We had the good fortune of connecting with Leslie Langie and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Leslie, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
What habits do you feel helped you succeed? I’ve often said that I wish I could get paid to be professional student; that’s how much I enjoy academia and learning new things. If I had to choose the one habit that has contributed most to my successes in life it would be me, always remaining teachable. There’s so much learning in life, and lessons come from places you least expect, even children… I’m always open to learning something new.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an Herbalist, Product Maker, Reiki Practitioner & Energy Worker, Bone Reader, Diviner, Owner & Cheif Creatrix of Whispering Eye Apothecary. Fun Fact: the majority of the recipes I use to create products were given to me in a dream by my ancestors(grandma, great grandma and elder aunties). They will often give me a list of herbs and amounts and I have to work backwards to find out what it is used for; I keep a notebook by the bed for this reason.

Each product is made in small batches and can be customized to fit the clients specific need & if you don’t see what you need, I can make it for you. Whispering Eye Apothecary was born out of my need to heal myself. Every product & service that I offer exist because I needed it first. They are all tool that I’ve used and continue to use in my life. Every product is made in small batches, I speak healing affirmations over them and set intention that the greatest and highest good be done. When you purchase from Whispering Eye Apothecary, you can be sure that your order has been sang to, danced with and infused with loving, healing energy. For me it isn’t just about selling products, & even though some have referred to me as such, I’m not a “healer” I create a safe space and provide support & tools to heal thyself.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love breakfast dates. when I have out of town visitors I look forward to sharing my favorite breakfast spots with them. My top two favorite breakfast restaurants are The Nest, in Bellflower it’s such a hidden gem & The Pancake House in Redondo beach, their bacon pancakes are EVERYTHING. Speaking of beaches, my perfect day includes sun, sand, fresh fruit & ocean air. After several hours of at the beach, I’m going to need a nap.

After recharging I’m ready to hit the street again, heading to the Laugh Factory in Hollywood for Chocolate Sundae’s comedy show or to the Catalina Club for some live jazz. While I’m in Hollywood we have to eat at Doomies, it’s vegetarian but every meat eater I take there loves it.

I’m not much of a night owl though, I’m usually in bed by 9pm. I enjoy getting out early, spending my days out visiting museums, having lunches in the park, or “chasing food trucks” and taking pictures of random things I find beautiful.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Village is the best! I have the absolute best support system that any person could ever ask for. Their love and support is unmatched. My husband, sister, children, sister-friends, parents, bonus parents… My ENTIRE village, each in their own way play an integral role in making my life such a fulfilling adventure. I am better because they exist.
