What inspired you to begin your company, Lovefresh? How did you start?
I started studying aromatherapy ten years ago as something fun to do. I had no idea what I would do with all this new found information, except that I enjoyed playing with and blending essential oils. I saw an advertisement for how to make cold processed soaps from scratch and thought I could possibly marry the two. So I began making soap and shortly after, decided to begin selling it at the St. Lawrence Market for the summer. After being there for just a few weeks, I realized there were more products that I could make for the people buying my soap. I ended up making a plethora of products that summer and by the end I had narrowed it down to my best sellers; sugar scrubs, body butters, and lotions. I then was approached by a woman who was interested in selling the products in her boutique and I jumped at the offer.

Is there something else you'd like to share?
I'd like to share how much this movement is making a difference in women's lives. I think more companies should help women going through breast cancer. Not only is it physically and emotionally traumatic, it's also financially traumatic - something that is often overlooked. It's the little things - like paying the rent while going through treatment, or daycare for your kids while you're at appointments, or having someone who can pick up groceries. Oftentimes it's these small things that are overlooked, because we're all so focused on the big picture of getting better. I love women and I'm beyond happy to help in any way that I can.
Pick up your Lovefresh for Causemetics Deodorant-$4 from your purchase will help pay the bills of people going through breast cancer treatments.
