Hi, I'm Cassandra and my love and adventures in flowers began at a young age. I remember when I was 6 mashing up flowers to make my mom a perfume for Mother’s Day. Ten years later, I took my first flower arranging class and then after many different classes found Ikebana (Japanese floral design). For 12 years it challenged me to be disciplined and taught me to be meditative.

I have been a florist for 16 years, have learnt many botanical names and always had a feeling they were more than beautiful. Working with plants & flowers connected me to the essence of nature & I became more sensitive. I was driven to find better solutions to the plastic & chemical use in the floral industry. I knew it was possible to offer classes, flower arrangements & products that are non toxic with minimal waste: products that support people, animals & the earth.

I was drawn to delve deeper into the healing benefits of plants and flowers and in 2016 I started a course in herbalism at the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine and I learned how to extract the properties of botanicals and infuse oils with their magic! This course taught me the healing properties of each plant & flower and I learnt to make flower essences, serums, salves, tinctures & infusions.

I create because it brings me joy, & connects me to be-ing. I am grateful to do what I love, inspired by Nature’s endless giving beauty. The products created through me are recipes made to heal & nurture love & now I share them with you.
