Anit Hora left a successful career in the fashion world to study the science of skincare, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, and yoga. Backpacking through South America, she immersed herself in learning about the plant-based healing cultures of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, and Colombia. Her experiences with natural medicine and holistic health inspired Anit to lead a more pure and simple life. Mullein & Sparrow was born with the belief that its possible today to return to our natural health and beauty no matter where we live.
Anit grew up with the principles of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of traditional medicine. Mullein & Sparrow draws strongly on the self-care regimens of Ayurveda, with the belief that true beauty naturally arises from simple acts of regular self-care.
Anit founded Mullein & Sparrow based on her believe in simple formulas, the highest-quality ingredients, a committed vision, and impeccable aesthetics.

This rich cleanser is made from essential oils, various clays, and flours (oat, which cleans pores, and chickpea, which gently exfoliates) and has the consistency of pesto, still it doesn’t smell like basil but rather lavender mixed with Play-Doh. I can’t decide what’s more intoxicating: the super smooth, almost waxy texture it imparts on my cheeks after I rinse it off, or that divine scent. Who am I kidding? The scent wins every time – W Magazine, Editor’s Beauty Pick.
Body oils are part of my daily ritual, and I've fallen in love with Mullein and Sparrow's French Lavender Body Oil. In my magazine editor days, I would always pass on lavender-scented products because I just couldn't handle the scent of cheap lavender. Now, I slather Mullein and Sparrow's luxurious, high quality body oil all over every morning post-shower, and I cannot even begin to explain the calming effects it has on my mind during hectic mornings (I'm constantly running late- night owl over here!). It's also lovely to use in the evening during my wind-down ritual. When you find a company who sources only the best it changes your whole perspective on an ingredient- Kim Wallace, Kimberly Loc, Natural Beauty Blog.
