We strive towards “Sattva” (Sanskrit for purity), a concept in Vedic philosophy which refers to healthy, nutritious and clean products which purify the body.

We blend organic and food grade ingredients with therapeutic grade essential oils selected for their aromatic qualities and medicinal properties.

Our products are designed, manufactured, and packaged in-house and are free of toxic chemicals, parabens, GMOs, artificial scents, colors and dyes.

Our products are mostly vegan and never tested on animals. We make every effort to avoid inflicting harm on any sentient being or the natural world.

Each item is made by hand in our Brooklyn studio and distributed in collectable glass apothecary bottles produced with up to 40% post-consumer content.

We favor locally grown and harvested botanicals and donate a portion of each purchase to sustainable urban agriculture initiatives in the New York City area.

Michelle was really attentive and detailed. She answered all the questions I had in a knowledgeable way and made me feel welcomed. The venue was equipped with all the materials we could possibly need for our class and spacious enough for students to work. All the materials that were provided were adequate for the task at hand. There were even ingredients that are usually hard to find that I was quite happy to work with. The class was a very valuable experience and I learnt to make natural perfumes.

It was such an awesome experience, I had so much fun with my friends and I’m obsessed with the perfume I made! The teacher is really great too, she’s super informative and really helpful and very welcoming! I definitely recommend this place and will definitely be coming back. After smelling my perfume, my husband wants to go and make his own!

Michelle provided a wonderful experience for our corporate event that took place onsite after-hours. Communication leading up to the event was seamless and she led with a great deal of attention and care when discussing our interest and needs. All that attended have been raving about how much they truly enjoyed their experience. We're looking forward to working with Michelle and Bios in the future!

Context: workshop gifted to me by my partner because she knows I like to swing by cologne counters and check out offerings. Andbest gift EVER! Workshop: Michelle lead our workshop with much info, ease and aplomb! She started out with a few slides with information on perfume structure and scent categorization then quickly pivoted to passing around and smelling scent samples from their collection. We smelled a dizzying number of scents (I had to re-up on the mimosa 1/2 way through) as Michelle explained how each was derived/extracted; its characteristics  + more

DIY Perfume Making Class

Phenomenal class! I took my 14 year old goddaughter, 16 year old daughter her friend. In two hours we got an in-depth lesson on how to structure a perfume. We were able to sample more than 50 different unique natural essential oils and then craft our own signature scent in a pretty bottle that we even customized further with dried flowers and gemstones. It was such fun - it even included snacks and wine! Highly recommended!
