My alchemist journey started in the nineties with the purchase of a single essential oil and a simple recipe for skin care. I was completely enchanted by how simple science could feel magical, plus it was effective and smelled amazing.
In college, I studied the effects of leisure time on the body and the brain while getting a degree in Recreation & Leisure Studies. The science of rest and restorative practices and the science of wellness with plants come together nicely.
Creativity has always been part of me. Twenty years later, I was inspired to mix up henna as a way to connect with my kids. I’ve always been drawn to plant based products that connect me to my roots - soap making, paper making, collage, or handcrafted skincare whipped up in my kitchen.
Infusing all these passions and artistry, the magic of Alchemy, my business, was launched….and literally, I was afraid my husband would say “Hey, Sweet, we really are going to need you to get a job”. So I created my own work and reality.
