Welcome to Third Secret handmade artisan products, I’m so glad you stopped by today.
I’ve been having fun these past years making my own products and have a small but I believe beautiful range that started a long time ago. See in my early 30’s I was struggling with various hormonal issues after going off the pill to try and have some babies, so I started to research natural therapies to alleviate the symptoms I was experiencing. Essential oils in creams and diffuses seemed the ticket but after a friend showed me some blends that her sister had made for her to help her with her Crohn’s disease, I wondered if that would be the best way to apply my therapeutic remedy, it would be easy to use and I could pop it in my handbag and take it with me.
So I purchased a rolly bottle and some Essential oils and I made my very first blend, I then rolled that blend everywhere!
I loved it, it calmed me, soothed and centred me and became my first defense before having to take too many pain killers.
About a year later I was diagnosed with severe Endometriosis and later Adenomyosis and I finally had answers to why I was in so much pain and for why I couldn’t have children, but by then my body was spent and more surgeries were going to be needed over the course of a few years.
Even with surgery I’m not pain free but I can at least say I’m pain killer free for the most part. Of course there are days where I do need more of a helping hand, but with my blends those days seem easier.
Over many years that blend morphed into many many blends, but they were just the beginning of my love affair with creating and making my own products, they were also the stepping stone that would lead me to create Third Secret.
I wanted my products to be simple and honest in their makeup, created in small batches and free of any petro chemicals, sulphates or fragrances, plus I only wanted to use high grade ingredients such as rich oils, salts, butters and the purest of Essential oils.
I then started sprinkling some of my wears with gems, a little magic and faerie dust as I started to evolve more spiritually, slowly morphing my range to reflect myself in a more holistic way which is how I like to live my day to day, a sort of mix of personal hygiene with a spiritual practice thrown in.
I have found that it is also so important to take time for yourself when and where you can. In my case, I need to not only nourish my physical body but my mind as well, it keeps me centered, relaxed and spiritually connected and there’s nothing better than a Moon Ritual bath session to get your mind manifesting while getting the body clean at the same time.
I am always finding new and exciting ways to bring my imaginings to life and I’m always evolving as I do, so who knows where it could all go from here….
So if you’ve managed to get this far thank you and I hope you take a little look at what I’ve been up to, there’s a lot of love and soul balance with my eclectic range of ritualistic self care and you never know, you may stumble across the perfect gift for yourself or for your favourite person, all serendipity like.
