My name is Bethany Joy.

I am the Director for My Botanical Life, Azores and am excited to share with you the joy in botanical products right here on our beautiful island. 


My experience and education is in biology, integrative healing, culinary pursuits, small-scale farming, animal care, plant based products for self-care and natural skincare formulations. 


I will be your facilitator for these workshops, and I look forward to teaching you the foundations and skills required to make your own beautiful, natural, non-toxic products for yourself, your family, your friends, and even your pets. 

​Join me at my home farm in Aqua d'Alto in my workshop/studio for half days of learning self-care goodness and botanical explorations!
