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.
The newly airy, light-and-bright dining room is now anchored by a flower cart bursting with brightly colored blooms. In between tables, potted shrubs provide natural social distancing. At the bar, sprays of dried flowers, curated by The Quiet Botanist, have a distinctly feminine feel.
