Brandie and Patricia met at a business meeting and Tricia introduced Brandie to Green Mandarin essential oil. It was love at first whiff.


When Brandie discovered Patricia was not only a certified aromatherapist but also a formulator she recognized their creative kinship and asked her to help formulate the Be Relieved roll on. A beautiful partnership was formed.


Next they worked together to create Be Hydrate Leave in Conditioner and Be Lola Deep conditioner (named for Brandie's mom Lola).


Brandie moved into her new salon space in Old Town Temecula she created a space for Tricia to formulate on site and an innovative space and concept was formed.


Together they've created Be Curlicious leave in conditioner, Be Curlightful Curl Custard, Be Free Mousse, Be Bold Gel, and many other amazing, handcrafted hair products.


In addition to hair care products Tricia also formulates bath and body products, teaches classes, and offers therapeutic aromatherapy consultations and products as well as handcrafted CBD products. This partnership is how Be Kekoa Apothecary got its start.

Brandie is expanding this space to include other creatives and to support community and diversity. It is truly a beautiful endeavor.

We invite you to join us -- as creatives, as supporters of community, diversity, and wellness. We are bold, fierce, creative, and seek to create products and services to support the mind, body, and soul and to create a space that embraces diversity and community. ​

 *Went to a workshop yesterday where I learned so much about the world of essential oils from Patricia Ambroziak. She was so informative about the benefits that EO can give us. Hands down the best resource for this.  Vanessa I. Temecula, CA

*The body butter we made helped my dad's dry, irritated, skin better than the medicine he was given. He loved it. After a few weeks his skin was back to normal.  Jen J., Temecula, CA

*This stuff (muscle soothing body butter blend) saved Josh's weekend. Thanks girl! Robin F. Murrieta, CA

* A 100/100 on the the ginger bath fizz it's the bomb!!! Kym. B. Temecula, CA

* Patricia was not only extremely nice, but really took the time to help me customize oils for my massage business. She is knowledgeable and has a real gift for what she does. I used one of her amazing bath bombs for the first time last night and fell in love! Thank you Tricia for helping me add aromatherapy to my business. Chante G. Riverside, CA

* I am thrilled to have experienced the one of a kind service from Tricia. My daughter spent several days in the hospital with a MRSA wound on her knee (scary). Tricia, who I recently was aquatinted with from my son's baseball team heard about my daughter's situation. She asked openly and kindly about what my daughter's healing regiment was. Long story short, we weren't doing enough as the MRSA on her knee kept coming back around the same location. Step-by-step Tricia's showed me how to fight this using aromatherapy. With Tricia's exceptional advice and her step-by-step instructions we have had ZERO issues of any kind and the MRSA has not returned! Thank you Tricia, you're a life saver! **
