What to Expect
Whenever people come to my booth they are always drawn in by the scents of candles, oils and soaps. They may see the jewelry sparkling in the light or they may just feel drawn. A lot of times when people are at events and they feel they need to recollect themselves or just find a neutral zone, they wander to my table and find something unexpected. An encounter that is tangible and will help them remember the event.
Through my journeys in life, i sought to find out the mysteries of the world and the higher realms. Through a deep connection of love of the earth, I found myself going back to the ways of the ancestors and listening to the stones, and flowers and the sunset. In a way, it was there, through finding my spirituality, that Black Star Henna & Apothecary was born.
AS a lover of tattoos, I have always been intrigued by body art. A friend at a festival once shared the gift of receiving henna, and as I saw the beautiful design on my hand, I knew I wanted to also be a part of this lasting but temporary art form. Through trial and error, practice and coaching, I have created a unique henna experience. Every client's henna design is unique and individual. Each time we sit and talk we connect in a world that is dominated by social media and flickering screens.
I have a passion for bath and beauty products, and accessories. Connecting them to spiritual and holistic came naturally with my background in spirituality and indigenous healing practices. I've always made my own body scrubs, and candles. A friend asked me if I sold my product I made, and it got my gears churning. I added the apothecary to my store to give my henna clients a more spa-like feel. THey get to take away natural bath and body products that work and are of the earth.
However, this would not have been possible had I not been humbly making beaded bracelets and reading tarot for various events. Charm bracelets have been apart of multiple cultures for so long. They can be given for luck or love. Some believe they protect the wearer from evil. Others just find the crystals to be beautiful. Tarot has mystified people for centuries. IS it guided by the stars or some unseen energy, or is it merely a coincidence lined up in symbolism and psychology? Either way, it's a fun thing for those who want to see if there really are messages from the other side.
This store is to start a self-love revolution and provide the tools for your self-care ritual. The bathroom is a temple and can be a holy place where you, your higher self and the Divine connect.
Each piece contains reiki, my heart and being. Each bracelet has a personal connection and story. Each painting has a personal emotion and history Each necklace has a specific intent and belief.
