In 2007, with three young children and a family who was still heavily involved in the hospitality industry I decided it was time to fulfill a life long dream to train as a Beauty Therapist.
As a youngster in NZ there was no local beauty school so I completed a full time Secretarial course at my local Polytechnic instead.
I started my training at the College of Natural Therapies in Holgate NSW with Remedial Massage, Reiki and the following year moved on to the full beauty course. Beauty Therapy is very Science based and I really enjoyed the aromatherapy training (both massage and oils). This course ignited a passion for all things natural and opened up a whole new world of learning. I especially enjoy assisting people with different skin issues through more natural means. This training has lead to me creating a range of products that are all SLS, Paraben and Palm Oil Free. Is Animal Friendly, Vegan and with recyclable packaging.
There is some family history connected to my choice of the beautiful purple Iris as my business logo. When my mother Beverley was pregnant with me, she had to spent 3 months in hospital due to high blood pressure. On the day of my birth the Optical firm that my father Roger worked for sent a lovely bunch of Purple Irises as a gift. Ever since then we have celebrated significant family events with these gorgeous flowers!
I truly believe that what is absorbed into our skin has an affect on our health so with that in mind its always better to try and use more natural products, where possible. My range of products is currently available online, and at various markets and events on the Central Coast, Newcastle and sometimes in Sydney.
