Our Philosophy

rareESSENCE was founded on the idea that the natural world can bring us together. The premise is simple – flowers, plants and the pure ingredients that make up our products enhance our lives in countless ways. Our mission is to bring nature home and to enhance the life of every customer.

Artisan Crafted in Small Batches

Our products are hand-crafted in our Minneapolis-based headquarters, which affords us complete control over the purity and quality of every element of our products. From hand-pouring our candles to blending the oils for aromatherapeutic synergies to decanting our perfumes, honoring the ancient principles of perfumery, we ensure everything we create is a rare and precious gift from nature to you.

Committed to the Environment

rareESSENCE maintains a Certified Organic facility and constantly strives to reduce their footprint and examine ingredients and processes to lessen the impact on the environment. Committed to uncompromising environmental standards to lessen the impact on the environment, from the sourcing of essential oils and waxes to using FSC-Certified (Forest Stewardship Council) approved papers, and glassware containing recycled glass. As our commitment drives the choices we make, we hope to bring awareness to the power we all have as individuals by purchasing products which are safe and beneficial for our planet.
