My name is Serena and I'm the creator of Eveksia skin care (and mood food!)
I have always felt a deep affinity with the natural world~especially the therapeutic properties that animals, flowers, trees and herbs offer us. This connection has grown through my studies into Aromatherapy and Herbalism; knowledge which has formed the essence of my products. Being a Vegan, I have always been concerned about what I consume commercially and I am continuously striving to simplify my lifestyle to eradicate chemicals, synthetics and unethical ingredients. This philosophy is central to my ethos with Eveksia and I see it as a celebration of Nature's bounty and how it can enhance our health mentally, physically and emotionally.
I am also a qualified Artist and Teacher with a Diploma in Creative Therapy and Person Centred Counselling. Please visit my Healing Art site Birds Become Fishes and my Etsy Shop for more information on my work.
Love & Light!
~How it all began~
Have you ever really thought how important our skin is? It is the largest organ in the body and performs so many vital roles for our well-being both physically and emotionally. It wasn't until I became a Vegan that I really started to think about what we absorb through our skin. It's the same as eating food- we consume through our skin pores. What we apply, rub or massage in directly enters our bloodstream. When knowledge is gained into what the long ingredients lists on jars and bottles mean you realise it's just a list of chemicals and more chemicals! Alarmingly, skin absorption allows ten times more chemicals to be consumed than in an oral dose, so our daily use of Cleansers, Body Washes, Shampoo and other products could potentially be very dangerous. (If you are interested in reading up about these Chemical ingredients please click here).
I started by researching natural, organic oils that cleanse and moisturise the skin~ free of such chemicals as Parabens, Phythalates and synthetic fragrances that can cause cancer, irritations and even damage to the immune system. There are so many. Through my passion for Aromatherapy, I decided to then enhance the base carrier oils blend by adding special fusions of Essential Oils for specific skin issues such as eczema, wrinkles, irritations and very tired skin. As well as also smelling yummy, I have created synergies to feed emotions and mood~ those for energising, uplifting and relieving anxiety, as well as for relaxation, mental focus and clear thinking. So the Eveksia collection ('wellness' in Greek) is here; a holistic approach to healthy skin & mind. In the shop you will find Cleansers and Moisturisers for a range of skin issues which at the same time allow you to feel empowered and in control of your mood and emotions.
There are NO Preservatives, Parabens, Animal Ingredients or Synthetic Chemicals in any of my products. I use Organic ingredients and High Grade Essential Oils. It is truly an Alchemy of Love for Humans, Animals and our Planet.
None of the ingredients (or end products) are tested on animals
All ingredients are Vegan
It is truly an alchemy of love for Humans, Animals and our Planet.
