Thank you for visiting virga botanicals!

The word 'virga' is Latin for 'a green twig'. It connotes something new, fresh, always growing.

I will admit from the start: I am an aesthete, pure and simple. Beauty is, to me, nothing less than a spiritual principle. Not vanity - the mere concern with personal appearance - but the real, pure beauty of living things everywhere.

On a more substantial level, I put a huge amount of effort and research into everything from sourcing the purest quality ingredients to minimizing and substituting for known sensitizers, to aseptic technique in preparation (I am a healthcare worker, after all!) to packaging. As a vegetarian, I make it a priority to ensure I use nothing for which any creature, uh, got the short end of the stick.
As an Licensed Acupuncturist and herbalist, I make use of the botanical principles of that tradition (so sublimely effective, ask me about it anytime if you are interested, I love to talk about it!)
And as a plant and nature buff who has been making her own skin-care products since she was 12 (so thats 33 years in case you're wondering!) and fielding queries for as long regarding what I 'do' to my skin, I've had enough practice and encouragement that I hope I have something to offer in terms, not of vanity, but of Beauty.
Thanks so very much for taking the time to visit me and to read this!
If you are interested in carrying virga botanicals products in your store or salon, please send a convo for wholesale prices.
