Nurturing the soul

through design, craft, and plant medicine

Make and Mary was founded in the Spring of 2016 as way to create community and to merge design and craft with plant medicine.

Planting seeds and growing… Always inspired to live naturally, founder Yvonne Perez Emerson formulates health & beauty products made with Oregon grown, Full Spectrum CBD and Pure Cannabis Essential Oil. She curates and often leads workshops that make learning seam like second nature.



Unique offerings

Full Spectrum CBD for health & beauty. Our CBD products are made to nourish and relieve. From anti-aging serum to topical oils, we use all natural and organic ingredients in everything. Our CBD extract is sun grown in the Willamette Valley and has been third party lab tested to be free of pesticides and residual solvents.

Cannabis Aromatherapy. Our personal inhalers and candles are crafted using all natural ingredients and designed for good vibes and a calmer you. The cannabis essential oil has been lab tested to be free of pesticides, residual solvents and is non-intoxicating. Studies have shown that breathing in cannabis essential oil can help with relaxation, renewed energy, focus, and headache relief.

Heritage Craft Workshops. Our workshops are focused on the process of making by hand, and they are always highly inspired. Attendees range from folks who don’t consume to those that do everyday.

Lifted Yoga. Once a month we gather to nourish our physical bodies and state of mind. Our yoga classes usually take place on the new or full moon and are lead by some of Portland’s most respected teachers.
