Our Journey

Chariot is a path, a dream, an amulet. It’s an invitation to go deeper. To turn off the radio and imagine your own stories, sing your own songs, and think your own thoughts. To not drift along but to go forward toward yourself.

Chariot creates ritual tools that support wellness on-the-go. We honor the reflective moments between point A and point B, whether you’re on the way to the grocery store, traveling to another country, or wandering across the great wide open.  

As you make your way through the world, we’re here to help you stay connected to your inner compass and Nature.

 

Born on the Road

The story of Chariot begins on the road, in between Point A and Point B - the place where good notions often arise.

Our founder Elisabeth was living nomadically, going wherever she felt called - Saugatuck, Santa Fe, Colorado Springs, Sedona, San Diego, Los Angeles, Big Sur, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Portland, Chesapeake Bay. 

As she traveled, Elisabeth collected local plant ingredients and tinkered with concoctions to scent her travels. And, during the long drives amid deserts, forests, and ocean highways, the aromas of these ingredients subtlety echoed in the air, anointing her journey and bringing her closer to nature. 

This inspired her to create ritual tools that help individuals stay connected to their wellness rituals and go further in their adventures.
