Hello, and welcome to Syd Botanica!
Our passion for art, design, plant medicine, and the natural world are woven inextricably into the philosophy of our business. We believe in making well-crafted products that make people feel good, and create time for self-care and relaxation.
All of our products are made by hand, and with great care. We use natural ingredients, sourced from all over the world, and of the finest quality we can find.
About our incense offerings:
It was our love of scent that opened up a door to studies in plant medicine 6 years ago. We have a long-standing fascination with fragrance and its transformative effects on the mind.
The olfactory bulb transmits smell information directly from the nose to the part of our brain (the limbic system) that seats emotion, motivation, and memory. Like poetry, fragrance can transport you to another time and place in an instant. With a direct line to the central nervous system, certain scents can trigger signals to relax or stimulate the body. The pairings of fragrant herbs, woods and resins in our incense blends are chosen to evoke a certain feeling, place or body state. We hope you enjoy your time with them as much as we have enjoyed making them.
Syd Botanica is founded by designer and clinical herbalist, Sydney Buffman. In the summer of 2016, she and her partner relocated from Hawaii to Warsaw, Poland.
