Folade (fo-lah-day) is my birth name. Yoruba for crowned, or This child is returning honor to the family. I am a mother of two teens who bring a new meaning to "teenager." They are easy to mother, they are funny and thoughtful. It was their births that led me to Reiki, to pack something additional for their care and healing in the Momma basket. I would later open to being who I am beyond my family and offer these services to you.
Adé Wellness | Infusion was born in 2021, named by my sister. Adé - half of my name- means "crowned" in the Yoruba language. In constant gratitude of nature and plant essence, I stay birthing new products, I stay pregnant with ideas, recipes and exploration. It is my honor to share products that nurture the skin, senses and the overall emotional, physical and mental bodies.
It was my grandmother who passed down the Maker and the Medium genes. It was her who saw I was holding the inner voice heirloom she allowed me to witness, five, ten, fifteen years old. We'd talk about apparition, how to communicate with our Ancestors, how to hold them in a space and listen. I had an affinity for my Ancestors as early as I could speak. My bedtime stories were their life stories. Gram was a powerful Story Teller, Root Woman and Home Maker. With three gardens, and an orchard bounty, she made everything from scratch and from the ground. Her basement infusions stocked deeply in mason jars kept the winters warm.
Along the way, I have developed experience and practice in crystals, Ayurvedic healing therapy, Aura Photography and translation, Akashic Records, and a lifelong study of apothecary exploration and lifestyle, Before my son's birth, I created handmade body products that were sold in stores in Seattle, Hawaii, Chicago and Vancouver British Columbia. I've returned to the curation of handmade wellness products with my Infusion offerings.
