About Us
Cosmic Tree Essentials grew out of founder and Nova Scotia natural makeup artist Beth Thompson's love for nature’s versatile and aromatic essential oils, extracted from plants and trees for use in cosmetics through the ages. We're named for the Cosmic Tree, a symbol of the interdependence of all life, and known for our luscious chocolate lipsticks.

Our small-batch blends of holistic skin and hair care feature pure and mindfully selected essential oils, hydrosols, plant oils, flower waxes and butters. Our Apple Orchard Shampoo and Conditioner are made with the aromatic essence of crisp, juicy, sweet Annapolis Valley Novaspy apples grown in the orchards of Suprima Farms by third generation apple grower Richard Hennigar, and enriched with horsetail distillate, pro-vitamin B5 and quinoa protein. Inspired by the natural beauty of Maritime Canada, our true-to-nature shades are our own unique blends of cosmetic grade minerals, free of synthetic lakes and dyes.

We're proud to be recognized as a Safe Cosmetics Champion Company by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Everything we offer is cruelty-free and vegan.
Cosmic Tree Essentials began with Beth's search for a natural alternative to mass market cosmetics. "I'm sensitive to the irritants in many cosmetics, particularly formaldehyde donor preservatives. I'd had a bad reaction to a mascara during my university years and developed contact dermatitis on my hands that was aggravated each time I washed my hair with mainstream shampoos and conditioners. While I was living in Vancouver, in my twenties, a friend introduced me to essential oils. I began signing up for workshops to learn how to make potted lip glosses and cold creams. Those early blends of essential oils and other plant oils and butters felt good on my skin—I haven’t had contact dermatitis since—and made me feel more grounded and connected to the earth. The vision for Cosmic Tree Essentials came into focus when I was visiting the Mayan ruins of Caracol in Belize. Our guide showed us a towering Ceiba tree and spoke about the significance of the Cosmic Tree for the Maya—a symbol of the interdependence of all life, rooted deep in the earth, its branches outstretched to cradle the heavens. I felt called to create natural cosmetics from botanicals—plant oils, butters, distillates, essential oils and extracts—to help others feel more grounded and connected to the earth through their personal care rituals.” We are committed to being as close to zero waste as possible and many of our products are packaged in compostable kraft sachets and paperboard envelopes and tubes. We offer refills for our loose and pressed foundations, concealers, blushes, bronzers, illuminators and eye shadows.
