Our Story so far…

It’s impossible to journey through this life without experiencing damage. And, because of that, we seek to escape and numb – with work, food, alcohol/drugs, relationships, the internet and more.

Therefore, we move away from Spirit and become lost in a repeating cycle of destructive behavior.

EKKA is the world’s first ritual based self-care recovery subscription box. Ekka was founded in 2016 by Yvette Jacquez and Nuria Reed.

We envisioned a better holistic wellness system – one that went deeper, built community and created sustainable change.

At Ekka, we work with experts in the broad fields of recovery and wellness practitioners, and creatives to be sure we send you a different self-care box every month. We each bring to the table a lifetime of longing, loss, and love.

We continue to embrace recovery by creating rituals. With this intention we hope to find peace and balance in this strange and beautiful world we live in.

At EKKA, we want to make the most of this life and keep our faces turned to the sun.

Just like you, reading this, wherever you are.
