How my business started...

Over a year ago a friend of mine gave a little bag of homemade deodorant. I had been thinking about what I was going to give to my friends and family for Christmas and thought -why not try my hand at making a couple bath and body items? So that's what I did! I made a simple body butter, lip balm, deodorant, and sugar scrub. I gave some to co-workers and they said this is great!! You should sell this! So it got me thinking and pretty soon I had made a tester basket that I brought to work and was getting a lot of orders. My mom started taking it to the hospital she works at and I got even more busy! I have been working very hard for over a year now perfecting my recipes, getting feedback from the people I've sold to, as well as friends and family. I've done lots of research on essential oils, preservatives, oils, butters, methods etc. I hope to take some aromatherapy classes in the future as well. My goal is to make high quality, natural products that stand out from the rest. I love anything unique and try to incorporate that into my packaging, ingredients, and final product. If you order, I anticipate you will love what you purchase!

    Hi! Thanks for checking out my shop! A little about me... I love art, nature, all things natural and being creative. I guess it's not surprising that I ended up making natural body products -it feeds my creative outlet and I love it!

Welcome to Moe's Apothecary where we specialize in Handmade Natural Skin Care! In this shop you will find unique, natural skin care products made with high quality ingredients.

What we put on our body is just as important as what we put in. At Moe's Apothecary all products are 98-100% natural. I hand make everything in small batches to ensure high quality and freshness and use a wide variety of essential oils and organic fragrances. That's right, I said organic fragrances!! No synthetic fragrances, dyes or chemicals are used. I use a mild preservative (paraben and formaldehyde free) if the product requires it.

A lot of time, love and attention to detail is put into every product I make. Each item is one of a kind and makes for amazing gifts or to pamper yourself! :). Thanks for checking out my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I normally do not do refunds but if there is something wrong with your product you can message me and I will do my best to fix it.

If your item is damaged in the mail so that it is unusable, I will refund half (this doesn't include the shipping cost) or credit you on your next order.
I accept PayPal, credit/ debit cards as well as Etsy gift cards. If you've changed your mind after ordering, you have 48 hours to cancel. Once your order is shipped, I cannot cancel your order.
Please allow 10 business days for me get your order ready. These products are almost always made to order and it is just me making them. I will try to get your product shipped out before the 10 days but that isn't always possible since I do have another job in addition to this shop. If you need your item by a certain date just message me and I will see if what I can do :).

I use USPS First Class Mail (2-5 day shipping) that includes tracking. I do not replace items lost or stolen in the mail. If you would like your item to arrive sooner just message me about Priority Mail (2 day shipping) and I will adjust your shipping cost.

**If your etsy shipping fee is higher than the actual cost to ship, I will refund you the difference if it is over $2.00. If the etsy shipping fee is lower than the cost to ship, I will pay the difference.

**If you live in Huntsville, AL or the surrounding area I will be happy to deliver your handmade goodies to you to avoid shipping costs. You can either message/convo me before ordering and I can set up a separate listing on for you or you can order and I will refund the shipping cost.
