Updates

Because of worldwide packaging shortages (glass especially) we have to substitute bottles on a few of our products.
Due to COVID restrictions at my local PO it’s taking a few days for packages to actually be scanned in after they’re dropped off. This is due to limited man power and an existing backlog.

On Etsy since 2015

Always be present.

Glitter and Gratitude Apothecary was launched in September of 2015 after a battle with skin cancer. As a cosmetic chemist, I knew I needed to make changes so I left my job working with a local Italian brand and set out to start my own.

Each one of my products are 100% handmade, from scratch. Whenever I sit down to formulate I have a specific challenge I want to solve or a problem to fix. I blend each lotion, cream, balm, salve, and soap by hand filling, it with as much healing and meaningful goodness as possible.

I use only organic and nongmo butters and oils and as much locally sourced/grown/ and produced ingredients as possible and prefer to support other small handmade business to get my supplies.

I am a certified and licensed Aromatherapist with a background in Ayurveda and Herbalism, having worked with a master Herbalist in Southern Italy for three years. I have an extensive background in Endo and feminine health due to my unique struggles with the disease and have had comprehensive medical training in both the EU and UK and have a certificate in Cosmetic Chemistry.

I am fully licensed and insured and work out of a sterile studio lab!

Additional policies and FAQs
🍃🍃 All of my products are made with organic and non-gmo oils and butters. I use organic and locally source herbals and other additives whenever possible! I never use a premade base or cheap fillers, everything I create is 100% hand made and custom formulated. Each listing provides as much info about the product and it's ingredients as possible! For your safety I use an eco-cert preservative (Leucidal) in any product that is formulated with water to prevent bacteria, etc. You will often see it listed as radish root ferment or extract.

🍃🍃 Please note! Your candle will come to you freshly poured! Because it's soy wax, it needs to cure, so the longer you wait to light it, the stronger it will be!

🍃🍃 I use small batch, locally harvested or wild harvested essential oils, never a mass produced wholesale oil. My infusions are blended and let to steep two moon cycles or more.

🍃🍃 My hand creams will never contain artificial fragrance! They are packed only with the most beneficial ingredients possible. I use only eco-cert emulsifiers and thickeners and nothing animal derived.

🍃🍃 My soaps are lightly scented, nothing overwhelming. Their focus is, again, the amazing ingredients they're made with! They are never made with lard or any other animal fats or oils. Please be aware! The weight on my cold process soaps is approximate. They will continue to cure until they are used. The curing process is the water evaporating from the bar, so over time, they will become lighter and smaller, but not drastically.

🍃🍃 My shave bars are mild and irritant free and designed to give you the best shave imaginable. Once you've used a shave bar, you will not want to go back to canned foams. They are made with local ethically sourced lanolin, right from my local shepherd. The are formulated to give your legs a moisturizing close safe shave.

🍃🍃 I formulate all my skin care/facial products with the most sensitive skin in mind and never include artificial fragrances or comedogenic ingredients.

🍃🍃 All products are made in a sterile studio and I do use latex free gloves and a mask whenever I formulate, cut, wrap, and package items.

🍃🍃 I am a cosmetic chemist as well as a certified and licensed aromatherapist with a background in Ayurveda. I studied with an herbalist in Southern Italy for several years.

I am also a member of the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild. I am fully licensed and insured.

My products are 100%
✖ soy free
✖ paraben free
✖ SLS free
✖ palm free
✖ petroleum free
✖ cruelty free and never tested on animals, just the odd family member

🍯 I use a kosher coconut based vegetable glycerine from a nongmo source.

➡ PLEASE NOTE: Some skin may be sensitive to essential oils, no matter how mild they are! Please do a patch test before you use the product if you have any concerns or a history of sensitive skin.

➡ PLEASE NOTE: From time to time it me be required to substitute bottle shapes to fill new orders. Please note, this is a difference in SHAPE only, the actual volume and amount of product will be the same in the listing. I only order from one reputable supplier and they are sometimes out of stock on my more popular bottle shapes!

Most items are made as they are ordered in able to provide you the freshest and best products available, my processing and shipping times reflect this production time! Larger orders may required an extended processing time.

❌ I do not sell or offer samples. At this time it is cost prohibitive for me to source mini sized containers as it often costs more than a full sized jar. Thank you for understanding!
