About Me

Welcome to Viki Rose Apothecary: Magical Self-care for an Enchanted Life!
Viki Rose Apothecary is a Victorian-inspired, witchy self-care blog to learn how to tap into the power of your mind for healing and personal transformation, through self-discovery, creativity, and self-care.

Welcome, my name is Daira (pronounced DIE-rah). I am a licensed massage therapist, aromatherapist, crystal healer, life/transformational coach, and fitness enthusiast. (I am also a technical analyst and have over 20 years experience in the Information Technology industry.) Some of my hobbies include helping others, photography, researching, and reading a variety of books.

The mind-body relationship is extremely important for one’s well-being. As a result, I combined all of these interests and created this website to share self-care tips and DIY projects to help you on your personal journey. Since I am always learning something new, I will share what I learn with you as I explore new topics.

My Credentials

  • Licensed Massage Therapist/Aromatherapist
  • Certified Crystal Healer
  • Professional Life Coach
  • Usui Ryoho Reiki Master

  • Former National NPC Bodybuilding Bikini Competitor
  • 1st Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo


Throughout this journey of self-discovery, I learned about myself – what I liked and disliked, my behaviors, and my daily attitude. In the past, I had low self-esteem and was in a dark place. After much self-introspection and hard work, I realized that the most important decision I made was to take care of myself. Now, I empower others and create magical items, such as intention candles, massage oils, body butters, and herbal baths and infusions, that promote holistic self-care, mental clarity, and balance. This witchy self-care blog is where I will share my ideas and I hope it helps you or inspires you in some way. Follow me on this magical journey and together we will create our own online community to:

Dream. Create. Share. Inspire.
