I started my first herbal skin care line in the mid 1980’s while my husband and I resided on Martha’s Vineyard. After purchasing dozens of jars of Comfrey Salve, I decided to try making my own. While I was looking for ingredients at the local herb shop, the owner mentioned that if I had any extra salves she would sell them. As they say, the rest is history… or her~story! From there, Island’s Own herbal skin care products was founded.
Co~Creating with Gaia and all of her wisdom, resources, and love, along with a supportive community and customer base, Island’s Own flourished for 15 years. In 2010, my husband Tom, two dogs, Myles and Mojo, and I set out for the West Coast after selling the business, our home, and most of our possessions. From there we explored, played, and made new friends. All the while, crafting skin care products was never far from my thoughts as I came to know native plants and herbs in other parts of the states.
In the late 1980’s, around the time of the Harmonic Convergence, our spiritual awakening began. We danced through Reiki, Shamballa Multidimensional Healing, and many other self-healing modalities. In 2012 I began a year-long study program with Meg Blackburn Losey, called Touching the Light . It is a transformational multidimensional healing modality. The symbol in the middle of the logo’s sun is from Meg’s Living Light cards (see sessions for more information).
Simple Joy Herbals is my newest endeavor with herbal skin care, and I now offer transformational sessions into personal mastery. I am blessed to be able to follow my passions, providing honest, caring, loving support, whether in a session or in an herbal product. May you follow your passions as well!
