INTENTIONAL. BEAUTIFUL. POTENT.

EXPERTLY FORMULATED POTIONS

HANDCRAFTED HERBAL CREATIONS

PERSONALIZED CONSULTS

BY HARNESSING THE MEDICINAL POWERS OF PLANTS, HERBS, AND NUTRITIOUS FOOD.

SOUTH OF EDEN CELEBRATES THE INTIMATE CONNECTION BETWEEN PLANTS AND HUMANS BY HANDCRAFTING BEAUTY AND WELLNESS PRODUCTS USING THE WISDOM OF ANCIENT MEDICINE-MAKING COMBINED WITH SCIENCE-BACKED TRAINING, INTUITION, AND YES...A LITTLE WITCHY MAGIC, TOO.

In a world where prescription drugs are considered to be the ultimate answer for every ailment, and visiting one specialist for one part of the body, and an entirely different doctor for something else, we’ve become grossly out of touch with our bodies as a whole.

South of Eden creates products that return to ancient tradition - calling upon the same effective plant and herb medicines that have been used for centuries. This wisdom, combined with science-backed studies and years of specialized training, offers you products and consults that work to support the uniqueness of you.

When you invest in your health by acquiring new knowledge, by tapping into what’s naturally on offer - instead of reaching for the latest chemical concoction or over-the-counter drug - you empower yourself to make more informed choices.

Choices that are rooted in autonomy, self-knowing, and respect and appreciation for all living things - including yourself.

SOUTH OF EDEN’S MISSION

TO SHARE THE SCIENCE-BACKED GIFTS OF HEALING HERBS & PLANTS, THROUGH POTENT EDIBLE AND TOPICAL CREATIONS, WHILE STAYING ROOTED IN ANCESTRY, INTUITION, AND EDUCATION.

MAKING WITCHY SHIT - THAT ACTUALLY WORKS - SINCE 2016

LILIANA RUIZ-HEALY

NUTRITONIST

I’m Liliana Ruiz-Healy - mistress of herbs, purveyor of potions, and plant-medicine-maker.

All the cute self-proclaimed titles aside, I’m actually professionally trained in this stuff.
(Keep scrolling for my list of credentials).

But how did I get into the world of holistic healing and plant magic?

It started while searching for answers to my own health concerns. I was pre-diabetic, overweight, my hormones were completely out-of-whack, I had thyroid issues, skin issues... you name it, I probably had it! And relying on the latest fad diet or what western medicine* told me I should do, left me feeling even more disconnected from my body. (*Not to mention that doctors only get about 50 minutes of nutritional training!)

I began diving deep into nutritious food, exploring traditional plant medicines, discovering all the ways flowers and herbs could help heal, support, and replenish my body from the inside out. What a game changer!

I couldn’t keep all this goodness to myself. Compelled to share these plant-sourced gifts with others, I began making food infused with herbs and other flower medicines. By creating tinctures (herbal extractions), teas, and beauty oils, and educating on vitality-boosting foods, I can support you in building and maintaining a healthful life.

Feeling truly GOOD isn’t some unattainable, mysterious thing - it’s something you can cultivate within yourself, with the right tools and knowledge. Curious? A personalized consultation may be exactly what the witch doctor ordered!

ROOTED IN TRADITION

I was raised in Mexico City, in a country where ancient plant medicine and foods coexist with the modern world.

After moving to the USA in 2015, I noticed the lack of readily available herbs and an ignorance around native traditions. I’d been taking the practices I grew up with for granted.

Now, with everything I create for South of Eden, I honor and pay respect to my rich cultural heritage and lineage by drawing inspiration from them however I can. Many of my recipes and remedies have been handed down through my family. It delights me that I now get to share them with you.
