What is Flora's Feast?
A celebration of flowers and herbal traditions your skin will eat up! Introducing Flora's Feast, a handmade botanical skin care line created by this new mama in her kitchen and on her backyard homestead. Inspired by Flora, the goddess of flowers and celebrating the history of this craft, my products are made using time honored methods to create sustainable whole plant products with herbs I’ve grown or foraged. Launched in the winter of 2020 with products to support new mamas and babies, additional products for women, men and lover self-care are percolating in the apothecary. Feed your skin plant magic!
Who is the Maker?
I'm Harmonie, the gal behind Flora's Feast. A native New Englander, I now reside in the Driftless region of SW Wisconsin with my husband, daughter, cat, dog and chickens in an 1899 Victorian home on a .4 acre urban homestead. My herbal products are the result of a ten year learning journey that began with an apprenticeship at the Boston School of Herbal Studies followed by courses in aromatherapy and palmistry. Devoting most of my previous professional career to selling and marketing organic food, I have a passion for agriculture, homesteading, cooking and canning. Follow along as I explore and share the natural lifestyle choices we make for our bodies and in our home.
What do I make?
After birthing my first child in 2018, I was so pleased with the products I created for my own pregnancy, birth, postpartum period and baby care that I shared with family and friends. The recipes were tested over the long haul giving me confidence in their ability to sooth and protect you and your baby during this pivotal moment in your lives. After spending many hours reading herbal books while my infant contentedly napped in my arms, I refined my formulas and a company was born! Ok, there was 9 months of labor before the birth of this website, but who is counting!
I believe in the art and science of herbalism, relying on both my intuition and education to formulate my blends. Sustainability and transparency are at the forefront of my ethos. Starting with organic seed when possible and utilizing many perennial or self-seeding plants, my gardens do not get sprayed, but rather rely on the sun, rain and compost for healthy growth. My products are chock full of herbs I grow or forage, slowly steeped into a base of organic oil and often blended with local beeswax and emollient butters. They are packaged in reusable and recyclable glass containers allowing you to peek at what’s inside then wrapped in plant dyed thrifted stripes of cloth and tied with hemp twine before they are ready to be shipped to you.
