About Blue Willow
Blue Willow is a natural luxury skincare brand offering exquisite products formulated with CO2 extracted, full-spectrum CBD oil, and infused with carefully selected botanicals and essential oils. Blue Willow was born from a desire to create high-quality, effective and clean CBD-infused topicals.
The name Blue Willow is a tribute to our special home of Aspen, Colorado, by honoring Willow Pass, a magical mountain pass outside of town, where the skies are the richest of blue. Blue Willow also pays homage to the Arctic Blue Willow that grows in high alpine environments and is known to be the most serene of all willows.
Our Founder's Story
I’m Harmony, the founder of Blue Willow. I grew up the flower child daughter of an herbalist mother and cannabis advocate father in Portland, Oregon. My mom always said her favorite activity was 'digging in the dirt' and she used our garden's bounty to craft her legendary homemade salves, dry flowers for facials and potpourri and even blend herbs to make the most divine seasoning salts.
While I once found this lifestyle uniquely embarrassing (I was bringing organic arugula salads and apples from our orchard for lunch long before clean eating was mainstream), I ultimately embraced my upbringing and discovered my own personal commitment to the environment and sustainability. My mother’s love for making beautiful products instilled in me a deep passion and appreciation for the power of plants. Many years later, my career in marketing led to my obsession with finding clean, non-toxic products that aligned with my early-instilled values and fit with a modern lifestyle.
My relationship with cannabis is deeply personal. As a runner, I was never very interested in smoking but I had been using topical CBD-infused products for years to calm inflammation and soothe sore muscles after a workout. I’m married to a professional runner and it was easy to see that our aches and pains hurt less and healed faster when we treated them with topical CBD.
In late 2017 I became very sick and CBD became essential to my daily routine and recovery. I spent months in chronic and debilitating pain, constantly searching for relief. I have always been a proponent of alternative medicine and was wary of taking pain medication for an extended time. And more than ever I was focused on detoxing my body and avoiding the chemicals and toxins commonly found in skincare products. I was disheartened to learn that words like natural and clean often have no legal basis, and many CBD products lack beneficial ingredients beyond CBD or contain chemicals, preservatives or other ingredients I didn’t want to use. After trying almost every product on the market, I took a page from my mother and began making balms, oils and bath soaks. And so began my own line of CBD-infused topicals. These are the products that saved me when I was at my worst and now keep me at my best. Whether you are seeking to restore or maintain peak wellness, my hope is that these products will help get you there.
I am deeply grateful for my positive experiences with CBD and my intention with Blue Willow is to help others achieve their wellness goals through the healing powers of this incredible plant.
At Blue Willow we have searched meticulously for the best ingredients to use in our products. We combine top quality botanicals known for their healing properties and full spectrum CBD oil that together yield the most impactful, rejuvenating and restorative products.
