My inspiration for June Botanicals came from the desire to bring health and ritual into everyday life. About a decade ago, I made a commitment to myself to bring a spiritual practice into my daily life. This not only embodied taking care of myself through better diet and lifestyle choices but also...and even more so, this commitment was about taking better care of my spirit and mind.
June Botanicals was created with the deep desire to offer skincare that has the power to feed the body AND the heart. I believe, a healthy body, mind and spirit will move you gracefully through this life. It will give you time to let go for a moment & enjoy the details. I see skincare as a source of nutrition. I also see skincare as a perfect opportunity everyday to quiet the mind, ground your body, and bring loving kindness to yourself.
Every time someone uses one of my products I want them to feel better about themselves
THIS IS THE PRACTICE OF LOVE
For most of my life I have been intrigued by a couple of things: how things work & the sheer elegant beauty of plants. When I was a teenager I remember finding a book of my mothers called "the Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs". And from then on my interest took root. My path has always been unexpected, non-linear, and unconventional, and my studies have always paralleled that path. I have lead a life learning about art, organic farming, cooking, holistic health and herbalism.
About three years ago my grandmother, June past away. She had a gentle soul and was a strong, practical, understated woman who lead a very modest life. Somehow, in her life of simplicity, she managed to save some money to give to each of her three grandchildren. A gesture that was very heart-opening and unexpected to all of us. I decided to start June Botanicals with her gift.
Not far after I started this endeavor, I found out that, coming from a long line of Swiss ancestry, my grandmothers' great grandmother was an herbalist in a small village in the Swiss Alps. When I heard this I almost cried. We are all interconnected and to feel connected to a line of women and ancient past down tradition feels so special and true.
With my grandmothers in my heart I offer modern herbal medicine to heal and support.
