We are often asked, “How can using Alywillow products have such an incredible effect on the body?” Well, many studies show the body is often more receptive to natural chemicals than synthetic ones, and Alywillow products are literally created from ONLY plants and minerals (with natural chemicals), and nothing else, ever! Even our scents, colors, and preservatives are derived from plants and minerals. When you wash and moisturize with Alywillow products, your body absorbs many benefits through your skin. These natural chemicals are absorbed through your skin and help your body function better. It has so much to do with the communication system of your body (your nervous system) and the wisdom of Alywillow products.
Your Body’s Communication
You see, your nervous system is the primary internal communication system of your body, and it uses electrical and chemical changes to help all the parts of the body communicate. Your skin is permeable and when using Alywillow products, your body (and nervous system) is fed nutrients which help strengthen the functions of your body. Why is this important? When your nervous and circulatory systems are healthy, they are better equipped to sense and interpret changes of the body so they can relay the appropriate instructions to your organs and tissues in response. This can help you calm down from stress more easily, sleep peacefully and feel more refreshed, excrete waste products with ease, regenerate your cells and body tissue better, sharper focus leading to more productivity, and easily maintain a better state of health. If you want to feel better in life, just start washing and moisturizing with Alywillow products. In fact, our WARRIOR or RIVERFLOW product lines are specifically designed to support the health of your nervous system.
The Wisdom of Alywillow
Chemical analysis of a plant shows exactly which natural chemicals it contains and when we develop Alywillow products, we pay special attention to each plant’s chemical structure, to make sure everything is considered. For instance...
- If you have acne, using our LEMON LAUGHS or WILDWOOD cleansers may easily clear it up. However, if your acne is infected (like cystic), we need the WARRIOR or SAGEROW cleansers to fight the bacteria. Adding FORTIFY or GOAWAY Medicinal Plant Serums, will help fight even more resistant types of bacteria.
- SWEET MAGIC is a formula we add to some of our cleansers and moisturizers and when absorbed, these plants can help increase the happy hormone production in your body. This can naturally reduce stress and anxiety with great efficiency.
- RIVERFLOW is a formula we developed from plants that helps restore a proper flow of the rivers of the body (circulation & nervous system). These products are excellent for reducing pain, swelling, bruising, and helping repair tissue damage.
This is one of the reasons why some of our products are safe for pregnant women and others are not. Some of our products are restorative (to repair damage), preventative (to protect you on a cellular level), and destroyers (to fight the MRSA, acne, fungal, bacterial, and viral issues). In addition, some of our products are more concentrated than others. They are non-toxic, cruelty-free, and there are a plethora of vegan options.
“After using our favorite Alywillow products... in our shower and as moisturizers, my husband and I feel better. Hard to describe BETTER! We love BETTER. Total new feeling for us!!!” ~ T. Florence, Raleigh, NC
Our Founder, Aly of Alywillow
It all began with a realization that our skin is more permeable than we were led to believe. In the early 1990's our founder, Aliya Trinity (aka. Aly) realized that the warm water during bathing was opening her pores to the ingredients of every product. She was disappointed with all the synthetic ingredients found in even the most basic things and chose to follow in the footsteps of her Native American ancestors constantly claiming, “If our ancestors lived without synthetic chemicals, so can we”.
Many said (and still say) that it cannot be done and yet, through careful consideration and always respecting the land and the people, she has found natural solutions for so many issues. It was through recognizing this doorway into our bodies that she started a lifelong journey of discovery into the effects of plants on the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies.
- When a bone in her back broke into 3 pieces, she developed a pain reliever, MINTY RELIEF, to help reduce the chronic inflammation and pain. It's now available in 6 different products.
- Her fierce determination to save her young son from MRSA resulted in the GOAWAY MEDICINAL SERUM.
- One week in the of Spring 2013, several tribal members asked for help with their itchy skin problems and she developed WILDWOOD - which successfully fights eczema, fungi, dermatitis and almost all itchy skin problems, except psoriasis.
- When a friend had skin cancer she developed the BALANCE TONER which helped reduce the problem and the BALANCE TONER turned out to be a powerful anti-aging toner - reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving the look and feel of facial skin.
- When she lived on Topsail Island, it was common to see people with sunburn and that's when she developed GYPSYSUN to repair the skin and reduce the burn.
- Then, a family member developed severe psoriasis and she spent the summer of 2020 finding the right plants to clear it completely and developed the STARBRIGHT product line.

Additionally, we offer natural options for pain & swelling, facial blemishes, shingles, herpes, chicken pox, lines and wrinkles, psoriasis, eczema, fungal skin issues, stress relief, and so much more.
