Living in Plant World

Our lives are full of plants: herbs, flowers, grasses, moss, trees. They surround and support us everyday, though sometimes we’re too busy to notice. And sometimes, you have to know how to look.

Take a little time to admire the flowers as you weed the garden. Crush herbs between your palms and linger over the aroma as you cook. Blend your own bath tea and take a long, soothing soak.

Enjoy all the different colors, textures, aromas, and flavors the plants give us. Those moments of consciously celebrating the plants remind you that you are connected to Nature– you’re part of Nature– even when you can’t quite feel it.

Plant-powered Bodycare

natural ingredients

Handmade. Vegan. Small batch. Created by a plant-loving compulsive label-reader.

I’m a big believer in the adage “you shouldn’t put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth”. I like simple recipes where every ingredient is “active”.

Find the right blend for you

Are you active outside, sensitizing your skin with long exposure to sun and wind? Try Calendula, Elderflower & Rose (the ‘Ori’ blend)

Do you have the skin of a gardener, rough and dry from digging in the dirt? Try Comfrey, Sage & Chickweed (the ‘VireĊ’ blend)

Is your skin dehydrated and stressed from too much time in artificial light and recycled office air? Try Lavender, Seaweed & Mint (the ‘Aqua’ blend — coming soon)
