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, usually 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.
