Best Beauty Workshop
The Earthship is a store, apothecary, and gathering space that also hosts a myriad of workshops around plant-based ingredients. It’s the brainchild of Earth Tu Face co-founders Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm, who opened the boutique as a flagship store to showcase their popular line of luxury organic skincare products as well as to share their making process with the public out of the adjoining apothecary. Workshops include mead making, dyeing fabric for clothing, and making beauty products that use the medicinal properties of the plant world. They are often accompanied by snacks and a garden-fresh botanical cocktail. The boutique features an array of cool apparel, makeup, and unusual, one-of-a-kind home wares. Stepping inside is glorious: dried herbs strung between the rafters, gentle wafts of essential oils, and inspired styling.
