This is my beautiful Mum, affectionately known as ‘Buffy’.
My inspiration. My mentor. A revolutionary. Most definitely ahead of her time.
She is the one who introduced me to the first incarnation of the face cream and the inspiration behind Nourished By.
In her words:
“It was during a very difficult time with my Mother going through 5 operations in 6 months for bowel cancer. I needed to get out of Sydney and put myself together and found a retreat offering time and space to rest, swim, walk, and practice Tai Chi.
Also on offer was a beauty class, and it was during this they showed us how to make our own ‘face cream’
I was taken with this straight away and came away with the greatest gift that has kept on giving after 20+ years.
My first few attempts were less than successful, but I persevered, tweaked the recipe and method to make it my own, and could then make beautiful batches consistently, each one a reflection of the mood and love I put into it. I experimented with oils and scents that reflected the person they were going to.
I have been supplying close family and friends since not long after that retreat and I am thrilled that Franny is now spreading this beautiful gift further into the universe with her loving ways and thoughts.”
