Beautiful Twists' STORY
Here are a couple of questions I get asked quite frequently...
Where did the idea for scented confetti potpourri in soup bowls come from?
One of my favorite things to create are beautiful twists. I love blending things together that wouldn't normally go together. I actually came up with the idea for the scented confetti potpourri soup bowls, while talking to my awesome stepdad on the phone. It just hit me, that potpourri needs a new beautiful twist & why can't it tell a story?! Why not make potpourri fun & have some really pretty, some strange, unique scents. I wanted to mix things up a bit in the potpourri world, yet keep true to using nature for inspiration & ingredients. Yes, my peanut butter & jelly scented confetti potpourri will be out shortly. Along with my grass, dirt & violet scent (it's actually awesome!). It was also inspired by my fun making 'pretty mud soup' with my son. Being a mom to boys, I sometimes miss doing girly things, so we came up with an idea to make pretty mud soup. I collect pretty flowers, cinnamon sticks, leaves etc & my son gets the mud, the sticks, rocks, rainwater ready & we blend it together for a fun soup. We then pretend to eat it...mmmm.
What is Ella Dean all about?
I love creating a 'beautiful twist' by mixing natural, soothing, healing ingredients with unique fun, inspiring labels. Who, says vegan & natural products can't be super fun?! I say have your cake & eat it too! I'm also motivated by making people see just how beautiful (inside & out) they are & that 'being different is truly beautiful.' I really strive to capture that in my products. I hope you agree!
Does anyone help you?
Yes, my son named Fox, helps me put labels on. He takes his job very serious & loves it! My husband & son are also my smell testers, which is a big help too. They both inspire me in so many ways. My dad, mom & sisters are huge supporters! My dad & mom also give me lots of good ideas, they are so creative. My stepdad is someone that I can always run ideas by & he helps me with the business side of things (my dreamy mind needs that help). Animals & nature are a huge inspiration too...thanks guys for all the help. xoxo, Ella
What Inspires You?
Lots of things inspire me, please read above paragraph too. I love to laugh & sometimes I even laugh in my sleep (as my husband has told me many times) & that's where many of my ideas come from. I have very vivid dreams & I actually dream about ideas for products, scents & lip conditioner flavors all the time. Oh & I also dream about animals quite a bit, that's probably why they inspire a lot of my products too. I'm coming up with new products all the time, so make sure to check back often. The dreams keep coming...
Hope you find a product in my shop that inspires You! Thank you for stopping by!
