Hi busy bees,

All of my products are handcrafted in small batches using natural, organic or wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. Local supplier’s are also used when available.

My goals are... To continue to grow as an Herbalist while handcrafting products that serve a purpose for your body and in your life. My vision for the near future, is to provide affordable clinical herbal consultations to individuals.

Let's get started! Meet Unique: 

My name is Unique and I am an Herbalist and founder of Naturally Devine Herbal Apothecary. I handcraft herbal wellness and whole body care products. I am also in the process of completing my studies in clinical herbalism.

I was born and raised in New york City until my teenage years. I graduated high school here in Richmond, Virginia and have been here ever since. I am a single mom of 4 and they keep me quite busy.

It’s hard to juggle it all but I do everything for my children to show them that existing and living are two different things.
Hollistic Living

Tell us about your amazing business! 

My business was founded in 2016; I felt as if it was the right time to share my love of herbalism with the community. After enrolling in school to study herbalism, I became very passionate with living a more holistic and natural life for myself and family. I knew that sharing my herbal wellness offerings with others was the right thing to do.

Describe some of your responsibilities as a boss babe and mom of four. 

My responsibility as a mom can be chaotic, and downright hard but I love my family to no limit. My home life is pretty much routine for my family and I. I have two girls and two boys, ages 2, 6, 8 & 13.

The day begins with me waking up and preparing the kids for the day ahead. We have one dinner night out per week (kids choice), which helps break up the monotony of our routine at home. I enjoy taking the children on walks in the local parks where they have fun and I get to look for herbal plants!

Being a small business owner is challenge as well, keeping up with social media, applying for the right events, finances, logistical aspects...etc.

What keeps you motivated?

My commitment to my family keeps me motivated to push through whenever I am feeling weary or defeated in being an entrepreneur. Also being an herbalist and knowing what I can attribute to people that seek alternative wellness, is very humbling.

What are your favorite tools to stay productive and organized?

I use an app called Todoist which allows me to schedule all of my task and check off as I complete them. I do this every night before bed. I can become easily distracted at times so scheduling everything is very beneficial for me. All of my appointments and events are scheduled in Google Calendar.

Any advice for other female entrepreneur's that might be reading this blog? 

Not everyone has found their purpose in life and some never do.

It can be hard to find yourself in all the daily hustle and just existing. Take time during those quiet moments, the times when you’re between jobs, when you’re at a breaking point from the job you dislike.

Think about what you’re passionate about.

Ask yourself: what can I attribute to the world that will make me happy and fulfill my soul?
