A story of freakishness
Zodiac Freak is a cosmic wonderland of discovery and exploration, where we combine self-care with natural ingredients and integrate it with astrology. Our wellness line encourages healing and well being for the mind, body & spirit.
Creator + Owner, Melissa Richardson has always had a love for astrology since grade school, so she started Zodiac Freak in 2017, initially as an online network for astrology enthusiasts and novices to connect.
Managing a start-up, while working in corporate America with looming deadlines, conflict at the office and long hours, Melissa knew stress was inevitable, but she also knew it was manageable. Melissa wanted a natural, holistic and cost-efficient approach to managing stress. Soon after, she started dabbling into aromatherapy using essential oils and herbs. After a while, the products became so favored, that she decided to incorporate them into the business.
Since then, Melissa has been featured on several news programs, such as Great Day Washington and Let's Talk Live. She’s participated as one of the official vendors for the Broccoli City Festival (2019) and Capital Jazz Festival (2019). Zodiac Freak recently launched our first planner, which was featured on BossBabe list of 23 Gifts for Any Boss Babe.
