Handcrafted Gluten-Free and Vegan Goods for Face, Body and Home

Greetings and welcome!

It is my pleasure to offer you gluten-free and vegan, clean beauty products for your face and body! I've been making philtres(potions) of all sorts since 1998. I love what I do, and my positive energy is in every product I make!

Most of my supplies are sourced from the Midwest, which minimizes the carbon footprint. This is important to me, and I encourage customers to reuse or recycle product containers.

I have a background in esthetics and aromatherapy, which I use to inspire and enhance natural beauty and fragrance. Please feel free to ask me skincare/wellness related questions, I'm here to help!

I also studied plant-based nutrition and follow a mostly vegan diet. I love to cook so reach out with questions and request recipes!

Proud to be a member of the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce!

Upcycled, distinctive eco-friendly soy wax candles and soap dispensers are available too!

By hand, I create beautiful soy wax candles from vintage glassware and handcut wine and whiskey bottles. Candles are made with soy wax sourced from Midwest farmers and have either 100% cotton lead-free wicks or wooden wicks. High- quality phthalate-free fragrance oils and some essential oil blends are used for the best scent throw. The result is an eco-friendly clean-burning long -lasting pleasantly scented candle.

I also create soap dispensers made with repurposed liquor bottles.

Most candle glassware and soap glass bottles are one of a kind, I have, however some matching sets.

Thanks for visiting! What creation can I share with you today?

That's right! I appreciate your business and want to offer you a little something to say thank you.


Love the many Philtres Phaedra sent to us this year. Organic, vegan, clean goodness for the entire family. With skin sensitivities, we have to be careful, and we feel safe and spoiled using deliciously scented, soft on the skin soaps, custom hair detangler and custom scented sprays. Soy candles take a long time to burn and fill our house with loveliness.

I've been using Phaedra's products for many years now. The scent of her candles is aromatic and long lasting. I highly recommend trying these products!

Phaedra's skincare is made with simple, natural ingredients that work wonders for my aging skin! Her bar soaps have a beautiful fragrance and rinse clean. I love her candles, too! Phaedra has such a gift for creating lovely aromatic scent combinations for all of her products!! I have been using her products for years and I honestly don't know what I'd do without them!

Kathleen, Washougal WA

Phaedra's products are consistently high quality. She is creative with scent combinations and her candles are the most aromatic I've tried. Plus, her skin care products are all-natural, so I never have to worry about them irritating my sensitive skin!
