Welcome to Six of Diamonds! My name is Jyoti, a Sanksrit word from India, meaning Inner Light. I grew up in a very holistic, spiritually and heart-centered hippie chic home.
I received crystals from the tooth fairy, I was advised on my sun, rising and moon astrology sign and received my 1st degree in Reiki (energy healing) by the time I was 5. Jesus and Buddha were explained to me as best friends who had the same message of love that they spread throughout different parts of the world.
Although my mother embodied this bohemian spirit, she was incredibly luxe when it came to beauty and lifestyle. She loved decorating our house with elegant Indian fabrics, we always had salon hair care products and we made our own sugar scrubs. We had mani/pedis, mini facials and retreats to meditate in Mt. Shasta.
It was important to my mom that she taught me how to nurture my body and take care of my soul. Inner and outer beauty were synonymous and equally important. “The Secret” and the power of self-improvement was the pinnacle of how I was raised!
My mom recognized the importance of both the material and spiritual world and most importantly, that I never let either of them define me. But that I recognized that the combination and harmony of these worlds was authentic. I am so grateful for this upbringing. I have been taught a wealth of spiritual tools that enabled me to better handle life’s up’s and down’s and provided a trust in the universe.
This lifestyle instilled a unique perspective to my growing obsession with beauty products. Dubbing myself a product junkie, from an early age I was taught to read the ingredients and seek out clean roducts. In doing so, I realized there was a huge gap in this market. The products that were clean and contained natural ingredients were just plain uninspiring. And that’s when the inspiration for Six of Diamonds was born.
I wanted products for everyday use, that used the finest natural and safest ingredients, but were effective, luxe, modern and portrayed prestige elegance. Not only through the products themselves, but through the lifestyle blending that was the foundation of my childhood. Six of Diamonds is not just a beauty brand, it’s a way of life.
Today, I am blissfully, happily married to my husband Mike and we live in sunny Redondo Beach. We met in a February and we were married that September, a true love story. He keeps me on my toes, constantly surprises me with his thoughtfulness, loyalty, spontaneity, affection and down right goodness! He is my rock and my best friend. We’ve traveled the world together, he is a true partner and the love of my life. My mom continues to inspire me with her strength and enlightened progressive way of thinking. I am grateful for my fathers advice to “Follow Your Bliss”. I have always felt supported to live my dreams.
I hope that you take the time to luxuriate and nurture yourself as I do, and that you love Six of Diamonds just as much as I do! Heres to being happy, healthy and gorgeous inside and out.
