TheHoodwitch.com was a website and project that I had been working on for over a year. It started as a fun play on words, but also as a reference to the curanderas and the wise women in the neighborhood botanicas that I grew up in.These wise women were the healers. They were the shoulders to cry on, they could give you a recipe to clear up your colds, bring love into your life, or protect your flower garden. They are the beacons of light for their community and that has always inspired me. This experience has allowed me to explore my understandings of metaphysics, folk medicine, and self care in ways I never thought possible. I have always believed my purpose in this life was to share, uplift, support, and spread love to the world around me.
