JEssa Blades

Jessa Blades is a celebrity makeup artist, herbalist and wellness expert and pioneer in the natural beauty movement. Well before entire media platforms were dedicated to dissecting the toxicity of the modern woman's beauty regimen, Jessa was busy testing and developing her very own clean beauty line of skincare and herbal tea. Jessa launched Blades Natural Beauty in 2008, marking the beginning of a fifteen year journey to educate and empower women to heal themselves (and their skin) from the inside out using food, herbs, and the best products products available. In addition to coaching her clients one-on-one through simple plant-based beauty and food routines, Jessa has expanded her practice to workshops and masterclass trainings to educate inspire with a focus on wellness, cannabis, natural beauty, Ayurveda, and food-as-medicine. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, VOGUE, Well + Good, Glamour, Mind Body Green, Refinery29, and Into the Gloss to name a few.

At Holistic Picnic, she’ll be selling herbal apothecary goodies and skincare, honey and lemon spoons, hand-built ceramics and facial reflexology tools to up-level your self-care rituals.
