Inspiring works from rural farms, forests, & charming villages on the Salish Sea
One of the magical qualities of the San Juans is the healing power of the wild where mountains, forests, farms and villages meet the sea. Visitors and residents alike cherish this 'far away near by' as an opportunity to live differently, slow down, listen, observe, and hear our own inner voice.
This restorative journey is supported by Island Makers developing innovative botanical body care and medicinal products that bring the healing touch of the San Juans to your life and home, where ever you may live. Enjoy the locally grown botanicals infused in many of the products below.
Since 1996, Island Thyme has been creating botanically-based skin and body care products in small batches from our farm and apothecary studio in the San Juan Islands of Washington.
"We are passionate about aromatherapy and have a deep respect for the healing properties of plants and their extracts. Though our roots are in our garden and local bioregion, our arms reach wide around the globe gathering the ingredients we use in our creations. Essential oils, wildcrafted herbs, distillate waters and natural emollients like Shea butter and Jojoba oil are just a few of the muses that guide our original recipes."
In the heart of Eastsound, on Orcas, Island Thyme has a local made gallery that features their products alongside work from favorite local Makers. A landmark gallery in the village, the shop on Main Street showcases fine art, fine crafts, jewelery and the Island Thyme body care products.
OrcaSong Botanicals is a project to build a community around nature, its capacity to heal, and the countless ways it brings people together. OrcaSong Botanicals celebrates nature by curating blends of high-quality botanical ingredients, infusing them with cannabinoids, and adding naturally-derived, Rapid Delivery ingredients to increase their efficacy .
"We grow many of the plants featured in our products on our organic botanical and hemp farm, OrcaSong Farm on Orcas Island. The art of farming is the practice of maintaining the earth. As a company built around the wonders of farming and plant cultivation, we strive to apply those same principles to our products. That’s why we’re constantly working to improve the sustainability of our products. We prioritize using materials that are compostable, recyclable, or else reusable whenever we can"
