Hello there and welcome. I am so glad that you found your way here. My name is Laura and I am head mixtress at The Floral Mixtress. The Floral Mixtress is a blog about handmade, local, bespoke, sustainable and beautiful things inspired by flowers. I hope that this blog will be an antidote to a modern life that is too fast, too lacking in connection with the natural world and too full of disposable commodities.
It is a place where budding or blooming floristas and apprentice mixers and mixtresses can gather and share in floral-inspired things to make their lives more luscious.
I’ve been mixing lotions and potions since I was about 10 years old and I adore it. I make my own cleansers, masks, moisturisers, serums, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner among other things. I also love cooking with flowers and making my own herbal remedies.
I hope this little corner of the interweb becomes a regular stop on your cyber travels.
If you’d like to see more of me check me out at:
I am a Naturopath (BHSc maj. Complementary Medicine from Charles Sturt University) and Nutritionist (Post. Grad. Dip. Nutritional Science from Massey University).
In the rest of my life I am a part-time Pug Mama to the gorgeous Ruby and Jasmine (Daddy and I don’t love each other any more in THAT way but we still love our girls very much) and partner to the big D.
