Susie & Alchemisty
I am Susie a natural and organic skincare facilitator and owner and formulator of Alchemisty Organic Skincare. I am passionate about using the beautiful organic ingredients that mother nature bestows upon us both for our skincare and our wellbeing. I have a line of 100% Organic Vegan Soaps and Skincare which are Cruelty Free, no nasty chemicals and no animals hurt in the process. My products are totally free of palm oil, SLS, Parabens, Phthalates, Synthetic Colours and Fragrances or any of the long list of nasty chemicals found in many commercial cosmetic and beauty products including some of those labelled as organic. My soaps make for a totally different soaping experience to most commercial brands especially liquid soaps which are mostly detergents, leaving your skin feeling dry and stripped of its natural oils. My ingredient list is made up of an amazing array of organic vegetable oils and butters, I only use high grade organic essential oils. Suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive or problematic of skins.
I hold workshops teaching how to make products yourself, safely at home, using wonderful organic vegetable oils and butters and pure essential oils for a fraction of the high street cost, making this kind of product available to everyone. I love to enlighten and educate people about Organic skincare and reading and understanding the ingredients in their products before risking the largest organ in their body … their skin. Just as you care what you put inside your body, care about what you put on the outside.
I have always had a passion for wonderful aromas and from a very young age was fascinated by the effect of aromas on our emotions and wellbeing. When I became pregnant whilst living in Amsterdam nearly 20 years ago, was when my life took a total turn towards natural ways to heal. When I first visited the midwife and asked her what pain relief was going to be offered to me and she said “the natural endorphins in your brain and Bach’s Rescue Remedy drops”. I was at first terrified but happily look back on my beautiful home births back in Amsterdam, the first on a house boat with just the afore mentioned Rescue Remedy drops, my breath, yoga and clutching a piece of Malachite and Moss Agate in each hand, our Golden Retriever, Groover by my side, my most amazing experience, and my total proof that hand in hand with nature I could achieve anything.
I decided to share my hobby for soap making some 6 years ago and Alchemisty was born, I have completed a diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation and completed a Natural Skincare Teacher Training and then began running my own workshops. I am also a gardener and my studies continue and will eternally with all the wealth or plants and their vast array of cures for our ills. Mother nature really does have a cure for all when used with good and true intention and we need to focus on this beautiful connection we share with all nature and the universe. A quote from my current studies The Matrix of Magic comes to mind “We are solar powered beings fuelled on the nectar of flowers” ♥ ♥ ♥
