About our Ingredients

We source the majority of our natural oils from a company called Organic Infusions. They have a strict testing procedure which I feel confident with. As found on their website: Rose Heart, Certified Master Aromatherapist, Herbalist and Founder of Organic Infusions inspects a sample of each oil before the batch for that season is approved to be sold by Organic Infusions, Inc. The following is Rose's 3 part approval process for testing each sample: 
  1. The oil must be the right aroma, color, and viscosity.
  2. The oils are tested with a Gas Chromotographic Spectrometer to ensure that correct beneficial compounds are at the essential levels required for a true therapeutic effect.
  3. The oil's Life Force must be alive with the vibration of the plant that connects with and enhances our emotional and physical well-being.

I grew up in Vermont with a love of nature, gardens and animals. I spent time in my 20's traveling in Australia, living in Key West, the Virgin Islands and Boston before settling in New Hampshire with my family in our Solar powered home. My husband Ryan is a bridge engineer, I have a 3 year old daughter named Juliette, and another one on the way! I am a stay at home mother which means Argan Republic is a business run in my studio, outside of regular business hours, at night and in the morning while my sweet daughter slumbers. Before founding Argan Republic, I spent many years in the hospitality industry but I didn't feel like I was making an impact in the world and I wasn't happy. I was burned out, sucked dry and bored to tears. My true passion has always been to create. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than turning something ordinary into something magical.

Ongoing detoxification and eating a clean, plant based diet is important to me, as well as using only the most natural products on my family, and treating animals with respect and kindness.  Launching Argan Republic was a no-brainer for me; I've struggled with hormonal acne since I was a teen and didn't start seeing a change until I ditched the numerous harsh chemicals, all hormonal birth controls and started using pure, natural oils. I thought... I need to tell people about green beauty! I need to get my hands on all the best oils and create some divine natural skin care that I can share with everyone! I craft every single product myself and by hand, with love. I want you to feel beautiful, because you are! This is my small way of contributing to your overall wellness and your beauty. I genuinely hope you love and enjoy my products!

In my spare time, I love to grow food in my garden, make wine, cook, exercise, watch movies, and refurbish old furniture all with my family.
