Meet Birgit

Hello, I am Birgit, Maker & Founder of Winter 1884

"Wilderness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from" -

Terry Tempest Williams


At home in the woodlands, with a deep connection to mother earth, I impart the wisdom of my leaf-bearing friends into nourishing creations, empowering you to live a more natural lifestyle.

I love to create fragrances that focus on delightful aromatic combinations, allowing a spiritual connection to nature and a body ritual that can calm or energize. Many of the essential oils and potions sourced from around the world, evoke distant akashic memories and awaken unwritten desires that allow you to explore the spaces between the natural world and the ethereal. It is known that natural essences in just the right combination can transport you to another time and place; conjuring memories of extraordinary landscapes and experiences remembered deeply in the subconscious.

Let me accompany you gracefully throughout your day, with scents that are at once reminiscent of another world, yet deeply familiar.



Winter 1884, just like most indie brands is cruelty-free, vegan, and almost entirely organic. The well-being of Mother Earth is always foremost in our minds. We make it a point to use only a few carefully vetted suppliers that share our vision. We are so much more than just beauty; we constantly evolve to be kinder, more loving, and brighter human beings - just Glow

Our Manifesto

We believe in Mother Earth; the wellspring of all life.  We believe in the spiritual connection to earth, moon and sun as a daily ritual. As our ancestors before us, our relationship with nature is sacred. We believe in exploring the spaces between the natural world and that of the ethereal; indulging the senses in all that nature has to give, reminiscent of another world and time. We believe in gratitude and kindness to all of nature’s creatures. We believe that the relationship with our earth, with all life and with the energies of nature, should be a lifelong love affair.

We ask you to step outside and take a deep breath, reveling in the joy and miracle of abundant life on Planet Earth.

She was born Winter of 1884
