Create Something. The World Needs It!

Hello and thank you for stopping by our shop! This business is owned by my husband, Nick, and I - but you will mainly see me around here. :)

I have always had issues with my skin and have never done well with commercial, scented products or products that contain harsh detergent. That's led me on a long journey searching for natural products that I can use and that my body will like.

I am not a doctor, by any means, but I've found some things that work for me. I'm so happy we can now share them with you!


Our products contain no parabens, harmful chemicals, preservatives, synthetic oils, petroleum based oils, waxes, sulfates, talcs, SLS, SLeS, formaldehyde - or additives like oxybenzone, triclosan or synthetic colorants.

We are Eco Friendly, Eco Conscious, Fair Trade sourced & strive to be more sustainable in everything we do.

I use organic, high quality oils. I scent & color using herbs, spices, fine clays, essential oils, handmade extracts & tinctures - done the Old Fashioned way with a modern, artistic flair.

All my soap is handmade, using lye & oil - absolutely no additives (the unhealthy kind) or detergents.

I do use an organic hemp oil & shea butter based melt & pour for some soap and it is identified in my materials, for clarity.

I do have a demand for some scents that are not made organically, so you will find a couple fragrance oils that are Phthalate & Paraben free & some organic flavor oils, as well and they are identified in my materials. We only use fragrances that do not include chemicals deemed unsafe or require notification to CA consumers.

I hand infuse all of my own cold pressed oils. I do botanicals as well as herbs & spices and other concoctions.

I grind my own Frankincense & Myrrh & treat it in such a way that extracts the entire resin with the essential oil, creating a more complete profile of goodness.

I use these oils, extracts & tinctures in all my products - skin loving, healthy, no nonsense & good for you!

I do custom orders so if you have requests for blends, scents, sizes or products that you don't see - please ask me!

Thank you!

When purchasing your Custom Listing - clearly state on the Note to Seller when purchasing:

2. If being sent to recipient - Name & Address for recipient.
3. Do you want a card included?
4. If yes - what message do you want on the card?

Soap Care

Due to the handmade nature of our soaps, it is best to store them in a dry spot when not in use.

The longer they sit & age - the better they are and the longer they last!

What is the difference between Salve & a Lotion Bar?

In my shop:

Salves are more concentrated (with essential oils, infused oils) and are used more sparingly, on targeted areas. IE: I use Rosemary Salve on all my pressure points.

Lotion Bars are more for all-over body moisturizing yet still contain beneficial essential oils and infused oils.

You can use either in multiple ways (skin, hair, nails, bath, feet, hands & more!).

Check listings for specific uses & ideas!

I'm allergic to everything! Can I use your products?

I am not a Doctor and I have no way to identify if you have an allergy to certain ingredients. Please read ingredients carefully & ask your Doctor if you have any health issues or have skin allergies.

EU Customers

If you are from the EU - please message me for my Buyer Information, if needed.

Recycled Shipping Supplies

We try our best to use recycled materials whenever we can. We package everything with care!

Essential Oils

I research each oil I use for proper blending ratios and take care when mixing. If you have any questions regarding a particular oil, send me a convo!

Processing Times

Most of the items in my shop are Made to Order. This ensures that you will always receive the freshest preparations from the freshest batches of ingredients! I process your order, in the order received & will ship out in 1 to 3 business days (or sooner!). Once made, delivery time will depend on the ship method you choose.

Happy Shopping!

Etsy Shop vs Pattern Website

The items in my shop are currently featured in two places - my Etsy Shop & my Pattern Website (which is hosted by Etsy). I am currently testing it for my business.

If you found my item through my Website - apothotopia.patternbyetsy.com you can click on the links at the bottom of my items to be taken to my Etsy Shop.

All of the items are currently available in both venues. If you choose to purchase from my website - you will checkout via Etsy!

Please message me with any feedback or questions. Thank you!
