Farm to (Dressing) Table
Get back to basics with these farm-raised beauty products
We love shopping at the farmers' market, but lately we've found something to obsess over besides fresh fruit and vegetables: farm-grown beauty products. Made with ingredients picked at the peak of their harvest, these all-natural lines are loaded with antioxidants and botanicals.
80 Acres Nestled on McEvoy Ranch in Northern California, Nan McEvoy's olive orchard yields tasty extra-virgin olive oils--and now a line of body care. We love the lip balm ($9), bath salts ($24) and hand-and-body lotion ($25), all of which are infused with McEvoy's nourishing olive oil.
OM of NM The owners of New Mexico's Old Monticello Organic Farms make a herb-and flower-packed line of body care for their daughter's San Francisco spa, International Orange. We can't get enough of the steam-distilled essential oils that help maintain skin's pH balance ($12). Mist over your face to use as a toner, or all over your body as a light fragrance.
Tata Harper Tata Harper is living out our rural-fantasy life on a 1,200-acre farm in Vermont, where she whips up luxury skin-care products using organic ingredients grown on her Champlain Valley property. Her Rejuvenating Serum ($150) is packed with natural soothers, like narcissus-bulb extract, to fend off wrinkles and keep skin glowing. We're also partial to her Irritability Treatment ($65), an aromatherapy oil composed of calming flowers--it's like a spa in a bottle.
