BOTANICALS
From Brown Barn's own Tangleleaf Botanical Farm and other fabulous Organic Farmers.
Our Botanicals.
At the heart of all of Brown Barn Botanicals fine bath, body, and skincare products are infusions of beautiful whole leaf plant materials hand harvested directly from our own botanical farm. 

By sourcing as much of our own materials as possible, we can ensure that the botanicals used in our products are: 
  • True to name - they are the variety promised on our label.
  • Weed, contaminant, and pest free.
  • Hand cleaned and selected (only the best leaves and flowers are used!)
  • Fresh - they have not spent days, weeks, months, or even years on a shelf and have not gone thru stressful shipping. This means our botanicals are freshly delivered from farm to bottle and have not broken down from over-handling.
"Tangleleaf Botanical Farm" is the name of our botanical farm home. Our plants are grown using organic cultivation practices. No chemicals or synthetic pest control is used at Tangleleaf farm, making for some of the cleanest and purest botanicals in the world. Tangleleaf farm is preparing for the USDA Organic Certification process. We anticipate our farm being certified in four to five years. In the meantime, we follow safe and organic practices.

Because our farm is located in northern Wisconsin, we cannot grow every single botanical we desire in our beautiful formulations. When sourcing from outside of our own farm we opt for USDA certified (and/or NOP (National Organic Program) certified for ingredients purchased from Canadian suppliers). We have listed the country of origin under the individual botanicals below.
