About

Bumblebee Apothecary | Pure & Responsible Organic Handcrafted Skincare

Welcome! I'm Marisa, and I'm so glad you're here. Bumblebee Apothecary is a woman owned, home based business that is passionate about taking good care of our bodies and our earth.

I didn’t always enjoy vibrant, good health like I do now. In my late teens and early twenties I suffered from several stubborn health issues. I searched and searched for answers. Conventional doctors didn’t have answers for me. After trying so many different things that didn’t really help, I was getting very discouraged. Eventually I discovered exactly what I needed: a protocol that focuses on deep, permeant healing, using traditional foods and supplements that truly nourish the body. My life was changed. I was able to regain my health and I've never looked back. My healing journey also included learning about the immense toxic load that our modern world suffers from. In my efforts to heal and detox, I not only made sure I was eating the highest quality, organically raised foods and supplements, but also took a good look at the products I was using on my body. I knew that in order to support vibrant, good health, I should only use skincare and personal care products that are made with pure, simple, organic ingredients. I combined this knowledge with my love of creating things, and my skincare product line was born. Before long, I saw how much people loved my creations, and was inspired to offer them to a broader audience of others who also share this passion of wanting to take the very best care of our bodies and our earth.

The highest quality skincare and baby products are typically not available on a large, commercial scale. Individual attention to fine details, highest quality, organic ingredients, and loving care set my products far above anything commercially available. Everything I make is lovingly hand-crafted from the highest quality ingredients by me in Loveland, Colorado. I believe you will enjoy them as much as my family and I do. Thank you for your support!

Since childhood I've had an immense love for everything natural, organic, and lovingly handmade. Spending time on a small, family run organic farm, as well as my own family's homesteading adventures, taught me so much about love for the land, the plants and animals all around us, and good stewardship with the gifts they provide. Inspiration for my handcrafted skincare comes from an early morning sunrise over dew-kissed grass while contented cows happily graze lush pasture, a diligent bee harvesting nectar from sunflowers and lavender on a warm, fragrant summer day, and happy family members helping to create homemade goodness in the kitchen. It is a little bit of each of these memories and essences that gets packaged into each and every product that leaves my shop and is sent to my customer's homes. May you feel the same love and happiness!

My Promise to You:

Everything I offer here has been lovingly handcrafted by me. I'm passionate about taking good care of our bodies and our earth, and I'm excited for the opportunity to share my creations with others who share this passion. All of my products are well-tested and are things I love to use in my own home.

I periodically make small, high quality batches of each item, so that customers always receive the freshest products possible.

All my ingredients are certified organic when possible, and are completely natural otherwise. I try to use local ingredients as much as I can. Whenever local isn't possible, I source ingredients from responsible companies that I trust.

I use glass and tins and eliminate plastics as much as possible. Harmful chemicals can leach out of plastics into products, so I choose to use glass and tins as much safer packaging options.

All ingredients are clearly labeled, and none of my products contain any harmful chemicals, such as parabens, artificial fragrances, sodium lauryl sulfate, and propelyne glycol. I don't put these chemicals commonly found in modern personal care products on or in my body, and I don't sell products with those toxic ingredients either.

No animal testing is done with any of my products. Products containing animal products (such as beeswax or tallow) are obtained from responsible, non-cruel sources.

By purchasing products from my shop, you are supporting a woman owned, home based business that is passionate about taking good care of our bodies and our earth. Thank you for your support!

I try to respond to messages as soon as possible, once or twice a day. I have several small children, so this is usually in the afternoons and evenings, but it can vary.
