E V E RY WO M A N H A S A STO RY, AND SO DOES HER SKIN. Norabloom Botanicals offers a holistic approach to beauty, health and wellness. Everyone can enjoy our skin care line. Locals can enjoy our beauty lounge.
Norabloom has always been an extension of who I am as a woman, an esthetician, and as a creative entrepreneur. After 18 years in the beauty industry, I continue to adhere to my philosophy that skin care should be clean, simple, and honest. Professional treatments should be relaxing and your skin should feel amazing. As a result, the Norabloom brand continues to evolve. My theme word is SIMPLIFY. Norabloom is a reflection of where I am today. Life is good, life is simple, and life is honest. “Every woman has a skin story, and so does her skin.” As an esthetician, I can tell so much about a woman’s life by looking at her skin. Norabloom strives to support a woman’s process of finding her place in this world, being true to herself, and finding peace, love and joy through education and healthy lifestyle choices (food, love and passion for life). I hope you continue to enjoy our philosophy as embodied in our treatments and skin care products.

C H E M OTH E R A PY & YO U R S K I N Chemotherapy and radiation can break down the skin’s outer layer, causing dryness, itching, rashes, and wounds. These treatments also interfere with new cell growth, creating “thin” skin. Once skin has been compromised, its natural barrier is damaged and the skin does not retain moisture as effectively. This can make the skin appear aged and cause fine lines to appear. Compromised skin is also more susceptible to injury and more vulnerable to toxins, ultraviolet rays, infection, allergens, and harsh chemical ingredients in many commercial skin and body products. DOS & DON’TS Avoid hormone creams, such as products that contain hydrocortisone. If you choose facials and massage therapy treatments, please make sure that your practitioner is skilled in oncology esthetics and/or oncology massage. Avoid waxing, manicures and pedicures. Nourish and soften your cuticles daily with our organic Norabloom Rosehip & Carrot Serum. Use an ice cube to soothe itchy hot areas of the scalp due to wigs.

R EC I P E S K A LE , P E A S , R A S P B E R R I E S A N D C U P CA K E S I know that it seems like a strange combination but these are a few of my favorite things. I love kale in just about everything! I love the way it looks, feels and tastes. Yes, I am the weirdo that massages my kale with olive oil before I mix it into my salad. Kale is queen if you ask me. It is one of the healthiest and most nutritious plant foods on the planet. Not only is it loaded with nutrients, it has medicinal powers too. It is loaded with powerful antioxidants and is an excellent source of Vitamin C, high in Beta-Carotene, and contains sulforaphane which is known to fight the formation of cancer at the molecular level. Peas are not only adorable little green dots of goodness, they also contain high levels of antioxidants and aid in blood sugar regulation. They give you energy and help build a strong immune system. Raspberries are nature’s candy! These little sweeties also contain powerful antioxidants that work against free radicals as well as having a high polyphenol content that may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. I adore raspberries on a slab of brie. Cupcakes need no explanation. They are a well deserved sweet treat enjoyed in moderation and in times of celebration.
H O LLY ’ S FAVO R ITE LU N C H Toss Around: • Chopped Kale massaged in EVO • Peas • Grape Tomatoes • Carrots • Green Onions • Red Pepper • Feta Cheese • Cashews or Pecans • Raspberries
Dressing: • 3 T apple cider vinegar • 2 T local honey • 1 T balsamic vinegar • 1/2 T dijon mustard • 1 clove of garlic • pinch of sea salt • 1/4 C EVO

Frosting: • 1/2 C dairy-free butter (1 stick), room temperature • 1 T vanilla extract • 3 C powdered sugar • 1 T dairy-free milk (Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
Frosting: 6. In a medium mixing bowl, beat together dairy-free butter and vanilla paste until smooth and creamy. 7. Gradually add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well. Alternate one cup of powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of dairy-free milk until all ingredients are blended. 8. Beat in additional dairy-free milk if needed to obtain desired constancy. 9. Frost and do a little happy dance around the kitchen!
