Gracious Minds Manifesto
I believe the art of connection begins within. It is the manifestation of who we are as feeling human beings in reaction to the feeling or unfeeling acts of other humans, the natural world. at gracious minds We create sustainable well-being rituals in order to reconnect to self because we all need peace, joy and healing.
This is what the essence of Gracious Minds is all about; the idea of creating rituals. Returning to the self and nurturing the skin, mind and body as a whole.
Whilst the skincare and body products work to deliver results on an external level, the intent behind each one is that it is a deep act of self-care. The ingredients have purposely been selected to nourish and sooth inside and out, with scents and properties that relax the mind and create a grounding effect.
