ASH + Oak Floral began with an innocent love of flowers. Working in the service industry to support themselves, they experimented with floral design in their free time -- making simple arrangements and flower crowns for friends on special occasions, brunch parties and birthday picnics. As their understanding of the intricacies of floral design deepened, so did their commitment to their craft. They went from dandelions in the park to creating truly unique arrangements for weddings, holiday parties and more, and began to realize that the only thing more rewarding than spending time with flowers, was seeing how happy they can make their loved ones. Then, somewhere along the way, they thought "what's there to lose?" and Ash + OAK was born.

"To bring you the most effective healthy products, we search the world for the finest botanicals and minerals from land and sea. We use certified organic ingredients whenever possible, but if I find a small farm producing quality organics that is not certified organic, I will use their harvest because it is sometimes financially limiting for small farms to obtain certification. Some of our ingredients are wildcrafted, which means that they have been hand-harvested, with permission, in a sustainable manner.” Sarah from Salinity Studio.
