SOURCING AROMATIC BOTANICALS
Nature is our ultimate guide.
Understanding how she works animates our desire to emulate her intelligence and efficiencies.
To ensure efficacy and an experience of the highest quality we personally source every botanical ingredient used in Bio Alchemy Olfactive products, working closely with farmers, ethnobotanists, harvesters, distillers, and surrounding communities throughout the world.
The herbs, flowers, roots, fruits, and resins that make up our proprietary formulas are sourced with an eye towards sustainable growth practices, mindful cultivation and extraction, and reverence for the cultural traditions that have dictated their use for centuries. All materials are raw, unrefined, and wholesome, allowing them to retain their full complex aroma profile while preserving their most effective phyto nutrients.
We research all botanical ingredients, studying their plant species and variety, soil composition, climate, altitude, and chemical constituents. We have participated in the actual harvesting and distillation of these materials to achieve a more holistic understanding of their power, application, and synergy with other botanicals. Our deep knowledge of these ingredients empowers us to provide a unique and unusual sensory experience that embodies the finest of earth’s luxuries.
SUSTAINABLE . ORGANIC . BIODYNAMIC
Our health and ultimately our existence are inextricably linked to the health of our planet. We respect our planet and its bio-diversity. All materials offered are sustainably wildcrafted, one hundred percent organically cultivated, and/or biodynamic.
Our ever evolving planet may offer slight nuances in scent from any particular flower or plant year to year, although our formulas will not change. Because we use fresh distillations and extractions from each season’s harvest, it may be possible to detect subtle nuances in certain botanicals. This evolution is something we embrace as part of the beauty of working with all natural materials.
Some of our offerings have a limited supply. We will always avoid the over harvesting and exploitation of any plant material, even if it means keeping quantities low. Our exotic and artisanal distillations, one-time extractions, and materials sourced from indigenous communities may have limited stock, and may not appear again the following season. Please savor them.
All sculptures and incense burners are one of a kind pieces created by hand.
