What is an Herbal Apothecary?

In times of old, an apothecary was where all people went for their medicine. They dispensed herbs in powders or extracts, and sometimes as syrups. Often the doctors of the time would send their patients in with a receipt, and the apothecary would mix up the ingredients called for. It was, in essence, the original pharmacy.

Today, we have modern pharmacies and pharmaceutical drugs, but there are very few herbal apothecaries, which is a shame, because herbs were, and still are, a very powerful way of healing.

Their vision of a more holistic/natural lifestyle is amazing! And the care and thought for the customer is impeccable!


It's so important to have a local business where you have a business owner who not only loves what they do (it shows), but also has the expertise and a deep devotion to share this knowledge about what they do.


As the world we live in is more poluted and we are unknowingly bombarded by chemicals all around, having a natural alternative is wonderful.


I have known the owner since she was a little girl. It is so exciting to see her in the natural healthcare field and eager to share her knowledge in helping others.
