Welcome to the world of Frank + Cedar
BETTER. SAFER. SIMPLER. BEAUTY + HOME
Here, we believe that simpler is better. That nature can be just as effective, if not more so, than what's created in a lab. That less is really more when it comes to glowing skin and fresh clean laundry. That in the in the words of Aristotle, nature makes well.
In a world laden with toxic chemicals - where artificially created has become the norm, we're here to remind us all that nature, (along with each and every one of us) has it's own simple, powerful and abundant magic.

Hi, I'm Mary, a Minnesconnie mama to two boys.
I truly believe that nature has provided us most of what we need to thrive, and that self care is an achievable priority, not an indulgence that costs and arm and a leg.
Somewhere in our busyness we've forgotten that if we don't have our health, we don't have much else. It is impossible to pour from a cup that isn't properly filled.
Disheartened and angry with the toxic chemically laden, costly and empty promise personal and household care industries, I created Frank + Cedar to inspire and empower others to take charge of their wellbeing by switching to safer and better products, to prioritize self-care and love and to live with intention to
consciously create the life they imagine.
Frank is short for frankincense, and Cedar is short for cedarwood - two of my very favorite essential oils. Both boast a range of beauty and wellness benefits. They remind me of the peaceful northwoods where I spent my summers growing up (without central air, screens or technology - not even a telephone!
Quite hard to imagine these days, isn't it!?)
We only get one life. Why not make it beautiful, happy and healthy?
I'd love for you to join me on this journey!
Frankincense has been used to increase spiritual awareness and meditation. It is considered a holy oil in the Middle East and was used during ancient ceremonies to help improve communication with God.
Cedarwood was traditionally used by the Native Americans to enhance their spiritual communication, creating the symbolic effect of the umbrella protecting the earth and brining energy in from the universe - just as the wild animals would lie down under the tree for protection to recharge and rejuvinate.
