Pamper Me, Please: Skin2Spirit Review and Giveaway!!


Pamper Me, Please...Skin2Spirit!!

I was so excited to find Kathi's Skin2Spirit Etsy shop.  I was privileged to review her Counting Sheep Whipped Shea Body Mousse.  I was immediately drawn to the fact that her ingredients are all natural.  When I received the product I fell in love with not only the natural scent, but also the creaminess of the lotion.  This particular mousse has lavender, grapefruit, orange, vanilla and chamomile in it.  I sometimes have trouble sleeping and so I decided to smooth this mousse on my skin every night right before I slip into my bed.  My sleep has been heavenly.  I also give my son a little massage right before bed and he "sleeps like a baby."  I know that this lotion is great for my skin because it has so many powerful ingredients including more than 9 organic super fruit extracts from the Amazon.  Kathi's motto is, "What are you feeding YOUR skin?"


 Let's get to know Kathi a little bit:

*Where did you come up with the name of your shop?
This was a long, long process. I wanted to name it something that made people think "Natural body care", but that was also easy to remember and had a nice ring to it. There are so many names out there and I had to think of about 50 and then weed out the duds by asking friends and family members to vote. I held a contest on facebook and the winner ended up not being used because it was already used! So I came up with Skin2Spirit by thinking about future products (perfume that is now in development) and the body care line. It just seemed right after many sleepless nights.

*How long have you been making your products?
I have been making products for about a year, but have been dreaming of them for many years and formulating in my mind.

*What do you like best about what you do?
I like the freedom to do what I want! It's that simple. I like to bring new products in just because I have a fancy to. I also like the creative process of dreaming up new formulas and scents and designing the labels (I am an artist at heart).

*What is unique about your shop?
My shop really does make all natural body products. Many, many businesses out there say they are all natural and they are not. For example, fragrance oils are not all natural. They are chemically derived and formulated in a factory. Most people don't know this, and they also don't know that many of these oils can cause health problems. This upsets me the most about this business. I have integrity, and if I say it is all natural, it is all natural. Don't get me wrong, I don't think some of these shops dupe people on purpose, I just think some are not well informed. I researched my products for many, many years before actually making them, and checked each and every ingredient thoroughly.  

Kathi, thanks for sharing!
