How Little Buddha came into existence?
My name is Daisy, and I am the proud owner and founder of Little Buddha. We are a woman owned small business, nestled in the heart of Chattanooga, TN, we are a small business with a big passion for holistic well-being and eco-conscious living.
The inception of Little Buddha in 2018 marked a significant chapter in my personal journey. Having spent over 14 years navigating the corporate world, particularly in finance, I found myself at a crossroads prompted by stress, unhappiness, and a pervasive sense of unwellness. This pivotal moment led me to embark on a journey of self-discovery.
In the whirlwind of my professional career, I had inadvertently neglected my own self-care and never paid attention to the products I used and the food I consumed on a daily basis. It seemed almost inevitable that aging meant accepting fatigue, stress, and a disconnection from myself and others. The turning point arrived when I stood at the intersection of my career, health, and relationships, recognizing the urgent need for significant change.
My awakening began with an exploration into the foods I was eating, revealing astonishing truths about what was actually allowed to be what we consumed on a daily basis. This initial shock propelled me into scrutinizing everyday products, leading to a revelation that forever transformed my perspective. I was astonished to discover that the products we applied to our skin daily were full of artificial additives and harmful chemicals, both detrimental to our bodies and the environment. These seemingly revitalizing products were, in fact, sabotaging our health, with ingredients linked to hormone disruption, skin allergies, fertility concerns, and even cancer.
A deeply personal experience reinforced my unwavering commitment to this transformative journey. Witnessing my own mother's battle with cancer, triggered by toxic ingredients absorbed through her skin, proved the urgency of advocating for our health and our own well-being. Fueled by newfound purpose, I embarked on a path of education, immersing myself in the art of crafting skincare while learning to embrace a more mindful and conscientious way of life.
Through countless hours of self-taught expertise, my six-year journey as a Reiki Master, and extensive studying & practice in energy work and Ayurvedic studies, I curated the Organic & Eco-Conscious Self Care Skincare line that Little Buddha takes immense pride in offering. This collection transcends mere skincare; it elevates your daily rituals and prompts you to rekindle a mindful connection with yourself. These products are not only beneficial for your well-being and skin but also contribute to the health of our precious planet.
At Little Buddha, we believe education and empowerment is everything. We strive to guide our community towards informed skincare choices, promoting self-care as an essential practice. Mindful self-care transcends it all – it is an imperative activity that nurtures the mind, body, and soul, while also honoring our planet. We invite you to create a sanctuary with our products, a space where you can pause, breathe, and savor moments of self-care.
Through our offerings, we encourage you to establish mindful self-care rituals. By integrating our clean, organic, and non-toxic products into your daily routine, you have the ability to enrich your well-being on multiple dimensions. We aspire to inspire a community that values and embraces mindful self-care. By prioritizing yourself, you forge a deeper connection with your self and those around you, mitigate stress, and elevate your overall quality of life.
Join us in celebrating the transformative journey of self-care, where nature, meets mindful skincare. Let it become a catalyst for your own personal growth and well-being.
It is with deep gratitude that I welcome you to the Little Buddha Self Care tribe.
