A message from Julie…
I created my first skin oil as an act of love. When I couldn’t find a product to safely soothe and heal my babies’ eczema, I did what any mother would do: I took their health and wellbeing into my own hands. With research and hard work, I developed an all-natural oil that succeeded where mass-market products had failed. Their skin’s delicate perfection was restored… and so was my faith in myself.
Years later, when I came up against my own skin issues — dryness, dullness, redness and sensitivity — I once again experienced frustration with the options available. “Natural” alternatives consistently fell short on results; chemical-based products seemed to make my skin worse, and carried risks I wasn’t willing to take.
So, through more study, research, and testing, I devised a luxurious, naturally-derived, nutrient-rich oil that finally gave me the skin I had always longed for: smooth, soft, fresh, and glowing with good health. Friends and family soon began commenting on my transformed appearance and demanding to know my secret. Happily, I shared my creation, and everyone who tried it experienced the same beautiful results — and wanted more. I realized I had created a product that filled a real need among women seeking a safe, natural, truly effective skin care alternative.
I have always found my greatest inspiration in nature, with its miraculous ability to shelter, protect, and nourish, to weather storms and emerge stronger, and to be beautiful in all its different forms.
You and I are a part of this miracle. We have the same power to overcome any challenge, achieve any goal, and be happy and beautiful through it all. I created Lykke by Julie to help you see, feel, and experience the power of nature — the power of YOU — every day, in an intimate and immediate way.
An act of love then. An act of love now. May you enjoy it.
”There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.”
Lady Marguerite Blessington (1789 – 1849)
Ever since I was a child, I have thrived on making people happy. In fact, of the four siblings in my family, my parents used to call me “Sunshine.” Igniting joy in the people around me was my number one goal.
As I grew older, however, I realized that I couldn’t satisfy everyone. At first, that realization drained and scared me. Then one day it dawned on me that people are responsible for their own happiness… including me. So I started to make sure that I was taken care of and nurtured myself, before trying to transfer those feelings to the world.
Immersing myself full-time in the production of oils, I experienced a sense of joy and happiness I had never known. Sure enough, that joy miraculously flowed through me and my products to those who used them. They saw the results — glowing skin, nourished skin, healthy skin — and were happy. Beautiful and happy.
Seeing you happy makes me happy. It’s as simple as that!
When it came time to choose a name for my new company, I knew that only one word would do: Lykke – ‘happiness’ in my native Norwegian, the country where so much of my own happiness had been born.
‘Lykke’ also describes a state of true satisfaction in accomplishing a goal or dream. I am now living my dream every day, and am so grateful for the opportunity to do so. I love what I do, and am deeply satisfied with the oils I’ve created for you.
Try them once, and you will be too.
