My foundation for understanding plants and the healing they offer stems from practicing aromatherapy and aesthetics. I am selective and careful in my own practices of sustainability and do not take from endangered ecosystems. I support healthy skin but no longer promote plants for their exclusive use to achieve external beauty, their medicine is complex as well as precious.


The longer I work with plants, the deeper my understanding for their right to have a healthful life experience and not be subjected to over harvesting, misunderstanding and human greed. We are in relationship with life forms whose time and experience on this planet far surpass our collective knowledge as humans.

Desert walks in Tucson inspired the use of creosote as an
 ingredient for two botanical oil blends I've formulated.

Botanical Formulations

Oil Infusions are created by soaking plants, herbs and flowers in botanical oils. Plants that produce botanical oils include Safflower, Apricot, Olive, Prickly pear, Tamanu and more.

Some oil infusions steep for up to 6 months. I allow the process to unfold naturally and am guided by the how the botanicals are absorbed into the various oil bases. 

With time and attention, and using a cold infusion method, the botanical oils absorb the added ingredients (plants/herbs/flowers) to treat pain, muscle spasms, or calm and condition the skin.  Through exposure to music, sometimes a full moon or an eclipse and ​Solfeggio frequencies, the oils are infused with additional energies.

Botanical Oil Infusions

Frankincense infused in olive oil
Oils after a full moon
Botanical oils resting in morning sun, following a full moon.
This Frankincense resin infused for a year in a quiet safe space, brought out for special occasions, like new moon and eclipse energy.

It has been invaluable for medicine and blends ranging from skin repair to providing emotional comfort. In addition to the physical attributes Frankincense may offer an emotional sensation of grounding and assist with meditation and spiritual connection.

I use this ancient tree resin sparingly because of the increased endangerment to the Frankincense trees. See my Resource Page for details. 

Bespoke Herbal Steam 

Bespoke herbal steams can be used for sinuses, pores, even meditation. Your personalized herbal mixture will provide between 3 and 4 facial steams. A friend showed me how to re-use my herbal steam in a footbath and get an additional use from this product. I love this because it provides you with two self care opportunities (an herbal steam and additional foot bath) with one product. 


Inhalation of herbs and flowers can clear sinuses, and infuse mucus membranes (eyes, nose and mouth) with anti-microbial essential oils released by the plants as they are heated by the hot water. Plant blends can assist with clearing pores and reducing breakouts. They can support immune system before/during and after illness/allergies.


And, I find when I steam I bring my awareness into the present, notice the sensation of heat, the aroma of the plants, the relaxation in my shoulders as I inhale deeply, awareness on the breath, the movement of the herbs in the water...set your timer for 8 minutes and give your Self this moment.

“The human race is challenged more than ever before to demonstrate our mastery, not over nature but of ourselves.”

Rachel Carson

The process for making medicine matters.
How we treat plants and our ecosystem matters.
People committed to preserving Our environment go the extra mile to make sure the botanicals they are using are free from pesticides and other environmental pollutants. 
People who love plants will choose botanicals from ethically harvested areas, as well as ethically minded businesses including fair wages for all agricultural labor (plant tenders). 
Our plants and trees are under threat, let's be conscious of how we consume.
