MEET AMBER BLUE
Amber Blue is a gift of love from Mother to her Daughter,
The love of an Herbalist in the cultivation of Natural and Organic remedies,
The love of an Aromatherapist in the distillation of spiritually healing experiences,
The love of a Healer in the mindful creation of zen inducing products,
The love that has produced a shared commitment to creating
100% pure and natural, hand-crafted treatments, as their gift to you.
Founders, Jen and Tara, always close, realized that they could celebrate their remarkable life achievements and enjoy the pursuit of their mutual passion for personal craftsmanship, by creating an artisanal, hand produced healthy beauty brand; natural and organic skincare and aromatherapy that derives its authenticity from the study of bio-dynamic farming and a collaboration with french bio-dynamic farming experts.
Amber Blue is the pure and simple “gift of love” from Tara and Jen to you.
DAUGHTER + CO-FOUNDER
Sitting at her mother’s knee, Tara had a ringside seat to the development of the natural and organic movement in America.

mother + CO-FOUNDER
Before she was a certified master herbalist and aromatherapist, she was an idealist; pursuing her Masters in planning and the study of utopian societies at the University of Massachusetts. A woman ahead of her time, positing theories of eco-tourism and sustainable development, as she studied Central American cultures, decades ago.
Settling down outside Boston and starting a family, Jen’s expertise in sustainability lead to an interest in natural and organic horticulture. She studied aromatherapy at the Boston School of Herbal Studies, and herbalism with Rosemary Gladstar, a pioneer in American herbal studies.
Since then, she has been active in herbal organizations, teaching and learning, as the rest of the world eventually caught up and realized the need for natural and organic everything in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
