Meet Mo's Tonic

Modern Prairie is proud to support those who specialize female artisans like Mo Petkus.  Her company hand creates small-batched, apothecary treasures in the Catskills of New York.  

Scent has always been a fascinating and complex issue in Mo’s life therefore when she was graced with an opportunity to study aromatherapy with a veteran aromatherapist, Amy Galper at the NY Institute of Aromatherapy in NYC, she couldn’t refuse to walk through the door and explore what was ahead for her. It was through her study of essential oils, more specifically the impact scent and essential oils have upon the human spirit and body, that she became more and more interested in shifting her priorities and focus to this arena.

The notion of what we put on our bodies, also finds its way into our bodies really resonated with Mo and this awareness was revelatory on a few levels. In January of 2014, she made a commitment to herself that only therapeutic, organic or wild-harvested products would find their way upon her skin. In fact, she’s convinced that her overall health has been elevated as a result of her passion and products used in Mo’s Tonics.

Mo has made a conscious commitment to sustainability which means that everything used in her tonics does not come at the expense of something else – when Lavender is used, she plants more so that it does not impact the pollination cycle of the bees. Her thoughtful approach to her product, and our wellness as consumers comes through in the small batch apothecary goods that she creates – which we know you will love!

Go ahead, enjoy the outdoors…Mo’s tonic makes it so easy!
