Who I Am

Welcome to Raven’s Edge, LLC. My name is Kim Elovirta and I am the owner and caretaker of this holistic wellness practice. I am an herbalist, healer, cook, soap maker, teacher and far more than the sum of my parts.
     My love of learning led me to a soap making class and then to herbal classes. They meshed so well with my love of cooking that it grew into a deep passion.  I never bought another bar of soap for my family again. Knowing that your skin is your biggest organ and absorbs all that you put on it I was worried about the toxins I might be using.  I started making all of my skin care products. This grew into my soaps, lotions & potions for beautiful skin. I make everything in small batches filled with organic ingredients and healing love that nourish you and your skin.  I offer a full line of skincare products that continues to expand. I use natural and organic ingredients in everything I make and only scent with organic essential oils as I wouldn't want anything artificial on my skin or yours.
      As an herbalist and healer, I work with people trying to balance life's stressful transitions such as adolescents and menopause. I believe fully in Hippocrates quote “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” I am an outspoken defender of an individual's personal power when it comes to medicine and health. I strive to teach people how to identify and use local plants and herbs to maintain vibrant health, how to eat according to their particular requirements, and how to embrace an extraordinary holistic lifestyle.
     I offer herbal workshops and private wellness consultations.  An herbal apothecary is available to you for all those supplies a home or village herbalist needs.
     With every service that I offer, I strive to help you re-discover the natural healer within; so that you may nurture peace and wholeness within; to make educated decisions and be your most beautiful self.

While I consider myself Self-Taught in many aspects of my life, be it with herbs or cooking or whatever, I have studied formally, and continue to read, take classes and workshops that support and nurture all the parts of me.
