Who We Are
The Bliss Botanicals foundation has been built upon the highest standards for skincare. Our team of medical lab technicians, holistic aestheticians, and doctors continue to learn and expand their knowledge with the newest ingredients and stay connected with the local farmers and suppliers. Bliss Botanicals aims to minimize packaging, keep local suppliers in Canada, and use only premium health Canada approved and organic certified ingredients in each and every product.
Because we have been creating and building a successful skincare business for over 10 years we thrive on strengthening our foundation in order to satisfy our clients with the best skin care experience possible.
We are here to help you feel and look beautiful!
Prairie: Grassland; comes from the French word for meadow. While we might describe a single meadow, we usually use prairie to describe a type of countryside.
Bliss: State of complete and utter happiness; often seen as heaven-like.
Botanicals: Pharmacology; a drug made from part of a plant, as from roots, leaves, bark, or berries. Botanicals are used as an additive (especially in Prairie Bliss Botanicals to help your skin shine).
Bio: The branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances.
Bloom: Just like a baby a blooming flowers goes through transition and change.
As a prairie farm girl growing up, I was fortunate to spend my summers at the lake. While my family regularly entertained, I would often be found making concoctions with local shrubs, botanicals, dirt, moss and fresh lake water; anything I could find would be mixed into the pot. I remember naming my ‘brews’ and then returning them back to the earth with love and gratitude when they were completed... maybe this is where my love for making skincare began. I loved being out in the elements, going on little adventures and getting dirty while seeking new plants for my next creations. The love of creating and adventure has stayed with me driving the passion for Bliss Botanicals.
I am a wife and mother to a an amazing, kindhearted man, a beautiful, intelligent, free-spirited daughter and two fur babies who would gladly attach themselves to my hip until they see a squirrel at the lake. In the summer of 2019 we are expecting to add a son to our lovely little family and we couldn’t be more excited.
I enjoy a good gin martini, colourful healthy foods and still like to kick ass every once in a while (I kickboxed for over 10 years). My yoga practice and time with nature either camping or with my dogs, have shaped my life, given me a strong work ethic, dedication to growth and a calm and peaceful heart and mind.
During my 15 years as a certified medical aesthetician, I worked with many clients who were endlessly struggling with their skin sensitivities, due to poor quality ingredients and chemical preservatives in their products. It became my goal to help them find sensible, eco-friendly healing solutions for their skin; less preservatives and more active ingredients that created a true difference.
So the journey of crafting quality healing skin care began. I spent many years and long nights in my kitchen crafting and researching organic and remedy based ingredients for different skin types. My clients, family and friends were willing participants in my experiments and when they seen noticeable improvement I knew I was on the right path. What started out as just making solutions for individual clients quickly grew into the certified Bliss Botanicals line you know now.
Bliss Botanicals now has become very busy and it become apparent a step innovative skin care line was needed that combined still active ingredients but was medical grade for challenging skin. With countless hours of research, becoming CSA and FDA approved I to create BioBliss, a medical/pharmaceutical grade skin line for the next development of skin care health.
This particular skin line requires a more controlled laboratory so we developed a fully dedicated space for it. I took a step back from taking clients after 15 years and welcomed in my husband Andy to manage and operate Prairie Bliss Medispa. This allows us to focus on customer satisfaction at the clinic while developing and researching for the exciting pharmaceutical skin care line.
About two years ago, and after the success of Prairie Bliss Botanicals and BioBliss, my clients were sharing their concerns for their children and their sensitive skin. So the Journey of creating another skin care line began. Interviewing many different dermatologist and paediatricians on skin care I travelled all over Canada and discovered babies have completely different skin than teens and adults. I developed a skin sensitivity chart for babies and children and started working with Hypoallergenic and gentle ingredients for delicate skin. After great success, I launched Bliss + Bloom a paediatric skin line, perfect for sensitive skin.
There is nothing I love more, than be working in the laboratory listening to music, dancing like no one is watching, diffusing essential oils and creating fresh products for customers and retailers. I love that Bliss Botanicals makes your skin glow! Keep sending your before and after photos!!
Thanks for all your support and love... May it ripple out, and out, and out!
