I'm back in California and it feels so good! One of the first things I did when I got home was slather myself in lavender dandelion body + bath oil. All orders placed while I was away are being shipped today. Thanks, plant babes! xo

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

We are happy to discuss wholesale opportunities with you. Since our products are all hand crafted in small batches, we generally do not process wholesale orders of over 50 products per order, but with enough notice, we can usually make larger orders happen too. If you would like to see our line sheet, please send us an email at: fromtheearthapothecary@gmail.com or send us a convo here on Etsy. Thanks for your interest!

Custom and personalized orders

Are you looking for a particular herb or a custom made infused oil? What about a tincture? Almost always, we can make these for you. Just ask! We are happy to help you get the medicine you need.

Care instructions

How you store and care for your herbal remedies can make a huge difference when it comes to the shelf life of our products. Generally, all herbal products should be kept in closed containers and out of direct light. When left in direct sun, you will lose much of the medicinal properties, and for some products (like oils or creams), they may go rancid or begin to mold. Always keep your herbal medicine in a cool, dry, dark place.

Certain products (like creams), can be stored in the fridge for maximum preservation and to extend their shelf life.

For our facial mists, aromatherapy rollers, and cleaning products, you should always shake well before use.

If you have any questions about any of our products, please do not hesitate to ask.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We put a lot of love into each order/package before we send it out.
If you would like your order gift wrapped (extra-extra special), please send us a convo and let us know. We will be sure to put a little extra love into gift wrapped packages.

90% of our packing materials and shipping containers are recycled material. We are still working on that last 10%.
From the Earth Apothecary was created to honor the great Mother, so we work hard to be sure that we do not create waste with our products and business practices. If you have questions (or suggestions) about our packaging and shipping policies, please do not hesitate to send us a convo. We are always happy to discuss ways to be more eco-conscious.

Are your products vegan?

Thank you for showing an interest in cruelty free and vegan products! Personally, I eat a vegan diet, purchase vegan clothing/shoes, hunt down the newest and most delicious vegan restaurants, rescue dogs, and use only cruelty free/vegan products in our bath and home (with the exception of honey and beeswax). What?! Yes, I know, beeswax and honey are not vegan, but I use them in SOME of our products for a couple reasons. Many of our product are vegan, and 100% of them are cruelty free.
We use beeswax and honey in some of our products because:
-It is amazing for the skin and for overall heath. The medicinal benefits are powerful.
-We only use locally sourced, sustainable beeswax and honey from a female beekeeper.

What type of herbal training or schooling do you have?

First and foremost, please know that there is no official "herbalist certification", even though some online schools may try to sell you differently. Herbal medicine is the people's medicine. It has been passed down for generations and is connected to place and tradition. Folk herbalism is learned through community and our honored elders.

As for my personal herbal education, I have studied at the California School of Herbal Studies in Forestville, Ca, taken multiple herbalism workshops, and read just about any herbalism book I can get my hands on. As we all are, I am a life long learner, and I learn more about herbs every day! I have learned the most through time in the garden and trial and error in the lab. Plants are our teachers.
