Love To B Beautiful

There we were enjoying some soup on Tuesday, in The Furlong shopping centre in Ringwood. I noticed a lady come in and go up to the counter to speak to the manager. "That's Julie" I said to Bob, and reminded him who she was. Then Julie started coming round to the diners, giving our her business cards and small soap samples.
Julie has a really interesting story;
About ten years ago, her daughter Bea suffered with terrible eczema. Julie set about finding an effective [non-steroid] treatment. She rapidly concluded that neither the cosmetic industry, nor conventional medicine had the answer. She began researching historical, natural remedies...her conclusion was that simple plant-based products would supply the answer. Bea's skin rapidly improved - and Julie discovered a life changing passion. 
What began as a "kitchen table project" developed into a natural cosmetics company. You can read the full story here. She named her company "love to b" after her daughter, who had inspired it. Julie worked from a small unit in Ringwood employing local people to help her combine fruit extracts, essential oils and more to make a whole range of beauty products. There is an online store, and the range covers beauty products for the whole family, women, children and men - as well as perfumed candles.
And the reason Julie was in the coffee shop yesterday was that she was promoting he latest venture- she has now opened a shop in Ringwood, just by the Horse Sculpture. So you can go in and actually smell the perfumes, and try out the creams. 
These products are all handmade, they are not tested on animals [but on Julie's willing friends!] and they are palm-oil free. 
The shop is delightful - with attractive displays, autumnal floral arrangements, and friendly staff.
Here's Julie behind the counter, working at her new till.
If you are local to Ringwood, please drop in - and

  1. What a lovely story! I hope her new shop is a success!

  2. Angela, it was a pleasure to see you both the other day. Thank you for popping in to Love to b and for generously writing the blog. We've been on an incredible journey with God at the helm. We feel truly blessed for this opportunity in life πŸƒπŸŒΊπŸ™πŸŒΊπŸƒ

  3. I'm very impressed and looking forward to ordering from them.

  4. That's lovely to know. Actually, my sister inlaw has bad eczema so this comes at a good time- I could buy something for her for Christmas from here!

  5. I may have to ask Julie for commission on sales. Steph is very pleased with the rose hand balm I got her
