“There's something gratifying and humbling about being able to send my love
and blessings into the world through my creations”
My background stems from learning wild crafting of plants and practicing plant spirit medicine as a teenager. I've always loved music and taught myself to read music by the age of 8 – playing piano and French horn and went on to earn a degree in music composition from Cornish College of the Arts. I later became a licensed massage therapist and reflexologist. Composition figures into every aspect of my life – now I compose beautiful, nutritious skincare products for my company, OHA Skincare. It’s as if the sound and compositions in my head are now expressed through the scent and textures of my formulas.
I have two awesome grown kids, Drea and Ryan who enrich my life every day. They light and warm my heart.
I love loving my life. The everyday things. The feel of my bed sheets and savoring delicious coffee in the morning. Trying to notice how nature touches every aspect of our daily lives. I love being able to be a part of a creative process that incorporates nature to do something helpful that impacts people every day. Not showy – but subtle. Something that requires my time and attention. There's something gratifying and humbling about being able to send my love and blessings into the world through my creations. Something that touches people’s senses and hopefully will uplift them for even a couple of seconds.
"I love being able to see my creativity flourish and become something tangible and shared."
I love finding hard-to-find things. I love working and creating with unusual and high quality raw materials, essential oils that will be pleasing to the senses, therapeutic for the body, mind and spirit.
I love being able to see my creativity flourish and become something tangible and shared.
To recreate a texture, a smell, to discover the unique in common everyday things.
Martha’s Core Values + Philosophy On Happiness
Honesty, integrity, gentleness, seeing the good in others, not being so judgmental, reliable, responsible, surrendering to a higher power, forgiving, and loyal.
Happiness I believe is an emotional response when we experience pleasure. Focusing on the senses and developing them is a way I have found to live in happiness. The simpler the better. Afternoon sun on your back, conscious breathing, stretching, eating or drinking something you find delicious, taking a 5 minute daydream break imagining the most wonderful moment, feeling gratitude every day, washing your face, smelling essential oils, laughing, purring kitties…
