About Among the Flowers
Among the Flowers Apothecary is a small batch skincare line made up of 15 talented and creative women who carefully develop, craft, label, pack and ship each beautiful product by hand with love. Each product is made fresh, free of toxic ingredients, and packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Because of the raw ingredients, many of their products have a limited shelf life, but a boundless array of regenerative nutrients
Among the Flowers Apothecary has been a transformation of lifestyle for the founder, years in the making.
She had always enjoyed lovely products, beautiful scents, and spending sacred moments in self care. When she became responsible for a new life, her first son, the study of ingredients in every household and body product became her new reality. She learned how damaging every day items are to our health. sadly the most commonly used brands and easily accessed goods are filled with damaging ingredients. Her goal was to change our home environment and improve what our bodies are exposed to.
Her greatest inspiration in life is drawn from the beauty of completely wild spaces. Each of her creations is drawn from a feeling, a vision and then actualized through a completely natural blending of botanicals. From aroma-therapeutic benefits, to the vivid colors found in seed oils and dried flowers, to the simplicity of each label - she and her team strive to deliver an enhanced ritual of positive, reflective, generative beauty.
Cultivating a garden and the meditative pace of the process of making products has been a way to reconnect. The ingredients used are simple, focused, and stripped of the unnecessary. What they deliver is a positive affect on the body through concentrated enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, anti inflammatory responses, antibacterial antimicrobial compounds, fatty acids, amino acids, micro-biomes, beneficial lipids, aromatherapy, and a vast phytonutrient activity.
These active plant based nutrients are left in their natural state and deliberately made in small batches frequently during the week in order to ship out all orders free of synthetic preservatives. Shelf life is not their goal. These products are perishable and will sustain better in refrigeration. They offer very few formulas that combine oil and water for this factor alone, as it creates a perfect home for unwanted bacteria growth. This combination is often a texture based marketing application to products for the appeal of the creamy feel of the product alone. unfortunately it requires preservation and in many cases is more damaging and drying than an easily absorbed botanical oil.
the world around us is often fast. tempting us into currents of momentary gratification and distraction. Part of their offering is an invitation to let go of that vibration and find wholeness in the simplicity of life, drawing a focus on the present, on the small moments that bring light, finding a level of therapy and beauty in the bounty of the earth that is often overlooked. Among the Flowers was built on intentional, sustainable, inspirational and authentic life and they are so blessed to offer it to you.
