Jenette’s journey into alternative medicine began in her early twenties after suffering from severe Pre-Menstrual disorders and being fed up with Western medical solutions – Prozac and oral contraception. These prescriptions only made her more irritable and caused intense long-term side effects. Deciding to take her health in her own hands, she embarked on a new path of health and well-being with the support of an acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor.
Through this mission, she was introduced to the world of Chinese herbs and adaptogens, and quickly became a believer in this new and different approach to overall health and well-being. The shift she felt in her own health gave her the confidence to start playing around with Chinese herbs in her treatment rooms. Treating everything from acne, to chronic inflammation and aging skin, Jenette found that she was able to treat most skin conditions with her homemade solutions, providing her clients with immediate healing, lifting and calming results.
The only problem with these homemade products based on a unique combination of Chinese herbs: the smell was rather intense and sent the olfactory senses screaming. So Jenette, with the assistance of her 2 young children (at the time) Beckett and Love, came up with a way to mask the intense smell and turn it into something quite delicious and miraculous to the senses. The smell was so good that when Beckett and Love were bottling the very first batch of this miracle mask, they both kept asking if they could taste it. Jenette said why not, and so they did. The bitter taste immediately had Beckett ask, “Mama, can we Just Add Sugar?”. So Jenette replied, “Sure, just add sugar and it will taste like dessert!”. After a good dose of sugar, Love asked to taste it again…and again…and the “Just Add Sugar” Miracle Mask was born. Needless to say, there is no actual sugar in the mask, but the name was catchy, and clients loved it.
Jenette soon found herself in her spa experimenting with a wide range of ingredients and formulas, focusing on natural ingredients that could effectively address her customers’ varying needs. Over the course of the last five years, she landed on a series of formulas that delivered undeniable results; successfully treating aging and acne. And so it began…
