thinker, maker, educator.
Owner, Yvonne Perez Emerson formulates and creates Make & Mary™ products in small batches in her Portland, Oregon studio.
For over twenty years I have been creating herbal remedies and formulas made with organic and wildcrafted ingredients. From the beginning I wanted non-toxic products that I trusted and that were made to address my concerns about wellness and the environment. I also wanted skin care products that made me feel and look radiant. Having thoughtful ingredients that moisturize, smell amazing and addressed anti-inflammatory issues have been key essentials in crafting the blends I make. Make & Mary™ products were originally made for me, but once I started sharing the formulas and people began experiencing the product, they wanted to take them home for themselves.
Making is good for my health. It is just one form of self-care that I rely on. Along with taking care of my body, making by hand nourishes my lifestyle and inspires me. I took this philosophy to heart when I started Make & Mary™ in 2016. What began as an opportunity to teach and explore the world of cannabis through art and design, blossomed into a lifestyle brand for the highly inspired. I am so happy to share this with you here today.
Always be making!
