TOP 5 QUESTIONS
Q1: I have been waiting for your lash serum for years. Can you tell me about it?
Yes! I have been working on this for almost a decade and am beyond excited to finally be able to share! This was actually one of the first products I created years ago but for some reason, it just wasn’t happening. Then a few years ago, I started working with an organic chemist, and together we have been able to formulate the first revolutionary, safe alternative, strengthening, and nourishing serum that synergistically works to optimize lash health.
Long Lash is a clean, non-toxic, scientifically-formulated, Triple Peptide Complex that delivers nutrients to feed lashes with nature’s most powerful superstars. Backed by clinically-tested and active ingredients to encourage growth cycles to maximize, prevent breakage, and repair damage from cleansing, curling, mascara, extensions, and false lashes. Free from prostaglandins (like most lash growth serums) to naturally enhance the beauty of your own lashes without negative side effects. Simply put, supernatural results without compromise.
I have always had long lashes, and before lash extensions were a thing, people would ask me if I was wearing false lashes; then people started asking me if I used Latisse (something I would never risk using), and now people ask me just about every day if I have extensions, another thing I have never had and would never have because I think they destroy your own lashes. This is another reason why I was determined to create a product that can help women feel more confident without hormones or false lashes that destroy the beauty and health of their own lashes, making them reliant on false lashes their entire life. Although I have always had genetically long lashes, due to health issues with rheumatoid arthritis and IVF treatments, I have lost all of my lashes numerous times, and the last two times, with the help of Long Lash, my lashes grew back more full and beautiful than they have in years.

Q2: What is your hair care routine?
I wash my hair about once a week with a natural shampoo and conditioner. I usually brush it when it's wet then let it air dry, unless I’m in a rush then I might run a blow dryer through the front to help shape my layers. I use whatever TGS oil I put on my body that day through the ends to help tame any flyaways.
Once to twice a month I saturate my hair in Heal All Oil and leave it on overnight before I wash it out.
Heal All Oil encourages stronger, longer, healthier hair growth, addresses hair loss, hydrates the strands, brings out hair’s natural sheen, and helps with easier manageability. It also works to soothe inflammation on the scalp.
Q3: Do you think that deeper stretch marks from pregnancy can be healed?
Yes! With a little or maybe a lot of self-love all things are possible. There are several factors to consider. First of all, it took almost a year for you to create life so it will take at least that amount of time for your body to settle back into itself. Being proactive before, during, and after with the right moisturizer is key to minimizing damage.
This is precisely why I created Womb Wisdom. I recommend using this pre-conception, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding.
Post-breastfeeding, you can begin to incorporate Goddess Shaping Body Oil, a very active, detoxifying oil that helps prevent and correct stretch marks.
Lastly, be patient with yourself and your ever-changing beautiful body, not only does size change (especially during pregnancy) affect whether you might get stretch marks or not but also hormone fluctuations so with time, your body will find its new balance and in the meantime, you can start giving yourself some extra TLC with TGS :)

Q5: I hear you talk about PUFA oils. Which PUFA oils would you never use on your skin and why?
There are so many oils in some of the most famous and popular skincare brands that I personally would never use on my skin. Meanwhile, people keep wondering why their skin is aging rapidly with hyperpigmentation, acne, and age spots- blaming the sun and putting more toxic products on their skin, creating a vicious cycle…maybe that was the plan all along.
High PUFA oils interact negatively with sunlight and cause skin oxidation and rapid aging. The higher an oil is in PUFAs, the more likely it is to cause free radical damage to your skin (think age spots and wrinkles.) These are the oils highest in PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) Hemp seed, Safflower, Grapeseed, Flaxseed (Linseed), Sunflower, Poppyseed, and Soybean.
