Hi, I'm Ingrid!
I’m the founder of Alani Botanicals!
I grew up in an environment of natural remedies, healthy eating, and healing your body naturally. After getting married and having my daughter, I realized that I could do better and started changing my lifestyle for my own family’s sake.
When I became a mom and moved to the countryside from city living, I became a resourceful, “do-it-yourself” type of person. I changed many habits and embarked my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I love to cook, so I started creating recipes, making my household products, and began my journey of buying natural and organic foods and skincare products.
Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases, including Hashimoto, Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. However, it was then that my journey to keep my body as clean and healthy as possible got even more serious.
To continue my healthier lifestyle journey, I decided to become a Certified Yoga Teacher. Yoga has been part of my life for over a decade and has helped me cope with my autoimmune issues, reduced my pain and anxiety, and inspired me to live life more mindfully.

My mission is to help others with autoimmune conditions live a healthier lifestyle while creating a mind, body, and soul connection.

Hi, I'm Marilyn!
I’m the partner in crime!
I’m a mother of two beautiful children and a wife of a caring and loving husband. Since the age of 10, I began practicing Yoga and decided to continue with a healthy lifestyle into adulthood. One of my passion is to live healthy and care for my mind and body.
After I had my children, my son, at the age of two, developed severe eczema, and my daughter suffered from allergies. They were my motivation to take the journey of becoming an educated mom in nutrition, health, and skincare. I began educating myself and attending seminars about safe skin products and ingredients that I should avoid. I realized that what you eat is as important as the products that you put on your skin.
Ingrid and I have been friends for more than 30 years. When Ingrid approached me with her skincare and essential oils line, I didn’t hesitate but to give her products a try. Her moisturizers help my son’s eczema, and the essential oils helped my daughter allergies. Not only that, her facial cleansers, serums, and moisturizers helped my skin conditions. At that point, I decided to join her journey to help others with similar skin conditions and bring awareness about using mother nature’s ingredients on your body.
My mission is to continue living a healthy lifestyle and pass it on to my children.
Alani Botanicals was born out of frustration of trying to find natural and organic skincare products without harmful ingredients and preservatives to continue the journey of reducing body and skin inflammation to help build a stronger autoimmune system. Plants, seeds, and essential oils and extracts are best for your skin and overall health.
Reducing harmful ingredients and preservatives to enter your skin will help keep your body as preservative and chemical-free as possible. Plus, your skin will look and feel radiant.
Alani Botanicals helps women nourish their skin with plant-based, holistic, natural skincare products and essential oils.
About the products
Our skin is the largest organ in our body; if we are conscious about what we eat, we should equally be mindful of what we put on our skin. Everything that you put on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream and might affect your system.
Our products are cruelty-free, naturally-sourced, vegan, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and gluten-free, made with natural and organic ingredients. We use a blend of anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients made with organic and natural oils, extracts, and vitamins that are good for the skin and the environment; a perfect combination for those who suffer from autoimmune diseases looking to reduce the number of toxins entering your body. Though, anyone looking for cleaner and holistic skincare can use my products.
Our line of premium essential oils, can be used as aromatherapy, alleviate ailments, and easily be added to any of our products for further customization.
Using skincare products that are also good for the environment is important to us – that’s why we created these products! And we make it a point for our business practices to also follow an environmentally-friendly model. That’s why at Alani Botanicals we don’t use boxes and we only use recyclable packaging materials when shipping.
We hope you enjoy and fall in love with our products as much as we have!
