Re- Opening with a new product line mid May!!

One of the products leaked slightly in transit so was a little oily inside the basket and on some of the labels. Perhaps items could have been individually wrapped and packed tighter within the postage box.
living slower and living healthier
A few months before falling pregnant with my son, I experienced an early miscarriage. So when I fell pregnant again, I become paranoid and over careful about everything, including cleaning products and cosmetic chemicals. In the early months I would open all the windows and face away when cleaning, and I avoided painting my nails, dying my hair, or using acne creams. This developed into an interest in finding more natural alternatives to beauty products and cleaning. I was amazed just how many chemicals our in our lives everyday.
It is now a medically recognized fact that our body absorbs significant amounts of the toxic chemicals that we put on our skin. This build up of chemicals can lead to cancers, disease, birth defects and other problems. Basically, it just isn't good for us to keep smoothing ourselves in chemicals all the time!
After my son was born, I was mindful of what food and products where going into and onto my son's body, as well as my own. But it wasn't till I began researching 'slow living' that I also stumbled upon more and more info about all the chemicals in everyday products, and how it was actually fairly easy to create your own natural alternatives. I started making my own cleaning products and skin care products, and quickly found a joy in making these things myself and knowing exactly what was in them.
I had (and still am) been working as a freelance graphic designer, but with a busy toddler, who doesn't sleep much, and loves to bash my keyboard when I try to work, I was finding it rather hard to get very much work done. But I was finding when I made my own products, it was easy to do with him, I could work in the kitchen, and be on the go, attending to him, while whipping things up. This sparked the idea to start making natural skin products to sell.
Creating my own skincare range fills my desire to make things, my love of packaging and designing, my interest in natural alternatives, and an ability to make some money while still staying at home and caring for my son. (something I have always wanted to do as a mother).
So why 'Nourish and Nurture'?
The name is inspired by the fact, my driving force for making these products, is to provide better alternatives for my family, so that we are healthier and our bodies are happier.
It's inspired by that motherly instinct to protect my child.
To nourish with good food and body care that is chemical free.
And to nurture and bring him up with care and attention, and protect him from the bad things that can harm and pollute his growing body.
My products are safe for all the family. So a mother can hold her child close (or a carry a child in pregnancy) knowing her skin is not coated in chemicals and toxins are not seeping through her pores. Your children will not be lathered in hazardous chemicals that would build up in their bodies interfering with their development.
I highly recommend complementing the use of natural cosmetics with chemical free household cleaning.
So if you are looking for better skin care alternatives for your body, you will enjoy my lovingly handcraft range. And for more tips and a few tutorials to make some other cleaner products of your own, including household cleaning, you can follow my blog- http://tabithaemma.com/blog
