Aster and Bay


Aster + Bay was founded by Erin Hammond in 2012 as an outlet to create self-care products while she studied western herbalism. Prior to that, Erin received her graduate degree in Architectural Conservation from the University of Edinburgh. It was during her study of architectural history in Scotland that she developed a love for traditional craft and the preservation of craft methods. Turning to a slightly different medium once back in the States, she began to investigate and study botany, plant folklore and herbal alchemy. 

Aster + Bay is now run by Erin and her husband Glen in Atlanta, Georgia. Everything is created in house, from formulating and designing products to packing and shipping.  Every product is crafted in the apothecary tradition- by hand, and with intention and care. Made with raw plant ingredients only, and never any chemicals, preservatives or synthetics.  Made from organic and wild harvested ingredients whenever possible.  Packaged in recycled glass bottles and manufactured in the USA.

All products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
