There are one thousand words to describe our scent guru Jessica Gulati. Warm, beautiful, well traveled, compassionate, strong, amazing with children. But it is truly her selflessness which makes her the most beautiful. Another entrepreneur with her own empire, Lotus Love Beauty is a 5 year old company that has been featured in Oprah, Lucky Magazine, In Style etc. With the end result in mind of sustaining The Shanti Project, Jess works tirelessly with her team to hand produce her signature organic and all natural products. We are proud to feature Jess as our guest stylist today!
