Share the journey
With a diagnosis of MS in 1998 it was time to consider what I was doing to contribute to my dis-ease. Were my personal daily choices of thoughts, food, household products and skincare impacting my health? With more and more evidence pointing in this direction and the unwaivering belief that I didn't want to be a victim, it was time to empower myself and make daily choices that would benefit me, not harm me.
This began a journey which included the use of organic skincare but it was difficult to find a store where you could find (and sample) an extensive range of natural skincare products.
Even the trusted Health Food stores would disappoint. A limited range to choose from and with a scrutiny of the ingredients list it was evident many 'natural' skincare products suffered from Greenwash Marketing and didn't really belong on the shelf of a 'Health' Food store - and anyway they were a Health 'Food' store. Where could I find somewhere that took natural and preferably organic skincare seriously?
In early 2011 there was a small add in a local newspaper advertising a natural skincare store for sale.....the store was only 3 months old but the owners had other dreams to follow - this was my opportunity.
After purchasing the business I rebranded the store Organic & Eco to better reflect the vision I had for the store and the range of products I wanted to share with the rest of the community.
