I'm a Medical Herbalist who makes organic plant-based creams & skincare for my company Vervain.

After working in film and fashion for 17 years I decided it was time to re-invent myself, follow my true passion and become a Medical Herbalist.

I began making organic all-natural skincare for myself as I wasn't able to find what I was looking for in the current market. Soon word spread and my friends and family, then actors and makeup artists began buying my products. Over the years I have been adding and revising to provide a quality well-considered line of skincare products and called them Vervain. Vervain is a wonderful herb used for many many years for relieving stress, aphrodisiac, to stimulate mental clarity and was at one point even used to ward off vampires.

My process goes something like this. I decide on the next product I'm going to create. I consider each ingredient that goes into the formula as each material brings a health or therapeutic benefit. No ingredient is added to be filler.
Next I source the best quality, local when possible, ingredients and raw materials. Through trial & error I work out any issues until I'm satisfied with a quality product. I then resource packaging and have the label designed and printed.

My passion for plants and working with organic natural ingredients comes through in my work. I am truly blessed to do what I do.
