Self Care with a Feel-Good Vibe!
Ginger Michelle Apothecary was founded by Ginger Michelle Blakley. Ginger's many talents and interests started out in the Fine Arts. She attended and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Photography from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2001. During that time, she worked as a gardener for various landscaping companies including the City of Calgary Parks Department. Wishing to further pursue a carrier as a Gardener as well, Ginger then completed her Diploma in Ornamental Horticulture at Old’s College in 2004. During the years to follow as a gardening supervisor, artist & photographer; Ginger’s interest in exploring the various modalities available in energy medicine opened her up to a whole new world of possibilities and ways of being & thinking. In April of 2009 she visited Saskatoon Saskatchewan for a weekend channeling workshop hosted by Pepper Lewis who channels Gaia, Mother Earth. At this event she met who would become her husband and soul mate and his 4 amazing kids. Ginger relocated to Saskatoon in the fall of 2009 and has been loving it ever since. In July 2012 she was very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to the sacred valley in Peru with her husband to continue further exploring their shared interests into the healing arts of energy medicine and was invited to participate in various ceremonies with the indigenous elders & shamans of the Inca medicine wheel tradition. Later in search of rosewater for a home blessing ceremony, Ginger researched the distilling process so she could use her own homegrown roses. A new interest was born, Ginger became absolute fascinated in the study of making natural home remedies and skincare. She immersed herself learning this new craft and amazingly this provided a direct outlet to put all her interests, talents and education into a focused direction. In 2013 Ginger created Sesen Sun Natural Skincare and her first product being “Luminous Energy Smudge” An energy clearing and blessing spray that can be used in a multitude of practices. In Jan 2018 she rebranded to Ginger Michelle Apothecary and continues to grow, evolve and expand her products.
