After twenty years of professional career in the medical field, I decided to focus on nature plants, their actions, their beauties, their utilities, following several formations.
Nature, in particular the plant world is wonderful, breathtaking, surprising.
In front of all the pleasure that it brought me, I wished to share it with my entourage and more widely.
Why make natural products?
On the one hand for the love of plants. For centuries, the use of plants has required minute, empirical and then scientific studies in the modern era to verify their therapeutic properties and their safety. It took culture to tame nature, both literally and figuratively. The plants have a sweet and deep action by the synergy of all the different substances they possess.
And on the other hand, when we look at the labels of cosmetics of large retailers and major brands, we become aware of the chemical composition of the latter. And we apply all this on our face and our body.
It is true that these products smell wonderfully good, have a pleasant texture, a creamy foam, have an optimal life, etc., …
Yet in these products there are very few active ingredients, plants, the percentage of plants contained in them is minimal compared to that of petrochemical derivatives and other chemicals harmful to health.
These twenty years in medical, to wash my hands more than 30 times a day, with soaps that damage the skin, have also participated in this choice to create soft soaps and also suitable for heavy use.
I chose to make my own products first hand for myself, my children, my husband, as well as for my family and close friends. The products that I bought did not suit me and a complete misunderstanding of the list of incoming ingredients in the composition.
Now I know exactly what contains my jar of cream, shower gel, shampoo, soap, …
I have accumulated several years of experience in training, as well as looking for good ingredients, good methods.
Everything I make, I test it on me, my family, my friends.
I followed my training in the laboratory of this establishment, CFPPA Saint Flour in France (Center for Professional Training and Agricultural Promotion) where are designed, tested and manufactured cosmetic products. He obtained: “the quality cosmetic establishment fit for the established safety.” And some are shipped regularly to Japan.
This laboratory is in full expansion, and benefits greatly from media intervention.
I love nature, it gives us everything we need, especially to make our products.
This is before our eyes and often we do not know the link between the plant in its raw state (leaves, flowers, bark, roots, flower buds), the therapeutic qualities and the finished product.
For centuries, in Antiquity, the Egyptians, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM),
Ayurvedic medicine used plants and their powers to maintain their body internally and externally.
As part of a conscious ecological approach, the containers of certain cosmetics (cleaning set) are made of recycled paper, eg cement bag.
The packaging for transporting these cosmetics is made from recycled paper, for example a cement bag.
Soap labels are made of elephant dung paper, coconut fiber string.
Conclusion: this whole chain contributes at my level to a respectful behavior of the environment.
All our products are elaborated with plants, in the form of powder, infusion, decoction, oily macerate, aqueous, glycerine and hydro glycerine, mother tincture, in order to use the active ingredients of the different parts of the plants (flowers, stems, leaves, roots).
We use fresh or dried plants, to establish the best formulation of each product to respect and pamper your body.
The benefit of these methods is the extraction of nutrients from the plant for a more intense action of plant active ingredients.
The impact on the planet is reasoned.
Cultivating, harvesting, using plants in organic farming is for me a priority.
Respect for Nature, Earth, Biodiversity and Man is essential.
The raw materials introduced in our recipes are for the most part from Sri Lanka.
Preservatives are natural.
Some products are better preserved in fridge. We favored an adapted container so that the products remain effective.
Our products are scented not to use synthetic perfume but only natural food products and / or essential oils in small quantities
to avoid possible allergen / allergies.
Essential oils are alive, so products can change color over time. It’s perfectly normal. This does not alter its virtues.
Healthy skin and hair is an indicator of overall good health. Many French women therefore make it a point to take care of their skin while not relying that heavily on makeup. Many of them spend time treating it naturally and ensure that their skin is as healthy as they are. Looking your best naturally is something that many French people believe in.
We can infuse fresh or dried plants.
Pour boiling water over the desired amount of plant and cover. Let infuse 10 to 20 minutes. The action of hot water makes it possible to extract the precious active ingredients of the plant and thus be able to absorb them.
Put the chosen plant in a jar, cover with vegetable oil, without closing the lid. Keep two weeks, filter and use.

Place the desired quantity of plants in a saucepan, add the cold water and heat to a simmer, turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Then turn off the heat and let it rest for 20 minutes. (like tea)
Put the desired quantity of plants in a blender after having finely cut. Add the glycerin. Place in a jar, close and store away from light for two weeks. Filter the mixture and use it.
are obtained by steam distillation. It is the aromatic part of the plant that is obtained. Essential Oils are very popular
in herbal medicine for their anti-infectious action, hormonal action, nervous regulation, etc.
Hydro glycerine macerate:
Same principle as above with water.
