The Story Behind Smooch Natural Products
In 1999 I woke up during the night with an incredibly itchy scalp. This had happened to me before, in fact most times I tried different shampoos and conditioners I had this reaction. I sat up and poured an almost full jar of coconut oil over my head. I thought my scalp should be moisturised like the rest of my skin. It worked well for a little while, except that I looked like I had stuck my head in a chip vat!
The benefit I felt got me thinking of a plan. I had always preferred natural products on my skin and when my mother developed Cancer I put this at the forefront of my planning. This is why I came up with the idea of putting nothing on my skin that I couldn't eat.
My Own Guinea Pig
With my knowledge of making skin care and essential oils I went about making a concoction. Being my own guinea pig and needing some sort of controlled experiment I covered the left side of my body in coconut oil, the right side was for my concoction! The right side, including my difficult scalp, felt smoother, looked better and my scalp didn't itch. It wasn't quite right though. The formula went back to the drawing board. Concoction #1 then went on the left side and #2 went on the right side. This went on for a number of years until I came up with the product we sell today called, Doctor Smooch. I gave it this name as it seemed to cure all.
I wanted a balm that I could use as a moisturiser everyday and one to cure my Psoriasis of the scalp and my Contact Dermatitis caused by stress and nasty ingredients in other products. I did it!
Going To Market
In 2014 we started business with 2 Sensual Massage Oils but when going to our first Expo I thought I'd take some Doctor Smooch with us. Our oils still continue to sell well but Doctor Smooch has gone beyond what we ever imagined and it came with us as an after thought! It turns out I wasn't the only one with difficult and dry skin. We have now helped thousands of people now which gives us lots of warm fuzzy feelings.
From there, I've continued to branch out into other natural products - currently researching products that I believe many would like a 100% natural solution for, including deodorant, sugar scrubs, make up remover, anti-ageing face moisturiser, insect repellent, pet care and much more.
If you can't eat it, it won't be in Smoooch Natural Products!
