All those who wander are not lost… they are on a treasure hunt – for the beauty we lost in our mad rush to get ahead of lives. It is indeed magical to slow down once in a while, look around and see the magic that breathes through every creation around us. Those, who can see it, are gifted, I believe.
Discovered in wildflowers and bushes sprouting through sidewalks on NYC streets, Fat and The Moon celebrates the same kind of magic. Rachel, the in-house-creator-of-magic, discovered mugwort and its medicinal properties almost accidentally. But this turned into a passion and celebration and ultimately, the creation of the most boho-chic beauty brand I’ve come across till date – Fat and The Moon.
Every product at Fat and The Moon is handcrafted. But that’s not the only reason to go for it. The ingredients – aloe, chamomile, lavender, yarrow, calendula – are grown right on the farm where Rachel has her workshop. The plants are planted by the moon cycle, and when the team is not harvesting the produce and turning it into a magic potion for your skin and hair and well-being; everybody is busy weaving, basket making, cooking, hammering out jewelry, tanning all kinds of hides, scavenging treasures at low tide and last but not least, downloading audio-books. (That’s what Rachel tells!)
When you create something with such passion and infuse it with joy, love and fun; it ought to be magical. Many of the Fat & The Moon offerings have had me glued to them. However, if you are confused at where to get started, you should definitely go for their stains and eye coals – they are just AMAZING!
Apart from the bath & beauty products, Fat & The Moon also have wound powder, bug repellent, baby salve and belly balm in their kitty. Explore the entire collection here.
