“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect” – Aldo Leopold
The Botanical Plate is a growing planthead tribe based in Singapore. With utmost respect for the ingredients that we forage, we focus on spreading botanical magic in the form of carefully curated, small batch, plant-based lifestyle & body care products inspired and thoughtfully handcrafted by medicine women and men from around the world, including our very own here in Singapore. We believe that with simple, natural routines derived from age-old plant wisdom and backed up by powerful science, we can find effective and more meaningful ways to take care of mother earth and ourselves, just like how our ancestors did in the olden days— think tribal mamas or our very own grandmothers.
We’re all about encouraging locals to think more creatively about caring for their bodies, to understand the versatility of conscious living and in turn live a life that can restore ourselves back to an ultimate state of wellbeing (without the use of harmful resources), something we feel is much needed in today’s society.
Plus, caring for ourselves in this way shows positive self-regard, and isn't presenting our best selves to the day — feeling healthy, spiritually full and downright beautiful — a priceless offering we can make to the world? With our tribe growing in numbers, we hope to have you join us in the transition of stripping complicated lifestyle and body care rituals out of our lives and unapologetically swapping them for healthier choices, doing our part to make all the little, but important positive changes everyday.
Plant love and much more,
