peace, everyone. my name is florea shelby.
this is a space where i offer remembrance through tools of clarity and creations both intuitive and herbal in essence.
hailing from stolen kumeyaay land (san diego) and currently residing on piscataway land (washington d.c), i am finding many ways to be of service. i birthed creationsbyflorea in the fall of 2017, beginning in my dorm room making small batches of serums.
since then it has expanded beyond the natural skincare realm; i offer ritual oils and smoke blends, irregular e-newsletters, personal reflections and ethnographies of decolonized plant medicinal practices. my practices center the experiences of colonized people and the ways that they resist oppression through magic and medicine.
as i continue experiencing my potential, i hope to be of service to the people; community, togetherness and relationships are the most important aspects of this human experience. i am committed to the integrity of my products, and upholding the integrity of plant medicine itself. read more about my commitments and intentions here.
if you are in the d.c area and would like to collaborate, please do not hesitate to reach out. i also hope to collaborate with Black, brown and Indigenous people across the globe in order to usher in a wave of remembrance, activism and transformation.
