“Ah-muh-ree” – Chest for storage, niche cupboard, pantry, vestments and tools, a place for sacred oils.
When I first started experimenting with natural skin care ingredients it was out of a small closet which I had set up like a beauty pantry. I named my business “Almery”, an obscure reference to a church cabinet where sacred oils are kept. I started taking clients at home and my client base quickly grew. I soon realized I needed to transition to a brick and mortar location. This opportunity for growth also brought to me the idea of creating a spa type environment where I could provide space for women practitioners to hone their craft and start their own businesses alongside each other. The new concept Almery “& Company” was born – but we still needed to find a home. Growing up in Huntington Beach I would walk past this old Georgian style brick building on the way home from school. I had mentally bookmarked it as a place I would one day live but later found out it was an office building – so I ended up living my dream there instead! The home I once wanted for myself became the home of Almery & Co. We are proud to offer this space – a place where skilled practitioners welcome clients to experience their particular craft. The doors here are open to anyone needing respite from their busy life. Come and be rejuvenated! Release the bad energy and stress that clings to you. Leave here feeling renewal. These are the gifts of healing hands, sacred oils, and botanical essences. We encourage you to set aside time to give back to yourself. We have fresh tea and snacks daily and have a clean open environment for you to enjoy.
