Flora Alchemy's Profile

About

Flora is a proud sponsor of the Etsy Out of the Box Sampler.

My real name is Joan E.. I was born a cross-eyed Libra and raised in the Mojave desert. Sun worship through out the formative years, member of the Tropical Tan Oil troupe. I learned to sew and master other domestic crafts during that time. Of Scandinavian descent, blue eyes, fair skin turns to leather after years of desert sun.
Began exploring plant based healing in 1984, June to be exact. Plant-based healing is an energetic system, as we are energetic beings.
Started exploring natural skin products in 2005 and made my first skin cream using Galen's recipe.

I started this adventure because I was tired of being poisoned with neurotoxins every time I applied nail polish or make-up, took a shower or washed my hair with a shampoo with a beautiful synthetic fragrance. Skin care can be natural, without neurotoxins. Women can be beautiful and smart.
The other reason I began to play with skin care products is I have incredibly dry skin. No water based lotion could make my skin moist. So, I decided I had to make my own. The story of Flora Alchemy starts here.
I obtained a BS in Nursing from California State University, Chico in 2005. I have a part-time day job as a Public Health Nurse in a community clinic.
I conceived 2 girl children now grown and gorgeous. I will be a grandmother in August, 2012.
I'm a southern California transplant with a LA sense of humor. I love Mother Nature and everything about her. I find inspiration in beauty and nature. I am an Animist, the world is alive and aware to me. I love animals. I have pets and chickens.
I live in Northern California and can see Mount Shasta from my house. The closest city is Redding, CA. and the Oregon border is 3 hours north.

My talents are music, kitchen medicine, aromatherapy, color, have artist eye, silversmith, gardener, herbalist (not necessarily in any order).
My favorite styles are tribal hippie, boho, southwestern old pawn, art nouveou, art deco.
My favorite house style is Arts and Crafts. My favorite interior style is early attic.

I have another Etsy shop that I am moving all the Vintage sterling jewelry to. I also offer gemstones, cabochons, and findings. Please visit me there at Etsy.com/shop/JoanE'sGems.

Thank you for looking.
