The Story of the Harvest

It’s the essence of a place that exists in the breeze.

For Sausalito it’s the abundant bay laurel and eucalyptus-lined hilltops mixed with the salty sea below the Golden Gate. It’s the willows that shade our coasts and give way to sagebrush bordered stairways that snake through our eclectic hillside homes and the spirit of the makers and boat builders surrounded by wild California poppy. Sausalito Hydrosol is an essence but also a love note to a place that has created such deep meaning for so many, and especially me with Botnia. This land was originally inhabited by the coastal Miwok, then later by Portuguese immigrants, and now by many coming from such diverse backgrounds. Each plant, tree, and flower I found from a unique part of Sausalito, a special place to me that represents the spirit and essence of what it is to love the earth and make medicine to heal using what is abundant around you.

On a breezy afternoon in April with our farmer Emily in tow, I hiked the hilltops and lowlands to ethically harvest eucalyptus, great for acne and those struggling with congested skin. Bay laurel for oily skin types, coastal willow for its tannins and anti-inflammatory properties. California sagebrush for its balancing and lung tonic effects and California poppy to inspire creativity and a sense of place. This hydrosol is great for those with oily and acne-prone skin, hormonal acne, or those who want to be reminded of the smells and feels of northern California. One hundred percent of the plants in this hydrosol are from Sausalito and brewed in our copper alembic still in Sausalito. My hope is that Sausalito Hydrosol will bring you a connection to us, notes of Mother Earth that linger with you, and a sense of place.

Use in good health and wellness,

Justine
