Why are we HerbalWitch?
The witch, contrary to modern folklore, is a protector archetype. Through the eons of the ancient world, she peered deep into root, bark, leaf, and flower. She found the compassion of the universe hidden there, there in the eldest living things—plants. She passed the lore of plant-based compassion down from generation to generation. And we lived in deeper harmony with nature. We trusted her work in times of illness and injury. But that was a long time ago.
Why do people seek HerbalWitch?
Now, centralized institutions and industry have clouded her value to the freefolk. But, while chemical mastery speeds up various industries, people are becoming more aware of what is written in the fine print. Discourse over harmful side effects is nudging people to explore their own solutions to the problem. And many of them are returning to her deeper wisdom. You might be one such soul.
Why does HerbalWitch focus on tea extracts?
Teas and tisanes have been in the public consciousness for thousands of years: green tea in China, black tea in India, matcha in Japan, rooibos in South Africa, and chamomile in Europe. These extracts of leaf, flower, and stem have created legends, as if they are magical elixirs set among the mortals by the gods. There is always a grain of truth hidden in the exaggerated myths of old, and tea extracts have been studied to prove beneficial for the aging human body. Folk have largely resisted the pull of modern beverage innovations and have continued to rely on the extracts of these plants. We have taken it a step further by introducing them to personal care and skincare.
The Freefolk’s Thoughts
The witch teaches us to think independently of the world’s industrial agendas. She is a motif of society’s thirst for older knowledge. She is a marginalized standpoint of medical epistemology. She wants you to make your own mind up about skincare.
The Plant’s Thoughts
She told us of plants being conscious of soil and water. Plants think. Just differently. The skincare products curated here respect their curative thoughts. Teas and tisanes, Asian traditions built on her witchlore, are infused into our soaps and face masks.
The Skin’s Thoughts
Emerging from the earth, we are made of similar magic as our tea plants. Our body’s largest organ reacts favorably to the alkaline flavonoids, catechins, and other benevolent nutrients of tea leaves, blue pea petals, and chamomile flowers.
