In the Beginning...

What started out as a few natural lifestyle changes for Ms. B quickly turned into a passion for co-creating with Mother Nature and Father Time.

With love, nearly 6 years ago Ms. Binford started casting plant magic. Using dried flowers, herbs & spices "Ms. B" was able to co-create whimsical healing products safe for nearly everyone. Simple & all natural, these recipes helped aid in her wellness journey. After experiencing great personal success she eventually shared her concoctions with family & friends. Thrilled to see the same healing results, this encouraged Ms. B to continue working with mother nature launching her now internationally known online apothecary, Binford's All Naturals.

With several lines for the Mind, Body & Soul, her products go way beyond skin deep treatments, but rather deeply heal and move the soul to connect with nature.

Up Close...

My products are a safe and effective way to utilize the healing and medicinal powers of Mother Nature and Father Time. Fast and effective, these plant matter concoctions have been used for centuries all over the world. Made from mostly organic ingredients, these extracts are lovingly created to help promote your health and wellness naturally.

Blessed with only the best intentions from start to finish, (I never work in the Witchy Kitchen while in a bad mood) the products I offer are infused with more than just flowers and herbs…LOVE fills every bottle.

All my products start out with organic flowers, herbs and spices sustainably sourced from small farms all over the world. These infusions are gently heated to extract the most medicinal healing properties from each plant ally. Unlike many herbalists, I choose NOT to use alcohol for my products. In my opinion, I find it to be a bit harsh and unnecessary aside from its shelf life giving properties. I also cater to many NA and AA folks who can’t use alcohol, even though you will find more alcohol content in a ripe banana than a dose of most alcohol infused tinctures. The glycerin I use is Organic, Non-GMO and sustainably sourced. It is NOT made from coconut or soy which many people are allergic to. This glycerin base works well to extract the water, oil and alcohol soluble properties from the flowers, herbs and spices, and when used properly, my products can last up to 1 year out of the sun and away from moisture.

Everything is prepared by me. I blend, mix, strain, bottle, label, pack and ship everything with love, care and attention to detail. Every order is made fresh as can be because I still make super small (12 units at most) batches of every product in the shop as I have since day 1!

Our Part...

Binford’s is a brand that tries to reduce, reuse and recycle for sure, but with any business comes waste…wasted time, energy and of course trash! Over the years some changes have been made, but if I’m being honest more could be done on my part and yours.

Our shop waste typically looks like cardboard boxes, plastic packaging, left over used sheets of labels and a few jugs here and there. All of this “waste” is recyclable, but just because something is recyclable in no way means it disappears. To reduce our waste, we buy what we can in bulk. This was not always easy, especially in the beginning, funds were tight so stocking up on bottles and herbs was hard to do. As our business grew, so did our ability to do more and be more which all businesses big and small should strive to do.

Two years ago, we invested in an inkless thermal printer which has reduced our waste on so many levels. We also find creative ways reuse many of our shipping boxes, often repurposing them to stock and store our ingredients and products. Speaking of products, we use recycled amber glass bottles and clear glass for all our offerings. The empties can be reused by you and I often tell clients how to make their own lotions and potions with their left over Binford’s bottles. We also minimize waste by using the same pots, pans, utensils and mason jars since day one and we use thin tissue paper to wrap and pack orders that can be composted by you.

No matter how much or little waste a business creates more can be done. In the future we have hopes of finding an affordable printer friendly hemp label. I have also been in touch with USPS urging them to consider a made from trash or biodegradable flat-rate pouch, but I am impressed with the fact that their pouches are recyclable and should not be placed in the trash by you the consumer. It’s important as a business owner to start these kinds of conversations with our merch providers. We can change the way big and small shops all over the world operate by initiating change when and where we can.
