About

Incorporating the beauty & wonder of nature into everyday moments

We believe every ingredient has a story. Every product has the intention to go beyond the surface to transform you. Our mission is to connect you to the natural world by offering a range of herbalist created self-care products.  Carefully selecting ingredients to bring balance and enhance your natural beauty.

Formulations are based on the extensive herbal studies by our founder, maker and resident herbalist, Carolyn. With her affinity for the herbs and knowledge of plant physiology she is able to extract powerful properties using the best traditional methods.  A blend of ritual and science that result in potent products that work.

Social and environmental integrity is a corner stone for all formulations.  All ingredients must fit into one or more of these categories:
  • organic
  • sustainable
  • ethically wild-harvested
  • local
  • GMO-free
  • fair trade

    We lead with personal integrity by:

    • Displaying all ingredients so you know what you are putting on your skin.   
    • Crafting in small batches with little to no preservatives; meaning you are getting fresh products.  
    • Using minimal packaging and containers such as reusable and recyclable glass containers or metal tins.
    • Shipping using eco-friendly materials such as biodegradable packing peanuts.

    All products are made in our small apothecary studio in Portland Oregon.  We practice patience, love and acceptance and hope to impart those feelings into every product we make.
