Artemis, the goddess of the bitches who howl at the moon. She is the virgin huntress, protectress of the wilds. Her virginity is a reflection of her self-sufficiency, rather than her chastity. Her sensuality is for herself. When we turn inward and explore our internal moonlit forests, she is there. Artemis at Dawn evokes … running barefoot, flanked by your pack, and taking a bite out of a rose.
Patchouli, but not your hippy uncle’s kind. Rose Geranium, with its aroma of rose with vegetal notes: a fave of Slovenian grandbabas. Made with a hint of grounding black pepper to add a bit of a base.
Fat and the Moon scented balms are inspired by the flowers themselves: subtle wafts of aroma carried by the wind, inviting an immersive, up-close sniff. A scent is like what animals pick up from each other—it’s earthy and innate, like the handwriting and laugh you were born with. ‘Fragrance’ is what the lady next to you on the plane is wearing that makes your peanuts taste like air freshener.
Dab a bit on your temples, wrists, and neck.

WHY 'FAT AND THE MOON'?
“Fat, in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. In both plants and animals, fat is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of, and pleasure in, that vital energy. Fat and the Moon bod care products are the result of indulgent play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
Fat and the Moon, at its core, is about healing:
Healing is reflected in the way we choose to do business, in right relationship with people and plants. We work with plants that are abundant, ethically harvested and organically cultivated and combine them in formulations that are radically non-toxic. Our priority is to use reusable, recyclable containers, and to minimize superfluous packaging.
Healing is reflected in our wholehearted support of Self Care and Self Love which stands in opposition to the pervasive message that something is inherently wrong with us, and that we need a product to fix it. We see the beauty in all bodies, all backgrounds, all ethnicities, all races and all genders. Our potions are mediums of empowerment through self care.
Healing is in the intimate connection we have with our products; each one is handmade to order by one of our incredible makers. We provide nourishing products because we are nourished by making them!”
