WHEN

I previously owned a cosmetics company, and was itching to start something new, so I always had ideas floating around in my head. This past summer I traveled to Mexico and I burned my face very badly. When I came back the first thing I started doing was trying to find natural skincare remedies. I found a lot of the recipes that I came across incorporated something I most likely had in my kitchen cupboard. I started researching more about different herbs/spices and how they could help to clear up the skin. I remember telling my friends I wanted something that felt luxurious, smelled amazing and was good for the skin. I remember using the phrase "dessert for the skin" - most desserts are baked, so the two went hand in hand to me. There were quite a new name options I threw out there, but this was the one that felt the most fitting.

WHY

Everything is made with so much love. I've really put my all into this and I just want to create an experience for my customers. If using one of my scrubs gives them that reason to take an extra 5 minutes in the shower for themselves then I've done my job.

FAVORITE

My current fave is the Vanilla Pumpkin Chai Crumble. It smells as good as it sounds, and it's just great for my skin.
