Patricia was wonderful. The whole experience was inviting and peaceful. She walked us through the meanings of tea meditation, its history, and the items she uses in the meditation. The tea was delicious and the space we were in was beautiful both inside the home and the landscape outside. We enjoyed the quiet and serene location. Beautiful experience.

What a lovely sanctuary right there in town. I loved how far away I felt from the hustle and bustle and yet it was convenient to get to. I look forward to coming again.

It was a true pleasure to spend 4 magical days at Patricia's Desert Wellness Space. Every aspect of the experience was a pure delight. True elevated hospitality. I had a clear objective : recenter myself in order to plan ahead with a balanced mind. Patricia and her team helped me through this journey and made it a success. I came out of the experience transformed. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to recenter himself and enjoy the beauty of the Mojave Desert.

I recently stayed at the Mojave Desert Skin Shield wellness center after reading a brief article about the owner, Patricia, her skin care products and philosophy of wellness. So many positive comments and I was not disappointed. This serene, quiet, out of the way retreat embraced the beauty of the desert both in the indoor and outdoor spaces. Tucked inside a warm, weighted sleeping bag, I enjoyed outdoor sound baths and experienced a deep, deep relaxed meditative state. The Thai massage, also done outside, was therapeutic as well as relaxing. Patricia's facial was tailored for my skin using herbs and ingredients she mixes up and applies in the indoor space of a large vintage trailer. I've had numerous facials but this one was the best one I've ever had! I glowed afterward. And as if these body treatments weren't enough, the tea and cacao ceremonies were powerful, spiritual and offered a deep connection from within. I can't speak highly enough of my experience and the wonderful soulful host, Patricia, and the space she has created. I will surely return to this desert spiritual oasis.

I had the most beautiful and healing experience with Patricia. From the start with the out door infrared sleeping bag, delicious water from her well, oil pulling, and the rosewater eyewash, I knew I was in for an ultra experience. I experienced a symphony of birds married with nature all communing with the enormously fabulous sound bowls played by Patricia. I have not stopped telling friends, and family about the depth of this fantastic self care experience. Beyond grateful.

Patricia! Thank you so much for the beautiful experience this past Saturday. It was truly one of a kind, and deeply needed for the entire group. All of my friends were blown away by your work and one in particular who has done over 8+ sound journeys was left in awe and shared that it was the best she had ever done. Your generosity and hospitality made it that much more special for all of us, and I cannot thank you enough!

Love love love!!! When you use MDSS products you will want to upgrade your whole skincare routine! You can feel the thoughtful detail and careful crafting that was poured into each product using all natural ingredients. I don’t want to use anything else! MDSS has created a real change in the way I take care of my skin and it’s overflowing into the way I live my life. If we all lived with this kind of intention, we really could change our world.

A friend gifted me your wonderful hand salve. The quality of the product is very pure and the scent is truly evocative of the desert. I love it beyond. I was so impressed, I asked Patricia if she could put together a custom lotion for my sister who has recently been struggling with new and serious psoriasis condition and she cannot tolerate much on her sensitive skin. Patricia not only created a special item but put together a wonderful basket. My sister loves all the products and they have been very soothing to her

I had a most fantastic treatment with you that I'm happy to write about!! It was such a moving experience, "facial" doesn't come close to capturing it. It was beyond!

Each and every experience with the beloved Mojave Desert Skin Shield has multidimensionally impacted my spirit and soul. With each treatment, each product and offering, I have grown closer and closer to my core. In treatments over the years, I have experienced everything from emotional release, hormonal balance, ancestral healing, traveling to past lifetimes, internally traveling through my subtle bodies.. and each time I met myself exactly where I was supposed to be. After each session with Mojave Desert Skin Shield, I would always leave with the most beautiful products to maintain my alignment with my path to self mastery. Each product was so divine. It reminded me of my sovereignty. I felt held by the herbal allies, nature's gifts and the incredible formulation of each product. It went beyond a simple ritual, using Mojave Desert Skin Shield was the ultimate act of self compassion each time I went to explore my physical body's needs. Over the years, the teachings of each session and the lessons I have learned from using Mojave Desert Skin Shield products have offered me beams of light and daily moments of celebration and nourishment. Most importantly, Mojave Desert Skin Shield products remind me that the light always prevails

My experience with you was transformative; I entered my appointment thinking I needed great faced with not only the beauty but also the darkness. Your touch anchored me to the physical and I rode your subtle hums deeper within myself. I felt an internal tug of war between my fears and anxieties and my greater belief in being safe and secure in where I was. You were so intrinsically connected to what I needed in those moments and I truly treasure that session out in the desert.

I spent the afternoon receiving deeply healing soul nourishment at Patti's oasis. My facial took me to another realm, soaking in the outdoor tub with sweep desert views relaxed me deeply and hearing the sound bowls let me drop down and in to a deeper part of myself. Patti is magic and her work is transformative. Also, I love patti's products bc I know they are made with deep intention and love. In a world of a thousand face oils, her products standout for their efficacy and integrity. I looooove the desert nectar serum and the pulling oil.

I purchased a few of your products and really love them. The smell is intoxicating, which is a great way to first experience them. My favorite is the Nourishing Oil. It is so lush and comforting at the same time. And I use the Calming Mask on a weekly basis. It is a ritual for me. Your products are really special and they transport me to the desert - one of my favorite places - every single time I use them.

Desert Skin Shields Nursing Oil is a daily essential for me. Since living in the desert nothing ever seemed to absorb deep enough to give me true moisture for my face. Until I was introduced to this product! Not only does it sink deep into my skin but leaves it feeling silky and glowing all day. What I love about it is l can not only use it for my skin but I have also found to love it as a hair oil as well. It smells great and puts moisture into my hair without leaving it greasy like many other hair oils do. This product is truly everything!

Thank you for your follow up- I appreciate it! The products did indeed arrive safely and they have been great additions to my skincare routine. My skin is definitely getting healthier and more hydrated as I continue to use them.

I have become very fond of the Mojave Desert Skin Shield products. I suffer from a skin disease (Darier's disease) that has no cure. One can only find relief with different creams or prescriptions.My face is reddened, super sensitive, dry, and most products seem to sit on top of my skin. I am using the Protective mist, Element toner, Desert Nectar serum and the Replenishing cream. I also use the Element Cream cleanser and the Earth Minerals Honey mask. My skin is really happy and soothed with these products. I also like that the products are handmade and super fresh.

★★★★★

Nourishing oil delivers. The perfect name for this oil would surely be nourishing oil because that is exactly what it does. Every time I use it I can feel my skin letting out a big sigh of relief. Truly one of my favorite oils for daily use as it’s not too heavy. Feels clean, and leaves my skin feeling smoother and happier than before. I recommend it to everyone.

Sarah

★★★★★

Nourishing oil. Nourishing! That’s exactly how it feels when I go to use my Skin Shield oil. I usually apply mine in the evening on clean skin, and I get a sense of luxury and self-love when I pour a little into my palm. The moment I take in the holistic aroma it deepens my breath, and I immediately feel more grounded. The oil absorbs deeply into my skin, giving me a natural glowing appearance that I love. I can’t live without it. I recommend it to all my sisters and friends!

I discovered Patricia’s work through my friends and I am so glad I did! We booked a private Sound Bath with her, not only is the setting breathtakingly beautiful but it is clear that Patricia is spiritually aligned with both the setting and the work she is doing. The whole ceremony was incredible and we walked away knowing we had been part of something very special. I would recommend booking right away!!
