The Essences of Egypt


After finishing my certification as a Cosmetician
and Make-up Artist I worked for many of the big
cosmetic companies. I can say, with confidence,
that none of the products these companies produce
can compare with the amazing products that you
can make using essential oils and pure, natural
ingredients, with no preservatives.”-Leslie Zehr
