Hi! My name is Sherry Molling the owner and founder of Botanicals by the Sea. Many years ago as a single mother I decided to try my hand at jams and jelly making.
It was a great girlfriend gift. That led to more experimenting and eventually to gardening. I discovered a love for herbs and of their natural qualities for cooking, aromatherapy, and healing. I enjoyed the use of natural herbs, fruits, and products beyond the normal uses. I discovered there were other alternatives than a pill or an expensive ointment. As the years went by my skin conditions became a matter of concern. As my problems were not fixed by various doctors I felt it was time to try my hand at creating some of my own natural remedies. As that took off it was time to add more pampering products to my area of expertise. I need to thank my friends and family for all of the testing and experimenting. They always were willing to give something a try no matter how bad it looked or smelled. I do not test on animals only girlfriends, I like to joke.
As my knowledge increased so did my passion for learning. I researched and began making products that have made a difference to many of you out there. I am grateful for the help of some friends and their expertise in various fields. I would not be here today without them. So, it was time to branch out and share my balms, remedies, and pampering products. My son Taj has been there through thick and thin and only gave a small gasp when I said we were going to be in our very first event. The Carlsbad Street Fair of 2010. A guarantee of over 100,000 people. We had never even set up a booth or raised a canopy! Talk about a learning curve. Thanks to my friends and family that day was a success. We have made many changes and are continually growing, expanding, learning, creating, and evolving.
My company would not be here today without the support of Ronnie Walker, my daughter Angie, my sister Wendy, best friends Allison and Janene and many more. Cathleen has been a vital part with her advice and pushing to always go to the next level. Her help in 2013 has taken my company so far. A special thanks once again to my son Taj. I know its been hard and I have pushed the envelope, but he has been a tremendous help. A thank you to all of you out there supporting my small business from the beginning and through all of the growth. You keep coming to me with ideas and have pushed me to create new products even when I keep thinking that's enough. In July of 2013 I have added 5 new products. Keep the ideas coming and keep pushing me!
Cheers! And thanks for reading!
Meet Ingrid Saenger
Founder of Choose Well Coaching
Ingrid was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and came to the states over 30 years ago where she discovered this amazing thing called "fast food". The idea that you could eat, drink, and be merry, all without leaving your car was a foreign concept, but she loved it. It wasn't until she reached her top weight at 203 pounds that she realized the convenience of drive-thru's, were not convenient for her health. At age 30 she hired a trainer and began a journey that lead to a 70 pound weight loss, and a passion for helping people achieve the highest version of themselves. Ingrid prides herself on helping people transform their lives by holding them accountable and being there for them every step of the way.
Cryo Shield is a San Diego cryotherapy company and the passion project of professional MLB pitcher, James Shields. A huge proponent and beneficiary of whole body cryotherapy treatment, James understands first-hand the difference cryotherapy can make in recovery, athletic performance and overall well-being. In 2015, James and team opened Cryo Shield Therapy in Del Mar in hopes of making this technology available to all San Diegans.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) treatments is a cutting-edge 3-minute treatment using liquid nitrogen vapor to help you heal. It’s been found to be more effective and efficient than an ice bath and offers benefits that traditional cold therapies cannot. This anti-inflammatory treatment exposes patients to temperatures between -190 and -256 degrees Fahrenheit for a short duration of time—typically 2 – 3 minutes. In those few minutes a patient’s blood vessels will rapidly constrict and skin temperatures will drop while the core body temperature remains unchanged. The shock to one’s system releases endorphins allowing for an immediate mood-boosting pick-me-up. Once the session is over, blood vessels begin to dilate, blood circulation is vastly improved and oxygen is distributed throughout the entire body. Cryotherapy’s ability to reduce inflammation makes it a popular treatment for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and often arthritis sufferers.
Whole body cryotherapy patients come to Cryo Shield for a range of reasons, and it’s certainly not limited to athletic recovery. In fact, many people suffering from debilitating disorders have found their relief with regular cold therapy treatments. Positive results with WBC have occurred when applied to:
Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases
Depressive, anxiety and sleep disorders

