The Journey To My Dream

 

as I sit here in gratitude for my life, for the people along my path and the businesses I’ve built, that little mountain in Peru called Chepén where I entered the world into a life of adversity seems a distant memory. Though it feels far away in thought and physical distance, the parts of me that grew strong, resilient, and determined were born out of that upbringing. I grew up in my grandparents’ home, a little girl surrounded by limitations yet holding onto big dreams.

I spent years becoming an expert on skin as I worked as an aesthetician, and it was time I put that skill to work and create gentle products that soothe and heal. I use the most natural ingredients; my desire is for my customers to use my products for self-care, to feel grounded, to enjoy the unique aromas. I purchase all of my healing herbs from Monterey, California. I followed my heart, and my vision led me to create Naturals Handcrafted. It’s important for me to deliver a beautiful product that I create with my own hands. My husband might find me awake in the middle of the night pouring love and healing into each and every product, because this isn’t work for me, it’s my passion. 

 

Over the last several months, I have been travelling throughout California and Las Vegas sharing Naturals Handcrafted at the Harvest Festivals, the Original Art & Craft Show. These shows are incredible. I am in awe of the amazing individuals I have the opportunity to meet, and my heart is so full as I witness my products bring so much joy to people’s lives. I know I am living my purpose when I see those smiles, receive more orders from the spas and salons, and hear back from customers about how my products deeply affect their life. The loving support of my husband and daughter fuel me with even more encouragement to continue sharing loving energy with the world. 

I believe in kindness and compassion and that everything begins with a thought. What began as a simple idea about how to bring earth’s natural essence and aromas for healing and peace through soaps, sugar scrubs, and candles has now expanded into more than I dreamed. I am dedicated to creating a myriad of healing products from blessing and chakra balancing candles to plant terrariums and cleansing smudge kits. My hope is that my vision continues to unfold and blesses others as much as I have been blessed.
