Here at Greensong Botanicals, you might be surprised to learn that education is my biggest priority.  Discover, explore, and enjoy my selection of nourishing handmade products while also learning how you, your body, and the planet can benefit from this choice. 

Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies. We often think of it as something outside of our bodies like a protective layer rather than something integral to us that is a living, breathing, permeable part of our body.Skin absorbs toxins out of the air as well as whatever you put on it including bug repellents, lotions, sun screens, etc. Whatever you put onto your skin ends up in your bloodstream and cells just as if you had eaten it.  Greensong Botanicals' products actually feed, nourish, rejuvenate and help the skin through the use of nutritive oils, beneficial herbs and the therapeutic properties of essential oils.  That’s why we say that Greensong is good food for your skin.

I believe that we are not separate from Nature but an interactive and interdependent part of it.  All Greensong Botanical products are plant based and non-toxic which connect your good health with the health and well being of the planet. When possible, I use plants sourced directly from our organic gardens located on the island of Kaua’i in Hawai’i.  In addition to this, I use food and therapeutic grade ingredients which are certified organic, grown using organic methods, or sustainably wild harvested.

What this means is that while the products offer you the healthful benefits of plant based ingredients in their minimally processed states, your purchase also benefits the small producers of the oils, hydrosols, essential oils, and herbs. These producers are often families, small villages, or groups of small scale farmers who work cooperatively to get their crops processed and distributed. In many cases the demand for these natural ingredients helps communities support themselves and to restore the ecosystems in their areas.

There is an integrity and accountability with handmade products that is not always the case with mass produced commercial products.  All Greensong products are infused with a specific intention to be beneficial to all those who are connected to them in any way.  The intention encircles the plants, the farmers, all of those involved in the processing and distribution of ingredients, and those who use the products.

My vision of the world is that our health is intimately and unequivocally connected to the well being of the environment, the planet and each other. I believe that it is important to reconnect ourselves with the world of Nature and the global garden because by understanding our interrelatedness with Nature, and the wisdom inherent there, we can right many of the difficulties we now face on the planet.

To these ends I invite you to step into the mandala (circle) of life, love, healing, and wisdom that is the Greensong of Nature.

As within, so without.
