Heide Allan, LMT
BUSINESS OWNER: HEIDE ALLAN
Heide was born in the Philippines and raised in Hawaii. Embracing her heritage’s culture and a genuine desire to share her knowledge of ancient tropical remedies from her grandparents, she became a licensed massage therapist (LMT) in Hawaii and Ohio. She has practiced massage therapy and have been producing recipes for over 15 years—it was only a few years ago her when clients urged her to sell her products and hence Transcend by Heide was born.
Heide knew early on that she wanted to help others with massage and aromatherapy. “My grandpa said I knew what I wanted to do when I was 2 – but I don’t remember”. In 2014, she began selling her own personal care products based on family recipes from the islands.
In February 29, 2016 Heide opened the doors on Transcend by Heide in Maumee. Using goat milk and coconut milk, along with essential oils, Heide creates soap in bar and jelly forms. Other ingredients include rose water, arrowroot and agar-agar. Her Black Magic soap includes royal jelly and active charcoal to help customers with acne or odor issues. Another combines papaya and goat milk. Kiana’s Skin Soothing Jelly Soap is a highly concentrated wash made of coconut oil that can be used a small spoonful at a time with a loofah. “It’s not a fake lather. I use fruits and oils. I know how to manipulate the ingredients,” Heide said.
Heidi, Winner of The Best of Toledo in 2017 and certified AMTA, she and her staff believes in the needs of others with simple, natural healing combining the five elements of nature: Fire, Earth, Water, Metal and Wood which are directly related to our five senses.
