About Me


I'm Patty, a San Francisco native and moon-loving night owl with a passion for holistic beauty & wellness. In 2017, I started Free Flow Botanicals with the desire to help every woman live her best life - flowing free and inspiring change. I proudly offer The Gorgeous Skin from Within Method (1:1 coaching),  holistic beauty classes, and high vibrational skincare products. I also manage the Holistic Beauty Collective, an plant-based community for learning and connection.

My Story

A highly sensitive person (HSP) and ex-corporate junkie, I constantly felt depleted and burned out trying to meet the unrealistic expectations I set for myself. Growing up in a family with intergenerational trauma fueled by narcissism, addiction, and depression, I lacked self-love which led to all kinds of skin and health issues including acne, poor digestion, anxiety, and chronic fatigue.

After hitting rock bottom a decade ago, I declared that I'd had enough of feeling sick and tired all the time, and made the commitment to begin my healing journey. Through profound experiences with medicinal herbs, Reiki, and self-care practices, I learned to connect to my heart and love myself unconditionally. That gave me the courage to leave my corporate job and take a huge leap of faith by starting a three year training program in Clinical Herbalism.

My Mission

As a Clinical Herbalist and Holistic Beauty Coach, my mission is to help you look and feel your best by providing the tools, knowledge, and support that enhance your unique, natural beauty. I take a holistic approach in my clinical practice, using medicinal herbs and plant-based ingredients while avoiding toxic or harmful ingredients of any kind. Working with me, you’ll receive care that's customized to your individual needs so that you can achieve your health and beauty goals as quickly as possible. By coaching, supporting, and holding you accountable, I will be your guide each and every step of the way. 

Don’t wait like I did. There’s no better time to invest in yourself because you deserve to live your best life while sharing your unique gifts with the world!

❤ Patty
