Announcement   🐘 Welcome back to GGApothecary! I'm really excited to be able to get back into the swing of things, and I'm starting out by offering a line-up of my best sellers.

This time around you'll notice a shift to more ecofriendly packaging, including reusable glass jars and tins and less plastic! Instead of using a fancy labeling system, I've switched to recycled paper labels and printing them with refillable ecoink. No more bubble wrap, either! 🐘


🍃🍃 I am a certified and licensed aromatherapist with a background in Ayurveda. I'm also an apprentice herbalist. I handcraft all my products in small batches, locally sourcing ingredients when I can.

All of my products are formulated and created with organic and non-gmo oils and butters. I specialize in custom formulated hand creams and skin care items as well as cold process soaps.

I use only the best therapeutic grade wild harvest essential oils I can find and make my own fresh tinctures, hydrosols, and teas.🌿🌿

📞 I try to answer all convos and questions as soon as possible, but response times may be slightly longer in the evenings and over the weekends.

💌 Your items will ship via USPS!

Thank you so much for visiting Glitter and Gratitude Apothecary!

About

Always be present.

Glitter and Gratitude started with an idea. Late in 2014 I had this vision of starting something meaningful to spread happiness through gratitude. Of course, I had no idea what to do and no idea how to start figuring it out. Over the course of the next few months I was able to pull my ideas together and Glitter and Gratitude was born.

Glitter is sparkly, it's shiny, it grabs your attention. It also clings to everything and you end up finding bits of it when you least expect it. My idea was that when you caught a flash of glitter, you'd be reminded, maybe even just subconsciously, to be grateful and to be present, something I'm always very mindful of as a military spouse.

Glitter and Gratitude Apothecary was launched in September of 2015.

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.

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

Namaste!

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.

🍃🍃 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 whenever I formulate, cut, wrap, and package items.

🍃🍃 I am a certified and licensed aromatherapist with a background in ayurveda. I'm also an apprentice herbalist, working with a master for the last 12 months.

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!

**CUSTOM ORDERS**
I am not accepting custom orders at this time.

**GIFT ORDERS**
If your order is a gift, please let me know in the comments! I will include a custom gift card with your message.

**INVOICES**

❌ I do not sell 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. If requested, it is often possible for me to supply a small sample with a purchase, it depends on what you're requesting and what I'm able to find locally to send it in. Thank you for understanding!
