My name is Maria Dale, and I am a certified aromatherapist, skin care consultant, avid homemade soap maker, formulations curator and beauty adviser with over 25 years experience.

I have always held a love and adoration for all things pertaining to botany. I am a firm believer that God has given us many great gifts that nature provides. Sadly, we sometimes overlook these wonderful blessings.

I love all things related to herbalism and aromatherapy, and have used essential oils for most of my life.

If you have any questions related to any of the products, please feel free to contact me for assistance!

My oldest daughter once had acne so bad that it was heart breaking to see her cry because of the “break outs” that she had on her face.  She was not even a “teen” yet, which was surprising because I thought only older teens had acne problems as me and many of my high school friends did not start having acne breakouts until after we were 14 or older, with a fortunate few having zero breakouts whatsoever.

My daughter also had a problem with store bought acne fighting products, because of her delicate and sensitive skin.  We once tried peroxide to help bring down a boil on her chin, and instead of bringing the boil down, the boil turned into a huge, ugly white scab looking bump.  It was scaly and horrifying to look at.  I cried like a baby when I saw what the peroxide had done to my daughters skin and I made up my mind right then and there to develop SOMETHING to help my daughters acne.

This something had to be formulated for sensitive skin, fight acne with zero chemical ingredients, and something that my daughter would be “brave” enough to try (especially now that she was not really trusting mommy to help again).

So I started researching ingredients I could use to formulate a bar of soap that was gentle enough for the face, that could sooth dry skin while cleansing oily skin, that was also loaded with ingredients known to help fight and heal acne.  I wanted something that would help prevent breakouts, and also help HEAL acne breakouts.

Over the course of a few months, I finally developed a soap recipe that not only did all of the above BUT that also had an extra bonus, it’s lather was so thick and creamy that it could be used as a shaving / shampoo bar of soap too!

My daughter started using the soap and within weeks her skin was looking much better!  No, her skin never was completely free of acne until she was older, but it cleared her skin up so well that she “fit in” with her peers better because many zits went to the typical teen zit count of one or two zits every now and then which was something we have all encountered during our teen years.

I am a firm believer in using the wonderful herbs and essences that God has provided us here on planet Earth, to improve our health, lifestyle and appearance by creating various recipes and combinations of ingredients to help keep our skin toned, firm, smooth and soft.

We can create our own concoctions, or of course, purchase products that have been formulated by large corporations that have invested thousands, if not millions, in developing products that are designed to do many things from fighting acne to diminishing wrinkles.

As individuals, we each find some flaw that we do not like with our appearance.  Sometimes these flaws can be eliminated or diminished with the aid of beauty products, sometimes not.  The issue is not to remove the flaw, but instead, to learn to love your skin no matter the flaws it may have.

Confidence is the first step towards a more beautiful you, and that’s the main ingredient that one should always work on developing before anything else!

I created this website to help you better understand how to pamper your skin and to help you learn to love YOU more each day!  It doesn’t matter if you are feeling down because you have noticed a few grey hairs and a new wrinkle appearing, or because you are having problems with acne.

I want to help you find things to help improve your mood first, and then to help improve your skin!

If you have any questions, or would like help with anything that is skin care related, please feel free to pop an email to me!  I will work with you to help you find something that you will LOVE!
