This venture is the culmination of many factors. The biggest factor in development of all these products was to relieve personal pain. I suffer from a rare disease called Trigeminal Neuralgia. Commonly coined “the suicide disease” as it delivers intense facial nerve pain. There is no known cure. There are different variations of the disease which effects the facial nerves causing them to fire pain signals to the brain which can be felt as burning, stabbing, shock, teeth pulling, kick in the face, bone crushing type pain. 1 to all nerves can be affected. When triggered from known sources such as touch, wind, barometric pressure, stress etc attacks can last from minutes to severe cases like mine which cause constant chronic pain. I was diagnosed with Bilateral Type 2 TN accompanied by Occipital Neuralgia which most of you know as Chronic Migraine. I spent much time trying to find help from the medical system and have tried everything from prescription meds to 2 brain stem operations called Microvascular Decompression. I did get some relief from the surgery on the left side and I can now go outside without a face wrap but no matter what I still have daily pain.
I decided to take matters into my own hands and developed these products.
My creams are formulated to be light weight for daily facial and all over use.
The Chill Stick was formulated originally for my mother in law who suffers from Osteoarthritis in her back and knees. While waiting for her first knee replacement she was down to bone on bone and was taking Prescription medication that was reducing her kidney function severely. As she also suffers from high blood pressure she is limited to using topical anti-inflammatories. We tried everything but unfortunately not even prescription strength cut through the pain. I set to work. It took over 2 years to perfect what is now the Chill Stick but 4 years on a wait list for knee replacement is nothing new to us Canadians. Now at 80 years old, my mother in law only uses topicals and is off the prescription meds and is no longer throwing money down the drain on products that don’t live up to their claims.
I have formulated & used these products personally for almost 2 decades. I use organic chemistry, natural herbs, and organic naturally sourced materials. The closer to nature the better & more pure. In this day & age we are accustomed to the harsh chemicals, detergents, & many harmful & toxic substances as the majority of cosmetics & over the counter remedies are unregulated nor tested. Many think that because they are on a store shelf these products are safe. This is not the case. There are hormone disrupting preservatives & countless other toxins hiding in plain site. Many companies use marketing to disguise their bad practices with blanket statements such as, "we now use safe synthetics" to distract. Instead of reading labels & avoiding products I began changing the way I consumed by using my talents to provide my family pure, safe products that I didn't have to skimp on quality to save money. I am a product girl & love to treat myself to the nicest things available. This is what I'm passing on to you. I have very high standards and expect my products not only to perform their function but to go that extra mile. I don't believe in using 3 products when it can be done with 1 & I don't mind paying a little more for quality raw materials because you do get what you pay for. Quality Organic small batch handmade products. Not mass produced garbage made for profit.
