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, especially for women.
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.
Alexandra Blaauw is a self taught multi dimensional artist and astrologer with a background in traditional and digital illustration, painting, and jewellery making. As a child with a vivid imagination, she was constantly looking for ways to physically manifest the visions from her mind, into something she could make with her hands. That passion has grown into new ways to create and share her expressions with others. Creating for 808 Co has been a very fulfilling experience, as it’s an opportunity to not only help others heal, but to feel beautiful during the healing process as well.
Aside from exploring various forms of creative expressions, Alexandra has always had a deep desire for innerstanding the world and people around her. Studying astrology as a passion for many years has been an amazing opportunity for her to learn more about herself, through analyzing the world and people around her. Now offering various birth chart reading services through 808 Co, Alexandra is thrilled to share her passion and what she has learned about astrology. She hopes to help others discover the cosmic tools and knowledge to be their best selves.
