Flying Bird Botanicals
Who are you and what do you do?
We craft delicious and nourishing organic teas & drinking chocolates, as well as all natural & 100% organic body and baby care products including creams, face and body washes, aftershave, shaving soap, salves, oils, toners, scrubs and more. The wholesome organic ingredients we use are sourced as close to home as possible. When we purchase ingredients
over seas, we source certified organic and fair trade ingredients. We offer beautiful, unique herbal and exotic tea blends, deliciously organic raw drinking chocolates and beautiful organic body and baby care products.
We make everything by hand in our little shop up in Bellingham, WA. We start by sourcing the absolute highest quality ingredients possible first looking to source everything we can from local producers. We are currently working with more than a dozen organic farmers and producers here in Washington for everything from hydrosols and essential oils to
herbs and beeswax.
We take these high quality ingredients and carefully craft them into being. We hand mix all of our teas in small batches — even the ones we drive down to Seattle to have put into biodegradable silken teabags — using our locally sourced, organic and fair trade herbs, teas, and spices and following our own unique and original recipes. Slowly and carefully we tailor each blend to the time of year, the flavor of each herb and where it grew. Our body and baby care products are crafted with the same careful attention to detail. Each product is made in
small batches with slow processing methods to ensure quality at every step of the way. We love hand harvesting the herbs from our garden and local forests to infuse into the oils we blend carefully with local organic flower waters and local organic beeswax to create beautifully nourishing creams and salves.
We finish by selecting the most ethical, sustainable and most beautiful packaging possible. We use recycled steel tins made in the USA and as many jars and bottles we can find made in the here in the states and a few that are recycled as well and always recyclable. We top it off with beautiful, artistically designed labels printed on beautiful heavy weight textured paper that reflect the care and attention to detail that goes into the creation of each of our products. We hope to offer something beautiful to be enjoyed on every level 🙂
