We are Ashe and Christin, wife duo and owners of Pura Luna Women's Apothecary and our sister company LunaBella Make up and Hair. After years of making women feel and look great on the outside, we are making our dream of creating wholeness and beauty on the inside a reality. Women deserve better and more earth based options when it comes to our healthcare and healing. This is a place for women of all ages. From pre-teen to crone, we can all learn and encourage one another with our individual wisdom. It is our goal to provide alternative methods for women to heal themselves and empower them to do so with the help of their community. With the help of fellow herbalist and store manager, Lizo, we are happy to serve you.
Our space includes a health care boutique, our signature V-steam treatment room, a cozy community room and a nurturing garden. Our mission is to create sacred space for women to come together, learn, heal and grow. Our boutique has a plethora of beautiful things to smell, taste and touch. All of our herbal medicinals were made in house or by other women-owned ventures. We aim to encourage and support women owned businesses and have made it our priority to solely stock our shelves with our sisters’ creations.
As one of our herbal medicine modalities, we are excited to bring Vaginal (Yoni) Steaming to Santa Barbara. Women have used vaginal steaming around the globe for centuries to care for all levels of women’s health. The benefits include: regulating menstrual cycles; reducing or eliminating cramps, fibroids and cysts; balancing hormones, and treating bacterial infections and viruses. It also helps increase fertility and is excellent for postpartum vaginal and vulva health. This holistic women’s service is highly recommended from the first menses to menopause and beyond. Our relaxing V-steam room is here to help you with your health concerns, ailments or just to rejuvenate your creative center. Please check out our info page for more details and to book an appointment.
Our garden is a backyard sanctuary for women to relax, have a cup of tea and be in peace. There is an array of gorgeous seating areas made from re-used or recycled materials. Bring a blanket, snuggle up and exhale. We hope Pura Luna Women’s Apothecary becomes your sanctuary.
We absolutely love the Coastline crystal candle from LVL Collective. Once completely burned the candle reveals a Black Tourmaline -crystal of protection, to add to your bounty. There are 4 other crystal candles in the collection to choose from and are available in our shop.
Palo Santo is an incredible sacred smoke, used to purify and cleanse yourself and your space. We have bundles of this blessing herb and it also comes included in our Sacred Moon Bath Salts.
And of course, our absolute favorite crystal: Amethyst. Known for its ability to soothe the mind and emotions. All of these items are available on our online and physical shop in Santa Barbara, CA.
