Our Story

Back Bay Botanicals is a family business located in the Southeast Alaska island community of Sitka. In this rich, beautiful country between the forest and the sea, our family sustainably harvests or organically grows most of the botanicals featured in our products.

All wild botanicals are harvested with respect for the plants and land. We carefully blend our products in small batches, using only the highest quality nature-based ingredients.

Back Bay Botanicals began while raising my family on Back Bay, in the remote Alaska community of Port Alexander.

We relied on the subsistence uses of local plants for both food and medicine. I developed my own herbal remedies for our family, processing them on my kitchen table and heating them on my wood cookstove.

Extended family and friends started using the products, and over time requests started coming in from other communities. Back Bay Botanicals became a business in 1986, and continued to grow when we moved to Sitka in 2001.
