I discovered balm-making, almost by accident, a few years back melting wax for an art project. A few months later I had my first product: Sleeve Balm! Although I have always felt that the best and safest skin care comes from your pantry, this was my eureka moment (I can make it myself!! Yay!) and when I discovered the wide and exciting world of DIY and homemade natural body products. I am also an amateur gardener, cook, writer and photographer. Originally from Sweden, Montreal has been my home for 17 years. I’m a city girl with the soul of a country girl, and sometimes when I’m cooling balms by my kitchen window and catch a breeze coming off the mountain, or off our balcony garden I pretend I am on a farm.
