Fern & Nettle: Where buzzy skin-care trends collide.
Fern & Nettle’s arsenal of aromatic soaps and body products is the antithesis of cloying. My initiation into the 13-year-old Bay View business’ line was through a 2015 addition – the essential oil roll-on, releasing heady hits of rosemary, lavender, rose geranium and tea-tree. It makes a baller mood-enhancer. Double it up with spritzes of lavender room spray, and your personal space will be a funk-free zone.
To an avowed Epsom salt user, Fern & Nettle’s rosemary-mint bath salts meet the need for an intense, muscle-relaxing tub experience. The company’s detoxifying clay and activated charcoal mask does a good job of absorbing excess oil, though the mixing instructions are vague.
Owners Jenny Aicher and Sarah P. Grandinetti have positioned their line in a refreshingly affordable realm, too – items cost roughly $6-$12 – and sell them at local shops like Hometown Established and at etsy.com/shop/FernandNettle.
