ep. 28: Holly Ramey
Tarot reader and reiki master Holly Ramey talks about how to create magic in your everyday life, practical ways to use crystals, the drugstore eyeshadow that doubles as her favorite highlighter, and shares a recipe for her go-to heart healing bath.
Our guest this week is tarot reader, reiki master, and yoga instructor Holly Ramey. Holly is known for providing deeply insightful tarot readings, reiki healing sessions, and events that are both healing and educational, such as new moon ceremonies and Crystals 101 workshops.
In this episode, Holly told us why she left the fashion industry to become a healer and her thoughts about the "Instagram Witch" trend. Holly talked about how creating magic in your everyday life doesn't have to be complicated – according to Holly, magic can be found in acts as simple as taking three deep breaths or going on a short walk. Holly also clarified some common misconceptions about the tarot (tip: it isn't fortune telling!) and told us how tarot readings can provide guidance through difficult times.
Holly and Jesse talked about Holly's all-time favorite beauty products, including the ingredients Holly uses to create her favorite healing bath (scroll down for her recipe!), why she loves Nars products, and the gold drugstore eyeshadow that we should all be using as a highlighter.

holly's go-to healing bath recipe
From Holly: "This is my favorite GO TO recipe for a Self Love + Heart Healing Bath! It was given to me by my teacher (Mama Medicine) and I do it as a special treat to myself a few times a year."
1-2 cups Epsom salt
1-2 tablespoons of pink Himalayan salt
Teaspoon of cocoa powder
1 can of coconut milk
1 bottle of red wine (save a glass to drink)
Crystals (one or all of these) : rose quartz, rhodochrosite, jade and/or aventurine
Candles in white, pink or green
Essential Oils of lavender and rose absolute
Red, pink or white rose petals
Light your candle(s), burn a cleansing herb like sage or Palo Santo and pass the smoke around your body, step into the bath and place your crystal on your heart. Breathe into the heart space and imagine loving energy filing your heart as your inhale, and releasing anything you need to as you exhale. Soak for as long as you like!
