Our Story

I’ve always loved nature, animals, birds and bees so when I turned 35, in 2015 and started to see the signs of aging in my skin, I turned to the internet to see how I could use natural ingredients to care for my skin and discovered The Oil Cleansing Method, which back then was just starting to make headway with women in North America (before I go on, I should state that if I had discovered OCM in 2022, I would have never started Simple Rituals. The market is saturated with oil cleansers now but back in 2015, they were hard to find.). I was also a regular reader of Crunchy Betty and need to give credit to this blog for igniting my passion for all things crunchy especially for educating me on OCM. 


Basically, Simple Rituals was born from a desire to stop using toxic chemicals on my skin. I then had such great success with my friend’s skin that I knew I had to share my magical creation with people who were looking to do the same. It really is that simple. 


It’s been a 7-year education in so much– business, finance, accounting, mental health, design, strategy, human relations, e-commerce, social media, who I am and my principles, handling rejection, change– and many other lessons. 


Our guiding principle for Simple Rituals has always been to provide you with the tools you need to grow healthy skin. This is why don’t spend a lot of time developing new products. I think what I offer is everything you need to take care of your face in a holistic and natural way. Working with nature instead of trying to beat it. That being said, I reserve the right to craft new items as my knowledge grows and things interest me. I will only sell the creations I truly believe can be of even more benefit without sacrificing nature.
