My journey can be summed up as transitioning from a life of toil to oil. I spent the majority of my adult life working tirelessly at a corporate job which left minimal time for friends and family. The creative joys I used to make time for were being consumed by a demanding career that stifled my creativity and cheerful personality. I thought work was everything and I made a mistake of letting it define me for several years.
In 2016 I was involved in a car accident where I suffered a brain injury which made it impossible for me to work for a year. As part of my recovery, I started to make products that made me feel better and look healthier. I also rediscovered essential oils and aromatherapy. Subsequently, I started making natural oil based products to give to family and friends. Doing these things together utilized all of my senses and made me feel really good and accomplished. I realized that my mind, body, and spirit no longer needed to suffer.
Now that I am slowly recovering and accepting my 'new self', I realize the importance of doing things that truly make me happy. And what makes me happy is to proudly and humbly hand make every concoction for you. This is why I created Curious Concoctions.
