Living in Astoria for 42 years, Lisa is a devoted mother of two boys. She works as a career advisor and job readiness instructor by day and devotes the rest of her time to bringing healthy skincare options to people via her website, local craft markets here in Astoria and throughout the five boroughs.

Miz Magickal came about after embarking on a vegan diet and caring for her younger son’s eczema. She decided to create her own line of all-natural, chemical-free products. The vibe in Lisa’s kitchen, where everything is made, is one of peace and serenity. When crafting her products she always has sage burning, a goddess statue and a white candle lit.

Lisa came up with the name for her skincare line Miz Magickal, since she follows a magickal path: positive intentions, revering nature and strongly believing you manifest all that you put your mind to. Magickal is spelled the way it is to differentiate the occult from magic tricks, and magick as coined by Aleister Crowley, the English occultist, ceremonial magician and poet. They are very different concepts. Lisa also playfully has referred to herself as being pretty “magickal” when people are happy about something she’s helped them with. “I wanted practical, yet natural, mindful products that harm no animals or people in its creation or use. There’s too much suffering and chemicals in food and products as it is. I also wanted better for my family, others and myself.”

A top seller is her Sweet Orange & Vanilla Whipped Body Butter and Awaken Coffee Lip Balm, which is infused with real coffee.

Looking toward the future, Lisa is working on natural deodorants and beard balms, as well as adding a more premium line to Miz Magickal.
