JTG #75 Mud Packing, Detox From Unwanted Toxic Chemicals & Botanical Skincare With Kate Poole 

JTG #75 Mud Packing, Detox From Unwanted Toxic Chemicals & Botanical Skincare With Kate Poole

*Special announcement about the podcast*

Hi, I’m Caroline Dalia Kaliani, Functional Nutrition Practitioner, Herbal Medicine Mama & formulator of a botanical skincare line for rosacea.

A few years ago, I launched this free educational platform called Journey to Glow.

The goal? To explore natural, holistic and effective solutions for skin “issues”.

In my quest to share the effectiveness of natural medicine, I interviewed over 75+ holistic skin experts (Functional Medicine Practitioners, Naturopathic NDs, Holistic Nutritionists, Integrative Dermatologists, and Ayurvedic doctors…) as well as dozens of womxn who fully healed rosacea.

The Journey To Glow podcast reached over 100,000 listeners and received hundreds of 5 stars reviews in 30 different countries. But the best part? Were the weekly emails from listeners and readers who shared they have regained hope that they could heal their skin!

Mission accomplished!

After years of making the episodes available for free on mainstream podcast platforms, we are now rethinking how we want this information to be accessed.

If you’d like to be notified of the next steps, sign up for the Glowletter at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for listening and for being on the journey with us!

JTG #75 Mud Packing, Detox From Unwanted Toxic Chemicals & Botanical Skincare With Kate Poole 

Kate Poole is the founder of Essential Apothecary Alchemist, a bestselling farm-to-bottle skincare brand, as well as HunterMoon Homestead, the 1902 farm that she is restoring and growing organic botanicals for Essential Apothecary Alchemist, and hosting self-discovery art and personal growth retreats. She has a background in plant studies, nutritional counseling, and wellness assessment that bring a unique vision to her alchemical process.

“The focus of my products is essential oils that have an affinity for the skin and make tiny molecular changes that are powerful over time,” says Poole, whose passion for plants dates back to childhood. “They smell incredible, so you are treating your skin at the same time as you are treating your mind and spirit because they affect the brain through the limbic system.”

Inspired by the transformative powers of plant medicines, and the ability of natural materials to assist the body’s innate intelligence to find balance and wholeness. Through her EAA products, Kate sought to bring the same level of nutrition and focus on organic ingredients in her diet, into her skincare routine. When she couldn’t find anything in the market, she decided to make it for herself.

“I have been an herbalist literally all my life. I was picking fresh herbs when I was just a child and somehow I knew how to use them. By the time I was in high school, I was studying in earnest. I raised my family on herbal medicines and avoided the whole western medicine model. I learned how to garden from a great aunt, who used organic farming methods: using a broad fork, composting, crop rotations, plant companion planting, moon calendar… Growing, harvesting, drying, or tincturing fresh herbs, for their medicinal uses has been a lifelong occupation.” Kate’s current passion is distilling plant materials to utilize both the water and essential oil products of plants.

“Having a human body is not easy! We all have our own challenges to overcome. It is easy to be self-critical and judge ourselves harshly. Why is it so easy to see the beauty in others over ourselves? I practice living by my motto, Be your beauty, let your one of a kind shine!”
