WE'D LOVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU AND POPPY AND SOMEDAY?

 

I am Kari Jansen, founder of Poppy and Someday. My studies have been deep into Ayurveda & Western Herbalism. That is where Poppy and Someday’s formulas stem from. Gardening, wild harvesting, hand making and herbal solar infusions are incorporated into each product. The energy of the plants, nature, sun, and moon cycles all have a play in each product as well. My focus is using products as medicine so we can begin to find the balance within each of us.

 

your studio is based in laurel canyon, tell us more about the area?
 

Laurel Canyon is nested up into a magical hillside in the middle of Los Angeles. It is so quiet except the sounds of birds, wind and hillside animals - what a perfect place to create each product. All the combinations are made in small batches infused with ritual. And every time you use an Oil, Salve, or Mist it will hold the energy of this magical oasis here in Laurel Canyon. Where these canyons are filled history of music AND art. It brings out more creative flow, which inspires the process.

 

YOUR SPACE IS SO BEAUTIFUL, ONE DAY I HOPE I CAN VISIT. CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THE TREATMENTS YOU OFFER?

Thank you. It is a magical space. We have an outside garden spa connected by french doors that lead into the treatment room. It is surrounded by herbs, plants, fountains and birds. The garden spa has a claw foot tub, herbal steam room and infrared sauna. It’s the perfect setting to allow your treatment to soak in. The treatments are all based in Ayurvedic traditions. The combo of herbal infused oils and steam help to detox the body of toxins. One of the most popular treatments, a Shirodhara, helps to reset your Endocrine system and calms your nerves by taking you deeply into a meditative state.

FOR THOSE OF US CURIOUS COULD YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT AYURVEDA?
 

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic “whole-body” healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. It’s founded on the 5 elements which are Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether. The elements make up the three doshas which are Kapha (Earth & Water), Pitta (Fire & Water) and Vata (Air & Ether). Then it is all about finding the balance within your dosha field.

 

NOW TO THE POPPY AND SOMEDAY PRODUCTS WE STOCK IN STORE, MY FAVOURITE IS THE MARFA MOON MIST, CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THE AROMATHERAPY FACE AND BODY MISTS?
 

The mists are my favoUrite too! They are lovely to mist on your body or space. Each has energetics to clear negative energy and cleanse unwanted toxins. So it can help your emotional body as well as clearing your field.

AS YOU KNOW WE STOCK THE NEROLI BLOSSOM SERUM, CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS PRODUCT AND IT'S PURPOSE?
 

The Neroli Blossom Serum is a great light serum for any face type. Neroli reduces inflammation, alleviates stress, stimulates circulation and enhances mood. This serum is a good aid in reducing signs of agEing, and diminishes the appearance of scars and acne as well as hydrating dry, dehydrated skin.  

 

IF OUR READERS VISIT LOS ANGELES ONE DAY, WHAT'S YOUR HIGHLIGHTS FOR THEIR VISIT?
 

Los Angeles is a great city to visit. I love roaming around Venice, stopping at Gjusta for a bit to eat, shopping on Lincoln at the General Store, or taking a walk on the beach. I also love visiting the Griffith Observatory which has many hikes that overlook LA or the Hollywood sign.
