UPDATE: COVID-19
OVERSEAS SHIPPING: Please note with the current pandemic, overseas orders are extremely delayed. We are fielding lots of questions about packages. Some of our customers are experiencing delays lasting more than 3 months. In all cases, we have been diligent about working with the post office but there is only so much that we can do. The post office is currently operating at 20% of its full compacity. In addition, normal air and ship traffic used to move packages are cut in half meaning that where we had 5 planes, moving your package to you, we now only have one and sometimes none. Many areas overseas don't even have mail going to them at the moment. Please understand that your packages are in transit, even if it is taking forever, they are still coming to you. We thank you for your understanding and patience during these times. Please let us know if you have any questions and keep this in mind when placing an overseas order.

GENERAL SHIPPING: Orders ship every business day except when we are gone at our historical events. Orders placed when we are gone will be shipped when we return.

Located Overseas? Ask us to get a shipping quote for you! :) PLEASE NOTE: If your package is returned to us, we will contact you and give you the option for a product refund or have another shipping invoice sent out so we can reship. The customer is responsible for the new shipping invoice. We ship to the address provided, so please make sure your address is correct.

LBCC Historical Apothecary: Historical Cosmetics, Beauty Care, Hair Care and More....

LBCC Historical Apothecary started in 2010 with a dedication to nature, history, and our ancestors. Every apothecary product you purchase from us is swimming in hours of research and history- Plus they are beautifully earth-friendly and bennificial for you and your skin! Our passion is working with and researching historical recipes and the original apothecary and medicinal formulations to bring you high-quality natural and organic time capsules from history that you can use today!

LBCC Historical Apothecary was the very first historical apothecary to bring long-forgotten recipes and formulations back to our modern world. We strive to reproduce actual and exact cosmetic & apothecary recipes written down by our ancestors who only used natural ingredients. We made a promise to our planet and our ancestors that we would honor them using earth-friendly sourced ingredients that are natural and organic! If you love Naturally Organic Products and History this the shop for you!

We started with a passion in 2008 to produce high-quality historically accurate clothing using appropriate draping and hand sewing techniques. We provided our clients with unique bespoke historical pieces reproduced from originals. In our journey, we have worked with some amazing museums, forts, and many wonderful clients all over the world.

Since then we noticed historical communities were deficient in proper period-accurate cosmetics and apothecary items. In 2010 we changed our focus and our name.

In 2010, when our focus changed, we started to tackle ideologies and subject matters in these historical recipes which had previously been ignored, misunderstood, lied about, and mislabeled. Myths have become truth in our society and we are now working to educate and bring you real products from the historical record that are wonderfully natural, organic, and true to history. We believe giving people access to our past in a tangible way that they can feel, smell, and taste is indispensable. There are many ways to experience history and so we are proud to make natural beauty and apothecary products from these original recipes so that together we can honor our ancestors and bring a bit of the past to the present.

I have been studying plants, herbs, & historical recipes since I was a child. My Grandparents educated me on them & furthered a passion for natural and herbal history which was once a part of ancestors' everyday lives. Now I am able to use all I have learned and able to provide these historical recipes that were last made hundreds of years ago. Loved but not forgotten.

People think all historical makeup & apothecary products were dangerous, laced with lead and other poisons. We hope to dispel these myths and show other sides of forgotten history.

As the founder, I have always followed my heart and listened to my soul. I love what I do and know I'm giving back, keeping history alive, and making my ancestors proud.

Get back to your Roots! Be Natural. Live Historical.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Each product will have different care instructions. We feel most are pretty straight forward and are usually listed in the listing. If you have questions. Please Ask. Most products will have a shelf life of 1 year.
Note: With these recipes and products being all natural and organic as well as historical- they are prone to change consistency in varying weather conditions. That does not take away from their potency or their quality- it just means that it's a natural product without any chemical additives. Our products may melt. We can't guarantee what consistency they will arrive in during the summer months. If this happens- put them in the fridge and give them a stir once cool.
