Boketto's arrival to Richmond, Virginia is just a small testament to how hungry this local community is for deep nourishment in every way. Just as I thought that travels to New York and California would be my only opportunities to indulge in high quality self-care, this wholesome wellness boutique + modern apothecary marked its territory in the heart of the Fan District. Jelena, owner of Boketto, has not only quickly made me feel like family, but has already sprinkled her knowledge and inspiration all over this place. She made a considerably generous donation towards our most recent NOURISH Workshop, supplying all of the adaptogenic herbs that went into our special Women's Blend. 

From natural beauty and skincare to modern herbs and supplements, Jelena has hand-selected every product with intention, love and wellness in mind. While most people have their favorite local coffee shop, I've called this place my homebase, where I'm typically found occupying the sunny nook (next to shop dog Ollie) with ashwagandha-infused lattes, among other things.

This bright, beautiful and loving little nook on N. Vine has had its doors quietly open since Valentine's Day, however the grand opening takes places tomorrow, and in the spirit of celebrating all that is good here in Richmond, I'm sharing my top fifteen little wellness luxuries/necessities (however you look at it) that deserve your love and investment towards the commitment to your long-term health. Do drop in if you're in the area and prepare to leave with a full heart and some mind-blowing holistic products in tow.
