ripe for the picking.

My name is Adriana and I make bath and body products that evoke a sense of being ripe for the picking.

Inspiration comes from the idea of something being just right for the picking - fruits, herbals, essentials, nature, pleasant smells, the unexpected and in some cases a line from a book (I am also a full time librarian). Everything I make from my 75+ year old home studio is made with ingredients sourced from American companies, including a few Etsy shops (the only exception being a small selection of hard to find oils which I source from a wonderful company in Australia). I am self-taught and I research EVERYTHING before I begin. I guess you could say I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I have been told that I have an eye for the details (I did study and get certified in interior design in a former life).

I make, assemble, label, wrap, ship, and market all of my products and I develop new product, design my own packaging, and do my own product photography. All of my products are handmade by me in small batches, with mainly natural, high quality body-safe ingredients, no unnecessary preservatives, no dyes, no phthalates, and no animal testing. If a product is vegan (which means no animal products, including beeswax), I have noted it as such and many of my products are completely 100% natural.

I believe that if you have a vision and the drive to see it through, you will be surprised at how much you can accomplish. It is hard work, but the work becomes an essential part of your life.

⊿ lip balm top sellers ⊿
matcha green tea, earl grey, red velvet, mexican horchata

⊿ perfume oil top sellers ⊿

Some of my favorite things besides lip balms and perfumes: Breakfast at Tiffany's, Marilyn Monroe, shiny things, being lazy and watching The Golden Girls or I Love Lucy, books, the Chrysler Building, listening to Lucybell, a Vodka Collins, and the ocean.

Hello and welcome.

ripe products are handmade in small batches by me, with mainly natural, high quality body-safe ingredients, no unnecessary preservatives, no dyes, no phthalates, and no animal testing. The flavor oils contained in the lip balms are not meant to be tasted and are without sweeteners (which means less licking of your lips and less chances of encouraging chapped lips).

ripe products containing fragrance oils are made with high quality, body-safe, phthalate-free fine fragrance oils that are either natural or a mix of synthetic and natural, so they will irritate you if you are sensitive to fragrance. If a product is vegan (which means no animal products, including beeswax) or all natural (completely free of synthetics) I have noted it as such.
