Embrace your inner swamp witch with this damp, earthy bog inspired natural facial cleanser. The Bog Witch is inspired by Jenny Greenteeth, a figure in English folklore. A river hag, similar to Peg Powler or a grindylow, she was often described as green-skinned, with long hair, and sharp teeth, who lurks in the upper branches of trees at night. Reeking of dirt, swamp water and tree debris, the Bog Witch can be very relatable for the witches not afraid to get dirty, spending their time digging & clawing through both their magic and lives. This skin care line was inspired barefoot & dirty, deep in the woods by the ocean. There is a profound want to live barefoot & dirty by the sea, but alas, we must also detox the skin!
