Meet Etsy seller Sylvia Parker, the force behind ClearEssential. ClearEssential has tons of great natural and botanical skin care products, including bath salts, moisturizers, lotions and scrubs, acne and anti aging remedies. All of Sylvia’s products are made with essential oils and the power of herbs, plants and trees to help you look your best.
I met Sylvia via my Etsy Item of the Day shop submission page. When I visited her shop, I was immediately drawn to this lavender scented gift set, which is listed for $35.00. I think gift sets are a great way to try out new beauty products to see if they are a good fit. This set includes:
- 2oz Relax Massage Balm Honey & Lavender scented with Shea & Cocoa Butter
- 4oz Serenity Epsom Bath Salt Soak infused with Lavender essential oil
- 4oz Shine Body Lotion with Honey,Milk and Lavender scented
- 2oz Glow Sugar Body Scrub delightful with just a hint of Lavender
- 4oz Natural Shower Gel Sulfate free with nourishing Shea Butter
“I am a mom of 2 and have made creams and lotions and medications for 15+ years now as I used to be a compounding pharmacy technician,” Sylvia told me. “While working at the pharmacy, I made incredible medications for very sick people but also wondered, if there is not a more natural approach to it. I started my research and passion for herbal remedies. I feel there needs to be a good balance and that aromatherapy/herbal remedies have a valid place in medicine.I pondered with the idea of making natural skin care products for quiet a while and finally made the jump.”
“I love what I am doing, I love it to be green and be environmentally responsible,” she continued. “Why would you want to put artificial chemicals on your skin if there is a natural alternative out there that works just as well if not better?”
When she’s not working on new products for her shop, Sylvia stays busy.
“I really like to work out…and eat. I want to keep my body in the best shape possible,” she told me. “I love Bikram yoga and “Willpower and Grace,” a pilates like cardio/leg workout. I enjoy the time I have with my kids and going on bike rides and I am always on a hunt for new dinner recipes.”
Sylvia’s advice to those selling on Etsy is to love what you are doing and believe in yourself. “I saw a lot of people doubting themselves,” she said. “Then have a plan or a list of what you want to do. Have a vision and keep working on it. Learn as much as you can about tags and how to optimize your store and network, network, network. You won’t believe what opportunities may knock on your door.”
