The Herbal Skincare Summit features 17+ wise women and men, who are sharing their expertise, inspiration, and practical tips about the power of plants for healthy, radiant skin. It will be a celebration of our herbal lineage and an opportunity to share our passions and knowledge – with a bit of old-fashioned storytelling thrown in for inspiration.
The more I go through the interviews, the more amazed I am at what an incredible event this has shaped up to be. I’ve produced online events before on a smaller scale, but this was a whole new ballgame–I had no idea what to expect, but I can tell you that how it’s turned out is better than I could have ever imagined. So I hope you join us!
One of the most exciting parts of the Herbal Skincare Summit is that it has sponsors!
I opened sponsorship opportunities to a very small pool of companies, because I’ll be honest–I’ve had companies approach me for sponsorships before that didn’t align with my philosophy and core business values, and that didn’t feel good to me.
So when Mountain Rose Herbs said yes to my VIP sponsorship offer, I was ecstatic because they are a company I’ve been doing business with for years, whose core values align with mine, and who I recommend all the time to my Create Your Skincare students as top quality one-stop shop for organic, ethically harvested, non-GMO, and fair trade herbal skincare ingredients and supplies such as dry herbs, carrier oils, essential oils, butters, waxes, antioxidants, bottles, jars, tubes–you name it.
Mountain Rose Herbs also has fantastic customer service and is happy to answer any questions about ingredient quality, purity, and sourcing if it’s not listed on their website. I remember I once had a question about the origin of their citric acid from a student, and they provided me with a detailed written analysis the very next day.
Mountain Rose Herbs also has an incredibly informative blog, which contains many recipes that have inspired me.
I thought I’d share a few of my favorites here to get you into the herbal skincare mood:
This one inspired one of the products in one of the gift sets I teach in the Bonus Module of Create Your Skincare. It gives so much more of a luxurious shaving experience than a foam. I’ve given it as gifts to the men in my life and they love it with a nice shaving brush. Works great for the body too!
Who doesn’t love a good oil serum these days? This one contains many of my favorite carrier oils, and I love the essential oil blend–it’s earthy and subtle, while still feminine.
just thinking about this one makes my hands feel soothed! Especially this time of year. Frankincense and myrrh are some of the most comforting ingredients for dry, chapped skin, and the addition of the other essential oils in this recipe balance out the aroma nicely (so you don’t constantly feel like you’re in church if that’s not your thing).
As I’ve confessed in the past, I have a bit of a lip balm addiction. I literally have one at arm’s length at all times. Part of the reason is that it is SO easy and inexpensive to make, with endless variations! But you want your lip balm to taste good, so that means that any flavorings need to be edible–which is why I love this vanilla cardamom one.
Though skincare is my specialty, I get asked about my hair all the time–that kinda comes with the territory when you have waist-length, straight hair. My biggest secret is leave-in conditioner, and I love using oils on the ends as a leave-in, because it coats the hair and gives shine–and as long as I use the right oils for my hair, it doesn’t feel weighed down. This is one of my favorite blends–and it also works well as a skin serum for certain skin combinations.
Those are just a few–but they have more!
Again, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Mountain Rose Herbs for supporting my Herbal Skincare Summit, and also for donating two amazing bonuses to our Virtual Swag Bag, which all attendees will receive. I’m so proud of this event and hope you can attend.
