During a recent stay in Ojai, I discovered the magical and mystical Palo Santo. It’s warm, delicately sweet and woodsy aroma filled me with a sense of peace and tranquility. Intrigued, I learned that Palo Santo grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal.

I was immediately drawn to By Nieves handmade natural body care products and was equally intrigued by her story.

For the better part of her childhood, Nieves traveled the West Coast of California with pack donkeys alongside her father, a folk musician and renegade intellectual. Because of her upbringing in the counterculture, she…
