Introducing Bella Botanicals
Yes, it's that time of year when you start feeling you want to spoil your mom for Mother's Day! Why not start by helping her embrace her natural beauty. I know we were all so happy to demask over the last several months, and I just love seeing everyone's beautiful faces again. Let's not cover them up any longer.
We are excited to introduce you to a Holmen local, Leslie Reichgelt, owner and founder of Bella Botanicals. We love Leslie's mission and are excited to support her in getting her natural skincare into the hands of more beautiful ladies looking to embrace their natural beauty. She is a mother to two littles, wife, avid gardener, and a true lover of all things health and wellness. Early on in life, she realized the value of developing a skincare routine, due to her early onset with a skin condition called rosacea. Into her adulthood she began reading labels, and looking at the ingredients in products more closely. It was a desire to use natural products that were sustainable, sourced ethically, and without known toxins, that truly inspired her to create this brand. Leslie received her education for formulating natural skincare from Formula Botanica, an online school based out of the UK.
Through talking with Leslie about her products, it became very clear to me she formulates a quality, organic skincare line worth really supporting. If you are looking for a thoughtful gift that also supports a local business for the mother's in your life, or even to treat yourself, come the Treehouse and see our new Bella Botanicals. Don't know where to start? Start with the Step 1: Sweet Orange Facial Cleanser, Step 2: Witch Hazel and Lavender Hydrosol Facial Toner, and Step 3: Moisture Boost Facial Serum with Hyaluronic Acid.
Want to hear more straight from Leslie? We will host Live with Leslie on facebook next week, May 4th over the noon hour at Treehouse Gift & Home as we count down to Mother's Day. With hundreds of 5 star reviews on her products, here's a message from Leslie:
“I absolutely love working with natural skincare ingredients. The oils, butters, waxes, and different plant extracts, all contain wonderful nutrients that really work to care for your skin’s overall health. I enjoy knowing that with each bottle of skincare we’re bringing a piece of nature into your bathroom. Something that can ground you, enlighten you, and bring a bit of joy to your everyday life, all while being environmentally conscious.” --Leslie Reichgelt
Leslie’s goal with Bella Botanicals is to create products that help women feel confident in their skin, without feeling the need to mask their true beauty, through natural and effective skincare.
I thought it appropriate to share 3 of my favorite tips from Leslie for embracing your natural beauty:
Tip 1: Enjoy radiance-boosting foods
Don’t worry, we’re not going to tell you to completely overhaul your whole diet! However, we do recommend sprinkling in some extra goodness as a way to glow from the inside, out.
Try to focus on getting a healthy dose of vitamin C in particular, which protects your collagen stores from sun damage and helps to boost elastin, to give your complexion a firm and radiant finish. Broccoli, red capsicum and citrus fruits are three brilliant sources.
This Detox Salad by Miss Nutritionista is a recipe that we also love for boosting that healthy glow!
Tip 2: Use products that are as naturally beautiful as you are
We recommend opting for natural products whenever possible. The skin is the largest organ of the body and a lot of what you put on it will be absorbed into the bloodstream. Luckily, nature has provided us with a whole host of incredible ingredients that care for the complexion, without unnecessary added chemicals.
Take CBD, for example! This antioxidant and anti-inflammatory is the star ingredient in so many Bella Botanicals products for a reason: It nourishes, renews and leaves your skin looking its best, whilst being totally plant-based.
Tip 3: Get affirming
No matter how stunning you are (and, trust us, you really are!), your mind will sometimes try to play tricks on you. Embracing your natural beauty is as much a physical process as it is a mental one, which is why we love to practice positive self-talk, alongside a solid skincare routine.
Whilst applying your products each morning and night, repeat the following affirmation while looking at yourself in the mirror...
“I have confidence in my natural beauty.”
Then, try to keep this thought with you as you complete the rest of your to-do list, encouraging yourself to step into a mindset of self-love.
