Where do you live

Currently i am living in my converted van.

What is the story of your brand and how would you like it to evolve

I started Herb and Lunar Botanics as a way to share with others how they can integrate the healing energies of herbs through their every day self care rituals. These moments of self care should be slow and cherished. I believe most of the products we use for our self care are created by machinery and no longer by the power of the hands. Everything is mass produced and there's no ritual in the making. There's something energetically special when everything is made by hand. The herbal creations is done by hand, slow and cherished at Herb and Lunar Botanics and in the process is a ritual. I'd like it to evolve by adding more hand made products to use for your every day self care rituals. I'd like to be able to teach workshops so that those who are interested can create their own products so they know exactly whats happened in the process.

What inspires you and helps you get into a creative flow

When I'm in nature or by the ocean. Also other wo/men who are living their lives creating and being passionate about nature.

What is the message that you want to express through your product/service

That every day is a self care ritual. When you have a shower and what you put on or in your body is a ritual. Maybe we've forgotten the sacredness to it all because a lot of the stuff we include in our self care isn't made with the nicest most healing things. Time and effort have been made with the products at H&LB, intentions, love and all hand made.

What does the word beauty evoke for you 

Beauty for me is being balanced in a wholistic way - spiritually, mentally, physically. Being grateful for all that surrounds you. It's seeing the beauty in all things even it may not appear to be because in everything is the Divine/Nature.

What is a motto/quote you are living by right now

"You only fear when you have a model of how it has to be"
- Ram Das.
