Chartel, Founder of GOLD+WATER CO.®

Self-care can sound like an unaffordable luxury to many. It doesn’t always feel acceptable to take the time to sit. And soak. In a tub. Or in our feelings. Yet I have found that even seemingly small moments of paying attention to how I am feeling and what my physical needs are, have been an act of resistance and self-preservation during turbulent moments in my own life.

It is my mission to remind you that YOU ARE THE LUXURY. Caring for one's self *well* is not optional. It does not need to take hours. It does not need to deplete your bank account. It is a moment of quiet. It is a deep breath. It is washing with a beautiful soap. It is undoing the day. Like spreading on a body butter, it is residual. It is intentional.

I hope to continue to create products and advocate for resources that are precious gold and cleansing waters, in the midst of life’s inevitable refining fires.
