Our Story

Hi, I'm Angie - head dreamer, maker, and founder of Gathered and Grown Botanicals. Gathered and Grown began along a number of walks through the wet, misty forests of Southeast Alaska and came to life in my home kitchen.

Born from the desire for a healthier, more sustainable alternative to commercial body care goods, and a sense of awe and appreciation for the incredible wealth of wild medicinal plants native to Southeast Alaska, I sought to learn and deeply know these plants, and to create my own herbal self care preparations that I could incorporate into my daily routine. These delightful lessons and experiments have since evolved into the soaps, salves, butters and balms that G&G now offers today.

Gathered and Grown was founded on the belief that the answer to holistic wellness – living our happiest, healthiest, best lives – lies in our relationship to nature. Our products infuse the inherent restorative benefits of wild plants and places into your daily life and routine, and honor the rugged, beautiful landscapes of Southeast Alaska’s vast temperate rainforest.

At G&G we believe in taking good care – of ourselves, of each other, and our world. We believe that regular, routine self-care is not a luxury, but a necessity for living a healthy, happy, balanced life.

I'm honored to share with you the vitality and spirit of the rugged beautiful coastline we call home, and hope that our products inspire a connection to your own wild roots in nature.
