Mullein & Sparrow
Mullein & Sparrow was founded in 2012 in Brooklyn as the life work of herbalist and holistic esthetician Anit Hora.
All of our items are lovingly made in small batches with the hopes of keeping alive a time honored tradition of simple remedies that have worked for centuries. We believe that beauty and health start from within, and that the best ingredients are found in nature.
We are a 100% natural and fully plant-based apothecary line.
Mullein & Sparrow was born from the ground up as a combination of love, experience, and expertise.
Born in Mumbai, raised in New York City, Anit grew up with the principles of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of traditional medicine. Mullein & Sparrow draws strongly on the self-care regimens of Ayurveda, with the belief that true beauty naturally arises from simple acts of regular self-care.
In 2009, tired of her career in corporate fashion, Anit took off on a year and a half journey backpacking through South America. There she encountered the plant-based healing cultures of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, and Colombia. Her experiences with natural medicine and holistic health inspired Anit to lead a more pure and simple life. Mullein & Sparrow was born with the belief that its possible today to return to our natural health and beauty no matter where we live—even New York City.
Upon returning to New York, Anit left the fashion industry to study the science of skincare, in addition to herbal medicine, aromatherapy, and yoga. Now a successful holistic esthetician and herbalist, Anit brings her health background together with her passion for purity and simplicity in design to launch Mullein & Sparrow Herbal Apothecary. Mullein & Sparrow is a whole body line, with the most basic and complete products for regular self-care. We believe in simple formulas, the highest-quality ingredients, a committed vision, and impeccable aesthetics.
