Born out of a love for herbs and the gentle nourishment they offer, Ula is an artisan apothecary that creates hydrosol mists, botanical perfume, and holistic skincare remedies. Ula is a meditation on plant alchemy, based on traditional herbal wisdom and inspired by ancient healing practices.
All of our products are carefully made by hand in our studio on beautiful Orcas Island. Our formulas are harmoniously blended for a truly holistic experience to stimulate our body's own healing capacity and align us in wellbeing.
Founder Elie Barausky is an herbalist, holistic esthetician, and student of the alchemical tradition. Portland Apothecary was her previous company and her remedies have been featured in such publications as the New York Times, Sunset Magazine, Food & Wine, Gardenista, and other international publications. She offers holistic facial treatments, and leads hands-on workshops with a focus on seasonal wellness, beginning herbalism and aromatic distillation.
When she is not giving treatments or formulating remedies, Elie is most happy out in the herb garden or hiking in the wild places. Through all of her offerings, she hopes to cultivate beauty, intuition and a renewed connection to the healing power of plants and the natural world.
