Shiva Rose is the creator of the Holistic Lifestyle Site The Local Rose. After overcoming life threatening auto-immune conditions, Shiva began to walk the path of holistic living. The Local Rose was born out of a desire to celebrate authentic, healthy living without sacrificing taste and glamour. Shiva created a non-toxic, skin care line that brings luminosity and beauty to the skin and soul while supporting the environment. She lives in the Santa Monica Mountains with her daughters, honey bees, chickens, shepherd and cat. They raise most of their own food and try to live in harmony with mama earth.
