary to perfect my products. I was thrilled to learn that not only did everyone love it, but they wanted me to sell it.
Now it was time to figure out how to take what I created to the next level. I picked out a name for the company, bought some jars, bottles and labels and made a website, which was a big deal for me at the time. I got everything I needed in place and then I prayed. I prayed that God would prepare me for what was to come. Open me up to receive the life that I wanted, to own a successful business producing a product that was good, healthy, and a true benefit to people.
Back in 2009, I launched my products in a few store fronts and acquired some sales but ultimately, it failed. Little did I know that my prayer was being answered. I always knew that I had a really good, legitimate product but deep down, felt a piece of the puzzle was missing. Since then, I’ve had a baby and continued to work my 9 to 5, keeping the thought of the business in the back of my mind… Until now.
I realized that the missing piece of my puzzle was connection of the human spirit. My company needed to represent what I ultimately wanted to share with others: community, spiritual awareness, and a total experience that cares for your mind, body, and soul. After researching the science behind aromatherapy, I paired together scents that would take me to a place of serenity, but also work well as a team. I made sure that the positive affirmations on my packaging were translated into different languages so that women around the globe could feel recognized, included, and connected. For years I have been providing myself with whatever I need to guide me to my sacred space of well being, just by taking care of my skin. Whether it’s gratitude, energy, empowerment, or restoration – I just reach for it in my shower. And now you can, too.
I honestly use these products every single day of my life. I have replaced all lotions with my body oil, which I apply immediately after the shower. I treat myself to the sugar scrub twice a week, use the balm on the soles my feet and as makeup remover (the skin around my eyes has thanked me for it). My products are even safe for my little one. Daily applications of the body balm on my 2 year old have greatly reduced the need for her medicated eczema ointment, spanning several weeks between uses.
It has taken me 7 years to come up with what is now I AM Organic. After years of meticulous research, hard work, and trial-and-error, I couldn’t be more excited or proud to finally showcase this wonderful product in the way that I always envisioned it. We are all here longing for connection in some way. I promise you that if you open yourself up and give yourself the opportunity, you can care for your skin, yourself, and inhale the beauty of life through the scents of I AM Organic.
