In 2015 my amazing sis traversed the breast cancer route. She kept calm and positive through the frightening and painful process of a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Each stage brought a variety of different side effects, including mouth ulcers, hair and nail loss, fatigue, 'chemo brain', lymphedema, skin pain and burns, back pain, insomnia, hot flushes........... and the emotional stuff. Whilst she went through this I was completing my Natural Skincare Diploma and I created this range, totally inspired and developed to help her through each stage of treatment. The cancer hasn't defined Jacqui, she continues to live a life full of laughter and love thanks to her inner joy, incredible children, workmates and network of friends. I hope this range helps others going through cancer , when chemicals and harsh ingredients cannot be tolerated. It is made with amazingly healing botanicals full of vitamins and minerals, the most beautiful vegetable oils and butters and pure essential oils - which work on us on so many different levels, especially our emotions and spirits. Oh .... and LOVE xx
This range includes a chemical-free Chamomile Calming Oil Cleanser, Rose Cooling Mist for stressed and burnt skin, Rosemary Hair Oil full of silica-rich herbs and Sandalwood Healing Butter for damaged skin. This gift-boxed set also comes with a Jojoba Cuticle Oil valued at $12, which helped my sis' nails grow back healthily and quickly. The cost of each of these items together is over $170, but I've massively reduced the set cost because I know how much extra money is spent when one goes through cancer.

'These amazing products saved me during my chemotherapy and I continue to use them in my daily care regime. The cuticle oil I used everyday during my treatment and it prevented the lose of my nails and has made them stronger and healthier in the aftermath. I can not rave enough about the healing balm which I continue to use everyday to keep my lymphatic arm nourished. It has helped so much! Every morning I shower using Pip's uplifting soaps which start the day with notes of natural fragrances and positivity. These products are made with love, care and knowledge of botanical health remedies and I highly recommend them.' - Jacqui W, Waiwhetu
