MARCH INSPO & THOUGHTS:
I think what I find most inspiring about Green Beauty (aside from nature's fab ingredients keeping us safe from pesky toxins) is the super support the industry provides for each other and these (more than often women owned) small businesses to be so successful. The stories are really amazing, and small companies like Yoshimomo, which I discovered on ETSY about 4 years ago, and which now has expanded so successfully and recently has been featured in Vogue Mag, really show how important self care and clean preventative skincare have become to us (and how much more educated we are choosing to become). Annie Tevelin at SkinOwl has been another great inspiration for me (I used to carry her amazing oils at LLB).
Don't ever stop dreaming, believe in yourself and your missions, take care of yourself - and please keep supporting these amazing pioneers (shop small y'all!) devoting themselves to bringing us green beauty, holistic health, a healthy lifestyle, mindfulness, love and respect for each other, delicious clean foods and so much more in a time when big companies are doing everything to sell you their big promise-laden "instant-fix" money-makers instead.
