I suffered from breakouts whenever I used commercial soaps, and over time I just learned how to deal with them as best as I could. I stumbled across handmade soap at a local health store, which was a blessing in disguise. I was in AWE!!! I loved the way the soap looked, smelled, and how it felt on my skin helping to relieve my breakouts. With this newfound obsession, I began to dive deep into the process of soap making and the ingredients behind the soap. Quickly realized the use of ingredients in most commercial soaps was the reason for the breakouts. At the same time, my sister always informed me about environmental issues and it inspired me to learn more. I had an overwhelming gut feeling that "All Living Things (plants) Have Purpose." Indigenous people understood this concept. They lived off of the land and used plants to nourish their bodies and for medicinal, spiritual, and therapeutic uses as well. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to explore plant medicine and holistic wellness but I didn't have a clue where to start, so I began creating soap and selling it at local craft fairs and street festivals.
As of now, I work as a Nurse. I intend to go full force into herbalism & holistic health to expand my knowledge, even more, this January. My goal is to build a brand that captivates my knowledge and understanding of western and herbal medicine through its products while raising environmental awareness and inspiring you to be your advocate when it comes to your wellness.

I've always found myself interested in holistic medicine but never took the time out to learn about natural herbs. Nothing’s more natural, organic, and raw as what is here on earth to cure diseases and nourish our bodies. I remember one of my former professors back when I attended a community college. My old comrades knew that once you brought junk food into the class, you would get grilled on the nutrition facts label on the back of your product. At first, I found it very annoying, but now as I look back, I'm thankful to have had someone like her to embed thoughts to change my eating habits. Over the years, I started to learn about the importance of taking care of my body. I transitioned into veganism about a year ago, and this has been the best decision I've made for myself. The health benefits are plentiful, focusing primarily on fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains. Veganism is the sustainable option when it comes to looking after our planet, plant-based living is also a more sustainable way of feeding our families. With Beauty from the Root, we thrive on bringing you plant-based products and using recycled packaging because it's essential to both the natural environment and ourselves.
