Our formulas and compositions are made through love and devotion. We are deeply passionate about crafting from the heart. With respect, and understanding. We use energetically profound substances that have depth, complexity, and harmonize us with the elements in our bodies. These are substances that have supported us in many ways; Substances that have transformed us, that have touched our souls, rejuvenated our skin, and energized our sprits.
All ingredients are organic, biodynamic, wildcrafted plants, herbs, and resins. Sustainably grown and ethically harvested/sourced. We work closely and intimitly with local farmers and grow our herbs using methods we've developed, that are inspired by Korean Natural Farming, Biodynamic and sustainable garden principles. We believe in nature and allow her to do most of the work, assisting her along the way.
Intentionally curated and hand crafted by us. We work with the seasons and focus on powerful healing allies that psychically speak to us. By creating everything in small batches, we keep our quality high and are able to have a deep connection with our partnerships and plants we meet along the way. We do not ever wish to change that. Our passion is working closely with nature. Working with our hands; constantly diving deeper into our craft to understand the wisdom of the earth.
We appreciate a wholistic approach towards life, our bodies, and our skin. Understanding the interconnectedness of everything. How taking care of your skin and body can lead to far greater things. Self love is wholistic. When you begin to take care of one part of yourself, it will lead you to another. The skin is the largest organ of the body; the main protective barrier between you and the world. We believe taking care of our skin and body is vital. To feel comfortable and healthy in our skin is empowering and beautiful for ourselves and the world around us.
The purpose of our creations is to connect us. To empower us. To set ourselves free, and transform our modern perception of beauty and self care. Skincare should feel beautiful, it should make you happy, it should connect you to the earth. To feel the healing energies of the earth.
