Everything, Tina. Everything.
When I created Crowbar Apothecary, it was not an idea I had overnight - in fact, strangely enough, it was inspired from a number of years of self-doubt, disordered eating, burn-out and just a general disconnection with myself. I'm sure you're asking yourself what the heck this has to do with the launch of an all-natural, clean moisturizing bar? I invite you to read on....
I consider myself very lucky. In those times of feeling low, I had a desire to feel better. So I set out on a journey to help myself - I read book after book, listened to podcast after podcast (for those that know me well they know i love a good self-help book!), dabbled in meditation, learned more about mind-body connection, and learned to rid my fridge of processed foods and replace them with foods that would actually nourish me. Looking back, I suppose these were little acts of self-love - and lo & behold, I began to feel better and better and better and better. I began to fill my cup up, I began to listen to myself first before others, I began to see the synchronicities that come from a mindset of gratitude, I began to see that living in service opens up so many doors (and is a great tactic to move past procrastination) - and I began to see that eating real foods and applying beauty products with 'real' ingredients made a real difference.
And so I'm on a mission to help others discover these same benefits. I suppose Crowbar Moisturizing Bar is a little gift from me to you in hopes that you'll partake in a bit of self-love if you so choose. You can rest assured it's made with the purest ingredients and with the purest of intentions - to nourish your body, your mind, your soul and our earth.
Love your skin...but love yourself first. It's a life-long journey, and one i'm still on.
Happy Valentine's Day from me to you!
