A Connection to Self
The benches cleared, our bottles set out with a bowl and spoon, the ingredients and some water. It is simple. We blend and start the photo shoot in natural light. Conversations begin, we run through the process and talk about the elements...together we work on ways to best capture blending our face masque, the sensory journey, the textures and the ritual. Last weekend, my friend's mother Linda, came in to help and we talked while mixing and blending in her kitchen, snapping away on the camera. I contemplated that this activity of gathering and making things that heal has been part of our story since the beginning. When we were happy with the consistency, we started applying the face masque and suddenly Linda fell silent and with her hands to her face, eyes closed and breathed deeply the aromatic botanicals. It's in this moment that we know that we have succeeded in delivering our promise. A connection to the Self.
