We are delighted and excited to add Warrior Botanicals to our range of Irish Natural Skincare products, as part of our committment to support Irish skincare providers.
Warrior Botanicals is a grassroots herb and botanical craft studio set in West Cork, making small-batch skincare and herbal potions in honour of traditional herbalism, folk traditions, the seasons, the elements and the the earth.
Everything is made with deep respect, for the ingredients, the process, the land and their craft which they are proud and honoured to practice. Using only the purest herbs, flowers, oils, butters, extracts and essences, always organic where possible, as local as can be sourced or sustainably wildcrafted from the land where we are rooted (weedy and invasive species only).
They honour the old ways, the traditions of our homeland and the methods that have been used for centuries and are now almost lost in the storm of mass production. The studio is 200 years old, once a grain store that sits above the river in the heart of Clonakilty town. Herbs hang drying from the rafters, oils sit infusing on our old wooden windows. They use wooden spoons, an old enamel bain-marie and a huge marble pestle and mortar to hand grind the herbs.
They believe in herbs as healing for people and in the secrets of the earth and in harmonious interaction with the landscape as a birthright to all people that has been hidden and spoilt for so many years.
The folks at Warrior Botanicals are passionate that the wisdom of plants can be a part of the revolution against industry, mass-production, disconnection, disillusionment and despondency.
