Blue Moon Herbals began as a means of taking control of my own health. I was first diagnosed with cancer in 1988, a time when "breast cancer" was not discussed as openly as it is today. Information on cancer and available options (both alternative and conventional) were not easy to find. Being unprepared and uninformed, I finally followed my doctors down the "yellow brick road" of conventional treatment. I am still amazed when I think of that time in my life, especially concerning the drugs; some corrosive enough to require skin grafts if dripped on the skin! In the early 90s, I vowed to take an active part in enhancing my immune system. With knowledge and a strong healthy body, I have faced my last two reoccurrences with success.
Working with meditation, massage, nutrition, reflexology and crystals, I nourished my body and fed my soul. I always had a love for aroma and wore scented oils from the time I was a teenager, Patchouli being my favorite. The choice became clear- to become a student of this ancient science.
Inevitably the frustration with products more confusing than effective, led me to research and study the various effects of essential oils, herbs, & essences, ultimately their connection on a vibrational level with the mineral world. I began blending my own oils and created a line of products blended with organic essential oils and botanicals, imbued resins, flower and gem essences and crystals. Alchemy at work? Without a doubt, but also embracing the aesthetics of organic perfumery- potions that evolve, enhance and enfold the very soul of the wearer- perfumes with a purpose.
Blue Moon continues today as a woman owned green business, solidly standing by the belief that we are caretakers of the earth. I receive all the gifts of nature with gratitude and continually strive to improve our offerings, combining aroma-therapeutic knowledge with a background in women's studies and developed in the magickal, botanical and Wise Woman traditions. It was a period of transformation, doing something I love. Today, I am known locally as the “potion queen" and through Blue Moon Herbals, I am committed to helping you enhance your physical, emotional & spiritual well being through the use of pure therapeutic oils, herbs, flowers & crystals.
May you enjoy these potions as much as I.
