Aster + Bay was founded by Erin Hammond in 2012 as an outlet to create self-care products while she studied western herbalism. Prior to that, Erin received her graduate degree in Architectural Conservation from the University of Edinburgh. It was during her study of architectural history in Scotland that she developed a love for traditional craft and the preservation of craft methods. Turning to a slightly different medium once back in the States, she began to investigate and study botany, plant folklore and herbal alchemy. Created in Erin’s Atlanta studio, we love that every aspect of the collection is made in house from formulating to designing products. Beauty with background. Sign us up.
