TASTE COLLECTION welcomes Clary Collection into our lifestyle boutique this fall- this brand was actualized by two young mamas Adriel Denae and Jen Auerbach. In their fancy Nashville barn, these two beauties decided to begin dedicating their lives to creating organic product, all starting at their very own kitchen table! Jen is a dear friend of TC’s beloved Sophie Sumner and we are so happy to have this brand in-store now!
We encourage you to explore their website at clarycollection.com to learn more about their unique brand, but to get you started-
Clary Collection was born out of Adriel and Jen’s friendship and the connection they found during the pregnancy and births of their first children – two souls who changed everything about the way they saw the world. These ladies began recognizing that the skin is the body’s largest organ and that it absorbs a great deal of environmental toxins. These ladies seek out truly clean moisturizers and balms, as they are the most essential items in their products for skincare routines. However, they found that the “organic” market is increasingly saturated with claims of purity. But more often than not, even organic skin care lines contain synthetic chemicals and preservatives.
Jen and Adriel’s transition into motherhood sparked many changes, one of which was a tuning in to their bodies as they started to function as givers of life and home to their children. This brought new awareness to their need for clean food, products and environments. They began to make small changes in the ways they consumed and worked to create new, healthier habits.
Sophie had the opportunity to ask Jen a few questions about their brand and came up with this adorable Q&A:
S: Who is the Clary woman, eg an icon/role model…?
J: The Clary woman is every woman. We are all our own role models.
S: What is one book that’s held an important role in your life?
J: One woman’s book who supported me from a far during pregnancy was Ina May. A midwife who wrote “Ina Mays guide to childbirth” a must have for expectant Moms!
S: Do you have a favorite Clary product?
J: Honestly, I can’t leave home without my Clary balm. It’s been my savior for 3yrs. On the run Diaper rash cream, bug bite relief + lip balm.
S: What was the last gift you gave someone?
J: The last gift I gave was this morning, and it was a large bottle of Clary oil to a customer in England recovering from chemotherapy treatment. The plantain has been aiding her extreme skin irritation.
S: What was the first beauty product you ever bought for yourself?
J: The first beauty product I ever bought was a red lipstick when I was 12 and I went out with it all over my teeth. My best friend couldn’t stop laughing and I didn’t know why.
S: Who are you going as for Halloween!?
J: This year I’m feeling Marge off the Simpsons.
