Oh, sweet nectar of the gods! Just mixed up a batch of our DEW Fine Facial Oil. With a silky lightweight feel, beautiful honey floral aroma, and generous dose of oil-stable Vitamin C, your winter skin will drink it in!
Just gathered a juniper bough and birch cones from the yard for this reed diffuser for Suvi in CA. They're still dripping from the rains we had this morning.
The new packaging for our popular reed diffusers is simple and elegant.

About

Bringing essences of an American wilderness 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. HENNY FAIRE Co. home fragrances and beauty essentials are handcrafted in this region of Pennsylvania that also serves as their inspiration.

HENNY FAIRE Co. founder and maker Erica Vinskie grew up in the coal fields of Northeastern Pennsylvania. She combines a backwoods resourcefulness with a fine arts training and an advanced research degree to create effective, plant based skincare and evocative home fragrances. Erica's favorite elixirs combine botanics familiar to Appalachia and the Piedmont with more exotic elements from around the globe.

After being disappointed by the performance, feel, and fragrance of many natural/organic skincare products, Erica returned to the luxury brands she previously enjoyed. But her enthusiasm was dimmed by these products' high prices, cheap ingredients (including petrochemicals), and plastic packaging. Seeking a better way, she began formulating her own skin-loving cosmetics using premium plant-based ingredients and sustainable packaging. We think your skin and spirit will love them too!

Frequently asked questions

Are your skincare products all natural?

You're not a hippie, and you don't want to look or smell like one. But you do want botanically based skincare you can trust. And you need it to work and feel pleasant, no, luxurious to use. We got you covered.

Our skincare products are formulated using the mildest, yet effective, plant-based ingredients. While most of these ingredients would be considered "natural," we include gentle synthetics when they noticeably improve the function, fragrance, or feel of our products. Despite all the fear marketing, synthetics are no less safe than naturals.

Here's what you won't find in our formulas: petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, or anything yucky. Peruse our ingredients lists and feel free to ask us questions. We love to hear from you!

Who is Henny Faire?

"Henny Faire" is a fictional early 20th-century denizen of the Pennsylvania Coal Regions and the alter-ego of shop founder, Erica Vinskie.

Unlike Erica, who fled to Philadelphia in search of opportunity, Henny stayed on in the Anthracite Region. Hers were more prosperous times when regular passenger trains connected the coal fields with Philadelphia 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 those train trips to the big city. Atop her vanity, bottles of fine European perfume mingled with tinctures of locally foraged herbs. Henny's "toilette" serves as inspiration for HENNY FAIRE Co.'s line of products.
