Bishop Botanicals is a plant-based & certified cruelty-free botanical beauty brand that will help nourish, revitalize and transform your skin, hair, body & soul with uncomplicated ingredients acquired from nature. Crafted in small batches in the heart of downtown Collingwood & created by mother & daughter. Nicole Bishop is a graduate of Concordia University in Montreal with a Fine Arts Degree where she majored in Art History. As a tarot reader, body art artist & one half of Bishop Botanicals, she has a passion for art, skincare & all things mystical. Her mission is to give people the tools & support they need to find guidance & clarity as they follow their true path & feel good while doing it.
Nicole is known for her intuitive henna creations & does not refer to a book of designs. Her style involves working with the desired type of illustration a person requests (if any) & then her own interpretation of it based on the person's energies. If you have something specific you would like created please bring an image to your appointment or have a reference ready. Past creations to get a sense of her style can be found on the Bishop Botanicals Instagram page or her Nicole Bishop's account.
