“I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS! They really help with my rosacea! I was looking for some chemical free and natural products when I found an on-line article written about your line. I am so happy I tried them because they really help to nourish my skin by using plants instead of harsh chemicals or detergents. I have very sensitive skin, and since my husband has a sensitive nose, he's happy that the scents of your products agree with him too.”

"I have had some challenging skin issues due to my age - 54 this month - and I am a breast cancer survivor (14 years!). After the chemo treatments & Tomoxifen daily dosage for 5 years I have felt that my skin needed extra care. I have tried many products but I have not found any organic products that have been as wonderful as yours! So happy for the introduction to your line."

We remain true to our mission: to formulate using organic ingredients chosen for their attention to purity, their craftsmanship and their amazing therapeutic value.
"I’m happy to say that at this point, about 90% of my skincare routine is pretty much good enough to eat! And a lot of that is thanks to the amazing natural beauty line, Botanic Organic. I’ve been using their line of all natural, unrefined products for a few months now, and I have to say, I’m obsessed. Best of all, the whole line is totally affordable, so you don’t have to pay and arm and a leg for high quality, natural products!"
Most North Americans have grown up using lotions rather than oils for body care moisturizing, but if you’re an advocate of natural skincare, switching to a therapeutic blend of cold pressed, organic oils to pamper your skin has some great upsides.
A body oil can be used anywhere you would normally use a lotion. A lightweight oil blend absorbs quickly and provides a higher concentration of targeted ingredients than a basic lotion. The average body lotion contains 70% water based ingredients plus an emulsifier to bind the water and oil together. You can provide your own water content to your body oil by simply applying it straight out of the shower before toweling off. In so doing, you are creating an on-the-spot emulsion. Using just a small quantity of oil onto damp skin, means that a little goes a long way.
Plantain (plantago lanceolata L.) is considered a common weed and can often be found in our backyards. I have seen masses of it in our surrounding Bay Area hills while hiking. Plantain has a long history in herbal medicine, and many of its remarkable medicinal qualities have been confirmed by modern science. Used topically, it is effective on many kinds of skin disorders by simply bruising its leaves and rubbing them onto the skin. Alternatively it can be made into an oil or balm and stored for convenient later use.
