Conversations with Jasmine Lang

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmine Lang.

Hi Jasmine, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I began LYL during a time in my life where I was soul searching for deeper meaning & deeper connection to the things around me and within myself. I prayed for an opportunity that allowed me to provide a love offering to others while also combining the things that I love, nature and natural resources. At the time, I was living in Humboldt, CA amongst the beautiful redwood forest where natural resources are abundant. The slower-paced life in Humboldt blessed me with the freedom to explore new things creatively, and that’s where I began LYL.

I spent a lot of my time buying plants, shopping at local stores, and understanding the value of natural resources. I have always been a mixer and a maker. I began to make my own natural remedies, gifted concoctions to friends, and after that my mom invested the first $500 into my inspiration that soon became LYL BODY CARE.

Over the past six years, LYL has grown with me along my journey. I’ve been able to progress as a full-time entrepreneur, connect with others. and open new doors of opportunity in relation to wellness of the mind, body, & spirit. It was my quest for freedom that developed the foundation for my business.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
LYL has been the one thing I’ve always remained committed to. I am currently still a one woman show, and I am learning to ask for more help. At first, LYL was my sole priority, but now I have my foot in new doors & I’ve realized it’s time for me to expand and build a team. Although, It has been a very consistent, steady road. I have always allowed the progression to gradually grow at a pace that felt natural & organic. I’ve learned to balance more rest within entrepreneurship. I’ve also learned to make room for other opportunities that bring me closer to LYL and the mission behind it. My mission is to lead with love and inspire others to do the same. Love is constantly growing, transforming and sometimes, we have to find new ways to express it. LYL is that foundation for me and I will always explore ways to express it, even on the days where I feel less inspired, I keep returning back to love.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am the creator and owner of LYL BODY CARE, an earth-based body care line that provides handmade natural body care products with plant-based butters, oils, and herbs. I take pride in making products that make people feel good and also provide therapeutic healing. Each product has the ability to relieve, uplift, or inspire the person using it. LYL is mindful that the body, the mind, and the spirit are all connected in one, so I create products that allow you to nourish your body while also connecting to your mind, body & spirit.

I am also a writer, and I just published my first book entitled HER POET TREE. It’s a collection of love-inspired, nature-inspired poems expressing self-transformation & unfoldment. I wrote these poems during vulnerable times of my life where it was important I honored my feelings and truth. The intention is for people to be inspired by where they’ve been, where they are, and where they are going.

Wellness of the mind, body & spirit is my passion. It’s been important for me to explore that passion on all levels. Within that, I am also now in Yoga teacher training. I am excited to combine all three aspects into a full wellness experience.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
To enjoy the experience! Part of us creating and sharing our creativity with the world is a blessing. Every person is different and our individuality is what needs to be expressed and shared. I’d say to go at your own pace, honor your truth, and be authentic in everything that you do. By you walking in your authenticity, you are already inspiring others to do the same. Find something that you can build a giving a receiving relationship with. Something that you can put your all into but also pours into others. Something that reflects a love currency in this world because we need more people that care about the well-being of others and want to contribute.

As creatives, we can spend a lot of time putting pressure on ourselves to create and show up in the world. I would say it’s okay to create as you are called to, it’s okay to reflect and reconnect, it’s okay to take it one day at a time.
