Witness the inspiring collaboration of mother-daughter duo Andrea Polk, the visionary behind Solo Noir For Men, and Ava Rae, a talented actor and model, as they unveil Zen Soul Apothecary—a sanctuary for cultivating balance and tranquility within both the body and home.

At Zen Soul Apothecary, we embrace a philosophy grounded in four essential steps, akin to the life cycle of a butterfly, each representing a phase in the journey of healing: Self-Love (Cocoon), where the inner child is rediscovered, igniting a transformative process of healing; Release (Emerge), a phase dedicated to detoxifying the body and shedding toxic thought patterns; Elevate (Rise), an ascent towards upgrading thoughts, enhancing self-care routines, and connecting with one's spiritual self; and finally, Balance (Flourish), a harmonious daily practice fostering continuous healing.

Our passion is to guide you through this transformative journey, fostering an environment of self-love, release, elevation, and balance. Join us at Zen Soul Apothecary and let the healing unfold in every aspect of your life. Together, let's flourish.


The inception of Zen Soul Apothecary was not just a business venture but a profound personal journey for Andrea Polk, driven by a health crisis that challenged her very essence. Faced with a debilitating ailment from 2019 to early 2021, Andrea navigated through the shadows of uncertainty when conventional medicine failed to unveil the root cause. In the face of adversity, she courageously took charge of her well-being, embarking on an introspective journey that led to a metamorphosis from a struggling caterpillar to a flourishing butterfly.

During what she deemed her most challenging period, where death seemed a looming presence, Andrea discovered a transformative truth - what was happening "TO HER" was, in fact, happening "FOR HER." This realization marked the beginning of her personal metamorphosis, a journey of self-healing and empowerment. Employing daily affirmations, visualizations, reconnecting with nature, and addressing her inner child, Andrea meticulously crafted a self-care routine that catalyzed rapid transformation in every facet of her life - emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, and physically.

Certified as a Shamonic Reiki Master, Andrea not only healed herself but also became a beacon of inspiration for others. As she shared her healing journey, she witnessed a ripple effect, with others seeking guidance to navigate emotional blockages hindering their own metamorphosis.

Throughout this transformative period, Andrea's daughter Ava Rae played a pivotal role, serving as a constant source of motivation and joy. Through songs, laughter, and unwavering support, Ava encouraged her mother to reclaim her essence. Ava Rae, with a natural affinity for spirituality from birth, joined Andrea on her healing journey. She embraced reiki, chakras, and yoga, demonstrating a keen connection with nature and energy.

This dynamic mother-daughter duo now channels their experiences into Zen Soul Apothecary, where they teach others the art of creating harmony and balance in both the home and body. Their mission is to guide individuals on a transformative path, facilitating a metamorphosis towards healing and self-discovery. Together, they embody the essence of Zen, offering a beacon of inspiration for those seeking their own journey of flourishing transformation.
