This face wash is so gentle!
The second lip balm I've tried from Fawn Lily and another hit. I love the way Irene's lip balm leaves your lips supple and soft, but not feeling like they are caked with wax. Subtle natural aroma is lovely. Thank you.
Wonderful product made with top quality ingredients. Irene's toners are fantastic. They are non-drying and smell terrific. Thank you.
This is a wonderful salve, I am currently using it on my hands and it is keeping them soft and supple. Wonderful products made with top quality ingredients. Thank you!
I really love the products this merchant makes. High quality ingredients and careful craftsmanship mean visible results. This is my favorite of Irene's serums. Such a luxurious texture that leaves my skin feeling like silk. Thank you.
I love the smell of this toner:-) great product and fast service:-)
The Story Behind Fawn Lily Botanica
I grew up in a "hippie" home on the Oregon Coast where herbs were used on a daily basis - my dad worked as a Naturopathic Chiropractor and my mom was a vegan. Both were passionate about whole, natural, and organic foods. We never used conventional medicine at home, instead my dad would hand us a bottle of Echinacea & Goldenseal when began feeling ill. It must have worked! I never went to the hospital once for a sickness while growing up. We grew most of our own food organically on our land, kept beehives and collected our own honey, caught wild salmon and steelhead, canned and preserved food to enjoy all year, went mushroom picking in the fall and winter months, and harvested fruits and berries during the spring and summer time. This early introduction to natural living paved the way for my life-long interest in natural remedies and herbals.
After high school, I moved to Eugene to study Environmental Studies at the University of Oregon. It was during this time that I realized my interest in herbalism and felt especially drawn to learning about natural body care. I bought my first book about herbal body care Earthly Bodies and Heavenly Hair by Dina Falconi when I was 18, and started learning how to make soap, lip balm, creams, shampoos, and other natural cosmetics. I worked at various health food stores during college, and after graduating, began working for Mountain Rose Herbs. I delighted in the variety of organic herbs, spices, teas, and botanical ingredients available at my fingertips and began building up a small herbal apothecary in my home and building upon my herbal knowledge.
I have now been employed at Mountain Rose Herbs for more than nine years, and have worked within the natural products sector for a total of over fifteen years. While employed as the Marketing Director for Mountain Rose Herbs, I have have attended numerous herbal conferences, and worked directly with and learned from many of the world's leading herbalists. My recipes have been featured and published in national magazines, blogs, newsletters, and journals. Sharing recipes and empowering others to make their own products is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to regularly write articles and recipes for the Mountain Rose Blog, MaryJanesFarm Farmgirl Newsletter, and MaryJanesFarm Magazine.
After 16 plus years of studying herbalism and testing recipes on myself, family, and friends, I began Fawn Lily Botanica in 2012. My focus is to create balanced cosmetics which truly honor the healing and medicinal properties of herbs. Beginning a company to sell my herbal creations has been a dream of mine for many years, and I'm excited to finally make it a reality. I truly hope that you enjoy my products!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Since products are carefully handcrafted in small batches, please allow 2-4 days before the order is shipped. I make all of my products in very small batches, and as a result, there might be times when your order is slightly delayed because I am crafting the products fresh to fill your order.
Orders will be shipped using USPS which typically takes 2-5 business days for delivery. You will be notified when your order ships and will be provided with a tracking number. Please let me know if you prefer a different or expedited shipping method.
I use recycled and reclaimed bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and other packing materials. This is more sustainable than using virgin materials, and you may notice that some of your packaging materials don't seem brand new and might have signs of previous use.
WEATHER CONDITIONS & PRODUCT SENSITIVITY>>>
Please note that my products are made fresh, but are sensitive to heat and other weather conditions. Due to the pure nature of my ingredients and the fact that I do not use synthetic preservatives, I cannot be held responsible for products that melt or are otherwise compromised by being left outside on a porch, mailbox, or other warm area. Your products will arrive in better condition and will have a longer shelf life if you are present to receive your order or if you arrange to pick it up from the post office. All products are shipped fresh, and in good condition, but I cannot guarantee their integrity upon arrival. Thank you for your understanding!
Refunds and Exchanges
All of my products are carefully formulated based upon the properties of the ingredients. I clearly list all of the ingredients for each of my products on my website and on each label so that you know exactly what you're purchasing and using.
Please note that not all products will work for every skin type, and I make no claims about the effectiveness of using my products. Everyone's skin care needs are unique and different. My recipes are based from the properties of the ingredients and botanicals, but ingredients work in different ways for different people. Finding the best ingredients for your skin can be a journey, but it is also very empowering!
Please see information about shipping products in warm weather conditions under my Shipping Policy.
