Since 2008, I have been growing vegetables, flowers and herbs. I truly love being able to get my hands in soil, plant little seeds and see the moment that little life pops out of the ground. It's always a miracle to me.
This past October, we launched TSF Botanicals, our 100% Natural + Non Toxic Skin Care Collection. We began our collection by hand crafting three skin cleansing milk bars. In short time, we added three "can't live with out" hydrosol facial tonics. All the raw ingredients to produce our collection are sourced from around the world and carefully selected to uniquely benefit the skin. We formulate, create, bottle, package and ship - everything from the farm.
In this developing process, Jenni (my daughter/partner) and I knew we wanted to formulate an active botanical serum that would deliver powerful botanical nutrients to the skin and bring healing, rejuvenation, tighten and bring balance to the skin. For the past year we have been spending countless hours researching. Our two large white boards are full of lists of the names of powerful botanicals and plant/fruit oils with the descriptions of the benefits for skin.
In this process of immersing ourselves into the beauty of botanicals and oils and possibilities, it seemed only natural, we grow - here at our farm - all that we can of these beautiful raw ingredients. Currently, we grow moringa, common mallow, dandelion, comfrey, calendula, wild and German chamomile, stinging nettle and lavender.
We have already begun work on The Meadow and when those little seeds and plants are ready for harvest - they'll be gathered, dried and infused into our beauty complex oil that will be used for our own active botanical face serum.
