Meet the Alchemists

Regina Di Silvestro

Owner / Chemist / Herbalist

 

Easily bored and always trying to reach for the stars, Regina began the company over 10 years ago making products for a friend's massage therapy business. From a young age she was always interested in "new age alchemy" wearing crystals to school, playing with Tarot cards and reading astrological charts. Her interest in herbal medicine initially began around the age of 15 when her grandmother gave her a bag of Chickweed. Three years later she stumbled upon an Herbal Shop that taught classes. It was there under the guidance of Herbalist Jan Marie Mayo where she was introduced to and began her love of herbal medicine. After attending college with various majors and minors of Zoology, Anthropology, Pharmacology and Toxicology she found herself working always within the areas of chemistry, particularly natural product and medicinal chemistry. Today at RD Alchemy she still wears many hats from product development, marketing, website development and more.  No matter how demanding the workload can get she is always glad to be where she is today and is thankful for all the support she has received over the years from her friends and family but most importantly from her customers and employees. As she continues to strive forward with optimism she does so for the love of medicine; its influence over individuals, society and for future advancements.
