meet the maker - oille natural

oillee natural

Austere aesthetic meets intelligence. Clinical Aromatherapist, Kirsten King, formulates organic and GC/MS tested essential oils into beauty serums.  We love Oille Natural (pronounced "oy-elle nature") because of it's simple sleek packaging and amazingly effective formulas.  Their facial serums are lightweight and breathable but heavy enough to improve the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.  Our most popular item made by Oille Natural is hands down the hair serum which is popular with both men and women and smells amazing.

Meet the Maker - Marble & Milkweed

Briar of Marble & Milkweed

Marble & Milkweed products are made by hand and with great love, in New York City.  Designed to simplify the way you care for yourself, all products are formulated almost exclusively using organic and fair-trade ingredients. They are gentle and contain no harsh chemicals or artificial scents.  We chose to sell these products at  Formulary 55 because they are simply packaged, and delicately, yet complexly scented.  Briar, the master maker's, past life as a pastry chef really shines through.  Our top selling item from her collection is the Cardamom Body Butter.  My favorite however is hands down the Bath Nectar.

Meet The Maker - Formulary 55

Cordelia and Anthony of Formulary 55

I wanted to give you all a little background on the people who make the products we carry.  So, drum roll please....welcome to my new Formulary 55 "Meet The Maker" blog series!  I thought I'd start with us, as for now, the majority of what we sell is made by us.  Looking ahead, our plans include adding many more handmade small batch lines to the Formulary 55 range.  If you know of a great line we should look into, or perhaps make yourself, please contact me!  Finding something new and different (and of course effective) is the best part of my job.  I love trying new treatments, soaps, soaks, lotions, potions...what have you, and am constantly adding to my collection.  It could actually be a bit of a problem.  A storage problem should see my bathroom counters!
