Zero Waste Experience
"This we know: the earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
- Chief Seattle
Part of our mission as a waste-conscious company is to continually push the envelope with our packaging.
All of our boxes, wrapping, and bottles are meant for re-use.
Therefore you will find some distinctive qualities about our style - minimal labeling, ‘mummy wrapping’, and wax elements.
Designed to be multi-functional and beautifying.
Sustainability and a profound respect for life are ingrained in our operational tenets.
As such, we continuously strive to find and create packaging solutions that align with zero-waste principles, while still maintaining a certain level of aesthetic and meaningful user experience.
BOROSILICATE GLASS -
Our high-quality borosilicate glass bottles use ground glass closures and withstands intense temperature changes, so that after you have finished your oils, you can easily boil to clean and reuse the bottle.
WOODEN BOXES -
Our wooden boxes are made from Paulownia wood, called Kiri in Japanese, a very fast growing hardwood that has been used in Japanese ceramic gifting for centuries. We hope that you will find a reuse for it whether it be re-gifting, to hold something precious, or finally to fuel a bonfire out in nature.
COTTON, LINEN + HEMP -
We protect our bottles and minerals with fabric strips to avoid plastic sheets or bubble.
Our printed elements come in an organic hemp drawstring bag that is food grade and can be used in the kitchen as a strainer for nut milks or soups.
Our artisan touch - the wax - creates a textural experience, and is a visual identifier of the Base Oil type contained, so as to limit the need for labels. The wax can be removed and melted down to a wax seal, perhaps, to seal a letter, or an oath…
Whether handcrafted cubes with wildflower seeds embedded, or sturdy tubes you can use to store your keepsakes, when working with paper - our preference is always compostable or reusable or recycled/recyclable.
Our small sample boxes are made of handmade, sun-dried, seed paper by rural craftspeople in the highlands of Nepal. It is made of a bush plant that does not die when cut and regenerates, and a variety of wildflower seeds. The water used in the process is reclaimed. You may put it under under a bit of soil and it will disintegrate within 1-2 weeks and the area should sprout.
Nebula's ceramic jar is a porcelain vessel to be easily re-filled, and we will be offering refills of the beauty powder soon. For the oils, we are also looking in to refill methods as our hope is that the bottle has a long life.
