Meet the duo behind


Founded by Erin and Glen Hammond in 2012, the husband and wife duo formulate, design, package and ship Aster & Bay products from their studio in the Edgewood neighbourhood of Atlanta.

Aster & Bay as originally founded by Erin as an outlet to create self-care products while she studied western herbalism. Prior to that, Erin studied architectural history in Scotland where she developed a love for traditional craft and the preservation of craft methods. Turning to a slightly different medium once back in the States, she began to investigate and study botany, plant folklore and herbal alchemy. Not long after Aster & Bay was formed.

Despite a growing success and being featured in publications such as Refinery29 and Vogue, we love how Aster & Bay has not strayed from its roots. All products are still crafted in the apothecary tradition - by hand and with intention and care.


All products are made with raw plant ingredients only without the use of chemicals, preservatives or synthetics, 100% vegan and cruelty-free, made from organic and wild harvested ingredients whenever possible and packaged in recycled glass bottles that are manufactured in the USA.
