Achillia millefolium - Yarrow.
A medicinal herb with so much medicine and beauty. I invite you to learn more about her!
Welcome to the Farmacy, where I grow plants who share their flowers, fruits, leaves, stems and roots with me. I make deeply nourishing and pure self care essentials filled with the medicine of plants. Natural soap. Natural toothpaste. Toxin free deodorant. Healing salves. All effective, all are safe. No aluminum, preservatives, fragrances, animal products (I do use honey & beeswax in some items). No ingredients or products are ever tested on animals. No hormone disruptors, parabens, harsh detergents, synthetic chemicals, SLS or anything you can't pronounce or readily identify. Instead? Organic plants, pure and natural plant oils, natural clays, mad respect, tons of gratitude, a lot of intention, planning & integrity. Welcome to Meraki, where plants are friends, our bodies are sacred containers and we know how powerful a mindful consumer action is. Where people are indulging in acts of rebellion and advocacy by harnessing their personal power to creatively change relationships: with themselves, their bodies, the economy, our environments, families, tribes & communities, one choice at a time. Every day. Your choices - all of them - are acts of deep self love that can also be subversive, political and rad. It is an honor for Meraki Makeries to be among your boss ass choices. Here we think that even one, seemingly small, simple choice leads to alchemy. to big deals. to overhauls. to reclamation. to womanifestos. Check out The Big Ideas for a deeper look into the ideas, actions and philosophies that Meraki stands for. Or give a listen to a recent conversation with Peter Schulte, founder of Kindling, an online magazine for our next systems (anyone interested in smashing some capitalism and rehumanizing eco-nomies should check it out) and Lisa Pellegrino, one of the most compassionate and talented humans I know & creator of Pesto Grino.
What the revolutionaries and radishes are saying about Meraki Farmacy Makeries:
"Lioux, I started using chemical-free products in my early 20s. For approximately 15 years I have tried countless products, and your's are by far my favorite! Not only are they completely chemical-free and packaged with thought toward the environment, but they are the most effective. Triple power punch of awesomeness, girl!" - Jan, ultimate magic maker "Received my magical care package last evening, filled with many good goodies. Hopped in the shower and checked out the Bee Clean and Beerd Soap. Left the shower feeling and smelling clean (which isn't often) and without that dry bar soapy feeling I usually get with the cheap box store brands. Skin still feels smooth today. A work day rarely passes without cutting myself several times so I'll be trying out the boo balm when I leave here. I can feel all the magic and mad respect infused with every product. Cheers." - Chris, a welder, urban homesteader/wild forager, water protector and bearded, peaceful warrior
"Love the Teeth Paste! And the Boo-Boo Balm is a straight up miracle. I had a small rash/irritation on the side of my nose, rubbed a little balm on it and it's practically gone! I've been using something else for weeks with no results." - Banjo; animal advocate, earth protector and love goddess
"Yesterday I got the Beerd Bar in the mail from Meraki Farmacy. It's a shampoo soap made with beer and formulated for beards. I tried it tonight and like it better than anything else I've tried so far. " - John; writer & literary critic, beer enthusiast, animal welfare advocate and bearded, rad human
"A friend asked me about the Pit Stick. It's what I have been looking for! It smells great, it's free of harmful chemicals & it keeps me dry. I haven't even needed to reapply it. Lioux, thank you for making something that works, I am super impressed!" - Jan; faerie goddess, daughter of the Earth, incredible ball of love and boss ass mother
"The Poppy & Lavender soap is hands down the best soap I have ever used. It's been hard to try Meraki's other soaps because I love this one so much. I'm not typically a lavender girl, but the smell is subtle and lovely. The soap contains real poppy seeds, so it's a natural exfoliant. I don't use nearly as much lotion as I used to because this soap doesn't leave me dried out. I love it so much, I've given it as gifts to other people. Do yourself a favor, and definitely try this soap!" Leann; fierce fighter for all femmes, teacher, sustaining explosion of creativity, skilled organizer and wolf mama
