When I was retired, I’ve promised to myself, that I will prepare my whole everyday needings such as breads and also mouisturizing creams.
This was the decision taken by me, after have bought 50 cc moisturizing cream some years ago, which has made of full of chemicals, and cost me a fortune at my heydays.
After a while, if you believe in coincidences like me, I have came across a book at the old book store, consisting of how to make a homemade mouisturizing creams and cosmetics.
Internet was not as common as now, the books were good friends of mine on this long journey. That was the very early of my “crocus naturals” story.
You should see my very first home made mouisturizing cream trials. My family and my husband were always with me and gave me a full support but they were a bit worried about my business future success .
Now it has been sixteen years, and here I am. 🙂
By the way, we have achieved one of our greatest dream and moved from Istanbul to Dalyan, Mugla three years ago with my family of course. My Daughter, Ada ,9 years old, riding with her bycycle to the primary school every single day. Although our life seems a bit unsustainable, we are so happy to live in that way. It is great to be in the nature as soon as you stepped out the door, an able to reach to all kind of plants and flowers such as aloe vera, cranberry, nettle in our garden… It’s just a priceless life for us.
When we moved to Dalyan I have met some extra ordinary foreigner women who lives in Dalyan area and we have started to share almost everything about our lives with eachother. They were keep asking about my “beautiful skin” and which cosmetics am ı appyling to my skin in our every single meeting, then ı was the one who started to look myself in the mirror, to my “beautiful” skin every other day. I have told them, that ı apply my homemade eye serum and moisturizing cream every day for 16 years. My intelligent Hollandese friend Sonja asked me, why don’t ı sell them, First I have just laughed about it, but more compliment ı accept, more ı start thinking about it. And started to make my own ” crocus” home made moisturizing cream and eye serum 2 years ago.
I have started to make ” moisturize workshops” teaching how to make one, to our curious neighbours, some nearby places and in İstanbul. After a while I have decided to stop doing workshops for good and also my friends spread their good experiments about my goods and as a result “crocus natural” product family has extended day by day. Now here we are.
If you asked me my success; my answer would be; being in the nature and becoming nature.
So, haven’t you started to try one of my home, actually, my kitchen made 🙂 pure cosmetic products?
May God bless all of us. Have a wonderful day.