Take back control
of your life.
I would describe what led me to where I am today as a reinvention. I believe I re-invented myself. The way I had been living was hardly “living.” I would get up each day unenthusiastically. I woke up tired and worn out, even before I got out of bed. My relationship with my then husband was non-existent. We barely looked at each other, let alone touched each other. My whole life seemed to be wrapped up in my kids, and I was okay with that. At least then, I could pretend that I didn’t matter because I allowed myself to believe that they were my entire world. The worst part was I couldn’t tell anyone because to the outside world, it looked like I had it ALL! But, my life had no PASSION!

My life changed at 25 …After an accident that left me with a new definition of normal I felt like a passenger in my life more then the person actually living it.
Following this accident the doctors basically told me to get use to my new normal and filling out my permanent disability paperwork……I couldn’t even imagine my life like this…
-permanently disabled? What about my dreams? I wanted to have a family, be able to travel the world, all of those would be stolen from me.
-If I listened to them my life as I knew it was over.
So I did what anyone would do at that point, I went home and cried…a lot!!! I still tear up thinking about how hard this was was for me. But the next day is what made all the difference in my life, I decided to try my own way, a road less traveled.
I began working with an amazing acupuncturist. I saw her 2-3 days a week to simply help support my body. Then I had a friend ask me to come to her first yoga class, at first I laughed at her and said no way! I can’t even move! But she didn’t give up, she kept asking, so I finally agreed. I am so happy I went to her class. It was so good for my mind and body. I felt the best I had felt in a long time for the hours following that class. It was like a natural high, I was hooked! Yoga became part of my everyday life. I even became a yoga instructor!!!
I continued working with my acupuncturist regularly and between yoga and acupuncture I felt like I was managing pretty well. I had gone back to work at this point and felt like I had established my new normal.
Then one day my acupuncturist told me she wanted me to meet another one of her clients who used essential oils. I had full trust in my acupuncturist so I said why not. I met with this lady over coffee. I remember thinking, what did I say yes to, she is crazy, she really thinks essential oils could help me? Something in my gut was telling me to go for it! Saying take a chance, what’s the worst thing that could happen, it doesn’t help?
So that is where I started my essential oil journey! I am so happy I went with my gut and gave it try. Within two short weeks of using deep blue rub topically and Frankincense internally I felt like my body was finally getting the support it needed. Just a few short weeks later I began taking Lifelong Vitality. That was it! For the first time in as long as I can remember I began to feel like myself again. My body truly had the support it needed. I continued to feel better each day. I am so grateful for these essential oils and the quality they have added to my life. I had truly made my own new reailty.
– I regained my clarity of mind.
– Not only was I not disabled but I found a carrer I was extremely passionate about. It fulfilled me in so many ways. I was empowering myself and all of those around me to live a happier, healthier lifestyle
– My future has never looked so bright. My husband and me have exciting plans with no limit on happiness.
Let my story, my experience be an example to you in a few ways,
* It doesn’t matter how devastating your journey has been, you can recover and come back better then ever
*You and only you can make the choose to pursue the life you want.
* The life you want is worth the fight, it may not be easy but it will be worth it.
* Whole living and wellness isn’t only about one area of your life. It is about all areas of your life. This can seem overwhelming but I am here to to help you.
* Listen to your gut, your intuition, your heart. Follow it. It knows what you need.

StretchLab. The most remarkably simple thing you can do to feel better.
When you think of stretching, you think of loosening up after a workout, making sure your muscles don’t stay tight. But if you ask anyone who’s ever come into StretchLab, they will tell you that stretching is about so much more than simply feeling better, or having a wider range of motion. Stretching is about reclaiming your freedom. The freedom to move as you want, to be active and engaged in the life you see yourself having, with no pain and no risk of injury.
All of this happens in an open, friendly and communal space, a space filled with energy, with passion and with trust. You can ask anyone who has come into StretchLab and you’ll get the same simple answer: If you come into StretchLab on a regular basis, you will feel better. It’s that simple.
