MOON Minerals is a long time dream of our mother earth + the vast universe that has come into life through the hands of me, Kristen Luna. As a mother of two amazing boys, I have been exploring more natural + holistic ways of living since my first son Dominic was born back in the year 2000. Watching life grow right in front of me each day opened my eyes to how precious and vulnerable our bodies minds, + spirits really are. Cleansing with harsh chemicals or ingesting medicines with so many side effects never felt like the right way we should be treating our children, ourselves, or our planet.
In December of 2015 as a handmade holiday project, I began playing with the lovely scents of essential oils to make up all kinds of different apothecary items. The whole experience was so refreshing + uplifting that I decided a serious new path was to be taken in the course of my life. I was half way through my second pregnancy with my other son Phoenix then...the timing seemed just right to change directions. Another new life was about to enter our world.
As I experimented + crafted more products, I began to ask a lot of questions about the herbs, flowers, + plants that I was working with, like where were they grown? Or, what were all of their healing qualities? Although I could easily research this on my own, I felt called to connect with the plants directly and enrolled in a sacred plant apprenticeship with The Gaia School of Healing in Malibu, CA the following year. This awe inspiring + transformational school is exactly what I had been looking for to re-connect with the ancient art of herbalism that our modern culture has forgotten.
The herbalists journey is a lifelong experience. Each day that goes by, I am learning more and more about so many beautiful plants, their spirits, and their medicine. As I continue to grow with the plants, I will share in gratitude with all of you. Thank you so much for coming along on this beautiful, healing, + blissful journey with me.
