Fat and the Moon was born out of family legacy of herbalists and natural healers. Fat and the Moon founder, Rachel Budde has created her company based on wanting to supply people with alternative options to body care products that are free of nasty chemicals. Budde thinks of herself as a witch over her cauldron when she is experimenting with different ingredients and recipes that have been passed down from all different healing traditions. She is focused on creating products that are simple, good for your body and good for the earth.
The "fat" in Fat and the Moon comes from the love of the material itself. Oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. When fat is in the form of oil it is thought to be the gift of the seed. In both plants and animals fat is where energy is stored. The oil that we get from the plants themselves is considered medicinal. Fat and the Moon aims to provide nourishing ingredients and nourishing messages of self love and self care to everyone under the moon.
