Brooklyn Made Natural

Los Angeles?? I thought it was Brooklyn!? Yep - we moved.
This all started in our Brooklyn apartments but as life changes, we've moved back out west to our hometown. Don't worry, the products are the same! Read our story below...

We love using natural products - but it was difficult to find products that are truly natural with only real ingredients that we understood. We wanted only plant oils, herbs, clays and essential oils. No synthetic fragrances, additives or colors. After searching and being disappointed we decided to make what we wanted ourselves! So our soap making was born in our small Brooklyn apartments. Soon we needed shampoo and lip balms and lotion.... also all without any chemicals, preservatives or synthetic ingredients. The results are the products you see in our shop!

We both grew up in the Mojave Desert of Southern California and have always had a love for natural herbs and plants. Currently we operate out of both Brooklyn, where Melinda still resides, and the Mojave Desert where Jennifer has recently relocated. We are happy to now be able to incorporate some locally harvested desert plants into our products.

We get many questions regarding the essential oils we use in our products. This is something very important to us so we are happy to explain a little more:


The quality of the ingredients that we use is something that we do not take lightly. Our aim is to create high quality, purely natural skin care products. This means we will not accept the use of any sub-par or adulterated oils in our products. Since our products contain essential oils, we took it upon ourselves to do extensive research to find out what to look for and how to determine the purity of an essential oil.

What we’ve learned

We were surprised to learn that “therapeutic grade” actually doesn’t carry much weight. It turns out that there is no standard regulated by any agency that essential oil companies must adhere to in order to label their oils as “therapeutic grade”. We were also surprised to learn that many companies have designed their own certifications to make it appear that they are the best. When in reality, they have simply set their own standard.

What we use

After much research and testing, we are confident that we are using the best essential oils available. We do not use only one brand or company, but several companies. We purchase USDA certified organic essential oils whenever possible. Any essential oil we use must meet our criteria; which is stated below.

Our Criteria
1. We must know the Country of Origin
2. We look for and compare the botanical names to be sure that we are getting the actual essential oil. For example, we don’t just look for “eucalyptus”, but the actual botanical name.
3. We take into consideration the part of the plant used in distillation, since this affects the quality of the oil.
4. It must be steam distilled with no solvents used.
5. The company must be open and honest about providing copies of their testing sheets such as GC-MS testing, or other tests.

Although we do not consider ourselves experts, we simply want to make known our practice in selecting essential oils for our products. We feel that it is important for a consumer to not only know the ingredients in a product, but the quality of the ingredients.
