Beauty and Function

The pretty lady on the right is my grandmother, Caroline. Her love of medicinal herbs and Pennsylvania Dutch work ethic was the inspiration to start my company. She is the cornerstone of why I put beauty and function in all my products.  (photo of me on left, by Erica Houskeeper)


Over 23 years ago, I searched in vain for chemical-free products to soothe my sensitive, acne prone skin. I decided to stop searching and instead utilize my knowledge of herbs, agriculture science and entrepreneurship. The result is a line of skincare that is highly effective and a delight to use. I use only the finest ingredients available and lovingly craft each batch with my own hands (soaps made by VT Soap Co). 

I love being outdoors, especially riding bikes and hiking around Vermont. I ride my red cargo bike for local deliveries (yes, right to your home or work) and run Pop Up Shops.


Life is an adventure. Go get some wind in your hair, some mud between your toes and some heart warming sun in your day.

Calendula Cream

“I just received my Calendula cream yesterday.  I love the consistency and richness of the cream.  My skin feels so smooth after it is applied. I especially love the note you included and the sweet treat. Thank you so much for everything. It is obvious that you put great love and care into your products, and company!"
