Kim Pollack

Hi, Friend! I'm Kim Pollack, owner of Delicata House. You can read the Delicata House story below, but first, the fun personal stuff!

About Me

  • I'm an introvert (INFJ), an Enneagram 4, Pitta dosha dominant, and an HSP.
  • I'm a book nerd.
  • I love flower and herb gardening.
  • I enjoy making plant medicine in my kitchen.
  • Long walks as often as possible.
  • A simple, regular yoga practice keeps me feeling limber.
  • I also like resistance training, Barre3, Pilates, and dancing.
  • British and Nordic tv mystery series always.
  • I have a few chronic health issues that flare up from time to time so a daily routine, good nutrition, and herbs, vitamins and supplements are a must for me to stay well.
  • GF pasta with homemade marinara sauce is my favorite comfort food.
  • ( I think store-bought sauce is an abomination because I grew up in an Italian family.)
  • My husband and I were born on the same day (Virgos) twelve years apart.
  • We are in an acoustic duo together called The Inner Crazy, performing at local venues.
  • I write regularly on Substack (Old Soul Stories and sporadically on my blog (Life of Kim).
  • I have a son and a daughter and two step sons all in their twenties and they've all flown the nest.
  • Winter is my favorite season.
  • We live in an old house in the Finger Lakes Region of NY, surrounded by farm fields.
  • Swimming is my favorite summer activity.
  • I keep saying I'm going to learn watercolor painting and then I don't practice regularly but whenever I do I love it.
  • I want to self-publish a book in the next two years--either poetry or memoir.

 

About Delicata House

Delicata House was born in late 2017 while I was recovering from a back injury and looking for something creative to do. Since I'd been making my own natural body care products for years, I began making them for local craft fairs and holiday bazaars.

In early 2018, I opened an Etsy shop and also enrolled in aromatherapy school online at the School for Aromatic Studies so I could learn to safely and effectively blend essential oils for body care products.

In November 2018 I launched my own web shop as a way to provide more options for customers and clients to connect with me and purchase Delicata House products.

Since launching Delicata House, I've taken several trainings to be able to teach yoga and meditation, as well as offer classes, workshops, and consulting:

  • In January 2019, I completed Level 1 of Aromatherapy Certification. 
  • From 2019-2022 I studied Ayurveda at Yoga Veda Institute.
  • In the Spring of 2021, I completed my Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga Veda Institute and am certified through Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200.
  • Also in Spring of 2021, I completed Yoga Farm's Radiant Warrior 200 hour yoga teacher training.
  • In February 2022, I completed my 200 hour Instinctive Meditation Training with Lorin Roche & Camille Maurine.
  • In November 2023 I completed a 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Farm Ithaca, so I am a RYT 500, registered with Yoga Alliance.

With these holistic wellness modalities, I would love to share what I've learned with you, to encourage and support your own inner evolution and overall wellbeing with the products I make and the services I offer.
