THE STORY OF NHD
Many moons ago, I used to work full time in fashion, designing women's shoes and involved in retail, wholesale and styling of womenswear and accessories. I decided to stop in 2008, partly because fast fashion was pushing out independent designers, and partly because I noticed I'm blessed with three kids under the age of 4 at home, and not there to see them grow up. So I refused to have my shoes mass produced in the far east and instead decided to stay home and take care of my children.
Fast forward a few years, my children are older and more independent now and I can dedicate time to develop and produce products that I want but can't find. Appalled at the level of synthetic materials and toxins in mainstream beauty products, perfumes and candles, I've developed my range of holistic natural goods. A graduate in medical science and three years Phd research in microbiology, I'm well versed in wearing a lab coat. I also want to promote artisan and sustainable fashion because plastic really and truly isn't fantastic. I'm influenced by mysticism and ancient practices and inspired everyday by the amazing people that I connect with on Twitter and Instagram. The idea behind this concept store is thanks to our collective consciousness. I'm not going to follow any fashion rules and will introduce collections and new products as we go along.
All NHD natural products are 100% organic and free from synthetic additives, preservatives and fillers.
All the organic essential oils in NHD products are steam distilled or CO2 extracted and completely hexane free. Each batch is charged and blessed at sunrise in the indigenous tradition.
NHD candles are made with responsibly sourced, organic beeswax and coconut oil, free from paraffin and soya. Beeswax candles have been shown to purify the air and not emit the carcinogenic fumes associated with petroleum based candles. The addition of our aromatherapy standard essential oils make NHD candles extra special. The scents are delicate and linger long after you put out the candle.
Two words to describe NHD #AgeingSucks Face Serum; IT WORKS
Researched and developed methodically, my aim was to create a facial serum that provides the highest level of skin nutrition for truly transformational results. I've used 17 different botanical and essential oils to address almost everything the skin needs, at a cellular level, to regenerate and rebalance. Unlike the majority of the cosmetic and skincare products, NHD face serum is completely pure and natural, including the fragrance used to scent the base oils.
