The products contain herbs that have been used for centuries to soothe and rejuvenate the skin. Essential oils that are researched for quality and purity are also used in many of the products.

Monsters came to be at a time of personal pain and crisis when I needed to find my own inner strength and fierceness. I make them to share and to encourage fierceness. And to celebrate the strength required to be our best selves.
