The launch of Midnight has left me thinking a lot about the attraction of night blooming flowers. To say I am obsessed with flowers is an understatement and sharing this wonder is an underlying urge of Red Flower.
The Optimism of Dawn
There is so much depth that goes into seeing into someone’s heart through scent. Typically a process of creating scent is relegated to glass bottles and vials - at red flower and with Molly Hardie, the creative force and owner of Keswick Hall, the process of creating a scent started in the dirt and stayed close to the uncultivated forces of nature.
From Mothers to Daughters, Skincare Traditions
In a day and age when more moms are bringing their ever-younger daughters for manicures and pedicures, never mind facials, I am surprised to see how little knowledge is passed on. like lost recipes (or the importance of keeping them alive to tell a family story) self-care, as passed from parent to child, should be cultivated.
For centuries, poets and painters have romanticized the advent of spring – the parting of gray skies and budding of cherry blossoms; the freedom in baring arms and legs, raising faces to the sun. And the amorous awakening to love.
The sensory pleasures of Relaxing with red flower
Our daily lives can be chaotic.
Sometimes, we find time to take care of our work obligations, our home, our car, our pets, our loved ones, but forget to take care of the one who is taking care of all else: ourselves.
On wellness rituals and why we need them
When it comes to wellness, less is more. Our wellness rituals are simple and pure.
At red flower, we believe in the importance of creating the finest quality products in limited quantities. It’s vital to discover beauty globally to have truly transformative offerings, but it’s also vital to spend the time on our customers so they, too, learn to luxuriate in the sensuous delights that come from using a great product. And our specially crafted “hero products” are developed with the company’s philosophy of engaging in sustainable and environmentally friendly practices instead of mass-produced overconsumption.
Slow beauty rituals from near and far, in the language of nature
Most dear to my heart is the ritual of Beauty.
Through it all, I ground myself in rituals of comfort. Rituals that keep the worlds within our minds and bodies calm even when the various worlds we move in might not be.

Symbolism and design in Japan
I lived in Japan for many years; it is my home away from home. A Japanese aesthetic deeply informs much of red flower’s feel. In creating red flower japan, our first treatment collection, the design and graphics express the deep spiritual, emotional, symbolic, health, and ceremonial aspects of traditional onsen bathing. I have been to more than a hundred onsen, studied tea ceremony and ikebana, worked with the best graphic designers at shiseido and endlessly wandered the streets of tokyo, everywhere absorbing the beauty and power of “Japan”.
