Tell us about your biz, what do you do/make/sell? How long have you been in biz?
I opened my business January 2017.
How did you get started?
I’ve been making my own products for years, and with constant requests from friends and family to make them products, my husband purchased a business license for me, and I took the leap into making my products for sale to the public.
Who or what inspires your work?
Mother nature is my inspiration behind Alchemy Jane hands down. Plants, herbs, essential oils, earth, clay, mud, salt… I love using nature in it’s raw form as part of my beauty routine. I’m inspired by the scents, sounds, and textures in nature, and I try to incorporate all of these elements into the experience of using my products.
How do you pick yourself up when things go wrong?
Honestly when things go wrong it can be a very humbling experience. Not saying I enjoy sticky situations, but there is always something to learn, and room to grow. When I’m down the best pick me up is a little TLC, I take a bath, rock out to some oldies, scroll through Instagram, read a book, or go for a walk.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
Oooooooo LOVE this! My super power would be to transport myself both into the future and the past!!!
What’s one thing no one knows about you? Give us an interesting fact!
I am a high school drop out… Not my most flattering fact haha 🙂 but it’s the truth, and honesty is the best policy. I dropped out of high school for personal reasons, although high school isn’t a treat for anyone. Eventually I went on to University as a mature student, and made the deans honour roll, graduated with a Commerce Degree and found peace in who I am. Now I can confidently share my flaws, and be real.
