ADDENDUM I work hard to formulate and craft the finest products I can for you. This means ethically sourcing my ingredients, reducing my carbon footprint, and making sure my packaging is as recyclable as possible. I grow as many of the herbs that I craft with as I can, with the constant goal of 100% garden-grown. I source locally what I cannot yet produce myself. I am working to phase essential oils out of my products in favor of whole-plant infusions wherever possible. My preservative blend for my aqueous products is both good for your skin and good for the planet. No parabens, petrochemicals, or formaldehyde-releasers here! Please remember that all of my products are crafted by hand in small batches in my workroom. I follow standard sanitation procedures, but this is an environment that does contain gluten, nuts, a variety of plant/nut oils, and an abundance of both fresh and dried plant matter. Always patch test a new product, even if you are familiar with every ingredient. Allergies can appear overnight. Some photography by Celeste Boykins Instagram: @icbophotography
