InJoy. Be.'s Her-story
Starting InJoy. Be.
Written by Rica Casey
I found the healing power of joyful skin care products early on in life. I experimented a lot with different body care products, making "potions" and discovering what did and did not feel good on my skin and hair.
In 2012, after an emotionally abusive relationship and a few DUIs, I felt my life was at the bottom. I was empty inside and out; I had no friends and no self-love. I got sober in early 2012 (thanking the Gods), and I struggled to find ways to keep my spirits up. I was broken on the inside - I was in a deep depression, and my anxiety was at an all-time high.
Therapy (both mental health and outpatient addiction therapy) spoke of the benefits of working with my hands, as well as the anxiety-lessening effects of purposefully attending to the skin. I found myself returning to my childhood love of mixing ingredients for skincare and hair care. I got more intentional about what I was mixing, and I started reading up on the benefits of certain ingredients, and what contents were detrimental to the skin's health and toxic to the body.
InJoy. Be. was born out of the result of the profound experiences I had while going through the spiritual journey to heal my heart and spirit. I delved deeper into energy work and the power of intention, and I was encouraged deeply to always care for myself. I didn't know how to do that in any way except for physically at the time. It was only when I used my products that I was able to feel any sort of joy when all around me was pain.
