Buzzy Beginnings

Hi there! I'm Eugenia Lagos, founder of Anthos Botanica. When I was pregnant with our second child, we moved to a house with a lush lawn...and a swampy mosquito breeding ground. I couldn't step foot outside without becoming the pest's next feast. Knowing I didn't want to put harsh chemicals on my body, I neurotically sought out natural solutions. That path led me to discovering the powers of Lemon Eucalyptus (OLE) and to launching this company.

Anthos: Greek for Flower Blossom

My grandmother's garden in a small village on the island of Kefalonia was a place of wonder for me as a child. She'd wake up before the sunrise to water her brimming basil plants, flower beds, and tend to her fig trees. Bougainvilleas scaled the walls and a pergola of grapes provided shade from the intense summer heat. Yiayia used the bounty of that garden in her cooking and also as a natural remedy for many ailments. Anthos is a nod to that magical garden oasis she so diligently tended.
