One of the funniest (to me) questions I get… other than ‘Do you make everything yourself?’ (Um yep, don’t I bang on about that enough?) is ‘Do you use these products yourself?‘
… Actually, the whole reason this range came into being in the first place was because I wanted to play and please myself and create what I couldn’t easily find in Boots (etc.) and heal and nourish my skin. Turning it into a business was definitely only an afterthought, never the original idea. I love that other people get to enjoy what I make, but I am my own first (/number one) customer, basically, and always will be.
It may be a terrible way to begin a business (the antithesis of Dragons Den) but it kinda works: I’ve always just made everything to my own tastes and according to my values and priorities and decided along the way to turn my hand at making it into a bit of a thing* (*technical word for business). So yes, I use these products myself.
If you happen to like the kinds of things I produce (maybe you have a similar nose, or similar views on things, etc.), that’s extremely exciting and I welcome you open-armed into the Leafology world (it’s basically the normal world, but gentler and more artful) and I’m grateful for you.
