Conversations with Alexandra Rouzier

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexandra Rouzier.

Hi Alexandra, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Hey, y’all! Your friendly backyard Herbalist here! Navire Apothecary hasn’t always been about herbalism and using natural products. At first, I started making jewelry as a hobby in college.

I would travel frequently and gather inspiration through the places I would visit like Egypt, India, and Morocco. While making jewelry is still an aspect of what we do, our main goal is to create all-natural & sustainable products that are good for the earth and good for you!

Being diagnosed with Epilepsy at age 11, I had to cut things out that were not healthy at a young age. At that age, I had no idea what “living a healthy lifestyle” meant! Now that I’m older, I realize how important using all-natural soaps, skincare, and even candles with little to no scent are.

Of course, getting some sleep and eating right is a big part of this as well! You will always hear me say this…”Remember to drink some water!”

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Anything that comes from passion will not be a smooth road.

Thinking back to my college days, I never thought I would be where I am now. I am doing almost 2 markets monthly and have a new website! One of my main challenges is building out this super cool part of my small business life while having a full-time job.

I work in the non-profit space and love what I do, but I wish I could dedicate more time to creating instead of only on Saturdays & Sundays.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
First off, what does Navire mean? Navire /na.viʁ/ means ship or vessel in French. I believe that we are all temporary vessels here on this earth, so why not take care of it and have a little fun?

I want you to treat your body, mind, and soul. Decorate your body with our handmade jewelry that inspires wanderlust, calm your mind with the light of our candles, and treat your soul with our artisan soaps and body care.

We specialize in all-natural & sustainable herbal body care. Our line is coming out slowly, but with all-natural ingredients come the long hours of testing. Keep an eye out for new items coming out every few months!

We love our products and we’re confident you will love them too!

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
A lot of things make me happy!

Being in mother nature, riding my bike, getting in the car, and going for a ride! Since moving to Utah from Hawaii 5 years ago and living in my car for two months traveling and exploring the USA, I have known true happiness when I have had nothing.

I am forever chasing those moments in the wilderness and the feeling of absolute freedom. Above all else, time in nature is where I find inspiration, creativity, and true happiness.
