Skin care & unique aromas inspired & handcrafted from Nature

About Me

I started Akima Botanicals in March 2012.  While working as a licensed esthetician, makeup & lash artist, I created beautiful perfumes and natural skin care as gifts for friends & family. The overwhelmingly positive feedback I received led me to take the next step, and Akima Botanicals was born.  I handcraft everything from product to label, and run every aspect of my business myself. 

Since my new business was so close to my passions in work & life in general, I decided on an equally personal business name for my Brand. Akima was my stage name in my former life as a professional belly dancer. I began selling direct to customers in various farmers markets, festivals, & retail locations.

In my skin & body care products I use only eco-friendly, natural, cruelty free, responsibly wild-harvested botanicals and ingredients.  They never contain parabens, phthalates, artificial colors, fragrances or preservatives.  When fragrance oils are used (Akima Aromas only), I carefully select only the most premium quality oils tested for purity and safety.  Green manufacturing and mindful operations are always practiced.    All containers are recyclable and all products & ingredients are eco-friendly and cruelty free.
