About Audrey Dombroski | Founder & Maker
My initial journey into herbalism was one that was caused by a big shift in my own reality. At the time, I was nearing the completion of medical school and felt that something was missing. I desired a deeper connection to the healing process, one that would allow me to use holistic methods to help others. After medical school, I began training as a Clinical Herbalist and began learning about medicine through an entirely different set of eyes where natural therapies are used to heal.
Herbalism provides the nourishing connection that I yearned for and has brought forth a fresh perspective and newly discovered relationship to plants and my environment. I wanted to support this new consciousness and spiritual growth and began to look into my own physical health and beauty rituals.
I became inspired to formulate my own skincare products and focused on using only natural, plant-based ingredients. Not only did I notice the healing qualities these products provided for my skin, but I immediately became aware of how the simple act of opting for natural and non-toxic skincare products is a key aspect for optimal health and wellness. Erbose was created to share this mindful intention of wellness and natural beauty. It is my hope to inspire individuals to holistically enhance their lifestyle by implementing self-care rituals into their daily routine.
About Jen Schachtebeck | Creative & Operations
Conceptualizing and creating—what I've always been interested in and what I love to do most. Early in my career, I spent a good amount of years working on visual merchandising teams for Urban Outfitters, then eventually moved onto the corporate world, where I took on several project-based contracts for Restoration Hardware, Bare Escentuals and Williams Sonoma alongside their photo, design and E-commerce teams.
Now at Erbose, I'm able to combine my passion for design along with a more recently found passion of mine: natural and plant-based products.
It wasn't until I became pregnant with my first baby that I realized the impact of nourishing my body—and consequently, my growing baby's—with healthful foods and natural products. Leading a truly organic and natural lifestyle is by no means easy, but in continually educating myself about the benefits of certain ingredients I choose to place in and on my body—and those of my kids'—my path to overall wellness grows shorter with each day. I'm excited to partner with my sister to make these products more accessible to other families.
