JazzyBean, named after my beautiful oldest daughter Jasmine, started from my passion for creating healthy body products.
My passion was actually sparked, unbeknownst to her, by my mother-in-law Natanya. One day, while sitting in her dining room, I asked her about a clay facial I saw in her bathroom. As she was telling me about the product, she then handed me a book The Complete Herbal Guide to Natural Health & Beauty, by Dian Dincin Buchman.
I was astounded over the fact that one can create so many natural beauty products right in their kitchen! Anything from shampoos to mouthwash to body creams. I read the book voraciously and couldn't wait to make these at home.
A few years later, pregnant with my second child and not eager to obtain any new stretchmarks, I got my hands on some cocoa butter. I would break off a piece of it, put it in a glass container and set it on top of my radiator. After a few minutes I would then apply the melted warm pool of cocoa butter on my belly and it was HEAVENLY!
Since then, I have been making natural skin and hair products for my family. I have also shared these with many friends as well.
I hope you enjoy these as much as my friends and family.
