Meet the Owner & Creator of Wildflower Wellness Botanica
Yolanda Ayesha aka Empress Esh
I am Yolanda Ayesha Boykins affectionately known as Empress Esh. I serve as the owner & Healing Arts Curator of Wildflower Wellness Botanica. A Philadelphia native, I recently followed my maternal roots and relocated to the city of Atlanta, Georgia.
(My folks are from the little town of Sandersville, Ga, but I'm a city girl at heart :)
As a dedicated student of healing and spiritual arts, I have been cultivating my gifts as a ritual & wellness practitioner since 2011 after completing my first 200hr yoga teacher training program. My intention is to always be of service to the community by deepening the roots of my knowledge & practices through regular study with leaders and pioneers in the world of traditional, African spiritual healing arts. As a result, I am an Akomfowa, a certified Yoga Teacher, Reiki Healer, Intuitive Tarot Reader, Spiritual Herbalist, & a blossoming Postpartum Doula.
In my personal life, I carry a title that no one is ever prepared for. After losing my husband in 2021 to a fatal trucking accident, I found myself as a widow. I give thanks for the spiritual practices that have held me, and kept me grounded through such a heart wrenching experience. A proud Auntie, Foodie & true Creative; a lover of all performing arts. When I'm not gardening or crafting items for the botanica, you can find me at the theater, attending live music shows, taking a dance class, or checking out local art galleries.
Welcome to my Garden of Healing!
