Hillary Tijerina (she/her) started Merigold to empower women to pause. As a nurse, mother, wife, natural food chef, and nutritionist, she's seen firsthand the toll constant striving takes on the body. She didn’t want her daughter growing up thinking she needed to participate in the incessant hustle to be worthy. She knew she needed to be the example.

Merigold offers a seasonal monthly facial mask, but it is more than just skincare. It is reclaiming our moments from the endless to-dos and distractions. It is nourishing our skin, bodies and souls with quality ingredients both on and in our bodies, and taking up the space for ourselves, so we can emerge truly refreshed.

We are a community of women, reclaiming our natural beauty and the space to breathe. Together, we are unstoppable. Here is your moment of pause: all you need to do is take it.

What inspired Merigold?

My mother and my daughter.

How would you describe Merigold to a friend?

The name Merigold has a lot of personal meaning behind it. I grew up for some of my middle school years in Papua New Guinea (PNG). PNG is beautiful and living there was a life changing experience. There was a “me” before PNG and there was a “me” after. Living there at such a transformational age shaped how I see the world, specifically how I see beauty and women. Meri means woman in Tok Pisin, the main trade language of PNG. Women in PNG are strong, fierce protectors of their families; they are smart, hard working, and undervalued by the culture as a whole. Their stories are always with me and PNG will always be a part of my story, my learning, and my becoming. 

Marigold flowers hold a special place in my heart. The medicinal marigold flowers are known as calendula and are believed to have amazing healing properties. Marigold’s also play an important role in Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico, the ancestral homeland of my husband and daughter.

Merigold is about honoring ourselves so we can be more present for those we love. My little family fuels me to become a better version of myself. I want to advocate, grow, and find the beauty around me and in myself so I can teach, model, and ultimately make a better world and future for other women.

What are your individual core values?

Family, justice, and hard work.

How do your friends describe you?

As a strong and passionate old soul.

How do you want to be remembered?

As someone that brought moments of pause to women and helped to curate self-care as a loving and accepting way within the beauty industry.
