About Me


I'm Patty, a San Francisco native and moon-loving night owl. In 2017, I started Free Flow Botanicals out of a desire to help conscious women get gorgeous skin from within. My current offerings include skin health coaching,  high vibrational plant-based skincare products, holistic beauty classes, Reiki healing sessions, and the Holistic Beauty Collective, an online community for learning and connection.

My Story

An ex-corporate junkie, I constantly felt depleted and stressed 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. And that gave me the courage and strength to leave my corporate job and take a huge leap of faith by pursuing a full-time education in Western Herbal Medicine.

My Mission

As a Clinical Herbalist, my mission is to provide the knowledge, support, and tools to help you heal old wounds, raise your vibration, improve your health, and revitalize your skin from the inside out. I take a holistic approach in my clinical practice, using medicinal herbs and plant-based ingredients while avoiding chemical-derived or harmful substances 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. By coaching, supporting, and holding you accountable, I will be your guide each and every step of the way. A brief phone consultation is all we need to begin.

Don’t wait like I did. There’s no better time to invest in your inner and outer beauty because you deserve to be seen and cherished while sharing your unique gifts with the world!

❤ Patty
