Handcrafted in NYC, Ebb & Flow’s artisanal products are smarter than the average bar – of soap. Plant-based essential oils are the foundation of these scents, which range from bracing (Brown Sugar Fig, Sweet Pea) to calming (Lavender Flowers, Chamomile Neroli). The candles take the same tack: natural essences in inventive combinations (like Tea Sage Clove Aloe). Ebb & Flow was founded in New York City by Rupal Bhinda, owner of One 16 Designs, who decided to get into the business after years of giving handmade soaps and candles as gifts to fashion industry clients. After the soap-seeking clamor grew too loud to ignore, Ebb & Flow was born: the hand-crafted, cruelty-free products are all wrapped in chic black linen paper and crowned with little dyed bouquets of flowers, making them delightful gifts to pass on to others – or to keep all to yourself.
