How long have you been interested in making beauty products?
I've been making my own beauty products for a long, long time - I have terrible allergies, and as a teenager, I developed a rash on my face that was like an awful scaly burn, along with acne. My doctor had me taking pills, and using two different prescriptions on my face, with little help. Then, my family moved, and it all went away on its own - my new doctor told me it was most certainly due to airborne allergies in my former climate. Since then, I've discovered that I'm allergic to many ingredients in soap, hair products, and makeup. And I was so Goth! I had to stay out of the sun since I couldn't use white foundation anymore, just activated charcoal in petroleum jelly on my eyes and lips. That was a lot of makeup to have to give up, but I'm thankful now, I'm 41 and my skin is still very smooth, and wrinkle free!

Where do you get your inspiration?
Everywhere! My new line has scents inspired by music, the scents of holidays and spring, flowers, and some of my favorite beverages. I'm heavily influenced by the seasons, I have a huge garden and my own chickens, in the winter there's a lot of dried herbs, pumpkin, and things tend to be a little, well, gloomy - in spring and summer, the colors just become brighter, more citrus, it's just more alive for me in the summer.

What other things do you enjoy doing?
I love knitting and crochet, I really love all fiber arts and have recently begun learning to spin my own yarn. I also love riding my motorcycle, and spending time with my hubby and kids, and the chickens - I have 12, and they are just beautiful and sweet. I also have a full time job outside of my Etsy business, but it really doesn't feed my soul, so I'm really thankful for the creative outlet, and being able to share a bit of that.

Thanks so much Rhea!
