Natural skincare is important to me because our skin is our largest organ, it’s our body's shield from outside environmental factors throughout our entire lives.
As our skin is always there to protect us, it's care is highly overlooked.
We should take as much care with what we put onto our bodies as we do into our bodies.
My occupation is nursing in a dermatology office, I love this job! I am surrounded by phenomenal providers and fellow nurses. Although, the medical side is where I have worked for the past six and half years, the skincare side is my passion!
I obtained my Associate of Science degree from Bowling Green State University- Firelands Campus and obtained a Natural Skincare Formulating Diploma from a nationally accredited natural skincare formulating program. I am giving you this background, so when you buy from me, you know this is not just a hobby and I am putting as much educational background into my products as possible!
I grew up very close to my Gram and she lives about as natural as one can live. A vivid memory I have with her is from when I was little, picking dandelions and soaking them in olive oil to wear as "perfume". We didn't know what we were doing, all that mattered is she and I were doing it together!
Recently, I gifted her my "Wildflowers in a Bottle" in the exact same spot we made the dandelion "perfume". She loved it!! And I loved that moment!
Looking back on my life, I know every step has led me to this business I have created.
Now onto the story of The Rolling Bell name..
The Rolling Bell name stems from my Grandma Bell.
We have a love for the The Rolling Stones; I love Keith Richards and Gram loves Mick Jagger, it's something we have always shared together.
My first Rolling Stones concert was in 4th grade- Bridges to Babylon Tour! I still have a clear image of Mick Jagger coming out over us on the bridge and the security guard giving me a stool to stand on so I could see better!
This accounts for "The Rolling" and "Bell" accounts for my Gram's, chosen, last name: Bell.
The hand squeezing in my logo is a drawing of my Great Grandma Manuela's hand.
It's easy to remember my Grandma's hands because she was always working with them, fresh tortillas are one of the main things I remember!
Despite being younger when she passed, my mom and dad always did a great job making sure we spent time together.
She was a special person, who always treated me with love and kindness and I believe my work ethic comes from her. ❤
My heart is full having my Grandma's incorporated into my business.
I am eager to see where this venture takes me and for the inspirational and talented humans I will meet along the way! I appreciate everyone I meet and truly believe every experience, good or bad, has something to teach me in this life.
To my customers, past, present & future: thank you for being you!
