The Founder


 

Our founder, Ally Sands has aways had an affinity for plants. From her younger years of exploring the deserts of California to tagging along with her parents to plant nurseries all over San Diego, she was always drawn to plants. Ally and her small team gather plants from all over Southern California being intensely inspired by the deserts and mountains surrounding our studio. They spend their weekends driving through the empty desert highways picking creosote in the gusty winds of the coachella valley, or high up in the mountains with the rain and fog perched in a piñon pine gathering its needles.

Ally began working with crystals over 10 years ago. She suffered from anxiety and migraine headaches throughout her early 20s and came up with crystal infused remedies that helped her through. After having extreme success she began crafting a line of crystal infused products that combined both healing powers of herbs + crystals. Today she finds the best crystals by going to Tucson gem show as well as rock hounding all around California to dig up quartz, black tourmaline, and a variety of rocks native to the area.  

 Ally received her herbalist and aromatherapy certification in Encinitas, CA and continues to study in Rosemary Gladstar’s herbal courses. She is a certified Master Herbalist, Aromatherapist, Reiki healer and holds a BA in psychology.
