With Love...A Survivor's Story
In honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lemongrass Spa is encouraging those bravely fighting any type of cancer to share their stories with us, and in return we will gift them one of our Loving Care Sets. Read one survivor’s inspiring journey to a fresh, clean & natural lifestyle.
Hello! My name is Heather Miller, Senior Director with Lemongrass Spa Products. I would like to share a little bit about my journey with Lemongrass Spa. In August of 2014, a friend of mine contacted me to share that she had just joined natural skin care company and wanted to send me a catalog and samples to try. I knew that if she loved them, they must be something special. My friend is a breast cancer survivor and meticulous about what goes on and in her body. When the products arrived, I was amazed at the purity of the ingredients used in these products. And the best part was how very well the products worked!
I too am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2011. At the time, my husband was deployed with the Marine Corps. I underwent 16 rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and 33 rounds of radiation treatments at the age of 37. My breast cancer was NOT genetic, I did not carry the BRCA gene and there was no history of breast cancer in my family. My cancer was labeled “Environmental”, in fact I was part of a clinical study and parabens were found in my breast tumor. That was a huge wakeup call for me!
My family went on a mission to go clean and green with our diet, cleaning products, and with our skin care. The diet and cleaning products were pretty easy to change over. However, I would spend hours researching skin care products only to end up frustrated and angry at what I found. So many products were labeled “hypo-allergic, organic, and natural” but when I would read the ingredients list, those products still contained harsh and even toxic chemicals.
I even tried making my own lotions and skincare products at home, and failed pretty miserably. I resorted to using with coconut oil, but my body still needed something else, I just could not seem to figure out what it was. So when the Lemongrass Spa products arrived from my friend, Lenora, the timing could not have been any better. The eczema on my back went away in 3 days. My skin was finally soft, vibrant, and HAPPY. I was hooked and I decided to join this amazing company without even attending a Spa Party, I was that impressed! I wanted to share these products with my family!
Lemongrass Spa products truly sell themselves. I don’t have to be pushy or salesy, I simply just share my story and why these products are so amazing! So many people are unaware about chemicals in skin care products. I love that I can share my knowledge with others while offering a safe, clean, and natural product! It is especially important to me to take my gift of being healed from breast cancer and use it to help others. I want to create “label” readers in others and their families. By doing so I hope to change the outcome for future generations.
Since September, my team has grown to a team of over 100 amazing ladies on my team Lemongrass Lassies! Together we are spreading health and wellness in over 26 states nationwide! Ladies, this kind of success in Lemongrass is achievable for you too! I qualified for director within 6 months!! I love that I can SHARE my passion for natural skin care, help grow and mentor other incredible women on my team, and together we are making a real difference in people’s lives. It is incredibly rewarding to hear back from clients who are so thankful that the products are helping their families and that their kids are becoming label readers too!!
I am so grateful that I can contribute to our family’s income and still have the flexibility of working from home and be able to choose when I work! I am there when my son comes home from school, to help with homework, and take him to his Taekwondo practice, it is really such a gift! I can block off my schedule to have lunch with friends or take a vacation!
Speaking of vacations, I have earned 2 amazing all-expense paid vacations with my husband courtesy of Lemongrass Spa! I earned this trip after being with the company for only 6 months! Can you believe that? It is amazing and so is the generosity of Lemongrass Spa! And it is not too late to join and earn the incentive to trip to Jamaica!
I am blown away by the ethics and integrity of our company. Heidi Leist, thoroughly researches every product that she creates to make sure that they are safe, nourishing, and natural for the skin. I am so proud to be a part of this company.
Now, I want you to think about something. How often do you need a new handbag, a piece of jewelry, or a kitchen tool? Occasionally, right? You usually think twice about the purchase too, I bet. Lemongrass Spa offers something that is so unique and different. Everyone needs skin care products each month and we offer skin care products for every member of the family! Our affordable, clean, & natural products quickly become our client’s favorites and they reorder! I have regular clients that reorder every single month. But what is even better are the bonds of trust and friendship that are created between myself and my clients. So many clients have become good friends in the process! These strong client connections will lead to referrals and reorders that will explode your business!
I want to encourage you to consider this amazing opportunity. The products, support, training, encouragement, and education are second to none. You are not alone or forgotten when you become a consultant. You will have a sisterhood of women who help show you the ropes, so you are off to a fast and successful start with Lemongrass Spa. Our Lemongrass University weekly calls, online training tools, and access to amazing up line directors are all there to help you succeed. Heidi Leist and the Leadership of Lemongrass really pour their hearts into the mission of empowering women to earn an income while helping families live a chemical free life!
This month is especially dear to my heart as Lemongrass Spa has an incredibly generous campaign going on to support those who are going through cancer treatment with their “With Love from Lemongrass Program”. During the month, they are accepting nominations for those who are battling cancer and honoring their journey with sending Loving Care Gift sets to those nominated. And to further the cause of supporting cancer patients, Lemongrass has created a Passionately Pink Campaign for the month of October where $1 is donated to Breast to the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization dedicated to the prevention and research of the causes of cancer. Their goal is to exceed $3,000 in donations! What an amazing, generous, and compassionate company to represent! My heart is full of gratitude and appreciation for their endeavors and support of cancer patients.
