About Jessica Allan

Image description

Most commonly known as Jess, I grew up in Elermore Vale, a suburb of Newcastle, NSW. I am a qualified Herbalist and Bowen Therapist and started SkinDoona in 2008, as i approached the final stages of my herbal medicine course with the Hunter Academy of Complimentary Health.


I have a passion for nature and healing, believing that nature's inherent wisdom contains the most unique unfolding, something that cannot be replicated or forced, but embraced, respected and treasured. 


It felt like a natural extension of my interest in the natural world, to pursue herbal medicine and be inspired by the amazing healing properties of plants. One of my favourite things to do is wild craft "weeds" - one persons's trash is another's treasure. I love chopping herbs and pushing them into a jar, filling the house with the raw, fresh smells of nature. This love extends today into cream making. Pouring liquid extracts of herbs into my creams and knowing each and every one will carry nature and the healing properties of plants out into the world to help somebody. 


I now live in Tighes Hill with my family, and have recently had my first baby, who I absolutely love and adore. After a few months off, we are back into it again, bringing you all your favourite products.
