Who is behind Shrines of 22s?

What is shrine of 22s and how did it come to be?
Shrine of 22s is a small batch handcrafted specialty shop for the bath, body, and soul. I️t started coming into fruition about 3 years ago, when I was talking to a former friend about my desire to share my knowledge of life’s mystics and nature with the world. I️t all started with my crystals, essential oils, and herbs, which I incorporate in my products and will be doing so on a larger scale in the very near future. I went on a 3 year research frenzy and the beginning of 2017 I started testing out recipes. I then started offering the products on a small scale at Atelier 22, the salon I own with my sister, which we have always talked about also making a boutique and we have! The reception I got from our clients and even our friends online that had not tried any of it yet, motivated me to take it one step further. On 11/11 I finally launched my website and I️ have been working nonstop since! The love shown has been so humbling.
What kind of products should we be expecting?
Soaps, Bath Wash, Milk Baths (because we all know Cleopatra was onto something), Body Oils, Body Butters, Lip Care, Beard Butters, Tattoo Butters, Crystals (current stock charged with the total eclipse of 8/21 amongst other full and new moons), Beads, Ritual Goodies and so much more! Not only have I incorporated my love for crystals, oils, and herbs, I have also been working on introducing “The Canvas Collection” making little canvas soaps for my art lovers!
Are you making any skin smoothing serum’s?
I have a VERY AMAZING LUXURIOUS Face Elixir coming soon! I️t is currently sitting in a glass jar in a dark cool place blending up. I have been using it for a few months and it has been absolutely amazing to me. I currently have a miracle oil on my site that works amazing for small areas and ailments.
What do you wish to achieve or provide with Shrine of 22s?
My grandmother always told me I️ was a natural leader, teacher, and healer. I hope to provide all three along with being able to use Shrine of 22s in my journey of becoming a humanitarian. A means to be able to provide the help I so desire.
What do your tub teas do?
The tub teas are basically a moisture pack of skin loving oats and botanicals. One Tea Bag dropped in the tub with you and you’re good to go! You throw away the bag once you’re done with it and no cleaning up flowers or anything out of your tub. Currently the only one up for sale is our Luxury Blend which combines Chamomile, Cornflower Petals, Calendula Flowers, Lavender, Rose Petals, Hibiscus and Orange Peel. I️t takes your bath to a whole other level. This Friday with the Black Friday sale I will be stocking our Work Out Blend consisting of Oats, Epsom Salt, Rosemary, Peppermint, Spearmint and Sage to soothe and relax after a rigorous day, and also our Winter Blend. Packed full of warming herbs like Spearmint, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Fennel, Juniper Berries, and Peppermint, for those chilly winter nights. Last but not least our Bedtime Blend with relaxing buds of Lavender, and Chamomile. BONUS after you let the tea bag seep for awhile, use it to rub it all over your skin, with or without body wash. Go ahead, run those tired muscles. You’re welcome.
Are your products friendly to sensitive skin?
Yes, not only that, shoot me an email if you like a product but you’re allergic to one of the ingredients, we will work on making a custom blend just for you! We offer unscented if preferred as well.
