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.
Zlata Baba, the Golden Hag of Slavic myth: she is sublime in her embodiment of the terrifying and brilliant aspects of Life. At times, she is the bringer of light in the power of tree-splitting lightning, at other times, through subtle shimmer that allows a potent glimpse of subtle forms. Zlata Baba is an oracle. She guides our hand in transforming the skills for survival into artful craft. As we receive the benefits of her wisdom, she must be honored with gifts.
