What is Inspirit?

Inspirit means to fill with spirit, cheer, to hearten. To put spirit into, give life or courage. It is also the name of my new line of soaps created to help cleanse and strengthen the spirit, promote self-love and give positive messages to women. Soaps with a mission to redefine beauty.

I was inspired to create this line one day as I became aware of the poor opinion many women, including me, have of themselves for many reasons but especially about the way they look. It seems we have this idea that beauty is something we don't already possess and must obtain. It is not hard to see why we would think that. We receive thousands of negative messages about ourselves every day by companies who make products that will "fix" us.

Since the beginning of time, it seems, we have been trying to achieve beauty. Women of the past have used contraptions, creams, herbs, even toxic or lethal substances because they thought it would make them beautiful. In modern times we are no different and will use anything regardless of the pain or dangers they pose.

Inspirit soaps are here to tell women they are beautiful. Beauty comes from within and has nothing to do with wrinkles or smooth skin. It has nothing to do with how young you are, how much you weigh or the color of your hair. It is what people see in you not on you. Certainly someone can look beautiful but to be beautiful is an attitude that starts with love and love starts with self-love.

The way we think and feel about ourselves is what makes us who and what we are. If we are always thinking there is something wrong with us that needs fixing then we are not accepting or loving ourselves. We are all beautiful creations with a spirit, that invisible part of us that makes us who we are. Everyday we say negative things to ourselves over and over again until we believe them. One of my favorite quotes by Henry David Thoreau is

"Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate."

If we are constantly being told by ourselves that there is something wrong with us and that we are not beautiful then that is what we become to ourselves. So how do we change that? We redefine beauty and change our minds by saying positive things to ourselves. We cleanse our spirit so we can see the beauty we already have inside us. Real beauty that starts with self love and radiates outward as love and beauty.

This is the inspiration for Inspirit. I wanted to do something more than just sell soap. I wanted to start a trend in the world where people see themselves as the divine creations they are, to redefine beauty. I want women to see the beauty they already possess.

To help achieve this goal I give you Inspirit. These soaps help you to experience self-love and inner beauty by giving you positive messages to meditate on while you are showering or bathing. Each bar comes with a loving affirmation statement, is scented with an essential oil blend designed to be uplifting, supportive,and to aid in meditation and reaching your higher self. Meditation is a great way to transform yourself from the inside out. It helps you achieve peace, reduce stress, learn about yourself and communicate with your spirit.

I hope you will enjoy and benefit from Inspirit and join me in redefining beauty for all women.
