Our Story

We are women, moms, daughter, sisters and wives. We live and grow our families, foods and medicines here on the island of Maui. Our passion to bring vibrant healthy children into the world heightened our sensitivity to the types of products we were using on our bodies and inspired us to take a closer look at what we were buying.  We wanted more then just the word organic on the label.  We wanted fresh. We wanted safe. We wanted potent. We wanted skin care made with love and intention. We chose to get away from mass produced products encased in plastic. Thus began the process of creating our unique line of consciously prepared; vitamin, mineral and antioxidant rich blends of carrier oils, butters, herbal extracts and essential oils packaged in glass.

This island, it's love, it's mana (power), it's aina (land) and its people fuel our motivation to bring you the best of ourselves and our skills.

MBO is the seed that sprouted from our desire to share healthy, pure, safe and quality skin care products to enliven our sisters and refresh our own beings in the midst of what can be a toxic, harsh and free-radical riddled environment.
