We're committed to creating small-batch, sustainable skincare and wellness products using good, clean, organic ingredients you can trust.


Pure and simple. (That's our promise to you.) 


GD/Botanicals founder Denise Benoit (or "Grandma D"—the GD in GD/Botanicals) has always been guided by the belief that whatever you put on your body should be pure and natural enough to put in your mouth – because it’s better for you and it’s better for the planet. After a significant injury left her struggling with pain and mobility issues, she channeled this principle into her own healing journey as she explored the restorative powers of calendula. This passion for creating soothing and nourishing skincare products has grown to include GD/Botanicals’ line of salves, face oils, balms, body butters, and aromatherapy roll-ons.  

Handcrafted by Denise in small batches with the finest ingredients to ensure the height of quality and freshness, her mission with GD/Botanicals is to create a line of high-performing, multi-use skincare formulations that are effective, sustainable and accessible to everyone. Because we believe the ability to nurture yourself with the best organic ingredients should not be exclusive. Clean skincare should be for everyone.
