Meet Your Herbalist

My Story

I began developing my first products as a young child, mixing and combining the soaps and perfumes I found in cupboards. 


As an adult I discovered that every ingredient had its own story: from where and how it was grown, to when it was harvested. These unique stories taught me that the source and quality of each ingredient is directly linked to my health, and my impact on the planet. This knowing defined my choices around what I could consciously put both in and on my body.


In 2010, with a passion for organic skin care, I made my first batch of topical products, signed up for my first herbal studies course and began my journey as a product formulator and herbalist. As my two professions evolved side by side over the next 6 years, my knowledge of whole plant medicine fused with my topical formulations in the resulting product line Poppy Botanicals.  


I am now a Certified Herbalist, instructor at The California School of Herbal Studies, contributing writer at the Herbal Academy, founder of the beauty brand Poppy Botanicals, and herbal product developer and consultant for cosmetic companies nationwide.

My Mission

I aim to educate and inspire others about the healing intelligence of plants. Using traditional herbal preparations, I produce beauty products that allow the skin and body to remember it's most natural state of health and beauty through  assimilating raw plant nutrients. 


I am devoted to a life defined by what I find growing in the soil and fueled by synthesizing these organic components into accessible healing potions for humans.
