Sandra-Lee has always been the experimental type - mixing this and sprinkling that to create something new. Through the years, she began dabbling in essential oils and aromatherapy, initially to help with managing stress and anxiety. Crystals and crystal healing has been an innate journey due to her mother's influence.
In earlier years, Sandra-Lee decided to refuse purchasing products made with ingredients she could not pronounce, which sparked a passion to make her own skincare. With a natural ability to develop products, her primary focus became healing items which are extremely beneficial especially when combined with crystals. She is constantly formulating new ways to balance the mind, body and spirit through holistic wellness.
Sandra-Lee is a spiritual person although she doesn't identify with any specific religion. The passion to share her knowledge of the metaphysical by making it modern and relatable, blended with her knack for alchemy, is what led to the birth of 808 Co.
