OUR INGREDIENTS


WE BELIEVE THAT THE BOUNTY OF THE WHOLE PLANT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT.

our products are free of 

gluten, parabens, phthalates, gmo

we support organic farming

  This company started on an organic farm.  We don't eat GMOs and we don't want them on our skin either.  We source organic ingredients whenever possible, choosing to buy direct and from our local community first.

we have sensitive noses

Our products are lightly scented with only the best-smelling and most therapeutic essential oils that we can find.  We use a phthalate free vanilla oil in 2 of our products: vanilla bean luscious face cream & firefly sparkle lotion.  

we don't have any gluten in our facility

 We have never formulated with gluten containing ingredients and don't plan to start.  We check that our raw materials are certified gluten free, but we are not a certified gluten free facility.  

cruelty free

we never test on animals

The ermine that you see in the image above lives where we love to go for walks and harvest wild plants in the summer.  One day this sparkly-eyed friend popped out of it's home and looked at us so intently, as if it were seeing into our souls.  These are the moments that keep us connected to all beings and filled with wonder and a deep appreciation for nature.

we use whole plants instead of extracts or isolates
