Elyse Marie was fascinated with art and nature from an early age and inherited this curiosity from her environmentalist father and mother in the holistic medical field. As an adult, Elyse Marie spent 10 years as a cosmetologist in New Jersey, building a diverse foundation of knowledge and experience.
When she became pregnant and her body’s sensitivity and protective maternal instincts were heightened, her chemical-based surroundings became unbearable. This sparked her vision to create a healthy and educational beauty care environment using all natural resources.
