Brimming with dried varieties found in both O’Donnell’s native Australian countryside and her upstate cottage gardens, The Quiet Botanist, whose entrance is tucked at the end of a long, flower-draped alley, is a reminder that flowers can be as moody as they are celebratory.
The fragrance of this beautiful botanical apothecary greets you from the street before entering into a wonderful world of dried flowers, botanical potions and teas. Established in 2020 The Quiet Botanist is one of The Shopkeepers Best New Shops.
One of our favorite finds from the beginning of 2020, the Quiet Botanist is a dreamy new haven for anyone looking to be surrounded by good scents, healing products, and homeopathic remedies. Headed by an immensely welcoming (and talented) Aussie turned Upstater, the Quiet Botanist is an exciting new addition to Hudson’s Warren Street.
And while Rebecca self-deprecatingly describes their current occupations as “shopkeeper and shepherd” (she owns apothecary The Quiet Botanist in nearby Hudson; Christopher has happily embraced farm life alongside photography), their collective well-trained eye and complementary aesthetic tastes played a key role in the home’s transformation.
