In Ava Zahn’s quest to create Earthwise Beauty, she discovered a fascination and connection to flower and gem essences which led her to expand her repertoire and create Pacific Northwest Essences. She wanted to take this new-found education and combine it with previous knowledge to create a range that heals the psyche of men, women, and children so they can achieve confidence, inner calm, self-acceptance of their physical selves, and a stronger connection to their inner wisdom through flower + gem essences and aura mists.
She prepares each flower, gem, moss, and essence by hand following the Bach tradition and harnessing solar energy. Ava has studied intensively with a number of top experts in herbal medicine and dedicated much of her time to continue her education and approach with herbal, floral, and gem essences to ensure the purest results without harming the integrity of the ingredients. She creates when the flowers and gems are calling, and infuses them in a natural environment, usually in the Ponderosa pine forest.
