It’s no secret I am quite fond and currently propagating this wonderful plant 🍁 and has been a staple in my medicine and beauty apothecary garden.
I am starting the initial phase of my product and development for Almonds Apothecary! It has truly quite been a few years in the making and I am still in shock that I’ll be rolling this out this presently!
I am curating a beauty and wellness line first launching in my airbnbs on the big island of Hawaii, catering to my local and international guests.
Sustainability has been a top priority when building this project and sourcing out post consumer materials and ethically sourced ingredients has been indeed a joyful journey. Will share more in the next posts!
Here I have invested in Doterra essentials oils, a must have and convenient reach for my most desired and used blends especially when I am traveling and on the go. I have teamed up with a gang of goddesses and have been creating these unique blends via inspiration and intuition. The first few products will be an indulgence for the senses, decadent and drama free intoxicating body washes, end of the day scrubs and take the time to just be and lather up lotions and mists.
Yes, you read that right! I have partnered with Vital Proteins a sustainably-sourced nutrition product company, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. We do that by providing nourishing collagen and promoting our production of collagen – an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.
I stumbled upon my first product from the collagen based brand at my beauty studio in Waikiki, pressed for time and needing an immediate caffeine intake, I was quickly introduced by a colleague to this new brand we started carrying.
The Original Matcha Collagen flavor which is sourced from high-quality Japanese matcha green tea and grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide to ensure top quality and maximum nutritional benefit.
Bioavailable: Collagen is easily digested and absorbed by the body.
Rich in Antioxidants: Matcha contains 137 times the amount of antioxidants as other green teas.
Beneficial: Helps to improve hair, skin, nails and joints, ligaments, tendons.
Easy to Use: No complicated preparation required! Simply dissolve into an 8 oz. glass of cold or hot water.
The coffee alternative, loaded with caffeine and a seal of approval being vegan and clean? I was intrigued and more than a willing participant to the magic. *I also initially thought, with green tea as a featured ingredient, I feel healthier in this journey already.
My first attempt to just try the new elixir, mixed hot water, the taste comes up as a surprising milky and a slight hint of sweetness. I had previously envisioned to be a more bland or bitter combination but was really impressed. I am definitely adding a few more components to it like macadamia milk and dark chocolate powder because this is what the taste preferences command these days.
I invite you along this wealth in wellbeing journey with me. If you follow me on the gram, you know how dedicated I’ve been.
Week into whatever quarantine month it is, I have been keeping my end of the bargain in tact. Be grateful to start the day then go out there and be great!
Keeping my personal development at top priority, in all ways starting with the physical and it has translated many times over in all the other realms. By no means have I peaked or the end of this journey, but simply celebrating what is and living in the present.
I have much to do but I’m going to take a few hours to legit, quarantine and chill.
I apologize in many weeks and now months in advance if I haven’t returned any correspondences, I have simply been minding my own business and taking some time for me.
This growing season, Ive incorporated a new addition to the apothecary.
A friend of mine in Palo Alto fondly spoke about her greens and avidly sends me her recipes and just fresh outta the kitchen photos of her brunches and dinners utilizing a fast and flavorful array of micro greens.
Upon further research, the term implies a small sprout. So basically, take any seeds you have and grow the yummy edibles from 1-3 inches, harvest and enjoy before the second set of leaves develop, but if it does, enjoy your new baby plant you’ve just germinated from seed! 🤩
In this current mix I have:
a mix of basis
umami asian blend: mustards, cabbages, bakchoi, pakchoi,
a wild mix: bulls blood beet, cabbages, kohlrabi, swiss chards
It takes just a few short days starting from seed to sprout, but once you get it going, a very useful and unique harvest to add to your self sustaining round of spices and herbs.
