What is Just Add Love?

Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is my first blog post (!!!!) and I am so excited to introduce you to my company and share with you what I will be writing about in this blog. 

Just Add Love, LLC is a company that creates and sells organic, herbal skin care products. I create each product from start to finish in my kitchen. My products are infused with locally grown herbs and combined with various plant oils and butters to create nourishing products for the skin.  I test each product throughout the formulation process to ensure I've created an effective and soothing product for my skin. The final step in the formulation process is to have my friends and family test the formulations and provide feedback.  I find it very helpful when making new formulas to know what other people want in their skincare products.

Along with creating skin care products Just Add Love aims to promote self-love and self-compassion by encouraging our customers to take time out of their day to pay attention to themselves. Even taking just a minute to care for yourself by applying lip balm to chapped lips or salve to dry hands is an act of self-care. In our busy lives we often have a difficult time making sure we are taking care of ourselves. Small physical actions of self-compassion can encourage us to take larger steps to love ourselves.

The purpose of this blog is to spread the word about my company and our products. It gives me a space to communicate with potential customers. I will also be using this blog to talk about the chemistry and traditions behind herbal medicine. As a chemist I enjoy looking at how herbs work on a molecular level in our bodies and how they can actually help. Unfortunately, herbs are not often high on the list for research due to lack of funding, so I will do my best to find and share peer reviewed, reliable articles about the medicinal properties of herbs.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog, and I appreciate any and all feedback. I am so excited to go on this journey with you and share everything I am learning about herbs and self-compassion. This is my first ever blog and I am definitely still learning.

Next time I will be explaining the what's, why's, and how's of the solid lotion bar.

Please find me on Facebook or my Etsy shop.
