Alchemy inspires a more contented life through art, human connection and rituals of self-care: The Art of Slow Living.
We offer henna body art, natural facials, botanical fragrances and a small batch skincare in our boutique. And we bring the Alchemy experience to street level with The Vardo.
Our gorgeous studio is tucked away on the third floor of an historic building in Downtown Ferndale. Alchemy is a beautiful, calm, welcoming place to host a henna party, experience one of our customized facials, and shop our boutique of niche, natural products.
Welcome to Alchemy. Let's stay connected...
Alchemy was born out of a desire for a life in balance. I wanted to create a life that allows me to fully embody a Slow-Living lifestyle. And by doing so, hold myself accountable: practice this self-care and inspire others to embrace this as well because I know the struggle is real.
Self-care isn’t selfish.
In a world of competing priorities, I believe rituals that encourage you to take care of you are a necessity. These devotions help slow you down, to remember to nurture yourself so you can effectively tend to life’s other demands. Whether it’s a facial or adorning henna body art, these moments for yourself enrich your soul especially with natural products, free from synthetic chemicals.
Alchemy uses natural ingredients
inspired by nature’s wisdom.
I crave authentic ingredients and interactions. I have always avoided synthesized, factory skin care in favor of making my own. In the early nineties, I purchased my first bottle of essential oil, which began my experiments in alchemy: soap making, lotions, potions and eventually henna.
To me, alchemy is where science
begins to feel more like magic.
Alchemy creates experiences through connection and intentional community. When you come to the studio, you will feel the and intimate environment which welcomes and encourages you to be in being in the moment and relax. Our vardo is extension of our studio experience so that we connect at a community level and continue to inspire purposeful living by bringing people together through authentic products and experiences.
