The Pocono Mountains book is so beautifully crafted, with detailed drawings, interesting photos from the region, and such well researched yet personal essays and stories. The perfume, chef's kiss, smells so good. And the tea is so soothing.

The sweet floral rose sent with the spicy cardamom is perfection! I use this on my hands every day. The shea butter gives it a nice, creamy feel on the skin. Love this product. I am officially addicted.
Rituals in self care
My love of history and nature began through explorations as a child growing up near the Delaware River in Northeastern Pennsylvania. My intimate connection with historic landscapes developed over time through my studies in historic preservation, and continue to evolve through my current program of study in western herbalism. The wild coastal landscapes of Northern California are where I feel most connected these days and I seek to share these special places through the various Senses of Place projects.
The Senses of Place herbal self care products came about from my personal frustration with unidentifiable ingredients in mass produced personal care products. Inspired by herbs, I began making my own natural beauty products and folk remedy tinctures as a heartfelt ritual in self care. After sharing with friends for a few years, I was encouraged to begin selling the products to reach a growing community of people interested in personal care products that are carefully crafted with love and intention and rooted in the natural landscape and its traditions.
The inventory of products will evolve over time as I explore new places, herbs and techniques.
I hope you love my products as much as I love making them for you!
Senses of Place
Senses of Place was founded in 2015 by Gretchen Hilyard Boyce, a curious Aquarian with a love of nature, historic preservation, tea drinking, and self care rituals.
