About

Ingredients are Everything! Inspired by the beauty and healing powers of flowers and plants & made with high quality all natural & organic ingredients

Hi, I'm Cassandra, the face behind "Be Natural Botanicals".

My love and adventures in flowers began at a young age.

I remember when I was 6 mashing up flowers to make my mom a perfume for Mother’s Day. Ten years later, I took my first flower arranging class and then, after many different classes, I found Ikebana (a Japanese art form). For 12 years it challenged me to be disciplined and taught me to be meditative.

I was a florist for 15 years, knew many botanical names and always had a feeling they were more than beautiful. Working with plants & flowers connected me to Spirit & I became more sensitive. I was driven to find better solutions to the plastic & chemical use in the floral industry. I knew it was possible to offer classes, flower arrangements & products that are non-toxic with minimal waste: products that support people, animals & the earth.

I was drawn to delve deeper into the healing benefits of plants and flowers and in 2016 I started a course in herbalism at the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and I learned how to extract the properties of botanicals and infuse oils with their magic! This course taught me the healing properties of each plant & flower and to make flower essences, soaps, lotions, salves, creams, candles, tinctures & infusions.

I grew up in foster care and when in dark places, creative classes gave me hope that one day I could do what I love for a living and this filled me with Light. Through Be Natural Botanicals I dedicate 3% of all sales towards supplies for creative programs that I prepare and deliver to youth-in-care (foster children) for free.

I create because it brings me joy. I am so grateful to do work I truly love, inspired by Nature’s endless giving beauty. The products created through me are recipes made to heal & nurture love & now I share them with you.

    I have been working with plants and flowers for over 15 years as a florist and their magical healing properties led me to herbalism and many other courses to explore even deeper, including how to create natural skin & beauty care products.
