Four Elements Organic Herbals is located on Jane Hawley Steven’s and David Steven’s 130-acre farm, set in the pristine Baraboo Bluffs of Wisconsin, and designated as one of the “Last Great Places” by the Nature Conservancy.
Certified organic since 1990, she still grows diverse species from which plants are carefully selected to produce herbal products from the fields, prairies and woodlands of the farm.
Located just one-hour northwest of Madison, freshly harvested herbs are handpicked at peak potency and processed at our dedicated facility to insure Natures constituents are truly represented in every product. The balanced formulas are intended to increase your beauty and wellbeing. And the energetic preparations will fortify your trust in Nature.
Four Elements Herbals began in 1987 as the pursuit of Jane’s dream to establish a family farm and continue her horticultural career while raising a family. After completing a B.S. in horticulture, she began specializing in the diverse qualities of herbs. She and her husband, David supplied stores with organically grown potted herbs and developed an extensive herb collection. Herbs became a way of life from cooking and crafts, to body care and healing. It is from tried-and-true experience that Four Elements products were created.
Our goal is to discover the alchemy of nature — simple and pure food for your skin. Each item comes forth from a precious element of the earth.
We hope you will feel the love and respect for our earth and its power as it flows from our gardens to you.

This national certification program requires farms to undergo annual inspection. To qualify, MOSA requires farmers to practice organic growing techniques in areas such as soil fertility and pest management. Proudly, Four Elements has been certified organic since 1989, and with MOSA since 2009. This means that we bring you only pure, chemical-free herbal products. We believe Four Elements products are the purest body care products you will find.
All oils used in our products, although not MOSA certified, are expeller pressed, an ancient Japanese method that does not use chemical for extraction. Our vitamin E oil is derived from the natural source, soybeans. We proudly use certified RSPO organic and sustainable palm oil.
Many people who are sensitive to perfumes and cosmetics find they can enjoy our products because they are very pure, and no artificial fragrances are used. All of our products are packaged in recyclable containers using recycled packing materials.
