ABOUT STARRFIRESEVEN & WANDERING FOX APOTHECARY
Hello and Welcome! My name is Nakeesha Starr Clark, creator, owner & operator of Wandering Fox Apothecary by StarrfireSeven, a home-based business that started in the small town of Woodland, Washington. A southern girl by birth, I grew up in rural Georgia, joined the military, traveled the world and landed here in the Cascades region fulfilling a lifelong dream of living in the Pacific Northwest. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, dog mom, veteran, artist, poet, photographer, healer, warrior, traveler, lover of coffee, books, old trucks, animals, and all things wild and beautiful.
How it all started
After 20 years of military service with the Air Force it was time to start thinking about retiring and what to do next. Anxious for the next chapter but with no ideas or inspiration I was frustrated and overwhelmed. Then, a chance encounter with a Seer, started me on a path of self-discovery and the realization of my true calling as a healer. Combining my passion for nature, handcrafting, art and holistic wellness, Wandering Fox Apothecary was born.
Why Wandering Fox?
I have an old gypsy soul and an insatiable case of Wanderlust. My spirit animal is the gray fox, revealed in a most profound experience at a time in my life where I needed divine guidance. The gray fox represents astral energy, dream work, creativity and awakening to one's psychic gifts to heal and empower others.
I have always loved the word apothecary. It conjures images of dusty shelves and old bottles with vintage labels, oddities and curiosities. Wandering Fox Apothecary carries hand-crafted bath & body products, candles, wax melts, home décor, gifts and accessories made right here in my home. The StarrfireSeven product line uses organic, wild crafted and ethically sourced, natural ingredients from around the world, always created and packaged in a clean and safe environment. I also offer selections from other women-owned, small businesses who share my values and commitment to providing high quality, minimal economic impact products. All brands offered by Wandering Fox Apothecary are small-batch, handcrafted for social good, eco-friendly and not found on Amazon.
So why all the weird product names?
Because words are magic!
Whether written or spoken, words are energy; physical manifestations of our innermost thoughts and our most powerful instruments for creating and transforming our reality. Words give us the ability to affect change, not only in ourselves, but in others and in the physical world around us. There are well documented studies of the effects words have on physical objects, and as humans we understand how words affect our emotions and psyche. With the StarrfireSeven product line I wanted to bring a little word magic into the mix. It was my intention to not only impart knowledge, by expanding the vocabulary, but also to invoke creativity and empower my customers to facilitate holistic transformation in their lives. I carefully selected words and archetypes that conjure images of peace, serenity, strength, and beauty as daily affirmations to manifest positive change. It is my sincere belief that we possess the power to heal ourselves, our environment, and our world and I hope to inspire others to believe in themselves and in the gifts that have been bestowed upon us by our creator. I am so excited to begin this new chapter and I look forward to sharing my creations with all of you. If you have any special orders or requests please contact me to discuss options. Thank you and Blessed Be!
