After years of cleaning, months of research, weeks of planning and hours of staring at the computer screen, I am finally starting a blog. Oh my. If you are actually reading this, you are probably related to me somehow, pressed the wrong key when typing the actual address you wanted, OR you want to learn more about me and the company I have just launched.
Should I tell you a little about that? Ok, well... it all started about 15 months ago when I joined a lovely little direct sales comany called Chartreuse. Ever heard of it? Nope, didn't think so. Hence the reason it is no longer in existence today. They made wonderful organic products, which I used, worshiped and sold like a champ...until they went out of business six months ago. What a shock! I was very sad and dissapointed, but I didn't want that little roadblock to stop me from progressing on what I now call "my green journey."
After using and promoting all these wonderful, all-natural products for a year, I was totally hooked! I knew I could never go back to using the conventional beauty and cleaning products I had been using before. After some soul searching, I decided that I really loved promoting natural and organic products. I couldn't find another company that I really identified with. I started doing a lot of research and decided that maybe I could make some of these products for myself.
Along this path, I also discovered essential oils (more on this in another post). I had no idea that essential oils could be used for so many things. What an amazing combinaton-natural and organic ingredients, coupled with the amazing power of essential oils. I was hooked! The former owner of Chartreuse was generous enough to share the recipes for the wonderful cleaners that they made. I could make them myself, and it was SO EASY! That was the start to my new company, Essential8.
Boy, I'll tell ya...this whole let's-start-a-business-thing is a lot of work! You have to make products, develop a logo, do social media, start a website.... the list goes on! The logo is in the works, Etsy page is under construction, here's the website. I am trying to cram as much as I can into the next few weeks before school starts again.
Thanks for stopping by, and hey... if you're still actually reading this, post a comment, and maybe I'll send you a free sample. :)
