Our Process

IMG_7233

Everything we make is carefully crafted in small batches from pure, botanical ingredients in our workshop on our organic farm just west of Nashville, TN.

As soon as we get an order, we get right to work creating a beautiful, nourishing item that sings to you, our lovely customers.  We are always working on mixing up new magic that follows the seasons and what you are most interested in, so sometimes what is available will vary.

Rachel is the heart + hands behind the products (learn more about her below) and Jon does the very important work of making sure they make it to your doorstep by taking care of shipping.

We value + practice sustainability in every step of our process – from sourcing ingredients to how we run our studio to the packaging + shipping – we deeply care about the health of the planet and our process reflects this.  Learn more about our sustainable practices here.
