Hi, my name is Militza. That’s me leading a skincare workshop, it was one of my favorites!
I’m the writer and teacher behind Little Green Dot—an educational space dedicated to natural skincare. I’m so glad you are here.
To tell you more about me, I’ll tell you that I am passionate about skin. Sounds funny, but it’s such an incredible organ! I’m a trained herbalist specializing in the skin, certified aromatherapist for topical application of herbs, skincare formulator, and natural skincare educator.
And my mission is to teach the art and skill of using botanical skincare as a tool for skin health and total wellness.
If you feel the call to learn about the skin and skincare – whether it’s for yourself, your family or your community – I’m thrilled to be your teacher.
I didn’t always have a positive relationship with skincare… until I got in the kitchen, and started making it.
I started creating natural skincare recipes in 2010. Back then I was motivated to make healthy changes – but there were only a handful of natural skincare brands available where I lived… and I couldn’t afford to buy any of them!
So I started learning how to make them. I would look at a product, read the ingredients list and try to “reverse engineer” my own recipe.
When my husband I first got married, we couldn’t afford to eat at restaurants. That’s when I learned how to cook. So I approached skincare the same, like I was learning how to cook again…
And I was starting from scratch! I couldn’t create anything complicated that required special equipment. I couldn’t use ingredients that I didn’t understand. And I couldn’t use “specialty” ingredients that I couldn’t find in my local supermarket.
But all of those “limitations”… developed my passion and my unique perspective on skincare.
I learned how to make skincare from real, whole food ingredients – and it made my skin healthy like nothing I had ever used before. More than that, I could feel the difference in the way these natural ingredients nourished me deeply, from the outside in.
In my kitchen, I figured out how to make natural skincare that was simple, that felt incredible and worked.
The obvious thought may have been to create my own line of products. There was definitely a gap in the market for what I offered. But I knew that the gap I needed to fill – was education.
So I started teaching. And over the years I’ve run dozens of workshops teaching people how to make their own skincare.
Groups of mamas come to learn how to care for their babies. People come to learn how to heal their eczema and acne. And its never about imperfections – its about nourishment and food and wellness.
Many of my students are so inspired by their own results and this simple but transformative idea of “nourishing the skin” – that they’ve gone on to create their own line of skincare and teach their own workshop too!
Each and every day, I am constantly learning more and sharing the joy of herbs and natural skincare. It feels so good to be doing this work – and sharing it with you too.
