Meet the Maker
Ojai Botanika was started by me, Malina, as a way to share my handmade, vegan soaps with the world. I was born and raised in Ojai, California, and have always been inspired by the natural beauty and unique energy of this little valley. I began my journey of creating natural bath and body products when I was 14 years old. As a homeschooler, I was fascinated with natural and holistic health, and I taught myself how to make herbal lotions, balms, and makeup. Later, a friend introduced me to traditional, natural soap making. I fell in love with the magical process. It was incredible! I felt like I was an ancient alchemist creating magical potions… I was hooked! After several years of research, inspirations, and many midnight concoctions, I was able to create my own unique soap formulas that I absolutely adore to this day. I’m 22 now and feel so blessed to be doing what I love and helping to bring some soapy love and light to the world!
