Our Story

The Quiet Botanist is a wild-crafted botanical apothecary located in Hudson, New York. We are a creative collective of like-minded souls exploring the intersection of nature, wellbeing and design. Our philosophy is rooted in the importance of establishing rituals and celebrating beauty in all forms. We believe that harmony is achieved when the world outside nourishes the world within.


Our storefront is refined to the essentials with products that we have sourced from around the world. Drawing on inspirations from apothecaries of a bygone era, wild-harvested Australian botanicals and overgrown European gardens, we bring you a retail experience full of discovery and a deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural world.


Join us. Stay for tea. Welcome to the world of The Quiet Botanist.



Founded by Rebecca O’Donnell, an Australian born Creative Director based in Upstate New York and Brooklyn NY. Her works encompasses luxury beauty and fashion brands. From concept and campaign development to product and store design. Rebecca's love of the natural world runs deep and is consistently her focus and inspiration throughout her work.

The Quiet Botanist was born out of a desire to slow down and listen. To be surrounded by beauty and botanicals. To create a space that welcomed you with scent even before you walked through the door.
