Stepping in to Red Flower is like entering your own cave of peace. Clean aromatic scents fill the eclectically decorated space. The story behind Red Flower is just as beautiful as the products founder and CEO Yael Alkalay has come to create. As a child Yael experimented with botanical extracts and watched her mother boil flowers and blend essential oils. She comes from a long line of Turkish grand Rabbis, Kiev musicians, Argentinian farmers and her grandfather was the first dermatologist in Bulgaria. All such rich roots contributing to the first seeds of Red Flower.
Behind each product at Red Flower is a ritual, something Yael has intentionally created through her love of land, spirituality and passion for wellness. Influenced by travels and heritage, items are created around cultural body care rituals such as Onsens from Japan and Hammams from Turkey. Botanically based, 100% vegetarian, cruelty- and paraben-free, Red Flower is a marriage of science and holistic medicine. What started out as six flower candles and two organic flower teas has blossomed in to a beautiful array of products that are both therapeutic and ritualistic.
