The Herbal Alchemist
My skincare routine transformed the way I connect with my body. Now, as The Herbal Alchemist, I’m working to spread that love to others with intentional, plant- powered skincare products.
After my mom's passing, I disconnected from my body and the world around me to cope. My indifference came to a head with an embarrassing bout of eczema that left me feeling ashamed that I didn't know how to care for myself. Everything seemed so expensive or had unpronouncable ingredients. It felt like the glamorous products I saw advertised weren't meant for someone like me.
I realized I had internalized the idea that I didn't deserve to experience luxury, or indulge in the loving self-care rituals that came with it. I was settling for less than I deserved because of my bank balance, and was ready to break the cycle.
I turned to plant medicine, as my mom did before me to learn how the gifts of the Earth could help, and was amazed by the results. Not only was my skin clearing up, but I also experienced the powerful results of slowing down to spend intentional time showing love to my body.
I felt a connection to my Self I didn't realize I was missing.
My skincare routine, which began as a necessity to avoid unsightly dryness turned into a daily healing ritual that transformed the way I care for myself. It reminds me that I am worth and deserving of the clean ingredients, time and effort that I get to nourish my body with each day.
I added positive affirmations added into these daily rituals and quickly noticed a boost to my confidence, self esteem, the way I move and how I treat my body. I believe everyone deserves to experience the bliss that comes with loving self care, fueled by natural ingredients. It's all about connection. Not perfection.
