Despite marrying into what’s probably one of the most long-established and traditional families in the Western world, Meghan Markle has an alternative edge. When it comes to health and wellness, she’s always been vocal about her belief in doing things differently.
Not long after announcing her engagement in 2017, Meghan spoke of her love of homeopathy and other natural therapies, in a gorgeous interview with food blogger eye-swoon.
‘It may be very California girl of me to always have my tinctures of holistic remedies. I travel with all sorts of little homeopathic medicine because it’s what’s familiar with me.’
Meghan’s appreciation and investment in alternative healing is still strong, as evidenced in her recent visit to a high-end sound healing center and apothecary when she was just weeks away from giving birth. Accompanied by her husband Prince Harry, Meghan spent over two luxurious hours in Ilapothecary, situated in Kensington, South London.
The store, which is tucked away in an affluent area of central London, is described on its website as “an urban hideaway offering a selection of healing therapies, unique remedies and workshops to help you create solutions to issues you may be facing, relieve bodily symptoms and escape from stresses of urban living”.
It’s thought that Meghan may have opted for the popular 90-minute Mother to be Massage, “an intuitive, nurturing and bespoke massage experience to relieve the tension, swelling and tiredness which can come along with your body changing and adjusting during pregnancy. The treatment focuses on areas of your choosing; nourishing the skin with rich oils and balms to assist in prevention of stretch marks, releasing tension from the joints and muscles, rebalancing the nervous system and encouraging hormonal equilibrium”.
Well loved by other celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman, the Ilapothecary brand is known for creating its products and remedies with only the highest quality ingredients, infusing a ‘cutting-edge synergy of naturopathy, homeopathy, herbology, and phyto-actives’, as sited on its website.
But what makes these products even more fascinating is how apothecary founder Denise Leicester names them according to Numerology. The remedies she creates are carefully numbered from 0 to 101, according to how the energetic frequency carried in each number corresponds to each product. Each one is described on the website.
“A symbol of completeness, beauty and high ideals, number 6 is the number of Venus, The Goddess of Love. It is also known as the motherhood number, as it represents caring, loving, protecting and healing”.
“27 is about believing in yourself and listening to your intuition. It is self-affirming, intelligent and fortifying, representing compassion in a positive environment”.
“A magic number which is considered sacred, perfect and divine, as it represents the end of a cycle in the decimal system. 9 is the number of truth, it is about completion and fulfillment, as well as love, eternity and faith”.
“19 holds the energy of joy and happiness, and represents self-determination, independence and exploration. It is also a virtuous number that brings good news”.
“One of the master numbers, 33 is the Master Teacher offering divine help and guidance. It represents family, harmony, and self-expression”.
