Laurel Skin - Plant Medicine for the Skin - Logo

I am Laurel, the founder, formulator, plant communicator, loving center, and driving force behind Laurel Skin. I have led a winding journey filled with education, research, and study that led to my path as a sommelier, and eventually a skin specific herbalist.

Those formal training paths, as well as my experience in farm, spa, and mindful wellness have made it possible for me to live the life of a slow beauty advocate and creator of farm-based and hyper-localized spa rituals and formulas. I walk a balance beam with one side in wonderment and appreciation of phytochemistry and the other a world of intuitive trust and respect for whole plant wisdom and ancient traditions. That balance allows me to create formulas of long-standing efficacy. Nature is my greatest inspiration and catalyst for creating formulas and rituals, and my greatest achievements as a formulator thus far have come from a stillness and trust in Nature.

When Laurel Skin was created we wanted its foundations to be committed to sustainability while maintaining effective luxury. We wanted to create products that were made from effective plant medicine that not only helped our customers personal health and wellness but also aided in our Earth’s well being. Community, sustainability, economical growth. The power of sourcing locally has no bounds.

Why elixirs are essential for skin health

While most consumers understand the importance of products like cleansers, serums, and balms as necessities in their daily regimens, far too often we hear from people who aren’t using any type of facial mist. For some, facial mists seem like more of a feel-good product versus an essential component of a skincare regimen. While there are certainly types of facial mists out there that may fall into the feel-good category, our facial elixirs are so much more and are crucial for optimal skin health.

“Sourcing determines how effective a formula will be and the carbon footprint we have on our planet. Sourcing defines who we are as a company, and in many ways defines who I am as a human being – I can’t imagine anything more important to both the heart and science of our formulas than sourcing.“∼ Laurel
