Josh Nece relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 with the desire to begin anew. Our brand represents this commitment to renewal and self-expression. J o s h Skincare, Candles, and Incense creations represent this idea, and are the culmination of our desire to recreate the modern lifestyle brand as something new, that we call “Alternative Luxury”.

Portland is cold and windy. And I have been experiencing wind chapped skin on the face with very dry red patches from walking around in the elements so much. So if course my MO is to make something to combat this!! Now I have never enjoyed balms or salves I have tried because they often just leave me feeling super greasy and a heavy layer on my skin. Keeping true to the values behind our skincare of keeping our products pure, simple, and effective I made this balm rosehip oil, beeswax, zinc oxide, copaiba essential oil and geranium essential oil. Rosehip is very high in antioxidants, has healing qualities, and is very moisyerizing while being a dry oil. Beeswax also having healing qualities creates a barrier to protect the chapped skin without clogging pores. Zinc oxide is amazing for damaged skin providing more zinc. Copaiba essential oil is extemly anti imfamafory witch is important because when the skin is inflamed it is raised allowing it to dry out faster. Geranium is overall great for the skin and helps with redness. I'm pretty excited about this. . . . . . #joshatelier #artesanal #plantbased #witchcraft #handmade #alchemy #decor #modern #home #goodvibes #metaphysical #moonchild #luxuryhomes #vibratehigher #bohemian #essence #plantbasedskincare #lifeismagical #skincareroutine #selfcare #essentialoils #incense #witchyhome #greenskincare #madeinpdx #pdx #madeinportland #cosmetics #portland #portlandoregan

Portland. A story of product availability : a little more than a month into my move and receiving a good amount of queries about when product will be available again, especially candles being the holiday season... Unfortunately to properly make the product it will be a a bit until I can get it all going again due to proper space and resources. But hang tight, the time is being used to to take all the skills and knowledge of formulation and making and focusing on setting up a proper foundation to take this little maker's project into a conditioned manurfacting business focusing on getting product into retail spaces and growing. So this holiday season we will remain out of product but for the overall story this is a very exciting step towards a new beginning of progress and growth. .we do have some cleansing oil and serums left through @amazonhandmade. . . . . #joshatelier #artesanal #plantbased #witchcraft #handmade #alchemy #decor #modern #home #goodvibes #metaphysical #moonchild #luxuryhomes #vibratehigher #bohemian #essence #homedecor #lifeismagical #meditation #selfcare #essentialoils #incense #witchyhome #geometric #madeinpdx #pdx #madeinportland #cosmetics #portland #portlandoregan

3am. 35 degrees outside. So happy to be under an electric blanket after walking home 2 miles. What a great Sunday. Met up with my sister @jojonece for pho and spring rolls and then hit up some thrifts stores to find a jacket and jeans. Then for some grocery shopping and heading back to her place to make pizza and watch Sabrina. Phone dead at this point. After a couple episodes and it being about 10 I start to head home via bus when I vaguely remember seeing something about goth dancing happening. Assuming it must be taking place at Lovecraft (Portlands goth bar) I get off the bus early to see what's happening. Nothing. But music was good so I dance. Alone. But it's okay cuz the fog machines were on full blast so the place could of been full and you wouldn't know. Out of no where this very bubbly girl with full winter jacket and hood appears in front of me to ask... How's it going? She too thought there was an event. She investigates on her phone to find out it's at a place called star theater, which was literally a few blocks from where I just came from. She offers to get a lyft over. OK. Let's go. Arrive. Totally fun. Danced for 2 hours straight. Great release and great way to end a great Sunday. 2am. And funny... Busses don't run all night here in Portland and in case you don't know the city is is cut into quadrants divided by a river. I'm on the other side of the river from where I'm staying... Reminder. Phone dead. No bus. Have a moment if OHHH nooooo... Now what? Well walk home I guess. By this point I'm feeling all my muscles that were just hot from dancing cramping in the 35 degree weather, and I begun my trek. Crossing the bridge this late was a surreal and errue experience with the almost still black River underneath. Beautiful. Cold. So cold. On my little journey home I was surprised to pass almost No one else, not even cars driving. Finally make it home and straight under the blanket I go. Now the moral of this story is that I passed by 3 separate people out jogging. Happy Monday everyone! . . . . . #portlandoregon #portland #pdx #oregon #pnw #pacificnorthwest #positivevibes. #gothdancing #goth #gothgoth #gothclub #gothlife #postpunk #portlandia
