My name is Shavonne and I created Holistic Melanin as a way to help all everyone, but especially people of color, learn to live holistically.

I feel that holistic living is portrayed in a certain way.  It’s always a super skinny, yoga doing, vegan, non-makeup wearing, dreadlocked Caucasian woman. I don’t fit that image and neither do a plethora of other women.

I believe that because of this current image, holistic living is not accessible to everyone out there. I want to change that.

You don’t have to give up anything to live holistically. You can still wear makeup, drink alcohol, eat meat, go to church and whatever else you want.

It’s about balance! So as long as everything you’re doing is working to balance your mind, body and spirit, you’re on the right path.

I’m going to show you how I live holistically by showing you what I do to take care of myself. What books I’m reading, what makes up my spirituality, what makeup I use, what I meditate with, what crystals have found their way into my life, and more.

Welcome to Holistic Melanin.
