Your Resident Alchemist
My name is Monica Fine. I am a certified natural perfumer, Aveda trained licensed aesthetician, professional distiller, remedy maker, and skin care formulator. I understudy with the legendary Jeanne Rose, and you can too. This is a serious medicine, and a magical journey. It is equally about, you opening up to your innate wisdom in knowing what herbs and scents suit you, as it is about me knowing how to effectively address the ailments and intentions you bring to me. I have been transformed deeply by herbs and aromatherapy, and it is my greatest pleasure to share it with you. In my 5 gallon copper stilI, I distill whatever I can that is organic or wild crafted and sustainably grown and harvested. That floral water along with a lab full of raw materials is then made into seasonal skin care products and remedies for immediate use. The products change frequently based on what is in season, the lifestyle of the season, and the theme or focus of the season. If you are open to them, gemstone/color therapy, mayan dreamspell readings, tarot, the zodiac, and more can be included. Thank you for your interest, let's talk!
Aromatherapy - The Alchemy of Your Essence
ESSENTIAL OILS ARE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO HAVE REGULATORY EFFECTS ON BRAIN CHEMISTRY. The art of extraction and use of its medicine by application, inhalation, or ingestion is called Aromatherapy. It also happens to be incredibly magical as it is deeply rooted in the alchemical arts since many chemicals in essential oils are only produced thru the distillation process. Custom Aromatherapy Blends offer a tangible reminder as well as a definitive medicine for what you need mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually at any given time (and it will change!). Allow your custom scent to represent everything you wish for yourself at this moment. We can put that custom blend into any and all base products of your choice. This will allow you to use your scent everyday multiple times a day by topical application as well as inhalation, thereby making sure you are reminded daily of your purpose. Roll on perfumes, body scrubs, bubble baths, cleansers, spritzers, body nectars and lotions bases are all available to ensure use of your scent as often as possible.
Global Support and Unity Through Aromatherapy
When making our products and your custom blends we choose from over 300+ essential oils, hydrosols, absolutes, enfleurages, infusions, tinctures, and CO2 extracts. Most of these extracts are from another country where the plant is indigenous. A farmer there carefully cultivates the aromatic herb, and at its most aromatic potency it is harvested and processed accordingly. That medicine is then used around the globe for its healing properties. Where the plants are grown is very important to the chemical components of the extract. This means that Aromatherapy inherently supports and has the capability to provide great jobs with a steady income to people all over the world. That medicine is then utilized globally, healing the people it touches. It is a cycle we are so grateful and humbled to be a part of. We will be sharing many of the stories and the journey of many of our oils in our blog as well as in our product descriptions on this site. Using extracts from from your countries of origin are a fantastic way to ground you in your roots. Or how about scents from your favorite places or places you would like to visit, these can remind you of your aspirations. Now you know it is helping real people, often in third world countries, have a better quality of life.
