imageAbout the ingredients

One of the chosen ingredients in this facial toner is Organic Witch Hazel for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Witch hazel is a great natural treatment for skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema and works very well for removing excess oils from the skin. Witch Hazel shrinks your blood vessels which helps tighten the skin and helps conditions such as puffiness under the eyes. Because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, it can also be used as an aftershave to prevent razor bumps and protect knicks and cuts

imageOrganic Mint Leaves are also anti-inflammatory and soothing to dry, itchy skin, bug bites and is an excellent cleanser. Some additional benefits of the organic mint leaves and peppermint essential oil in this toner is that during hot summer months, it can be refrigerated and used as a facial refresher by spritzing all over the face (avoid eyes) throughout the day as needed for an instant cooling, soothing sensation. Essential OilsRose Absolute rejuvenates and moisturizes skin. The oil has soothing anti-inflammatory properties, and because of its astringent properties, rose absolute oil can be used on mature and loose skin to help tone and strengthen it. This oil can  also help delay the  signs of aging like wrinkles and other age marks as well as firming up areas of the body such as under eyes, neck and chest areas.

RosesOrganic Rose Petals are wonderful for soothing irritated skin and reducing redness, for treating acne and breakouts because of their anti-bacterial properties and because roses naturally contain oils, they are great for maintaining skin moisture, making your skin soft and giving it a healthy glow. Roses work well to help control excess oils for those with oily skin and helps to unclog pores.

What is your why?

What is your why?

Think about this for a second; What motivates you to do the things you do? For example: why do you make art, choose a specific field of work, or wake up everyday to do whatever you do? How long have you known what you wanted to do?

Healing

I’ll go first and tell you why I do what I do. I am a lifelong learner, I love learning new things, doing things I have never done before, being creative, going places I’ve never been and meeting new and different people. This is a big part of what I live for. I want to hear about a person’s experiences that are different from mine, I want to have friends who have dealt with various issues in life, because one way or another we have all dealt with challenges, no matter our background. Each one of us has become stronger, smarter, and wiser because of it. It is so humbling to hear someone else’s struggles and realize that things have not been so bad for you even during times you thought that your life was over.

Growing up in two different cultures has been a blessing for me because I can say that I know exactly what it is like to live in two completely different worlds. I was born and raised in a place where people struggle everyday for access to their basic needs because of poverty, lack of education, and lack of opportunity. You see, these people will do anything dignified to support themselves and their entire family and relatives, distant and close.

Culture

This place has taught me to be strong because you have to fight to survive, therefore I learned how to become creative with the little I had. Here I also learned that despite the belief that females were inferior to males, women were actually the strongest people I had ever seen in my life (they cooked, cleaned, carried children on their backs while working the fields, did the laundry without the help of machines, mended clothes and ironed them, tended to the farm animals, cared for their elderly parents, their husbands and their husbands’ parents and on and on and on nonstop); but those women got up day after day and started the cycle over again, without giving up. They smiled, they gave it their all and they would give the shirts off their backs to the first stranger in need without hesitation. I couldn’t do half of what these women do!

Now this second culture I’ve known for most of my life has taught me that life can be so much easier when we (men and women) are equally educated. There are many ways a person can get an education and then work to help support themselves and their family, if that is what they want. This culture taught me that there is no limit to what I can do, if I am willing to do the work and find the opportunities, there might be challenges along the way but they are available. I have learned that me being a woman is not a handicap. Only I can limit myself  in this culture.Freedom

Both of these cultures have their pros and cons and they both made me experience life in completely opposite ways for the most part. These experiences are my “why?”; these two points of views are the reason why I learn new things. My key to freedom is learning and growing, and creativity gives me freedom. However, I am not satisfied with just my freedom, I want to help others find theirs, and I want to inspire people such as myself that feel that there is something inside of them that has been fighting to come to light. I want to help someone to read one word, draw one line, write one sentence,  pick up a paint brush, hear a song, dream one dream that ignites a fire in them that shines brightly on that something they are meant to be. I want dreamers like me to know that they can do anything they set out to do, it’s us who limit ourselves!
