Superior customer service and quality of products!! The scent combinations are matched to perfection. Erica was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, and you can tell that she puts so much heart into each product. I have been bragging about these candles nonstop for almost a month! The Wild Mushroom & Tuberose is the my favorite combination!

About

Bringing elegant essences of Appalachia into your bath and home.

Not far from the glittering cities of the Eastern Seabord lie fertile farmlands, fallow fields, and pockets of pristine Eastern woodland in the shadow of the Appalachian mountains. This region -- economically depressed, yet rich in natural beauty -- is home to HENNY FAIRE Co. apothecary bath & beauty.

HENNY FAIRE Co. founder and maker Erica Vinskie grew up in the forested coal fields of Northeastern Pennsylvania. She combines a backwoods resourcefulness with professional training in the visual arts and academia to create effective, plant-based skincare and artisan fragrances for home and body. Erica believes it's not enough to be natural; natural bath & beauty products must also perform and feel luxurious. (For more on HF's personal care philosophy, read our FAQs.) Her favorite elixirs combine botanics familiar to Appalachia and the Piedmont with more exotic elements from around the globe.

Erica is proud to be a rural entrepreneur and to showcase her region's charms. In addition to operating HENNY FAIRE Co., she teaches writing and Appalachian literature at a local college. Since she cares about the world outside of her region, HENNY FAIRE Co. products are packaged with minimal waste and are formulated without petrochemicals, phthalates, parabens, or sulfates.

Frequently asked questions

Are your skincare products "all natural"?

You deserve personal care products you can trust. But "natural" cosmetics too often mean greasy butters that rub off on your clothes in fragrances that make you smell like a hippy-of-a-certain-age.

Bathing & beauty should be a cherished ritual, not a chore.

This is why HF created our line of high-performing, plant-based skincare. While anywhere between 90 and 100% of our ingredients are considered "natural," we introduce gentle synthetics when they noticeably improve the function, feel, or fragrance of a formula. Despite the fear marketing, synthetic does not mean unsafe (any more than natural means safe).

So luxuriate and rest assured. HF products work great and smell lovely without phthalates, petrochemicals, or anything harsh.

Who is Henny Faire?

"Henny Faire" is the fictional alter-ego of shop founder, Erica Vinskie.

Unlike Erica, who fled the Pennsylvania Coal Regions in search of opportunity, Henny lived out her life in Northern Appalachia. Henny's early-20th century milieu was a more prosperous time. Regular passenger trains connected the coal fields with Philadelphia, New York, and beyond.

While Henny longed to sniff the lavender fields of Provence or orange blossoms in Italy, she was content to experience them in the cosmetics procured on her train trips to the "big city". Atop her vanity, bottles of fine European perfume mingled with tinctures of locally foraged Appalachian herbs. Henny's "toilette" serves as inspiration for HENNY FAIRE Co.'s line of products.

Are your bath & beauty products available fragrance-free?

Sorry, but we do not offer fragrance-free blends.

Fragrance is our art and our passion. We believe scent is essential to elevating a bathing / beauty regimen from a chore to a cherished ritual.

Our artisan blended fragrances are intended to delight the senses rather than overwhelm them. We begin with pure essential oils and absolutes, adding synthesized aromatics (always phthalates-free) when they will make the naturals sparkle. Despite the fear marketing, synthetic scents are no less safe than naturals. Many are bioidentical to aromatic compounds found in nature.

If you're not hypersensitive to fragrance, but just turned off by mass-market perfumes, give us a try. We think you'll find our fragrances refreshingly natural.
