Meet Patty Alvarez of Botanicia Michoacan (

Today we’d like to introduce you to Patty Alvarez.

Patty, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I love engaging with people and always wanted to have my own business, featuring natural esoteric and new age items. Opening Botanica Michoacán gave me the opportunity to blend it all together. I sell incense, oils, lucky charms, and special dressed candles as well as offer and specialize and offer tarot readings and spiritual cleansings.

A spiritual cleansing helps the person to release negative energy and sometimes entities that get attached to you. To me, negative energy is like slime that is all around us, and by doing the spiritual cleansings, it allows the person to feel much lighter, confident and helps them move forward in life and achieve their goals.

It’s fulfilling to know that people travel all around from the United States to come visit me for readings and spiritual cleanses or to make them a candle. People have had great results with my natural remedies and love my special dressed candles, which clients keep coming back. My business is has been the word of mouth since I started 15 years ago.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
For me, it’s been very smooth. I love what I do and what I sell. It comes very natural to me. The most important part of the business if that no matter rain or shine, I always show up to work and provide my clients with their needs. I learn from them a lot and they give me feedback about how my services worked out for them, which is very important for me and rewarding to know.
