Named after the Ceiba tree, one of the strongest medicines of the earth, CEIBA WOMEN is a company committed to teaching women the history, science, and culture of African and African Diasporic traditional medicine. For centuries, women have been the root of creation, communities, and families; keeping and carrying ancient traditions in our wombs, passing down powerful healing remedies through our teachings, and holding the universe together with our hearts. CEIBA WOMEN is where every woman can find the tools - including baths & medicines - and support - including spiritual readings, retreats, and classes  - to reclaim their livelihood, heal their bodies, elevate their careers, and deepen their spiritual power ten-fold. CEIBA WOMEN is the one-stop shop for everything to help women feel empowered, invincible, and inspired in their everyday lives.
