Kayorcee Creations and Our Natural Philosophy

Kayorcee Creations was created out of sheer necessity.  About 10 years ago, due to an illness, I started thinking about the things in my environment as they personally related to me and my family.  I specifically mention the pure selfishness of this thought process, because it’s true.  I was not an eco-friendly world citizen.  Recycle?  That word had no meaning to me at the time.  Chemical free products?  I waved that off with a flip of my wrist indicating my thought process on the subject was done.  Yes, I was indeed flippant with regard to the subject of natural living.  However, as I mentioned, when I became ill with a respiratory infection from over-cleaning my house, my whole outlook on the issue changed drastically.

I am not a middle of the road type of person.  I have nothing against this type of living, but I know I don’t fall into this category.  If I am going to do something, I am going to do it big, or at least I will try.  I made the decision that my house was going to be a chemical free zone.   Well… as much as I could make it chemical free.  I immediately threw away all of my cleaning products and embraced a more natural way of cleaning my home.  Vinegar was a miracle worker.  It didn’t smell as good as my other products, but that was the cost of my new life change.  Once I had a nice grasp on how to clean my home without chemicals, I started thinking about how my family and I were cleaning our bodies.

Growing up, as well as in my adult life, I had suffered with skin irritations, dryness and those pesky facial blackheads and blemishes.  I never had a full blown skin diagnosis, but it was still a problem for me.  As I watched my children grown, I noticed that they too had these issues with their skin.  My son’s skin, which is a nice milk chocolate brown, was often a gray color due to the amount of ash on just about his entire body.  Lotion was just a temporary fix that typically didn’t last more than 2 or 3 hours.  My next recourse was to slather petroleum jelly on his body.  He hated that, but that was what I knew to do at the time.  My daughter’s and my husband’s skin was not that much better than my son’s skin.  In retrospect, I feel foolish for not recognizing the problem that we were all suffering from.  But we are past that now, due to my new found relationship with the natural.

As I stated earlier, I am not a middle of the road type of person and my entry into the natural beauty realm is event of this.  I knew we had to get rid of the things that we were using to clean our bodies, but I knew if I threw out all of our hygiene products my family would revolt against me.  This time I had to take things a little bit slower.  I started making all of our products a little at a time.  All of us started seeing results almost instantly.  Our skin wasn’t nearly as dry and the use of lotion, although very much present from simple habit, was scaled down dramatically.  I no longer worried about my son being teased during gym class because of his chalky white legs.  I was getting so many complements on my skin that I start giving the stuff away to my friends and family.  Then they started making requests and offering me money for what I thought had no value except to my family and I.

Being in the natural beauty business has been so  much fun and rewarding.  I love seeing the changes in my customers skin after they try their first bottle of natural lotion or first bar of handcrafted soap.  I have embraced my business, but to be honest it is hard to look at Kayorcee Creations as simply a business because I am having the time of my life.

Kayorcee Creation’s motto is “Naturally Beautiful”.  I choose this motto because I have never felt more beautiful in my life, and I know it is thanks to natural products.
