 1. If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 (beauty & wellness) products could you not live without?  (You have food and water)
This is a hard question but I’m going with the practical so witchhazel extract, SPF and raw cacao. Yep, cacao is totally practical! you can eat it, sip it, and put it on your body ;)
2. What’s your favorite part about running Curandera Remedies?
Meeting the amazing customers who love and enjoy the products.
 3. Of the products you make, which is your favorite?
It’s a tie! I love the Majmua Aromatherapy Oil for everyday and the Señorita Moon Cycle Oil when needed.

4. What sets Curandera Remedies apart from other lines on the market today?

All the products are made with the pure intention of healing. I make the products in a meditative state and infuse them all with an F sharp tone. It’s beauty that makes your heart sing when you use it and it’s imbued with positive energy.
5. We all know healthy beauty starts with what we put in our bodies.  What 3 tips can you share about beauty from the inside out? (think superfoods, supplements, teas, elixirs and the like)
This is my favorite topic and why I became a Health Coach. I love to share what makes us glow from the inside! Water is number one, but please make sure to add your minerals. I use Concen Trace Mineral Drops, a few drops in water daily is easy and fast. Adding Ashawagandha, an adaptogen, to your diet will boost your immune system daily. Last but super important, eat your good fats. As women, fats are what helps regulate our hormone levels and keep our skin subtle. I only use high quality Olive oil and Ghee, clarified butter, in the kitchen. (Organic of course.)
6. What do you do to stay active and why?
Meditation keeps my mind active and focused. Yogasana keeps my body alive!

7. Not including your own brand, what are 3 of your must have beauty /wellness products?
Bedstuy Botanicals Hand Sanitizer, RMS Living Luminizer, and Forrest Ayurveda Light Lotion with Jasmine & Mogra

8. Do you have a hero?  If so, who and why?
My mom is my hero. She lives her life with intention, humility, and compassion.

9. What’s the hardest or most important life lesson you’ve learned?
Life is designed to flow and teach us karma lessons. So it’s good to keep your plans fluid and your focus on the big picture of your life.
