She travelled and lived in Latvija, France, Denmark and Netherlands prior to moving to USA. Her extensive knowledge of herbs and cosmetic botanicals comes from her growing up and spending a lot of time on her family farm in the Southern region of Latvia, called Latgale, where she spent summers helping her grandmother Tekla Lazdane (1925-2013) gather herbs and botanicals for the "winter pharmacy." "My grandmother taught me about botanical efficacy and timing, she used to say, while pointing at leaves of plants or berries: "This will relieve cough, this you can add to your hair rinse, this will aid as a skin remedy for scrapes and bruising..."All plants were picked before summer solstice usually 23rd of June, and at certain hour of the day, as plants were believed to have the most potency and reach their full bloom prior to that time, and the results were amazing, that taught me how powerful healing forces of nature can be" (I.Thomas,2014)
It was at age of 11, that she has given her grandmother her first facial using several herbal blends and homemade masks.
