Simply Divine Botanicals is the heartchild of Master Herbalist and Natural Healer Barbara Rogers. The name of the line comes from the happenstance that made a dream of creating pure potions into a reality beyond scientific imagination. Dedicated to health and healing, (Barbara opened the first Raw Food restaurant in Las Vegas) when she realized the effects of harmful chemicals applied to the skin, her quest began.
One night in an act of Divine Intervention the answer was given to Barbara and the first product, Creme de Rose was born, and the formulas continue to come. Since that day her handcrafted, Reiki-energized skincare has drawn people from all over the world, not just for the healing qualities of these potent, heart-centered products, but for the generosity of spirit of this inspired woman.
Our health and beauty products are free from synthetic additives and are 100% chemical free. If this is your first time using Simply Divine Botanicals, may we suggest you purchase our sample kit to get better acquainted with our products.
Below is an edited extract from an Interview with Simply Divine Botanicals founder, Barbara Rogers, from 2015.
"I was always attracted to natural foods and products even when Health Food stores were far and few. When I was 40 (I am 65 now) I had a small health issue and sought natural healing. The moment I walked in the door to the office of an old fashioned herbalist with shelves filled with homemade tinctures and teas I was hooked. I immediately closed the business I had, and went all in on learning everything I could about natural healing.
One day while getting a manicure I overheard the woman next to me talking about her dying husband who had been all over the US seeking help. A voice in my head said it was parasites so I leaned over and told her what I thought. She made an appointment and two weeks later his health was restored and he was sending his friends who were then sending their friends. David Wolfe had just published his first book on raw food, it spoke to me and I contacted him. I started including raw food into the program I used with my clients and quickly saw impressive results. By this time I had a strong client base of more than 10,000 clients and decided there needed to be a raw food café where people could experience the benefits of raw food. One year later, I opened the first Raw Food café in Las Vegas and a few months after that we were in Vogue magazine.
When I took my idea of chemical-free products to several labs that made conventional skincare, I was told I must use chemical emulsifiers and preservatives. I could not accept this as truth, so one night I prayed for an answer. The next night I was sitting in bed writing and the first formula starting writing itself. The next day I purchased the ingredients and made Creme de Rose in my kitchen. After that the formulas kept coming hence the name Simply Divine. None of the formulas were created in a lab, I was in my pajamas in my bed. Essential oils are the preservative.
As far as Spirituality: After learning herbs I began studying Metaphysics and the huge part the mind plays in illness and in healing and I became very good at manifesting. We are mini creators made of The Creator. Being raised in a few religious institutions pushed me away from God and Metaphysics brought me back. Florence Shinn’s book The Game of Life written in the 1920’s made the biggest impact on me, and I still read a few lines from her books several times a week. Religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell and Spirituality is for those who have already been there. I read that someplace. About 4 years ago I started practicing Agnihotra, and I jumped to a whole new place. I currently live in the El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico where I have a retreat centre, Casa Picaflores, and support Organic Farming.
I hope my story will inspire others not to be limited by their past or even their present. We truly are limited ONLY by our false beliefs. I am not special in anyway, if one can do it all can do it. We all have our gifts and our gaps but no one is greater than another.
Follow your heart. You will never go wrong and doors will open and assistance will be provided. We are living in interesting times. Fear feeds the dark and keeps you from your good and the good you can do for others. Be FEARLESS!"
