Fresh squeezed lemons. Vanilla extract. Extra virgin olive oil. These aren't the ingredients in some gourmet dessert—they're all components of Victoria Raisky Anderson's lemon vanilla mousse hydrating body butter. A holistic aesthetician, Raisky Anderson creates an entire line of organic, all-natural skincare products, including handmade facial creams and lotions. She uses these products during holistic treatments at her spa and wellness center, Nurture Ritual.
After analyzing a client's skin, Anderson can incorporate her own products into a customized facial. Or perhaps she'll recommend a microcurrent treatment, which can promote cellular regeneration and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Anderson doesn't focus entirely on appearance, however. She also administers healing energy therapies in-person or via Skype, helping clients push past mental and emotional roadblocks like a bulldozer powered entirely by positive thoughts.
