About Recipes for Self Love

Intersectional artist Alison Rachel is an injustice disruptor. Out of a personal quest for mental health “recipes” and the ways women protect themselves from daily negativity, Alison launched her brainchild Recipes for Self Love filled with illustrations and messages for women by women. With musings and meditations on feminism, beauty stigmas, sexuality, and mental health, Alison’s endeavor to “disrupt mainstream media and everyday social injustice” instigated the Instagram page with 366K followers. The popularity of Alison’s recipes led to her follow up book, Recipes for Self-Love: How to Feel Good in a Patriarchal World, set for release by HarperCollins April 2019.
