Announcement    Did you know there are over 21,000 pesticides actively used on the market? So what is the big deal with pesticides? What is all the hype about “Organic”?
The chronic use of pesticides that are found in, for example, your food, in your skin-care ingredients and a plethora of other sources, have been linked (i.e. a causal relationship, not a correlative relationship) to cancer, infertility, birth defects, developmental disorders, amid many other illnesses. A common ingredient used in conventional agriculture is glyphosate (C3H8NO5P), in the well-known: Round-Up, has been linked to many forms of Cancer -including lymphoma. Even if a company claims “GMO-Free”, they are likely not using purely organic ingredients (unless stated otherwise), which permits that company to use thousands of pesticides to help control the pests that are normally deterred by GMO-plants. So look for Organic, then non-GMO is always a plus, but the real game-changer is “organic”. This is why organic is so important.

Why is organic more expensive?
By eliminating the use of pesticides, farmers rely on man-power to tend to their crops. Thus, they do not fly planes over their crops and spray their fields with pesticides to maximize production at the cost of health. Is it worth it? I used to wonder this too, until I researched deeply into the subject, worked on several organic farms and was humbled when family and friends of mine were diagnosed with Lymphoma, as an effect of working directly and indirectly with pesticides. To me, investing in organic is similar to insurance. You pay more for higher quality, and this rewards your health in the long-term. I have worked hard to source pure, organic resources and to provide them at the most affordable price so that quality is not a privilege merely for the financially fit. I care about your well-being, which is why I hand-craft organic skin-care products and provide organic raw materials so that you may become a little better than yesterday.

Ava's Apothecary was founded on Organic, Non-Toxic, Cruelty-Free principles. Each item is held to High Standards and all of our organic products are formulated by hand in small batches to safeguard quality and freshness. Products are handmade to order with your best intentions in mind. Unleash the impeccable benefits of Organic, Hand-Made, Enriching, Body-Care products from Ava’s Apothecary.

Thank you for stopping by and for considering switching to the organic products that you, your family and your friends deserve. Your support spans far, as I often like to say “when you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance.”

I am also happy to make any custom orders for you! Tell me what you would like in a message to my shop and I will craft it for you, or provide you with good sources to accommodate your requests.

Video summary: JOY OF HAND-CRAFTING ORGANIC COCOA BUTTER LOTION -A Tutorial

Wildly Passionate about Holistic Health and Formulating Organic Handmade Bodycare Products so you may become "A Little Better Than Yesterday"

I am so happy you made it to Ava's Apothecary. I am the Ava behind the Apothecary. I am wildly passionate about science and plant medicine. I love chemistry, and I imagine you love chemistry too, you just aren't as keenly aware of it, for the world is chemistry. I love finally working up the perfect blend of ingredients and watching a recipe come into full fruition, yet similarly I enjoy the process of creation. More often then not, a recipe will fail if the temperature is not concise or the right pH is not used for the right preservative. That all sounds complicated to many and thank goodness there are nerds out there like me that enjoy delving into the many worlds within worlds that exist so that you, my cherished customer may receive a superb, organic (in both meanings of the word) personal care product that won't go rancid and will surpass the quality and efficacy of any product you can find in a brick and mortar store (incl. Amazon -most of which is drop-shipped from China). If you are ever unsatisfied with your product, you can return it (so long as it was never a custom order), no questions asked, you just pay shipping. That's how proud I am of the sourcing of ingredients and exact recipes, that have been fine-tuned over the years.

My products specialize in organics because I have a passion for organics. I've seen first-hand several loved ones develop advanced cancer from working either directly or indirectly with pesticides. I've seen local organic farms lose their land because big GMO, non-organic crops that resided in near-by cities shed some of their pesticides onto the organic farms (which is impossible to control whichever way the wind blows the pesticides onto neighboring farms) -thus, making a certified organic farm (a very arduous process to go through), non-organic and then shutting them down. Also be weary, something may be non-GMO, does NOT equate to Organic. To make something non-GMO is easy, simply put, non-GMO seeds are planted. Then someone who is non-GMO, but not Organic has thousands of pesticides to choose from to use. Perhaps in my younger years, organic seemed like over-priced food, goods etc…but having seen first hand loved ones fight Lymphoma due to direct use with pesticides and other forms of Cancer from indirect use, now in my older years, I understand what all the “hype” was about.

I have seen an essential creature to our planet -the honey-bee, rapidly decline due to the use of neonicotinoids ("neonics") (a widely used insecticide that closely resemble the structure of nicotine). Neonics act as a neurotoxin in honey-bees, thereby confusing them so much that they cannot find their home hive.

In the short, I am so passionate about holistic health, improving the livelihood of others and making handmade organic products. I hope to make this business a full-time job, and I’ve held strong to not compromise my values or the health of others for more profit. While I am not busy in the kitchen making organic goods, I work in a laboratory and I am in school aspiring towards a Business degree. I hope you absolutely love the hand-made goods you see here. Everything was made with joy, love and with your best interest in mind.

Experience this fine craft and a new level of pure self-care. You will find products unlike anything else on the market. Excellence, Freshness, Effectiveness Guaranteed.

Thank you for visiting Ava's Apothecary and my genuine thanks for supporting independent companies. I look forward to serving you.
