Go Au Naturel with Mullein & Sparrow Body Products

Brooklyn’s plant-based apothecary line

Your only reward for going chemical free: a bad case of BO.

For natural products that leave you smelling sweet, look to Mullein & Sparrow.

Brooklyn-based founder Anit Hora’s interest in ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) inspired the small-batch, plant-based line (read: no toxins, chemicals, preservatives, or artificial coloring/fragrances).

Fast-absorbing eye serum restores nutrients, hydrates, and battles fine lines and sagging skin, thanks to Omega-3 and Omega-6. Take the spa home with a lavender-chamomile facial steam designed to cleanse and flush out impurities when steeped in hot water. Slather on the clay-based, herbal-infused face mask to exfoliate and shrink pores. Antioxidant-packed French lavender body oil is as luxurious as it sounds.

We liberally lather the salve to relieve dry, chapped skin and blisters (our mommy friends use it for diaper rash). There’s even a detoxifying loose-tea blend (lemongrass, dandelion root) to purify liver function and drain lymphatics.

In a pinch, sprinkle the dry shampoo (for dark and light hair) to absorb excess oil.

It’s worth making a stink about.
