TERRA

The word Terra means "Earth" and is the root of Terrazas, which translates to "of the Earth".

STOMA

Stomata are the tiny, mouth-like openings on the surface of plants that take in carbon dioxide & emit oxygen.

(That means they "breathe" in as we breathe out, and vice versa.)

Terra Stoma is a small, heartfelt business based in Austin, TX. Owned & operated by herbalist, Taylor Terrazas.

It is an invitation or opening, through which we have the ability to connect more deeply with ourselves and with the Earth.

RADICAL SELF-ACCEPTANCE

+

reclamation OF BEAUTY

Growing up, I often felt excluded from the primary beauty narrative.

I was a weirdo, a late bloomer, & deeply self-conscious of my body hair. Being mixed-race Latina also brought its own set of unique identity challenges.

In my heart, I worried about whether I'd ever be able to truly love and accept myself as I am. Yet, it seemed unfair that I should feel shame and rejection over things I didn't choose & couldn't truly change. 

At what point did my body become a thing on display, there to please others? And at what cost to myself?

I spent years peeling back layers of imposed beauty expectations, and what I got in return was a complete transformation of awareness & Reclamation of Self.

-

Radical self-acceptance means choosing to love ourselves, despite the messaging that tells us we aren't worthy of it. Reclamation of beauty means shifting the narrative in favor of authenticity, as well as challenging our own thoughts and perceptions around what beauty is.

Self-love is not a destination or an event;

it's a practice.
