NATURE HAS ALL THE ANSWERS TO OUR QUESTIONS
WHEN IT COMES TO A HOLISTIC LIFESTYLE.
WE JUST HAVE TO LISTEN.
I´m a RN and medical aesthetician from Germany. During my work I was always searching for the ´perfect´ skin care product. Traveling South Africa in 2013, I got in contact with African oils and realized they provide everything a perfect skincare product needs. Back in Miami, I started to create my own oil blends and a year later in December 2014 the first products where manufactured. The beginning of ELEWA. The beginning of a very exiting journey.
But ELEWA is not only about skin care products. It´s a concept. Nature – body -mind – spirit in balance. I realized that Nature has all the answers to our questions, we just have to listen.
I enrolled in courses at Yogananda Institute in California to become a holistic health practitioner and earned a Bachelor degree in spiritual healing in 2015. I´m very thankful for everything I learned. It changed my life forever.
