The months that followed included countless experimental surgeries, over 50 hours under anesthesia, a series of blood transfusions, fighting infection, rehabilitation, and a blood clot that nearly cost her arm. During this pivotal transition, one of the most alarming realities that surfaced was her detoxification process. Her doctors had advised it would take YEARS to remove all traces of anesthesia and opioids from her cellular memory. WHAT??? At the time she thought surviving this would be the difficult part. Keeping a pulse. It was only the beginning.
“For me facing mortality wasn’t only about discovering my will to live and to be of service. What came to light was this powerful emphasis to continuously enhance the QUALITY of my life on all levels. Health and wellness moved to the forefront. My old identity had transformed on that cliff, and the tree that pierced and mangled my arm was the same force that securely suspended the vehicle I was trapped within, ironically my greatest gift!”
Professionally, as an artist and visionary, Elyse began her career with a relentless drive to positively transform the lives she touched aesthetically as a cosmetologist. Her unexpectedly profound interactions always left her with a powerful and uplifting energetic vibration. Jolting her belief system that the true measure of her success was in fact un-measurable! While in her chair, together, her client’s individual beauty discovery morphed into a nurturing development of self-love and acceptance. “These moments were in fact the primal stages and driving force in the birth of her artisan brand, Elyse Marie Botanicals. Her vision began to resonate when she realized that aside from the toxic chemical based environment, the area that was most lacking throughout her service experiences…QUALTIY AFFORDABLE PRODUCTS. “There was this gap that NEEDED to be filled in order to exceed my client’s expectations and completely harmonize their full experience. At that time, I was working with some of the top brands in the industry so there was an ever-present frustration. Product after product seemed to only provide this false sense of health and I held myself fully responsible and committed to find a solution. I had to do something”. From my life experiences, outside the spectrum, incorporating lasting results through nature was an effortless and organic progression.
She met her husband and they had instantaneous chemistry and an equal desire to do meaningful things with their lives. From that moment on with Rodrigo by her side they built an empire of love in gratitude to the family they created and the impressions they visualized leaving in their memory. Their goal is always to intertwine their individual strengths, while revolutionizing natural skin and hair-care with 100% natural active chemistry. They are consistently evolving and adapting themselves within the industry from every angle.
“This brand is a combination of the imprints and passions of our lives! I grew up amongst the forest with parents both in environmental and integrative medical fields. Rodrigo was raised in Italy with strong heritage surrounded by a minimalistic approach that focuses on quality of life, which shaped his entire belief system. He finished business school as an organized leader and embarked on a decade long entrepreneurial venture in Renewable Energy.
Elyse Marie Botanicals is a small batch artisanal brand, produced within their studio, by them. There is nothing more intimate than the security that the founders are always taking part in every step of the curation process.
The rest is history!”
