After the loss of my grandmother, devastated and overwhelmed with grief, I began focusing on formulating products with essential oils and fragrances. At the time, I didn't realize this process was helping me to channel my grief into creativity as a way to cope with the loss. I was not only grieving the loss of my grandmother but also the loss of other relatives and situations in my life which were stressful and all occurring back to back. This propelled me to focus on my own self care as I was trying to cope with all of the grief and pain. Making this connection was healing, spiritual, therapeutic and ultimately led me to my passion and purpose.
This experience sparked my "Aha!" moment and inspired me to use my God given gifts to create, connect and help people just like my grandmother did for so many. My desire to help and serve others along with my grandmother's love and legacy translated into a love reciprocated by others. This journey helped me understand the purpose of my grief and pain which led to my passion to create, connect and help others. Through the art of handcrafting products from start to finish, adding my own personal touch, inspired me to give a gift of love. Handcrafted with Love and Wellness in Mind. This inspired and led to the creation of the Catlin Naturals Brand®!
