Blair has been supplying us with his stunning products for years now and is one of MyTreat's biggest supporters. He has help us to include in our subscription boxes everything from teeth whitening, amazing facially yours face serum, damage control essential oil spray for joint and muscle relief, healing balm and this month the beautiful Smile essential oil and the Chakra Lava Stone Bracelet.
Blair is always a pleasure to deal with and nothing ever seems to be a problem with him so we asked him some questions to get to know the man behind the beautiful smile.
What is your favourite form of selfcare?
Massage! It brings me bliss and helps me meditate and provides relief to my muscle aches and pains. I try allow myself to enjoy this at least once every fortnight if I can - because it helps me relax and generally just feel better - which empowers me to do better in my daily tasks and activities!
What do you enjoy the most in your work?
I feel so blessed and appreciative of the fact that I have created a life where I can work from home which is a stunning 10 acre block of paradise in Takahue Valley, where Nudi Point (the secret swimming hole where the name came from) exists. I love that our factory is here, I love getting the feedback we do from our customers letting us know that our products have healed or helped a condition they've had for years, or that their skin has never looked better, or other things like that. I love being able to travel around this beautiful country, meeting new and existing stockists and attending expos where we get to meet face to face with new and existing customers and have amazing chats about what they love and why.
What inspired you to do what you are doing?
I studied and was certified in Aromatherapy when I was a teenager. Since I can remember I have been fascinated with nature and all things natural - essential oils being one of the most interesting things I've had a passion for my entire life. When I was in my mid-twenties, I became increasingly aware of the chemicals and synthetic ingredients cosmetic, skin and hair care companies were putting in their products. I have always put product in my hair and started wondering if what I was putting in it was going to make my hair fall out later in life! I conducted a bit of research and ordered some ingredients and gave a go and making a hair pomade. The result was INCREDIBLE and so I thought "I wonder what else I can start to make?". This lead me on this incredible journey to where we are today with over 60 stockists in NZ and growing fast.
What hobbies and activities do you like to take part in?
I sing and write music, with my guitar and piano. That's probably my biggest passion after Nudi Point (or fair equal?!). I love gardening, playing with my dog Storm (Labrador-Retriever), spending time with family and friends, oh and travel! I love travel. I am obsessed with Nature and take the greatest pleasure from being a part of it, exploring it, growing and nurturing plants. I adore animals! From the smallest to the largest beast - I would have acres and acres of an animal rescue farm if I had the time.
Do you have any words of wisdom you’d like to share with our subscribers?
Don't take life too seriously. Live life how you want to live it. We all create our own reality... either consciously or not... many years ago I decided I wanted to be a conscious creator of my life, rather than just react to things and events that "happened" to me. I have created a life I am in love with and am so much happier than I ever was in my younger years because of it. We can literally create anything we desire if we believe in it and stop doing the things that we do sometimes that keep them from turning into reality!
