Founded by Christy Whitney-Matz out of a deeply felt calling to work in the healing arts, her phenomenal line is the culmination and journey of her self-study of herbal remedies, nutrition, and the practice of Ayurveda for 10 years before jumping off the cliff fully and committing to what is now pAra.
As a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner and a self-studied holistic living walking body of knowledge that practices what it preaches, Christy interweaves human spirit, plant spirit, and the divine in each of her creations. As a Reiki-infused holistic skincare line, pAra emphasizes the return to beauty ritual as nourishing medicine and each potion is created through intuitive sensing, visioning, and listening with the help of ancestral guides and the backing of scientific research.
All ingredients used in pAra creations are sourced carefully and with the health of Mother Earth at the forefront. All plants are organically or ethically wildcrafted, and come from small farmers who grow with love and intention from seed to harvest: nurturing the full cycle of life, and harvesting plants at their peak of medicinal potency. Extracts are created lovingly and slowly in-house, and all products are created in micro-batches in a small studio space overlooking a green cliff, listening to the sweet sounds of bird song, flutes and chimes, while being infused with a blend of Shamanic practice and Reiki life force energy. This harmonious blend of intentions and infusions manifests as blends that are healing, brimming with vitality, and vibrating with the highest plant medicine.
And, because Christy has a soft spot for horses (especially those who have been forgotten), a portion of pAra’s proceeds go toward horse rescue and recovery at one of the shelters in the Unwanted Project Exhibition.
