We believe your vanity table can be transformed into a sanctuary. We call it the Āra.
Āra/aara/noun [Latin = altar, home, refuge, protection, sanctuary]
An Āra is a sacred space that elevates your being, and invites you to reflect, re-center, and re-align.
Elements of an Āra
What if the time you spend on your daily beauty routine could be subtly shifted so that it was spent as a deeper reflection of your whole?
Vessels and Tools
How would it feel to have tools and vessels that blended beautifully into your space, handmade with materials that aligned with your values?
What if you slowed down to connect with Earth's rawest elemental beauty and found it reflected within you?

Skincare is psychological.
A skincare routine is often where we spend some of our most intimate moments with... ourselves. Moments that literally shape our self-concept. Unfortunately our surroundings during those moments are often littered with fix-it messaging that sells us a problem and a solution. Not only does that weaken our self-worth, but it keeps us distracted and in our head instead of getting grounded and comfortable in our skin. We wanted to create an alternative that helped us drop into the body and out of our heads.
Skincare expresses values.
The things we place around us are subconscious reflections of ourselves, and often the materials and ingredients of our most used objects are misaligned with our values. Our nervous system interprets incongruous behavior as a layer of shame, which can cause us to feel dis-embodied and distanced from sacredness. For products that we all engage with so often, we feel strongly that skincare should be offered in materials that can be endlessly re-used, with natural ingredients that are healthy for us and the earth.
Skin is the exchange.
Skin is the interface between our environment and our inner worlds. It’s built to serve as a plane of exchange between those two physical realms. On a metaphorical level, the skin is the perfect symbol of the boundary we can create around a sacred space.
When we are in tune with our internal world, and align our actions with her, our exterior self thrives.
