meet the amazing tonja from moondance botanicals!

Tonja is the remarkable owner of MoonDance Botanicals, a fabulous boutique in Denver that makes all natural gourmet bath and body products handcrafted from organic and pure ingredients. We were thrilled when she wanted to bring her expertise and wonderful Luscious Local Skincare workshop to the Makerie Summer Series. Students will create a nourishing facial exfoliant, a fresh mask for the face and body and a silky hydrating facial cream, along with be given plenty more recipes for other skin care delights. Living in the dry Colorado climate, we could all use some great tips on how to care for our skin!

Get to know the beautiful Tonja below! We especially love her answer to finding life balance. 


John O’Donohue’s  To Bless The Space Between Us  is at the top of my inspiration library. 

A summer hike you love.
Any hike with a hot springs as its final destination

A favorite summer vegetable.
Lamb’s quarter

Favorite food hangout in town.
City O’ City in Denver

Dandelions!_and herbal-infused vino verde! screams summer.

A risk you’re glad you took.
Leaving power suits and an expense account for the riches of nature!

A favorite gift you’ve received. 
An emerald necklace that shimmers like the greens of Ireland.

What you love most about what you do.
Connecting women to the wild wisdom within themselves.

The most challenging or difficult part about what you do.
Juggling the many aspects of owning a business while raising a daughter and finding time for stillness. 

The lesson I keep learning.
We choose.

My go-to outfit.
Cowgirl boots with knee socks, a gorgeous thrift store skirt and my well worn and loved jean jacket!

Daily practice.
Three sun salutations ending with Warrior Pose. Writing. Lighting a candle at my altar asking for grace as I move through my day.

Any tricks for finding life balance? 
Self care! The more you nurture yourself the more you will have to nurture others.


Thank you so much Tonja!
