In 2015, the Canadian industry my husband had been working in for over 10 years started to decline – abruptly. There were thousands of lay-offs in our city, projects were cancelled, no one was hiring, and my husband was made redundant. There were no job prospects in sight, I had just embarked on my first start-up, and we needed to make a decision about the future very quickly. We decided to move to England, where my husband is from, and start over. Within 3 months, we were here. This was an extremely difficult time for me, and to be honest, I’m still finding my way (tribe). But every year, it gets a little easier!
In November 2016, I launched Awake Organics, which is born from my heart. My goal was to create a platform that would help women feel healthy, confident and less stressed every day. Since our launch, our aromatherapy-based products have won two awards, and have appeared in several national glossies. Our range is for health and wellness conscious women of all ages. Women are are seeking natural ways to manage the stresses and strains of modern life, and avoid additional exposure to harmful chemicals. We aim to help them do just that!
a conscious skin care range that enhances both physical and spiritual wellbeing.”
I’m really proud of our organic skin care range and Health & Wellness Blog. It embodies everything that I strive for in my own life. Every single product we manufacture is carefully and consciously crafted, using ethical, organic and sustainable ingredients. We buy our ingredients and packaging from UK suppliers, keeping money in the local economy. And we advocate for the earth by using materials that leave little impact. Above all, we love what we do. Our products are alive and, when you apply them with your whole heart and mind, your body will respond in positive ways.
The ever-growing Awake Organics range includes luxurious 100% plant-based facial serums, divine Frankincense moisturiser, a high Antioxidant mineral cleansing mask that supports the detoxification process, and a natural deodorant that actually works!
