Who are we you ask?Jill Hansen and Carly Lodkey

We are Jill and Carly, the Botanical Me sisters. We have devoted our lives (well at least the last 9 years) to making the most luxurious, health conscious skincare products you will ever use.

The Botanical Me mission is simple:

Create healthy, plant-based products that inspire, heal and give back. We want you to live the best, healthiest and most beautiful life you can.

But that is just half of the story. While on our mission to make YOU happier, healthier and smelling great, we donate a portion of proceeds to support the fight against malaria, one of Africa’s biggest health challenges.

Malaria Prevention
Malaria is a life-threatening disease transmitted by mosquitos. EVERY 60 SECONDS,
A CHILD IN AFRICA DIES FROM MALARIA. All together, malaria harms over 200 million people a year. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

With our partner Malaria No More, we support
malaria prevention programs and treatments in communities

Malaria Treatmentacross Africa. Our donations go to fund education, mosquito nets, and medical treatments.

Why malaria you ask?

It is the ME to our Botanical- me is short for Malaria Eradication!

The Botanical ME brand was born in 2012 when co-founder Jill Hansen had a “light-bulb” moment. A touching conversation with her husband (a native of Nigeria and a malaria survivor) led her to want to join the fight against malaria. Excited by her epiphany, Jill teamed with her sister Carly Lodkey, and they used their 9 years of aromatherapy business experience to source, design and formulate the Botanical Me collection. They envisioned donations from the product sales could potentially save thousands of children’s lives, and help the quality of life of countless people.

Join us on this amazing journey.
