I’m always inspired by people who look after everyone else and yet still “take” – not “find” – the time to look after themselves. We live in such a fast-paced world that we are oftentimes too busy as family and community members, neighbours, workers, volunteers and caregivers, to remember to nurture “us.”
The email below arrived in my in-box this morning. I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it would inspire you to carve out a few quiet moments to be good to yourself, too.
I stopped by your booth at the One of a Kind Christmas Show last month and picked up a tube of your Lavender & Balsam balm I am on my feet outside all day at work and was looking for something to soothe my tired feet and calves so that I could get a good night’s sleep.
As soon as I got home and applied the balm, my feet started to warm up – so much so that for the first time in years, I didn’t need to wear socks to bed! I have continued to use your balm every night and haven’t once woken up in the middle of the night with painful cramps in my arches and calves (something that used to happen a lot).
I love the big, wide, roll-on applicator and how soft my feet feel, without any greasy residue. I thank you and my feet thank you.

When I was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic 30 years ago, I had a hard time finding products I felt good about putting on my feet. So, I created our line of luxurious but accessible skincare products to pamper my whole body and yours. I am so delighted that Anna took the time to treat her feet to a little TLC with our Lavender & Balsam balm.
Wishing you happy feet and a healthy new year peppered with lots of little “you” moments,
