About


Welcome to OUROBOROS HERBALS. We invite you to partake in self-care rituals that will enchant your senses and awaken your spirit.

Our process involves carefully selecting and sourcing our raw materials from nature, followed by adding a touch of alchemy as we meticulously handcraft blends for your BATH, BODY & SPIRIT. Each creation aims to find a balance between practicality and indulgence. 

 

BEHIND OUROBOROS HERBALS

My name is Mystique, and in 2015 together with my husband Julio, currently co-owner and barber at el Corte, we dreamed up an idea to create men’s grooming products that would become part of his repertoire.

So, I brought together my love for everything DIY, appreciation of herbalism and alchemy; took our idea along with a vision of providing a sensorial experience, and made loads of test batches. Once we were more than happy with the results, Julio began introducing them into his work and guess what? People liked them! And then, people wanted to buy them!? I was ecstatic, by that point I had already begun expanding the products that I was making for us, our friends and family. After some serious thought, along with the loving support of my partner, I added an esoteric aura and OUROBOROS HERBALS was born.

I am behind each product and all that is OUROBOROS HERBALS. I find inspiration in Mother Earth and all that she provides for us. The long history of women healers, along with the origins and wisdom of natural healing, awaken something deep within me. I am fascinated by the mystery of the human being’s very essence. And so, guided by inspiration and intuition I create with passion and love what I do. I hope you love it too!

Currently, I am enrolled in an intensive organic skincare formulation course and have future plans to expand our BATH, BODY & SPIRIT lines.
