Fat and the Moon specializes in handcrafted, herbal body care products. Like a witch over a cauldron, founder Rachel Budde experiments with age­old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovatively simple products that are good for the body and the earth. Many of the herbs used in Fat and the Moon have been home grown on the organic farm inhabited by the Fat and the Moon team. Everything is made in small batches from organic ingredients. Started as an alternative to the toxic, mass­production body care industry, Fat and the Moon products remain extremely close to their source. Budde also carefully considers what her potions live in. Plastic is used sparingly, and all of the packaging is set up to be a joy to reuse and a breeze to recycle. We should take as much care selecting the things we put on our bodies as we do in shopping for the foods we put in them. The goal of Fat and the Moon is to make that a pleasure!
