Perhaps it is just wishful thinking, but with the popularity of blogs and online stores like Etsy, I feel like a more conscious consumerism is emerging. Sure, it is still so easy to jump on Strawberrynet or head to your nearest department store, but it feels so much more rewarding to purchase and support an actual individual striving to make their mark on this earth. With the time spent working on my own business and deciding what type of products and industries I want to support, I’ve really begun looking closely and admiring others out there who have a gift and passion that they share in their own small way. Which is why I was so taken by these exquisite hand-crafted, mostly organic, apothecary products. The brains behind FIG+YARROW, Brandy, describes her business as ‘essentially just a lady working away in her humble studio/kitchen’ practicing a form of kitchen alchemy. I cannot wait to try these products, made even more magic by the fact that each one has been made by hand with love.
