Our Story

Hello, Plant Lovers!

  

“At herba, we believe the plants are here to help us.”

herba botanicals our story

My name is Autumn, the Creative Director of herba botanicals. The brand was started in 2017 and inspired from my aviation career. Inspiration is often created by surprise and it all started in an unexpected place in Peru where I was introduced to many botanical plants, herbs, and an intricate wooded aroma of Palo Santo. I quickly fell in love with creating a world around fragrance and followed my nose along its journey leaving my jet setting career behind to create our Signature Scent found in many products throughout the collection.

After years of travel and creating fragrance, it felt like the right time to create products of my own, at an approachable price to consumers everywhere. Over the past few years, herba botanicals has turned into a home brand, bringing together a community of Plant Lovers through its botanical fragrance and aesthetic. We look forward to unfolding more creations that will resonate and enrich others.

Bringing nature into our homes is living best in harmony and balance with the planet. We take pride in steam distilling our oils that go into each of our products. We are small scale “Artisan” distillers of essential oils, made from hand with collected plant materials. We are craftspeople that have personal and intimate relationships with nature. We practice ethical and sustainable methods creating our products. In the production of essential oils, we believe this is the only practical way to keep the integrity of the fresh plant, their healing potential, and the metaphorical “heartbeat” of the plant intact through the process. Something not achievable on an “Industrial scale”. Though each batch may differ slightly in complexities of fragrance, we believe these small distillations using planet friendly and non-destructive practices, contain the highest quality. Mass production is unfortunately taking a growing toll on our health and wellbeing, and that of the planet.

Being a small company, formulating fragrance notes in our lab, we regularly test and manage quality.  We love to support other small businesses and source items within the U.S. While we look to be ‘natural’, we also evaluate effectiveness, stability, affect on skin, and the impact on the environment through harvesting and processing raw ingredients. We aim to make simple and effective products with the cleanest ingredients and actively seek to improve material stability, sustainability of production, and ease of re-use and recycling, reducing single-use packaging.

Nowadays, Herba Botanicals has expanded with new partners, new premises and many new products. Our collection includes our Signature Scent and over 50+ products found across the US and abroad. We’re also proud to be in some of the most exciting spas from coast to coast. And you’ll also find us jet setting around the world due to our recent partnership supplying products for private aviation companies. Through travels and experiences, we have developed a nuanced understanding and awareness of people and culture, striving to live as closely to nature in these modern times.

 

Thank you for your support!
