About Creations By Cassandra
Creations By Cassandra™ (CBC) is a company focused on promoting health, wellness, and abundant living through a holistic framework. Cassandra (hence the name), CBC's founder and visionary, launched the company and website as an extension of her long-standing and diverse interests in holistic-living, including:
- alternative medicine
- herbal and organic products
- toxin-free living
- Mind-Body-Spirit interdependence
Cassandra strategically blends her extensive professional education and experience as a registered nurse, and masters-prepared clinical nurse counselor, with her passionate and extensive holistic-living research and study. The result of which is the CBC product brand and lifestyle perspective reflected on this website.
Cassandra's profession brings her in close proximity to those suffering the effects of various physical maladies. She has enormous compassion for those in her care and within her sphere of influence. Compassion is indeed a hallmark of her efforts to contribute to their well-being. Her compassion extends also to the preventative side of medical care. As she educates and helps optimize the lifestyle of others, Cassandra seeks to be an example of the holistic living principles she advocates. She credits her progressive personal and professional growth in part to the transformative effects of her lifestyle which includes:
- spiritual, positive, and conscious-living
- vegetarian/organic diet
- alternative medicine
- creative, artistic, and personal development
She personally recognizes the importance a healthy and balanced lifestyle has on one's health and well-being. Her insights, gleaned from extensive research, into the harmful effects of toxic chemicals, additives, and preservatives found in many grocery foods and consumer products led her to make significant personal changes. This research path culminated in the development of CBC and this site.
Today, Cassandra, along with her devoted staff and affiliates, spends much of her time overseeing the growth of CBC. In spite of this significant demand, she still finds time for travel, bellydancing, a diverse exercise regimen, and other fun and creative pursuits. She indeed "practices what she preaches".
Cassandra points to a watershed moment that was pivotal in the transformation of her knowledge into the CBC product brand, business, and website. It occurred after she received a relaxing, spa facial treatment. Upon leaving the spa, she reflected about more natural facial treatment alternatives. So began her extensive research on facials, aromatherapy, bath and body products, among other subjects.
One book in particular, "Natural Soapmaking" by Marie Browning, presented several creative ideas to custom-make your own, more natural, bath and body products and was a catalyst in the formation of CBC. Her continuing research reinforced her knowledge of the harmful chemicals and ingredients found in many commercial-brand products. Since she was already particular about what she put INTO her body, she resolved to be even more circumspect about what she put ONTO her body.
So began CBC. After purchasing needed equipment and raw materials she began formulating and testing her own soaps, candles, shower gels, lotions, and many other bath/body and household products. She shared and received feedback on her creations from family, friends, professional associates, and others before determining she had a viable base to turn her interest into a full-fledged enterprise.
Creations By Cassandra™ was launched in the fall of 2004 and has expanded significantly since then. CBC has many loyal customers and a product brand that is well-received in the marketplace. CBC's products differ from many other bath and body products in that they are made as close to natural as possible. Many of CBC's products are all natural, while others have minimal added ingredients to preserve freshness.
CBC's products are designed to enhance each customer's natural beauty, physical and emotional constitution, and general well-being. Additionally, they are formulated to combat the residual toxins found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and many of the products we use. Key characteristics of CBC's health-promoting product ingredients are:
- Premium Quality
- Hypo-allergenic (most products)
