Absolutely love this product, after struggling for years with wet patches this keeps me perfectly dry and fresh (even living in high humidity in Spain). Even better knowing it’s natural and safe to use. Highly recommended!

I bought these as presents for friends and they smell so gorgous. Came with really helpful instructions too. Packaging and presentation was beautiful and I will definitely be ordering something for myself!

I’ve never had beeswax candles before so these were such a lovely surprise when I saw them in the flesh. They are a work of art and I just sat and watched the candle burn, it was mesmerising. Beautiful quality and such a lovely subtle aroma.
An introverted kitchen witch
This all began with the search for a good, effective natural deodorant.
You see, the thing was, I couldn't find one that worked. There were some which smelt nice but didn't do much, the ones which made my skin itch uncontrollably and one which, rather inexplicably, smelt of bubblegum.
I was determined to find a natural alternative though and, following my quiet mantra 'nature always provides', I set about the task of researching and making my own. A few trial batches and some tinkering later and I had what I had always hoped to find - a simple, easy-to-apply, natural, EFFECTIVE deodorant.
The story of Totterdown Apothecary is a little longer than that though! Being an introverted sort and a quiet, mouse-like kitchen witch, I made the deodorant as and when I needed it and otherwise went about my business. For years! It was only very recently when a friend was going through the same frustration that I decided to pipe up. I gave her a jar of deodorant cream and she loved it. Not only that but she practically insisted that I had to start selling it!
By this time I had been steeping oils and making other skincare for myself in the dead of night and under a full moon (well, maybe not always, but it certainly paints my kitchen in a more romantic light) so I had plenty of tested products and ideas to play with and Totterdown Apothecary (named for the area of Bristol I live in) came into being.
I now hope to take my knowledge of herbs and their impact on the body a little deeper and create creams, lotions, oils, tinctures and salves to gently cure, heal and restore. Maybe one day I'll learn soap-making. I'd like that.
I am a maker of many things but all have a common core running through them - I am most satisfied when working with the Earth, rather than contrary to it. For this reason I only use organic, ethically-sourced ingredients for my skincare products.
