A Little Self-Care Goes A Long Way
Through my own experience with fad dieting, I struggled throughout my teenage years until finally realizing I was ultimately in charge of my health. I decided to study nutritional science in university, followed by holistic nutrition & herbal medicine. By learning about what we consume and how nutrients are metabolized in the body to promote optimal health fascinated me. This is where my journey and relationship with nutrition for preventative health and natural beauty began.
The concept of “beauty wellness” is not new and has become somewhat cluttered with products all promising to beautify from within. As a nutritional scientist, herbalist and product development expert, I built this site to help pull the “fact” from “fiction” so you can make the best informed choices for your own personal wellness journey.
I hope you enjoy it.

From Beverages, Functional Foods, Powders to Pills….
Nutraceuticals are natural health products formulated with actives commonly found in food or botanicals that offer a restorative and balancing action within the body. With focus on preventative health, these products are specially formulated to support targeted physiological systems, such as the immune, digestive, cardiovascular, joint/bone health to weight and stress management. An increasingly popular category of supplements to support healthy aging and natural beauty are Nutricosmetics. This type of natural health product generally contains ingredients to promote healthy skin, hair and nails, and protect the body from stressors that accelerate the aging process.
