HEALER Archetype Botanical Perfume
A collaboration between Alexandra Schueler & GATHER Perfume
“This is really why I made my daughters learn to garden—so they would always have a mother to love them, long after I am gone.”
―Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
The Healer archetype is one of nurturing and deeply rooted Earth connection; tending to all walks of life and nature with intention, with the aim to not only leave little imprint with her footsteps on the planet, but to mend along her path as she goes.
Blended by the incredible Ananda Wilson of GATHER Perfume, the HEALER Archetype Botanical Perfume is a tapestry of ancient healing plants; is soft and nurturing, calming and contemplative, yet still expresses layers and mystery.
Braids of sweetgrass, roasted dandelion, orange blossom, mitti earth and sacred aromatic herbs create a cloak of protective plant medicine and an aura of deeply healing scent.
Perfume comes in a 5 ml. cylinder glass bottle with a silver atomizer.
Fragrance Family: Green, Floral Fougere, Grassy, Herbal
Fragrance Characteristics: The Healer opens with malty notes of roasted dandelion and the unmistakable soothing smell of real sweetgrass. Clean, beautifully soft orange blossoms compliment the hay-like notes with an uplifting floral nuance, while bundles of sacred herbs; rosemary, white sage, frankincense; purify the surroundings and add to the invisible altar. Mineral notes give the feeling of sun warmed rocks by a river, while treasured woods hold deep roots.
Sillage / Tenacity:
HEALER lasts 2-4 hours, and varies depending on personal chemistry, amount applied, temperature and physical activity. Natural perfumes evolve differently on each person.
The HEALER archetype botanical perfume is a slightly gentler pure perfume extrait than the other archetypes. It is intended to enable a comforting, personal experience, and invites a more frequent sensory ritual of application. It is held in a base of artisanal botanical extracts.
Care: Store out of heat and light.
Packaging: The perfume arrives in a black colored box made of recycled material, with an informational card, sprinkles of dried herbs and flowers, presented in a reusable moss green, satin pouch.
Safety: We recommend doing a patch test upon receiving the perfume. If you know you are sensitive by nature, use the perfume on hair or darker colored scarves and clothing. The perfume may stain light colored clothing, as it is a blend of darker colored oils.
GATHER perfumes are 100% natural, artisanal botanical fragrances. They are always phthalate, synthetic, and paraben free. Handcrafted in small batches.

About Ananda Wilson
I am continually inspired by nature, trees, water, art, rhythms, dance, music, myth, and life phases.
Working with plant aromatics is my devotion and specialty; with a knack and nose for blending unique and highly praised, sacred, therapeutic perfume blends - both perfectly simple and evocative ones as well as deeply complex, sophisticated, and rich compositions. They are designed to elicit pleasure medicine, amplify intentions, catalyze sensory bliss, self care ritual, emotional support and seduction, and to ignite your imagination with a powerful terrain of scent imagery and narrative.
Natural perfumes' sillage and story varies widely depending on the blend. It may be strong, soft, last long or short, change over time, and respond to your body temperature and hormonal cycle. It is incredibly alive and responsive to each individual. Know that when you purchase a natural perfume, it is an intimate engagement in the wild natural world and will not offer the predictable, cloying, or forceful type of experience that commercial perfumes often do.
I invite you to anoint yourself with a fragrant prayer to your beautiful Self.
