I have been blessed to have spent the past 14 years as an aesthetician, caring for many different clients through the gift of touch and assisting them in supporting their skin's health through gentle, non-invasive techniques that nourish and encourage beautiful skin.
My foundational training is in the European style of skin care. Along the journey, I have fused folk herbalism, aromatherapy and energetic touch, as well as other modalities, into my treatments to create a holistic approach.
Aside from being trained and licensed as an aesthetician in the state of Michigan, I have also received additional experience, training and certification from:
- Jim Mcdonald's Four Season Herbal Intensive
- Aromatic Studies, including Applications for the Skin and Botanical Body Care through the The School for Aromatic Studies run by Jade Shutes
- Institute of Integrative Oncology Skin Care & Facial Treatments Certification
- Reiki I/II Certification with William Lee Rand at the International Center for Reiki Training
- As well as many other professional trainings and certifications
My goal for my studio is to offer you botanically-based treatments that not only work to support the natural rhythms and beauty of your skin, but to also allow for deep relaxation to renew mind, body and soul through different experiences. A self-care escape where you can rejuvenate with a hands-on treatment, artisan body care, a workshop to learn something new or a creative gathering to fuel your passionate and creative spirit.
Finding balance in our busy lives is important. Let my studio be where you find that balance and solace.
::ABOUT AUTUMN MOON AESTHETICS::
Autumn Moon was born as a custom lip color studio in 2003, creating unique lip colors for brides, dancers and makeup artists. It was, at first, a side business to my aesthetics career. Eventually, the two paths fused into one and Autumn Moon became what it is today - a holistic source for natural, gentle botanical skin care services that support and nourish your skin, as well as a selection of curated, natural body care products and classes and workshops to promote creativity and wellness in your life.
::THE AUTUMN MOON AESTHETICS SKIN CARE STUDIO::
The Autumn Moon Skin Care Studio is located in downtown Lake Orion, just steps from everything our community has to offer - shopping, restaurants, yoga and more.
My services focus on holistic skin care treatments, that nourish not only your skin, but your mind, body and spirit.
::INTENSIVE SKIN CARE CONSULTS::
Work with a seasoned skin care therapist, specifically trained in herbal and aromatic skin care, to learn how to take care of your skin, naturally. One-on-one consultations include a thorough review of your lifestyle - diet, rest, spirituality, current skin care products, etc. - to determine the best ingredients and preparations to give you your best skin. If desired, customized skin care products can be created to assist you in reaching your skin care goals.
::THE AUTUMN MOON STUDIO BOUTIQUE::
The Autumn Moon Studio Boutique, located within the studio, offers natural body care and cosmetic items to create a luxurious skin care experience at home.
In addition to our handcrafted Autumn Moon cosmetics and other unique items, we also feature fresh, organic superfood products from THE BODY DELI - handcrafted, small-batch skin care from California's Coachella Valley. These products are used in Autumn Moon facials, and are also available to continue your healthy skin care routine at home.
::THE AUTUMN MOON ETSY SHOP::
The Autumn Moon Aesthetics etsy shop offers artisan apothecary skin and body care crafted from the finest ingredients, including botanicals from our family farm and those wildcrafted from the fields and forests of Michigan. Inspired by bygone eras, I take you back to times, fragrances and formulations that your soul remembers - through the vehicles of scent, sight, touch and taste.
Each item is handcrafted with energetic care and intent, to veil your skin and body in luxurious self-care and vintage glamour, transcending skin care to make the experience of caring for yourself a sacred one - a treasured, relaxing affair.
Items in the Autumn Moon Etsy Shop change with inspiration and the essence and rhythms of the seasons - yet always delight the senses and add beauty to your world. I personally create all of the products in the boutique and they are never tested on animals - just people. Ingredients are sourced from ethical and sustainable companies with quality being forefront. Autumn Moon products do not contain undesirable ingredients, such as pthalates, sulfates, artificial colors, scents or parabens. I also strive to use packaging that can be reused or repurposed many times, to lighten the load on our planet.
::NATURAL BODY CARE & creative WORKSHOPS::
As part of my holistic approach, I offer local workshops on natural skin and body care to teach you to support the health and radiance of skin of all ages, as well as regular creative gatherings to feed your creative soul.
