Meet Nikita


"With the arrogance of youth, I determined to do no less than to transform the world with Beauty. If I have succeeded in some small way, if only in one small corner of the world, amongst the men and women I love, then I shall count myself blessed, and blessed, and blessed, and the work goes on." William Morris

Welcome!  I'm Nikita - If I'm not out in the studio making and packaging your orders, you can usually find me gathering herbs by the creek or meadow of our little farm, homeschooling our 4 children or in the kitchen cooking and dreaming! 
Do you find joy in cultivating beauty, peace and wellness in your home? If so, you just found a new friend! I'm so glad you’re here!
Let me introduce my brand - 
My husband and I began our new skincare line, Whitewood Herbarie, at the beginning of 2022 - Our products are crafted in small-batches in our light-filled skincare studio here in Oregon, using our own organic in-house herbal extracts.
If you've been following our story for a while, you know that I'm not new to the beauty scene -
In 2016, I co-founded a skincare brand called MinErbs Naturals. We were seen on the shelves of Anthropologie around the country, featured in blogs and magazines, contacted by celebrities and once featured on the prestigious GOOP holiday gift guide.
I gained valuable experience during those years, but also felt disappointed with the deceptive marketing and vanity I saw in the so-called “green beauty” world. This fueled my desire to dive deeper into skincare studies, herbalism and holistic health to learn more about what skin truly needs to be healthy.
In July of this year, my business partner, mother-in-law, friend and mentor went to be with Jesus after a long battle with cancer. This began a new chapter of our lives - While we honor Simona's memory, my husband and I now continue to pursue our dream and family business together!
We welcome you to join us here at Whitewood Herbarie Skincare & Wellness 🕊 Nature is a gift and it's our great honor to to create healthy skincare for you and your families to enjoy.
With love,

Philippians 4:8
