Our Story

Loam and Arrow Homestead

Caring for the skin has been at the root of my heart and soul for as long as I can remember.  In 2014,  after marriage, a home full of kiddos, and much debate and sacrifice, my husband and I decided it was time for me to start chasing the dream of becoming a Holistic Esthetician. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the graduates of Esthiology Science from the Aveda Institute South in Franklin, Tennessee.  

My facials are holistic in nature and I use only organic, professional-grade plant active luxury skincare.  All three of my skincare lines are gluten-free, cruelty-free, and toxin-free, with a good portion of my products being nut-free. 

So what led me down the path of becoming a Holistic Esthetician? The inspiration to take a more natural, slow, intentional, and non-invasive approach with skin is due to years of personally struggling with cystic acne, rosacea, barrier impaired, and sensitive skin. I am now on the opposite side of the spectrum with very dry and reaction prone skin partially due to my health journey with hypothyroidism and the auto-immune disease, Hashimotos.    

It is important to me that I provide a self-care atmosphere that is gentle and un-rushed.  Those of us who are auto-immune, know first hand the importance of slowing down, taking it easy, and being intentional with our energy.  It is my heart to provide a safe and relaxing space, and to only use skincare that is free from toxins, gentle, balanced, but with high efficacy from botanicals.  I am committed to offering you a unique facial experience paired with the most luxurious and organic skincare within my reach as a solo esthetician. 

Since 2015, I have continued my education in many areas of esthetic services and modalities, but my love is taking the path of skincare that is clean, effective, and holistic. In a nutshell, I am a naturally minded homeschool mama of five, an aspiring master gardener and homesteader, I am studying to be an Organic Skincare Formulator, all while continuing to offer holistic facials part-time in my private home-based facial studio in Columbia, Tennessee.


We are the Sofka Family of 7, striving to live/learn all things food, sustainable and intentional, on our 5.5 acre Tennessee homestead. Our homestead collectives consists of: Homesteading, Aesthetics and Art.
