We’re so thrilled to have Echo Natural Beauty
join our list of amazing stockists in Portland. We asked them a few questions so that you can get to know them and their gorgeous store better. Enjoy!
1. What is your store name and where are you located?
2. What inspired you to open a green beauty spa?
We couldn’t find our favorite green beauty brands in Portland. We chose to combine the best natural products with great effective treatments. We really wanted to focus on green makeup because many of the toxic ingredients and chemicals are found in cosmetics.
3. What are your favorite Alima Pure products you carry and why?
We love the Satin Matte Foundations because we can find a perfect match for any skin color and the purity of the product. Our clients love the natural look and excellent coverage. We also love the eyeshadows for their rich pigment and staying power. Of course, we love that you are local and a great partner for sharing our passion for healthy beauty.
4. What do you do to stay healthy?
We regularly grab a spin, yoga or meditation class in the neighborhood! Luckily w
e can grab a green juice across the street or lunch at Prasad
when we are working. We also fit in time to get facials and massages around town or on our travels. We teach a weekly yoga class with Living Yoga, a non-profit outreach program teaching yoga as a tool for personal change to populations who would
otherwise not have access to it.
5. What makes you happiest?
Time with friends and family, massages, pedicures, trying new things, good food, laughter, challenging ourselves, good design, sunshine, friendship, empowering women, exercising
6. Please share one of your favorite recipes.
We love this salad dressing and tastes good on anything. We make it all the time.
Lemon Ginger Dressing (makes 2 cups)
1 cups fresh lemon juice
2 whole cloves garlic
2 tablespoons minced ginger
2 tablespoons Nama Shoyu soy sauce (or Bragg’s Amino Acids)
2 heaping tablespoons of raw honey (more if you desire a sweeter taste)
3/4 cups of cold-pressed olive oil
Place all of the ingredients except the oil in a blender. Begin blending at normal speed. As the mixture is blending, slowly add the oil until it’s completely blended.
7. What’s your favorite thing about living in the Pacific Northwest?
We are both Portland natives! We love meeting all the new clients who have moved to Portland and the tourists visiting our beautiful city. We love living here and hiking in Forest Park, going to the Gorge, heading to Mt. Hood or the Oregon Coast on the weekends.
