Working on the mind, body, and spirit, the H2a Botanicals Beauty & Wellness Collection is more than just a revolution in beauty products; it’s an intimate way to create a connection with Mother Earth every day, tapping into her healing qualities and listening intently to the wisdom she shares.
Rooted in Ritual
Elevating your beauty routine into that of a sacred ritual shifts the energy and intention behind how you are using that time. By viewing it as an experience for not just the skin, but the soul as well, you have just moved from a check box on your task list to an intentional experience that you created for yourself that day.
That is why we focus so intently on consciously curating all of our products in a sacred space, and to be used for sacred self-care rituals. We want it to be a soul-enriching experience that you get to have every day, not an extra step in a complicated routine.
We are stewards of our property The Botanique, where we grow regional botanicals to harvest, infuse and curate herbs and flowers for H2a Botanicals beauty rituals and healing modalities. H2a Botanical's product ingredients not found regionally are sourced from organic and ethical companies that align with the protection and care of the environment.
Functional beauty is our approach to your total well being from the inside out and to address the root cause of any imbalance. We formulate our clean skin care with your best health in mind.
We are responsible for the environment, our workplace and our community partners. Every decision is made with mindfulness.
We are a woman owned company housed in The Botanique Fort Collins. We operate with a community collective of gardeners, healers, teachers, and creatives. We encourage a healthy work/life balance through our community and provide holistic health modalities to empower a commitment to well-being through teaching and practice.
We grow most of our ingredients. Others are responsibly sourced through organizations that support local farmers and agriculture around the world. Our glass bottles are recyclable, our tubes and cartons come from 100% post-consumer waste recycled fibers, and our labels are made from recycled material.
We support groups who share our values, including the United Plant Savers and our farm collaboration with Sproutin' Up, a local non-profit organization that supports health and wellness for North Colorado families.
THE ART OF INFUSION
At H2a we firmly believe that what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body. Herbs & Flowers have been used in skincare since ancient times and we are elated to bring that age old wisdom to life.
We practice the art of herbal infusion: This allows us to extract the beneficial properties of the herbs. True infusions can take weeks, we do not sacrifice quality for deadlines and therefor are a small batch company. We responsibly source ingredients, practice true herbal infusions and the result is; consciously crafted skincare.
Much of our inspiration comes from the mother of German botany, Hildegard of Bingen.
One principle in Hildegard’s works is viriditas, translated as “greenness” or “greening power” and interpreted as meaning growth or life. Hildegard wrote that God transmits life into plants, animals, and gems. People eat plants and animals and acquire gems, thus obtaining viriditas. They, in turn, give that life out by practicing virtue, becoming an important link in the chain of being.
Our numbered essences are based on Hildegard’s numbering of herbs, in all of her wisdom, and for all she contributed to the science.
CHARGING WITH CRYSTALS
Crystals have long been used for their energetic and healing benefits. Incorporating them into skincare rituals and wellness products elevates their healing constituents, providing you with a unique and active modality with which your skin can heal. Different crystals have different benefits, but overall they help to activate the skin in order to heal, help combat skin-damaging free radicals, and increase cellular production within the skin.
What does it mean to be a microbatch company? We hand-curate every single product in our Apothecary Kitchen, allowing us to have complete control over the quality of the products we are sending out into the world. We strongly believe that the environment in which ingredients and products are cultivated in directly affects their authenticity. Therefore, we strive to hold an authentic, natural, and chemical-free space for all of our formulations to take place.
