Olivia Bird brings a body-centered emphasis to SRB Botanica, through anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, soothing essential oils and analgesic herbs, in her unique multi-purpose herbals.
SRB is built on the love of family. Olivia Bird a gifted young actress and stunt woman in many entertaining television shows and movies.

The Bird’s take great pride in their multicultural and African ancestry. SRB Botanica carefully sources ingredients that hail from Africa and the diaspora as much as possible, in places like Haiti for example. The Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter, Abyssinian Oil, Argan (Moroccan) Oil, Frankincense and Myrrh are from the Motherland. While the base essential oil for many of the aromatherapy blends, Vetiver, comes from Haiti and Castor Oil is from Jamaica. The rest of the herbs and essential oils are responsibly sourced from across the globe. A special effort is made to feature USDA Certified Organic Base and Essential Oils.
