Hi! Welcome to Earthy Apothecary. This shop is the result of a handmade Christmas gone wrong-or right-depending who you ask. I was (and still am) working on making all handmade gifts for my family and friends this year. I love to craft, so I was knitting, beading and trying to figure out how to sew when I decided to try something new. It started with a lip gloss, then a sugar scrub and a body butter, then lotions. Before I knew it, I was on to custom order gift baskets. I seriously can't stop making delicious creations. So here I am, it's not yet Christmas, and I'm starting a business!

Custom Orders are always welcome! I get really excited about working with you to create something you'll love. I have gift baskets available at all price points. I also can make wedding or shower favors with custom labels.

During holidays I will create a few holidays specific goodies that would make great gifts. For this holiday season, I will have pumpkin pie gift sets (scrub, body, butter and soap) and most likely something peppermint.

If you are in the LA or OC area, I also do MAKE-IT AND TAKE-IT parties. For those unfamiliar, the idea is that I come to your house, you invite friends and I guide you through making your own custom creations. Prices vary greatly depending on number of people, and the product(s) you would like to make during your party. All ingredients are included in your party quote. Please message me for a quote.

I love it! Lotion is tough to use with a toddler around so I was super excited to try this. It works great on my lips and skin. I love the smell and it's super cute. It came in a cute bag and with a free sample. Thank you so much! I'll definitely be back to get more!! \(^ ^)/

Crafting Beauty for Christmas

Hi! Welcome to Earthy Apothecary. This shop is the result of a handmade Christmas gone wrong-or right-depending who you ask. I was (and still am) working on making all handmade gifts for my family and friends this year. I love to craft, so I was knitting, beading and trying to figure out how to sew when I decided to try something new. It started with a lip gloss, then a sugar scrub and a body butter, then lotions. Before I knew it, I was on to custom order gift baskets. I seriously can't stop making delicious creations. So here I am, it's not yet Christmas, and I'm starting a business!

I lovingly handcraft all of my items using the best ingredients and fewest additives possible. I love to use natural ingredients like coconut oil, almond oil, argon oil, shea and cocoa butters. Occasionally, I get some more exciting ingredients, like coffee butter or pumpkin butter, to spice things up and make some really special items.

I love experimenting with bold colors (from mica and oxide pigments, no dyes)in my lip products. I use a variety of scents in my body products, from fragrance oils to essential oils. Any product can also be made fragrance free. If you are sensitive, but would still like fragrance, please convo me and I can help guide you towards the appropriate scent and even make your product with half the usual amount of fragrance.

I do use a paraben-and formaldehyde-FREE preservative, when necessary. This helps keep my products free from dangerous microbial growth and helps keep my customers safe. My oil only formulations, such as body butters and lip products, may not contain a preservative. Bacteria, will not grow in an oil only environment, so please refrain from introducing water into your butters. It's best to scoop product out using a spatula (I will be including these with all my orders very soon). All lotions an scrubs contain a preservative, because they either contain water, or are used in close proximity to water.

I do not use chemical additives that are unnecessary. You will not find additives in my products that are in most commercial formulations. For example, an additives only purpose it to "improve texture" or "improve slip" it is not included in my formulation. I strive to make fun and enjoyable bath and body products that are enjoyable to use and as natural as possible.

Welcome to Earthy Apothecary! I strive to create fun, natural and low chemical products. I use natural base ingredients like oils and butters. Some of my products are colored naturally with herbs and clays and scented with essential oils, others are colored with micas and pigments (no dyes) and scented with synthetic fragrance oils (phthalate free). Please check each listing to make sure you are getting what you are looking for. None of my products contain additional chemicals. All ingredients are used according to FDA guidelines. I use a paraben-and formaldehyde-free preservative when necessary to prevent microbial growth and protect the health of my customers.

*oils are listed by type in the additional information section of this page*
