"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.

Bohemian Women

Please press play and adjust the music to comfort listening and learn to make rose water.

She celebrates the Beauty of " Truly Natural". She is effortless Beauty, an Icon of Human Beauty.

She romanticizes her world around her and decorates it with her heart.

The Bohemian Woman thrives in honesty, in simplicity, in Nature, with flowers, organic foods and clean green environments, plush with comforts of plants, trees, natural essences for scents. She is sensual in every way. Everything in her life, in environment and in her body will be good for her and she herself is good for the planet.

She is the one who sets the standard for better living in the Home.
She is the one who will demand organics in her local stores. She will shop local produce.
She will see the Earth as her playground and classroom. She will teach from this and students will benefit. She smells like herbal gardens or fresh mossy woods, or floral bouquets from pure plants.

The Bohemian woman is not a look or a style, it is a way of living, thinking and feeling. She is a conscious being. It is reflected in her environment in every way, and in her buying choices. It is reflected in her thoughts and philosophies which are reverent to what is Natural and harmless to all sentient life and yet to what pleases and nurtures.

It is reflected in her being so in tune she vibrates like a bell.
She thinks from her heart.
Her Spirit itself is colorful and full of life.


A Bohemian Woman is reflected in what she wears as much as what she doesn't wear. She will choose natural fibers like linen, silk, hemp, or cotton to wear on her skin both for health reasons and for ethical ones. Beads and crystals for jewelry, flowers and feathers in her hair.
Her eyes are often lined with kohl to frame the windows of her soul. Her face placid with gentleness and kissed by the sun.  She loves to embellish everything from her hair to her pets and she will surround herself with ethnic crafts and homemade items that are both beautiful and have a story. She thrifts for the prudence of up-cycling which keeps things alive and moving. She will seek out the unusual, the rare, the whispers of uniqueness, of wabi-sabi.

Every Bohemian woman is a mover and shaker.

Stevie Nicks

She feels her way through life.

She loves both the vibrancy and wild exuberance of colors, and the serenity and calm of pure whites.

My White Bohemian Home.

Organic beauty will always be expressed by free and natural women. Her greatest beauty trait is her confidence in herself......that she feels comfortable in her own skin, and her own thoughts and beliefs, confident in what she feels and firm in expressing it come what may. She is strong of character to express her own preferences as if she owns the world. This is irresistible. And she find this irresistible in others, the freedom to be free, adorned or unadorned to feel beautiful always.

A Bohemian woman enhances what she has with simple quick touches, never inventing different features. If one is "working" at looking Bohemian, its not Bohemian.

Bohemian women are effortless beauties. It is who she is.

She doesn't "do Bohemian", she is Bohemian.

She seeks out those people who are real and authentic. She is a friend to all animals.

The Bohemian Woman invents and reinvents the wheel so her needs get met.

The Bohemian woman has been around for centuries, and is not going anywhere.

Bohemian Women will always be distinct, an iconic eternal classic for the expression of the Free Spirited Natural Beauty in Women. She is not a trend, she is the standard.
Celebrate your Bohemian.

But my favorite posts are those that come out of the blue like this one on the beloved Bohemian Woman.

  4. So eloquent a description... Feeling one's way thru Life is the only way to Live! Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

    1. Thank you Dawn the Bohemian. I just had to write a bit about Bohemian Women because there is so little and when I want to connect with the authentic spirit of Bohemian Women online, I find mostly imitators who are being trendy, and have no clue of the genuine Bohemian Woman and what she is and how she evolved. I only touched the surface, but I'm sure readers get an idea.

  5. Yes, yes, yes. It is about honesty, and I have been searching, too. Too afraid to come out as a true bohemian, I shy towards boho, but my heart is dripping in such bohemian colours that boho seems so tame... but here I am, The Boho Gardener, still uncovering my true bohemian.
