Among the Flowers has been a transformation of my lifestyle, years in the making.
I have always enjoyed lovely products, beautiful scents, and spending sacred moments in self care. The moment I became responsible for a new life, my first son, the study of ingredients in every household and body product I owned became my new reality. In this I 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. My goal was to change our home environment and improve what were bodies are exposed to.
My greatest inspiration in life is drawn from the beauty of completely wild spaces.
The neon coral of the sunset before rain.
The gently shifting golden grass of summer.
The calming pace of dripping rain, and silence of snowfall.
Each creation is drawn from a feeling, a vision and then actualized through a completely natural blending of botanicals. From aromatherapeutic benefits, to the vivid colors found in seed oils and dried flowers, to the simplicity of each label- my team and I 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 with the part of my life I am happy to share with others. The ingredients used in our offerings 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 our goal. These products are perishable and will sustain better in refrigeration. We offer very few formulas that combine oil and water for factor alone that it creates a perfect home to 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 our 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 we are so blessed to offer it to you.
Among the Flowers is made up of a team of 12+ members who work each week day, setting their own schedules with the goal to get the tasks ahead of them completed with attention to every detail. They work out of our space in Placerville and are happy to fulfill your orders and communicate with each of you!
