Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking natural and effective alternatives to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovatively simple products that are good for the body and the earth.
As an herbalist, Budde has a passion for plant bodies and human bodies. She sees the skin as the organ of our edge- the place where we meet the world. Our edges are the places we grow and change. Her purpose in birthing Fat and the Moon, is to provide intentionally made potions to support that fertile edge.
Mortar & Pestle, the chosen vehicle for Baba Jaga herself. Mortar & Pestle honors the magic work of mixing, stirring and transforming. Mortar & Pestle is also the perfect brick red: coppery and earthy, somehow bright and deep at the same time.
This classic color makes blue eyes pop, olive tones glow and dark hair feels a little more dramatic. Mortar & Pestle is a matte Lip Paint, with killer staying power, and a little goes a long way.
