Nectar and Root has just opened its doors to its store this week on West
Canal Street in Winooski and we are very excited to be carrying these beautifully
scented perfume brands in our newly opened shop!
The first line of perfumes that we are carrying comes from the brand Moon
by Moon Apothecary in Raleigh, North Carolina. Chanelle A. Bergeron, a certified
energetic herbalist and flower essence practitioner creates these lovely scented
elixirs, incorporating her knowledge of plant medicine and energy work into her
creations. I love how each elixir is infused with her homemade essences. When
applied, these essences add a little bit of emotional or spiritual assistance to your
day and are made from flowers and plants but sometimes even stones or trees. The
shop will be selling a wide variety of her elixirs and there are plans for Chanelle to
make a custom-made blend for Nectar and Root in the coming months.
The shop will also be selling For Strange Women, whose perfumes are made
with high-quality plant extracts and bottles are artistically crafted. For Strange
Women is based in Kansas City, Missouri. They pride themselves on incorporating
natural plant oils into their perfumes and their sustainable production of their
scents. Their botanical approach to perfume making means that their scents are
more natural smelling and work with your body and mind, instead of the synthetic
and chemical based perfumes that dominate the perfume market. Their attention to
detail is evident even from the packaging of their perfumes, which are inscribed
with a variety of intricately made botanical illustrations that I absolutely adore.
Apart from the lovely smell, my favorite part about Moon by Moon
Apothecary are the pieces of flowers or stones that are incorporated into the
perfume mixtures, making it even more delightful to put on. For Strange Women is
equally enchanting but their product is especially intriguing because of its elaborate
botanical packaging. You can’t go wrong with either one of these makers' perfumes and they
are definitely on my wish list of future things to buy at Nectar and Root!
