My name is Rodi Bragg, and I was born and raised on my ancestral homelands of my tribe the Chumash on the Central Coast of California. I started my own skincare line, Rose Alchemista, ten years ago after struggling with homelessness, a police assault and trauma. I turned to my childhood love of plants to heal myself and others. I went on to study aesthetics at Aveda Institute Portland to become a licensed Esthetician. I now offer holistic facials in Portland, Oregon and handcraft my extensive skincare line of our organic farm apothecary in Washington. My hope is to share the power of self care to help others as it helped me on my own healing journey.
