By our founder, LIZZIE

From when I was little and growing up in Aotearoa, I always loved nature and being outside a lot. I would often collect white seashells and pauas in light blues and lavender colours and enjoyed looking for shapes a lot in fluffy white clouds in blue skies. I loved the scent of lavender and all kinds of animals and often studied and read about them in books. I could see light pink roses in our garden open each year in early summer, and enjoyed looking at how all kinds of leafs could be a little different from each other and could come in a lot of shapes. I also love beauty and skin care a lot, and how beautiful natural ingredients from the natural environment could be able to be included in a beauty care or a skin care item, to use and apply on our face and skin each day. I studied a Bachelor of Arts (BA) environmental studies at uni (class of '16) and just under half of the papers I studied are also in 'health' and 'health care.'

A little after finishing uni in 2016, I created a blog called 'Caring Natural Bambi' (@caringnaturalbambi) to share posts about natural and eco friendly beauty and skin care I was using and trying and enjoying a lot, in case it could be helpful for others. After creating and sharing blog posts for a little, I thought of creating a beauty brand to share a love for gentle beauty a little more, with one-of-a-kind products, created with favourite ingredients and scents. I opened an instagram page called @camomilecare when I was 26, and hoped it could be helpful and could share a love of gentle skin care. 'Camomile Care' was chosen as a name with inspiration from camomile; a white and light gold coloured flower, with a calming scent. For just a couple of years, I created and shared posts on @camomilecare, including a lot of golden retriever pup posts, ootd inspirations and ideas, light blue skies and beauty care posts and galleries, while carefully checking how 'Camomile Care' could be as a brand, from colours and images, to natural ingredients and to packaging, and all things in between.

In early 2021, I also studied a mini course with Formula Botanica, to learn a little about the foundations of creating natural and organic skin care. Camomile Care was safely founded in 2021 and our online shop opened on the 1st of December, 2021. I hope 'petal' could be a caring, safe and nourishing addition to a customer's skin care collection and the light, baby pink and white packaging and choice to print CAMOMILE CARE in a twinkling gold heading could be one-of-a-kind and as safely unique as possible. petal is a gentle facial oil and is carefully handmade and created with the loveliest possible 100 % natural and Certified Organic ingredients I could find; all noted to be safe for sensitive skin. petal was chosen as a name because the softness of petals could connect to the gentleness of the botanical formulation and how it could help to care for and to soften skin. I hope you could enjoy petal and Camomile Care and for any help you could be welcome to send a message just any time and kindest, from Lizzie (founder) 💫
