Meet Kara

I never would have dreamed turning 40 would feel this good. ~ Kara


My journey to bring you Me Time Botanicals began after my own struggles with self-care & blemished skin. I found myself burned out from my corporate career, in an abusive marriage, and trying to juggle family life. It was challenging to find 'me time' and put myself last on the list constantly.  

Hormonal breakouts were showing up on my skin because I wasn't doing the best things for my body and skin. I felt overwhelmed, overworked and insecure about how I looked.  Sound familiar? After many tear-filled sleepless nights, I realized that if I was going to show up as my best self, it was important to fill up my own cup first. 



After building up the courage to leave my abusive relationship and (ultimately) finding true supportive love, I found happiness in yoga classes, meditation, and through the natural skincare rituals I was creating. And I fell in love with it. My skin started healing and so did my soul. 

Inspired and renewed, I felt a calling to teach women it is OK to pause, to carve out Me Time through those same rituals. Fueled by my passion, I enrolled in Formula Botanica's award winning Organic Cosmetic Science School to broaden my formulation knowledge and to dive deeper into plant and skin science. After graduating, I set out to create a multi-tasking high performing botanical-based skin care line that encourages you to carve out Me Time with all of the self love, and none of the overwhelm. 

It is truly a pleasure to be a part of your journey.


Enjoy your Me Time,




My Promise to You

My Favorite Ritual

Of course, I shouldn't have favorites. That's like saying (out loud) you have a favorite kid, right?!


But, Berry Bright is a treat for the skin and the senses. Slathering on a Berry Bright mask and taking a nice long soak in the tub with Float in the Buff revitalized my skin and soul!
