Dominique Flaksberg (she/her) believes living in connection with the earth cycles is a better way to understand and heal ourselves. She created Circular Bodies to remind us we are a part of nature, and to create plant based wellness products that reconnect us with mama earth.
What inspired Circular Bodies?
About ten years ago, I decided to change my eating habits to avoid plastic at all costs. This food journey helped me to discover my local farmers market and start making most of my food from scratch. When I realized my bathroom products did not match the values I had created in my kitchen, I decided to learn to make everything I needed for my body with ingredients I could eat. Circular Bodies is the natural progression of this practice!
How would you describe Circular Bodies to a friend?
At Circular Bodies, we know we are a part of nature. We make high quality, easy to use home and body products that are organic, synthetics-free and 100% biodegradable.
Our products are handcrafted in small batches by me (Dominique!) to help people understand how simple it can be to use natural, sustainable products when taking care of our bodies and homes.
Living a healthy life can be easier and more accessible than you think. Our sensitive skin friendly recipes are here to help you make that happen.
What are your individual core values?
I value a life that is slow, conscious, made with hands, and surrounded by community support. Feet on earth and hands weaving projects and dreams, I believe in a local future where we take care of every place we travel to and honor its ancestors, its indigenous traditions and cherish with respect and love all the foods and medicines we encounter along the way.
How do your friends describe you?
Creative, passionate, sensitive, and strong.
How do you want to be remembered?
I hope we are remembered as supporting our community in their journey towards a slow, simple life. I hope we can inspire people around us to connect with the present and rediscover how little they need to nourish their bodies and souls. I hope we can help circular wellness become a part of everyone's day to day, so that we can honor the earth beneath our feet as much as she honors and takes care of all of us.
