I make natural skincare made on our certified property where we grow calendula.  It is transformed in infused oil which is use in the making of the products.  Calendula is a medicinal herb, specialist of the skin, perfect to nurture and repair as it is rich in antioxydant and anti-inflammatory.

Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?

I created the business from the desire to supply my four daughters with natural skincare.  Also a love for medicinal herbs and growing on the property. I came from Canada in 1989 after completing a nursing degree, working as a nurse then research assistant.  Relocating the family on a property and while studying herbalism I combined the love of growing, using medicinal herbs and making fresh products.
