I have been ‘nudged’ to Blog more, so here it is, the begginning of my writing career alongside my beauty, holistic and wellbeing work! Seriously, I feel compelled to share more with you all so I hope you grab 5 and a cuppa and read a little more about The Kind Living Salon.
I have wanted to talk about veganism for a long time, I have never found the right time, the right words. So here goes my first step towards sharing what I know about veganism and how it effects my life and business …you dont have to be vegan to care…or do you?
Now, that being said, to be a client of The Kind Living Salon you do NOT have to be a vegan, not even a vegetarian or Pescitarian or any other ‘arian’ to access the healing, supportive and kind treatments and products at the salon.
But it is a good question – the true definition of a vegan according to Wiki is;
“Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. A follower of the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan. Distinctions may be made between several categories of veganism. Dietary vegans refrain from consuming meat, eggs, dairy products, and any other animal-derived substances. An ethical vegan is someone who not only follows a vegan diet but extends the philosophy into other areas of their lives, and opposes the use of animals for any purpose. Another term is “environmental veganism”, which refers to the avoidance of animal products on the premise that the industrial farming of animals is environmentally damaging and unsustainable.”
I guess I would have to say I am an ethical vegan based on this definition, however, I now understand the huge benefits of the lifestyle on my mental and physical health too. The benefits for me have been huge. I feel lighter, more healthy, more free and more aware of the beautiful Earth I live on and share with others.
I do encourage all of my clients to understand my ethos of ‘Beauty wrapped in Kindness’ so that they are reassured that they are not only having pure, organic, natural and kind ingredients placed on their skin, nails but overall, it is all safe and kind for within.
This reassurance is given through a full consulation and a non-judement process of discovery. Whether derived from Ayurvedic knowledge and practice or Western science, the process of ensuring a restorative and holistic experience at the salon is paramount.
If a client wishes to discuss veganism, organic and natural products, kind therapies and holistic wellbeing, alongside any beauty or make-up queries, then I offer a charged 1 hour or 2 hour 1-2-1 Personal Care Plan or a discovery 15 minute consultation for free.
Vegan Beauty – Kindness to Self and Others
The KInd Living Salon
When you become a client of The Kind Living Salon you enter a full agreement that at any time during the consultation process – you can change your mind. You can decide what being kind to YOU is.
For example; I offer bolt on options to every treatment in the menu so you can create a bespoke experience for yourself and others anytime. You can incorporate massage, facial, hand, foot or body care and head healing, relaxation and rejuvination with every minute that you are in the salon. There is no limit to what amount of time you wish to allocate to your experience as long as it is booked. It is a journey of discovery with every choice.
Moving Towards Kindness…
The Kind Living Salon
I believe that every human instinctively is born with compassion, empathy and love. It is only the societal and cultural influences of the elders, media, corporations and system that influences the way the children grow, learn and experience the world around them. It is our choice to change that too.
I dont like using the word ‘cognitive dissonance’ but I myself have been accused many time of having a ‘dogma’ that suits my choices, so I am always cautious of using such terms around anyone who doesnt share my ethos. I am not in a position to judge, I am here to suppor and share.
I dont know everything, but I now know a lot more and feel it is my duty as a human being of this Earth to share the love, kindness and comapssion I have found in my lifestyle choice, which I hope encourages others to seek this for themselves.
