Perfect Mother's Day gift - even came in a decorative bottle.
Come close to Nature...
I started my shop after years of working in the botany/horticulture business. I love working with plants and soil... driving a tractor, turning compost, releasing beneficial insect, etc. Each day I come home with a huge sense of satisfaction with my work - but a huge mess as well! Coming home everyday with compost-encrusted hands and finger nails inspired me to develop a skincare line that was not only completely organic - but one that uses whole botanicals - not just essential oils. Garden Apothecary allows you to get gorgeous, while being sustainable, organic and actually seeing and feeling our fabulous ingredients.
Buying organic vanilla beans, harvesting wild mint and rose petals and cultivating herbs like sage, peppermint and wild violets inspired me to make a one of a kind product line.
Whether you own a giant farm or live in a fabulous apartment - we can all carve out a bit of time to pamper ourselves at home with wholesome, organic ingredients. My intention is to bring you a little bit closer to Nature.
My favorite things are Bourbon, my husband Matt and Redwood trees (maybe in that order). The things that keep me busy at home are making chocolate chip cookies, my four rescue dogs, chickens, honey bees and more potted plants then any sane person needs.
