When was the last time you slowed down and took a moment for you?
Do you often wake each day with the intention of moving through your to do list, treating it as an act of service to the world, numbed to the fact it’s unattainable and no where do you feature on the said list?
Do you feel pushed to say yes, just one more time for fear of being judged and not meeting others expectations. When all you really want to do is take a bath and live the simple life.
Are you someone that is constantly in your head, a deep feeler trying to make sense of this ever changing world? Someone who loves processing things, consistently feeling a little overwhelmed and depleted with the amount of information available today?
I hear you. Like you, I deal with these struggles to.
As someone who feels deeply, is highly sensitive, loves hanging around in her head, it hurts some days, values her alone time in nature pondering the meaning of life.
It can be hard some days, showing up for everyone else's needs first, leaving little time or energy left to to practice compassion and care for oneself.
Sometimes our lack of care for self comes from old childhood wounds, outdated conditioned beliefs or stories that no longer belong to us.
"I am not enough or worthy of my own love and care."
"Who am I to deserve some peace and stillness in my day, when I have others to tend to?"
Or the all to familiar "I don’t have time for self-care."
It is time my love to take care of you.
To ask the question
"What do I need in this moment- physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually?
To honour you first with nourishing daily practices.
I open my arms to you and welcome you to a world where "You Are Enough" just as you are in this moment. You are so precious and deserving of your own deep love and care.
My gift to you is a collection of small batch plant botanical skincare products that turn your ordinary everyday routines into loving sacred acts of self care, one product at a time.
I believe simplicity and aligning to the seasons of nature are vital to experiencing the aliveness of life, and have created a range I feel honours this by being seasonal, multi-purpose, and truly nourishing.
A self love ritual that feeds your skin, mind, body and soul.
I hope True Mindful Beauty becomes a gentle daily reminder on your own journey of self discovery, returning you to deeply loving yourself and coming home to the beautiful whole woman you already are.
A Personal Note. Meet the Maker Nicki.
My name is Nicki Hanning and I’m blessed to live at the base of the magical Southern Alps of New Zealand in an alpine town by the name of Lake Hawea, the birthplace of True Mindful Beauty.
Mum to two gorgeous kids, Arlo and Miela, and wife to an incredible, supportive husband, and forever friend to my loyal puppy dog, Sage, I live as openly and honestly as I can, staying true to what I value most.
These values of
-Simplicity and Seasonality
-Intention and Honour
-Nature connection and Community
have been instilled into every aspect of True Mindful Beauty.
I like to describe what I do as a fusion of Natures Alchemy with a twist of creative self expression from the Heart. Trust me, hundreds of hours in the past 17 years have lovingly gone into the development and creation of skin potions, formulas, and recipes and I’ve often felt a bit like a mad alchemist.
Much exploration,research, sourcing of organic and wild crafted botanical plants I harvest local plants through the seasons), oils, butters and clays and blending them into the perfect synergy, have culminated into these
Beautiful, pure plant botanical high vibrational blends. A gift from the innate wisdom of Mother Nature for you.
I lovingly craft everything by hand in micro batches in my home studio. I hand-pour my potent pure magic into miron glass vessels, labeling them and blessing them before I send each little parcel out into the world to you.
Each batch is infused with natures intuition. Plants change with the seasons, the rhythms of the Earth, the ebb and flow of the needs of the natural world – and this is uniquely reflected in every batch. There isn’t another like it in the whole wide world, just like you.
My products are made by me, someone who appreciates what true beauty means and doesn’t want to spend her life just working to pay the bills. Each product contains a tiny piece of my soul.
All the love and work that goes into each product, I dream and hope will give you a sense of deep inner peace when you hold it in your hands, pausing and mindfully anoint your beautiful self fully and wholeheartedly in the moment, in your home and your life. Honouring yourself with wild devotion.
I am a deep thinker and explorer of life, coming up as a Super Uber Highly Sensitive being on Elaine Aron questionnaire, and embody the archetypes of a Sage and Alchemist, which is very fitting and reflective of what I feel drawn to put out into the world.
With love and gratitude
MAY YOU FEEL LOVED. MAY YOU FEEL PEACE.
