Traditionally, an Apothecary was a drug store, shops that sold ingredients and the medicines they prepared wholesale to other medical practitioners, as well as dispensing them to patients It was the place people went in their rural towns to get medicines for their ailments. Saint Anastasia (died 25 December 304) is a Christian saint and martyr who died at Sirmium in the Roman province of Pannonia Secunda (modern Serbia). In the Orthodox Church, she is venerated as St. Anastasia the Pharmakolytria, "Deliverer from Potions".
Our Apothecary serves to educate and offer natural herbs, infused oils and beauty products free from synthetic, unnatural ingredients. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when given ingredients it can assimilate and utilize from the natural world. The products we make are good for the body, mind and spirit so the body may heal holistically. We do not make claims of diagnosis, cure or prevention abilities of the products we sell - as the FDA has required us to state.

THE ART OF AROMATHERAPY
Aromatherapy and essential oils can play a major role in your health if used correctly. By its name, Aromatherapy focuses on the sense of smell. Sometimes what we inhale can cause chemical changes in the brain, thus creating a relaxing or sedative effect, sometimes an energized or thoughtful effect. Utilizing essential oils use is preferred in this form as the oils are so highly concentrated, that a very little goes a very long way.
We currently carry the Aura Cacia line of essential oils. We always have the "essential" essential oils on hand - lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon, rosemary and grapefruit. Others we carry include frankincense, clary sage, lime, tea tree and meditation and tranquility blends.
We also offer workshops and classes on usage and safety protocols for the oils.
We are constantly educating ourselves so that we may pass along the best, most effective information possible.
