[00:01] REENA JADHAV: Let’s talk about chapter three so in the beginning what is the message that you’re trying to get through in this chapter.
[00:06] NARDINE ARTEMIS: Well that chapter is actually that’s about little Nadine growing up so some of the things I just talked about but just sort of my story and the journey and how I came to have all this I guess knowledge about beauty and health and how it all ties together. So little bit about my journey how is making perfumes in grade nine and then I was concocting things out of my kitchen and then started importing essential oils that were of the highest quality and then when I was 22, I opened up North America’s first full concept aromatherapy store. And just blending in and concocting ever since so that’s what that chapter is about.
[00:47] REENA JADHAV: It’s fascinating to me that you’ve been doing this at such a young age did you have familiar influence or where do you think you developed this interest?
[00:59] NARDINE ARTEMIS: I really when we can get a bit of hindsight after a few decades of life on the planet and I know like I saw actually where we live now in this beautiful areas where we had a cottage, where I went camping. And I was deeply in the woods and in the forest and concocting things as a little girl it’s just mud and crushed leaves but I have this thing to mix things and even in the home where I raid my mother’s bathroom cabinet and put perfume together with like cleaning products. That be like grade one so yeah I was just enthralled with it and then in grade nine, I did this perfume project and this whole book on cosmetics I found at the library. And that was so fascinating because I didn’t really get work for I had all the bottles of perfume as all the commercial stuff and I would blend all that but I didn’t really know where it comes from. And it talked about ancient Egypt and that they were pressed from pedals and like loose from sap and ginger from trees and I was just fascinated that medicine and perfume were really back in the days seen as one and the same and the perfumers were the medicine makers and the medicine makers were the perfume, and I found that thrilling and now what we have is we have beauty care there are these lifeless liquids they are without reference.
[02:04] REENA JADHAV: They are made in a lab.
[02:05] NARDINE ARTEMIS: They’re just made in a lab and with processed purified petroleum oil and crazy ingredients that no poor is cash for. So when I thought back I just liked it just struck such a chord with me to combine nature with like the glue that we are going to put on our bodies and that was really strong for me.
[02:46] REENA JADHAV: It’s so true you know beauty creates beauty and so when you look at some of the ingredients in these incredibly well-known brands there’s no beauty in any of those ingredients. So one of the things that I actually did many years ago is contrary to what the media was trying to tell me I decided I wasn’t going to put any of that stuff on my face and I personally went down to just basic essential oils. Things that were sort of not even multiple ingredients you know how we live in a world where the more ingredients mean better if it’s rose oil I just want one rose of oil. It’s just one little ingredient with a little essential oil or a little frightened like maybe lavender or rose but that’s it that’s all your body needs so your face needs what your hair needs.
