Plant Alchemy

Farm to Bottle- Straight From The Source.

Vibrant and Alive Plant Products 

Honoring Seasonality

From tea blends to tinctures and holistic skin care, we make a range of farm to bottle products for you to enjoy. We infuse our values into each bottle In our apothecary. Our products are always made in small batches, are seasonal, and formulated from the plants we grow at Black Locust Gardens. Our goal is to capture the whole essence of the plant for you to experience. We honor the changing seasons,  along with maintaining plant eco-systems. Because of that sometimes we sell out until habitats grow back, and  we await another harvest year. We ensure that all our products are unadulterated, made with no fillers, and are of the purest, most potent and vibrant plant ingredients. Only seconds are in-between hand harvesting a plant and then bottling. This makes a world of a difference in quality and effectiveness. You can truly see, smell, and taste the difference.

Daily nourishment and nightly relaxation. 

Herbalist Formulated

I  bring  my education with me when formulating to bring safe and innovative products to you. Transparency is also important when the cosmetic industry as we know it, is highly unregulated allowing companies to put anything they want in their products without proper labeling. This is why I believe it’s so important to at least know or trust the person that is making the products you love and to know where they are sourcing their herbs. 

Artisan Distillation

Farm grown herbs are steam distilled in a traditional alembic copper still in small batches to deliver simple yet profound skincare rituals or another way to take herbs internally. Hydrosols are the aqueous product of distillation and carry the hydrophilic properties (water soluble components) of the plant, as well as microscopic drops of essential oils in suspension (Anne Harman). They are gentle enough to be used on infants and young children as well as more delicate areas of the body. They can be used as facial toners, room sprays, first aid sprays due to their antimicrobial, wound healing and cooling capabilities, genital spray to keep yeast and bacteria at bay, and many other uses. Each individual plant has its own set of constituents that work in different ways for our bodies. Discover and enjoy a new way to explore plants through the alchemy process.  Hydrosols are listed and rotated in the shop seasonally.

Why does our skin need hydrosols? Our skin needs a balance of fat and water to stay hydrated. Hydrosols are the perfect PH for our skins acid mantle and thus making them the perfect toner.

Whole Plants

Using whole botanicals in our products means giving yourself the full spectrum of nourishment that each plant has to offer. Unfortunately we see a lot of plants being extracted for one single chemical constituent with added synthetic materials, and in return these products may actually be harming our skin and body. Whole plants have thousands of phyto-constituents that are working together synergistically and nothing can compare to a whole plants effectiveness. Whole plant skin care is the most powerful form of antioxidants and nourishment you can give yourself to maintain beautiful daily rituals.

This is my first time using hydrosols on my skin. Usually every winter I have terribly dry and generally imbalanced feeling skin. I started using Black Locust Gardens face care about a month ago and my skin has never felt so balanced and healthy! After a shower I spray the hydrosol I feel I need most that day (usually it’s the lavender licorice hydrosol) then I apply “the Weaver” face serum. The weaver also rules! Doesnt clog pores and leaves me feeling well moisturized. Every week to two weeks I then use the Fresh water pearl face mask. I feel like Im glowing in the middle of summer after. I cant recommend 13 botanicals skin care line enough!

Ive been meaning to tell you that your weaver face serum is literally my favorite skin care product EVER. I am not a morning person but the anticipation of using your serum seriously makes me excited to rise. It is so divine!

I wanted to let you know I received my first order from your website last week, and I loved everything I received! I’m particularly impressed with the breast oil…it’s wonderful! I was just a few days away from my cycle when it arrived and was experiencing some breast tenderness so it was perfect timing. I just placed another order and can’t wait for my Mom and I to try out your other skincare products.

I just wanted to write to you and say thank you so much for your healing serum! I have been struggling for over a year with painful red blotches all over my face and sensitivity to everything, even water! After using the Weaver serum the first time I saw and felt such an improvement I was so astonished and relieved. My face looks so much better I can actually go out and feel confident! My imperfections are just falling off revealing supple skin. So relieved I got two bottles. Thank you!
