Nourish your Body with nature
We wrote a guest blog post about using herbs to make your own face and body scrubs for our talented photographer friend, Tara Donne, and she supplied the beautiful photos. Check it out here on Tara's blog!
Botanica Apothecaria is passionate about Traditional Western herbal remedies to help nudge the body back to balance. We also feel that self-care is extremely important and everyone should pamper themselves without guilt. There are wellness rituals with holistic products that we can do that can revitalize us from the craziness of everyday, such as taking a bath with a luxurious oil or giving ourselves a mini facial with a mask and steam. We'd love to discuss these rituals with you in a consultation where complimentary herbal product samples maybe given out when applicable. We've committed to making the best products we can. So we've combined herbs into indulging products by creating small batches that use only all-natural ingredients with the finest quality herbs. Our herbs are sourced from either organic or sustainably wildcrafted plants and always locally when available.
The skin is the largest organ we have! Everything you put on it will be absorbed and processed into your bloodstream. Makes you think, huh? With our products, slather away and feel good about nourishing your skin and body with herbs. Our mission is to create quality products that are free of questionable ingredients, that containing herbs that support specific body systems that we would love to share with you.
Our products are minimally processed to ensure the potency of the herbal constituents and include ingredients that are plant-based and organic whenever possible. They are vegetarian or vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, and free of the following: unnatural preservative, parabens, phthalates, fillers, artificial dyes, synthetics, toxins, and chemicals. No harmful ingredients ever! Why you ask? Synthetic ingredients are known to be endocrine disruptors, which mess with our hormones, as well as messing with our immune system, causing reproductive disorders, developmental disorders, environmental toxicity, and more. We should be able to use products on our bodies without worrying about added chemicals, preservatives, ingredients we can't pronounce, and without harming the environment. There are so many ways for you to get in your daily herbs! Salves, face and body oils, creams, sprays, bath salts, herbal perfumes, face or vaginal steams, tinctures, toothpastes, acetracts (infused vinegars), miels (infused honeys), oxymiels, elixirs, cordials, teas, other food-based products, and more!
All product samples are formulated by Clinical Herbalist, Lina Watanabe, and are handmade in small batches in the Pacific Northwest.
