You may say that I'm a Dreamer, but I'm not the only one...

We forget that we are a part of the web of Nature. Our mission is to help remember. Anointing the body brings us back to our true spirit, the one from which we were created, in which we feel a kindred spirit with nature and with humanity, and the spark of possibility. We believe that when you take care of yourself you are able to shine your light out into the word. As we take time for the ritual of self care we come to know, accept, and love ourselves. We are able to lift that veil of separation. Through bringing the natural world into our bodies we are able to know, accept, and love nature. We protect what we know. We nurture what we love.


Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the Earth...

Erica Ragusa is the founder of Ambika Herbals and a licensed massage therapist, certified herbalist, ayurvedic bodyworker and yoga instructor. From a young age she was drawn to the mystery and enchantment of the natural world. Visiting sacred lands, steaming in their saunas and dipping in their streams serve as inspiration. Erica enjoys spending the seasons in mountains, sleeping under the stars and learning the songs of the birds.

The studio was founded in 2010 to nourish our true nature through authentic bodywork + herbal rituals.  Joining Erica in the studio are Neuromuscular Massage Therapist Kristin Esber, who specializes in trigger point and sports massage; Amanda Meehan, a dual licensed Esthetician and Massage Therapist; and Janette Mikity, Reiki Master and Intuitive.

Through her massage practice she began to develop self care products to weave into the treatments, based on the philosophy of ayurveda and infused with the spirit of our natural world: whole plant extracts, pure essential oils, and crystal elixirs. We continue to draw nature into the heart of the apothecary by sourcing ingredients from local and artisan farmers and by gathering and growing herbs and crystals here in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We continue to bathe myself in ritual by infusing herbs and crystals under the moonlight to create enchanted body oils, botanic perfumes and therapeutic elixirs.

As you wear this apothecary on your body it becomes a part of your being and attunes you to the sacred. Join us in inviting ritual into your every day life, drawing nature into your being through botanic self care, and seeing the world through enchanted eyes.
