Stephany's Story

Hello, if you haven't met me already, thank you for visiting my site. My name is Stephany Rodriguez-Medina from South Los Angeles, CA. I wish I could say I created Skin to Soul, but Skin to Soul created me. Early in 2018, it all happened to me; both personal and business growth, I found out I was struggling with a mental disorder, PMDD. After being hospitalized for mental health, it became one of the greatest challenges in my life. During my stay, I was recommended to take many medications to help my well-being, while some helped others only made me feel worse. Some medications caused my skin to become extremely sensitive. After doing research, I learned that a lot of the products that we put into our body contain chemicals that adversely affect our mental state and more so people who have mental disorders. I had already been practicing aromatherapy at home and thought to create natural products to enhance symptoms of well being that influence good emotion through self-care for myself, and then others.

Practicing self-care through natural products, and then noticing how much the essential oils combined with my own homemade self-care products have helped both mentally and emotionally, I couldn't wait to share it with all my friends and family. With the care, love, and support from my husband, Reuben, I became more motivated and had the courage to share my story, joy, and products with everyone. This is how my passion project manifested and created me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for allowing me to feel comfortable enough to be open and be myself. I wouldn't be here without your love and support.

With Love,
