About OHA

Our Founder

Martha Buldain

Martha’s journey for creating whole-plant, therapeutic skincare started in her early teenage years.


Martha Buldain – OHA Founder

At age 14, after a childhood that was fraught with chronic staph throat infections and tonsillitis, she became antibiotic resistant. At this time she discovered an intense interest in the study of herbs as a means of overcoming her condition.

Moving from Texas back to her home state of New Mexico around this same time opened a door towards natural plant healing. On a back road from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, she and a girlfriend ventured into a curio shop in Golden, NM selling antique glass bottles. The proprietor of the shop abruptly asked if she would like to study herbs. Martha said “Yes!”.  She was taught herbal wildcrafting, tincture making and the practice of plant spirit medicine.

Years later, Martha moved to the Pacific NW and became a certified massage therapist, reflexologist, aromatherapist, and trained as a Flower Essence practitioner. Through creating custom formulas to meet the needs of her massage and reflexology clients, aromatherapy students, therapists, and companies, OHA came into being.

Why OHA?

OHA utilizes whole plant extracts and oils in all of our product formulations. Our model reflects an understanding that nature knows balance. OHA’s goal is to deliver optimal skin health and radiant skin by bringing your skin into balance. Whole plant extracts and oils provide many of the same nutrients, antioxidants and natural sun protective benefits to your skin that it did to the original plant it came from. Whole plant extracts and oils retain a portion of their original life vitality and deliver benefits that go beyond organic and natural skincare.
