Persephone Emerges evokes...bee legs heavy with pollen, the ecstasy of bare skin exposed to the first warm spring day, and pollinating a tulip with your tongue. Wafts of fresh-cut cedar behind heavy gates laden with blooming jasmine, slicing into a grapefruit while crushing a coriander seed between your back teeth.
From plants or animals, fat has long been the medium of choice to fix and hold the most elusive scents. Scented Balms keep the scent close, intimate, and infused into your skin’s own lipid layers.

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!”
