Fat & the Moon
Zlata Baba Lip Paint
Zlata Baba is the title of Fat and the Moons latest Lip Paint. Join the sacred realm of adornment with this color fit for a Goddess. Embedded within the metallic red depths of Zlata Baba is the Spirit Medicine of Yarrow. Yarrow supports us in knowing, and sometimes upholding the edges of our energetic membrane. Knowing our personal territory, our bounds, gives us an empowered self awareness.
Yarrow carries the astringent wisdom- the annate knowing of when to be permeable, and when to contract.
The Slavic Myth of Zlata Baba
Zlata Baba, the Golden Hag of Slavic myth: she is sublime in her embodiment of the terrifying and brilliant aspects of Life. At times, she is the bringer of light in the power of tree-splitting lightning, at other times, through subtle shimmer that allows a potent glimpse of subtle forms. Zlata Baba is an oracle. She guides our hand in transforming the skills for survival into artful craft.
Zlata Baba illuminates connections between the human world and the cyclic ways of the natural world. As we receive the benefits of her wisdom, she must be honored with gifts. In this agreement lies one of her biggest teachings- reciprocity and balance. Give and receive, borrow and return, is the aerated flow of Life.

FAT & THE MOON | Plant Potions for your Bod Garden
Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking a natural alternative to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovative and simple products that are good for the body and the earth. Fat and the Moon started as an alternative to the toxic, mass production body care industry aiming to provide nourishing ingredients and nourishing messages of self love, and self care.
And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
She says, "Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’."
"I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon."
