These are my personal musings on beauty alchemy, life, love, and what constitutes beauty. I find inspiration in the rhythm of nature, dance, movement, scent, the written word. I am moved by passionate, luminous beings.
Growing up in Denmark with a fair complexion and a family who suffered from eczema, psoriasis, and general allergic skin. I decided early on that I was not going to live my life relying on steroid creams to keep my sensitive skin at bay so I began to experiment with plant oils and botanical essences. When I became an esthetician years later, I began incorporating essential oils into my facial treatments to treat imbalances in my client’s skin. After months of testing and fine-tuning specific formulations for different skin conditions, Gunilla Skin Alchemy was born. An alternative to commercial skincare creams and a delicate balancing act between plant science and alchemy for the skin.
