Thanks for stopping by! I’m Sara (pronounced "Sa-da") Larios and I am thrilled to share holistic skincare products and homemade remedies that I create with revolutionary love. I hope to make it easier for you to find natural solutions or to inspire you to make your own creations.
I am an herbal enthusiast, cannabis advocate, and activist against capitalism(and all the oppression that falls under it) and white supremacy. My passion is to encourage self-love through therapeutic rituals and holistic products.
Maitri, a virtue for true love, begins with loving yourself which then radiates towards others. As I learned to love myself, I realized that I found more benefits from using earth-based products than all the expensive products I tried for treating my acne/scars and minimizing stretch marks. There are several essential routines that could benefit us yet we are sold tons of products and services that are ineffective and costly. Did you know that our body is more like a sponge than a barrier? Unfortunately, commercial products (cosmetic and house cleaning) are loaded with preservatives and other endocrine disruptors that slowly accumulate in our bodies. I chose to create these products to share nature's love with others and to promote self-love.
Natural products should always play an important role in human life. Various parts of the plants like root, bark, seed and leaves have been an important source of medicine for thousands of years. At Maitri Healing Co., we are constantly learning about Salvadoran, ancient Indian and Chinese medicinal traditions, which can be integrated into our fast-paced lives for good health, improving our way of living at the moment and future generations to come.
I am a firm believer that we are what we eat and what we put on our skin. Every product created for Maitri Healing Co. contains the finest organic, plant-based ingredients that are sustainably sourced. Maitri Healing Co. offers effective, botanical wellness products in small batches to ensure quality ingredients without harmful preservatives. With holistic intentions, products are created free from toxins, such as artificial fragrance, preservatives, parabens, and petroleum, etc. We don’t test on animals.
Each time you use a Maitri Healing Co. product you are growing your relationship with nature and yourself.
In this modern, trendy world, we have done enough damage to nature and ourselves. It is high time we start changing our ways, to synchronize ourselves with nature by respecting Mother Earth and understanding Earth’s healing abilities. We need to trust in our bodies regenerative abilities with the help of Earth's abundant healing ways.
Business and Logo Story:
When I was creating a logo I knew I wanted ancient symbols to be involved. I did extensive research until I came across two ancient Rune symbols that mean LOVE and WARRIOR. I played around with the symbols and created a symbol to represent LOVE WARRIOR! I believe that Love Warriors could make a difference in the world! We need to stay strong and have the courage to continue spreading love despite transitions and tribulations in life. Love Warriors are brave, powerful, and filled with love and gratitude!
To be a Love Warrior means to stand up for what you believe and to believe that LOVE is real! That's how I also chose Maitri Healing as my business name. Maitri stands for developing loving-kindness towards oneself which then radiates towards others. As I have struggled with anxiety and depression, loving myself is a daily struggle. Learning to be kind to myself and practicing maitri allows me to be aware of negative patterns that only makes things harder so that I could respond with more compassion and love towards myself and others.
Maitri allows you to appreciate the beauty in the world! Loving ourselves give us more love to share with others!
Let's be LOVE WARRIORS!
