you may call me shelby, florea, or Love itself.
this is a space where i offer remembrance, tools of clarity, and creations both intuitive and herbal in essence.
hailing from san diego and currently residing in washington d.c, my studies center the experiences of womxn of color through the lens of intuitive channeling, herbalism, and transformative social change. i am especially interested in the relationship between plants, healing and decolonization!
i am receiving my bachelor’s degree, from the american university in d.c, with a dual focus in women’s, gender and sexuality studies and anthropology.
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 several e-books for teaching, remembering and healing, as well as a newsletter subscription for regular energetic reflections.
as i continue experiencing myself and my potential in this life, 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.
