Our intention at Amborella Organics is for customers to eat an organic lollipop— with hints of roses, sage, rosemary, lavender, lemongrass, thyme, hibiscus and marigold— and plant their biodegradable stick, made from recycled paper in soil to simultaneously decompose and grow. The heirloom seed inside the lollipop stick correspond to the herb or flower inside our purpose driven candy. From the foraged flowers and herbs that shape our logo, to the turmeric and carrot natural dyes in our lollipops, Amborella Organics is a sustainable and eco-conscious company.
Combining delicious treats alongside natures beauty and sentiment brings this company full circle, and we find great joy in continuing to define what a seed-bearing lollipop is all about.

Growing up, I spent weekends at my grandmothers apartment and together we tended to her balcony full of plants. I can’t recall a single television show I watched or text message that I sent during those visits, but I will always remember the smell of her tomato plants and the anticipation of seeing which plants had grown week-to-week.
In 2011 I came up with the concept of housing a seed inside a lollipop stick. For me this was the perfect way to lure generations, both young and old back into the garden.

Culture, community, and connection are themes that have been a constant in my life and in my writing. The heartbeat or the "why" behind an action or an idea leads us on an incredible journey, if we're ready to listen. Before launching AO, my career as a journalist was doing just that-- discovering, deconstructing, falling in love with people's journey, and sharing this with others.
In route for an afternoon coffee one day while working on the road with Brennan, he shared his idea for a lollipop that possessed the ability to grow herbs and flowers. We decided then that we'd bring his idea to life and haven't looked back! Ideas are worthy of being celebrated. Sometimes they just require sunshine, water, and the very connection they plan to manifest for others to be born.
