Sponsor spotlight: Jennifer Hurst from Alchemy Body

13.1.17
1. Tell us about yourself - how & why did you start Alchemy Body & Beauty/how long have you been in business?
I am a mother of 2, a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Microbiology and I have a degree in Pharmacology. My hobbies include golfing, cross-stitching, baking and reading about physics and the universe. Having 2 children makes me want to have safe products in my home that I feel comfortable putting on their skin.  
I love to play around with my recipes and ingredients, it combines my love of science and baking.  I also have extremely dry skin and have a hard time finding products I like.  I have been in business a year and half and have been playing around with lotions, scrubs and balms for about 4 years.

1b. Describe yourself in one word!
Positive

2. As an entrepreneur, I'm sure that there are bumps and hiccups along the road. What keeps you going? What have been some highlights of doing what you do?
I am still pretty new to the business game so things have been a slow progression so far.  The highlight of what I do is having people tell you that your products are great and they enjoy using them.

3.  Can Alchemy Body & Beauty's products be used by individuals with perfume allergies?
Anyone can use the products scented with essential oils if those don't bother them.  I also always keep some unscented product in stock or can custom make for people.  All the products are manufactured by myself so I know all of the ingredients and can certainly make adjustments for individuals :) 
4. What kind of products would I find in your home (ingredients etc)?
In my home, you will find many oils and butters that I use in my lotions.  I really have been focusing on using natural, sustainable ingredients for my lotions.  I also have lip balm, soap and lotions scattered about the house for convenient use.

5. Does Alchemy Body & Beauty have any plans for the new year (changes, additions etc)?
In the new year, I will be working on more "man" products as I find there seems to be more demand for it.  As of now, I only carry a beard balm for the gentlemen and would like to have more lotion and skin care products for the guys.
6. Where can our readers find you (around the city/online)?
I usually attend smaller scale, hand-crafted markets and can be found online at Alchemybody.ca.  I'm also on Facebook and Instagram.
Jennifer at Alchemy Body & Beauty has generously donated a gift to the Small Wonders holiday gift bags for each lady.
One lucky winner also received a mango papaya lotion bar.
Thank you for your time and donations Jen. I can't wait to try more of your products.
