Once you've been pampered it's hard not wanting to relive those moments. Whether it be your first pedicure, facial, or full body massage, you never forget those relaxing hours.
Being a college student and splitting my time and energy between school, organizational meetings, dance practices, and work, I found myself longing for the next opportunity to be pampered. In an area that didn't seem to fulfill my needs within my budget (because I am still a college student), I was forced to become innovative in an effort to reach the level of tranquility I had once received.
I will admit I am addicted to getting my feet done. Nothing soothes me more than the exfoliation, aroma, and moisture from the scrubs used during a pedicure. Since i knew exactly what I was looking for and didn't have the means to visit a spa, I created a foot scrub for myself. I went into my kitchen and mixed almost everything in sight. I grabbed things gritty and soft, bought ingredients with subtle and potent aromas, and through a little trial and error my concoction delivered.
Due to a mixture of enervation, resourcefulness, and a slight addiction to self indulgence, I was able channel my troubles into a hobby. I remember an urge of creativity striking me as I did my research and met with colleagues. I started making scrubs for my face and my acne began to clear, then i started making scrubs for my entire body and I no longer needed to buy lotion or moisturizers alike. I shared my success with a few close friends and before I knew it everyone wanted to try my creation.
To know that people were looking for the same feeling I was, and knowing that I was the only person capable of fulfilling that desire flooded me with an emotion I had never experienced before. It was more than excitement, and far beyond joy or plain happiness.. And in that moment I knew what I would call my products. Euphorik
