Our story began in a Santa Monica studio. With a small supply of essential oils, natural botanicals and a view of Santa Catalina–one of the islands that inspired our company name—we set off to craft our first products. Our mission was to bring fragrance and experiences from around the world, home. Throughout our travels, we are often reminded how local plants make their way into the homes, beauty products, and everyday lives of the people we meet. In our case, that fascination turned into passion, and ultimately a company, when we found that behind many of those plants and rituals are benefits, efficacies and wonders that have been skillfully passed down from generation to generation. Year’s later, we’re still at it – relying on plant-based formulation and inspiration to turn the everyday, into the extraordinary.
