In 1991 I bought my first bottle of ylang ylang and I have been enchanted by the essence of plant magics ever since. At that time finding quality plant-based skincare meant making it yourself - so I did. Soap-making. Lotions, creams, all of it. And later henna and perfumery
- it's all plants in here!
I consider myself to be a student of henna - always practicing the forms, improving my skills and learning about the history and cultures that have a tradition of henna body art.

'Alchemy' reflects my belief in science and magic.
My husband and I live in Ferndale with our two teens and two dogs. I have a BS in Recreation and Leisure Studies and am a licensed Esthetician.
