Greetings, my name is Shelley, I am the visionary behind Gatheress.
Gatheress was born to conspire with flowers and trees,
to awaken and enchant the senses,
with creations that celebrate individual, unique & uncommon beauty.
Our senses are powerful allies;
they can bring us back to center and ground us in our reality.
It is through our senses that we experience beauty.
Beauty that can remind us of who we are and why we are here,
in a tangible kind of alchemy delivered by simple human experience.
My lifetime will be an act of devotion to cultivating knowledge and understanding the plant world. I spent years studying plant taxonomy as a graduate student in Botany and now I weave these lessons together with my fascination of magic and divination. There is a tangible intimacy we can experience with the plant world in which we can find solace, transformation and healing if we are willing to cultivate a relationship.
Gatheress botanical perfumes & herbal creations are made with consciously sourced pure essential oils, extracts and natural botanicals. Preference is made to work with small-scale artisan distillers that create with an eye toward organics, ethical wild-crafting & sustainability.
