How We Began
Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our website and read our story.
My name is Amanda. At the age of 26, I was diagnosed and treated for Endometrial Cancer.
7 months and one surgery later, I was diagnosed with Severe Ovarian Cysts that began to "twist" on the only reproductive organ that I had left (this meant emergency surgery or I would lose my life). After the removal of all of my reproductive organs and then some at such a young age, I was determined to spend the rest of my life doing what I love! Making and creating natural products as well as Jewelry to share with the world! (Well, Hopefully). As I was recovering from the second surgery, I noticed how expensive Jewelry online was. I remember thinking to myself "I could make that." So Began "Elegant Glim." formerly know as "S.J.D) After a couple of months had passed, I noticed how horribly broken out I was and NOTHING was working! How many chemicals (I couldn't pronounce) were in my soap that didn't even work? Because of my hormones or lack there of, I should say, I was broken out horribly, with ridiculously dry skin & nothing worked. So I began making MY OWN SKIN CARE LINE. I deemed it would always stay Botanical, Vegan, and Handmade, using only the best of Natural, Organic, & Vegan, Salts, Clay's, Florals, Oils, and other additives because I don't want anyone else to experience what I had, Regardless of the form it may appear in. I use the products on my son as well and he loves them!
Bug bites, Sunburn, Rashes, Scars, Acne, Dark Circles, Wrinkles, Large Pores, Cellulite, Dark Spots, Dry Scalp, Eczema, Psoriasis, Cracked Skin, Dry Skin, The possibilities are literally endless! As I expand the business and products I offer, I'll never forget why or where it all started. Thank you so much for reading my story and giving EG a try.
