There was a lot to motivate me to start Live Botanical and there was a lot that was holding me back. I am a work in progress and I don’t look like your typical herbalist or skin care creator - at least that is what I told myself (and sometimes I still do). We live in a world where women are judged on their appearance so much more than the content of her true beauty; the light inside expressing the goddess she is: intelligent, strong, spirited, compassionate, nurturing, sensual, adventurous and peaceful.
With Live Botanical I wanted to create products that are inspired by more than the practicality of how they can help your skin, though very important, I wanted more to invoke something deeper.
Each collection focuses on specific elements (earth, air, fire and water) to highlight the complex and amazing beings we are.
The lesson I am learning and hope to instill in all my products is that you are beautiful just the way you are. Self-care is different for all of us. I live life through my senses so working on products that focus on scent, touch and sight is good place to start.
