Welcome to House of Lukaya! I've been studying herbal medicine and making natural skin care products since 2000. After years of self-testing on family and friends, I began selling these creations at local markets, eventually opening a brick and mortar location in Richmond’s historic Shockoe Bottom neighborhood. The shop offered a unique selection of wearable and wall art, in addition to my handcrafted body care, incense and oils. I accepted some work on consignment and enjoyed providing the surrounding community with guilt-free gifts they wouldn't see anywhere else. About a year after moving to a more central location in October 2010, i decided to close the storefront to focus my efforts on the web and in stores. Thank you for joining me as I discover where the path leads next!
