Eventually, life just got in the way. By the 1980s, my Mother and I were both working full-time. Now I had my own child and life kept both of us too busy to continue with everything we loved to do. She continued to crochet and do a few things. I focused on my career and went to culinary school to fuel my passion for cooking.
Flash forward to 2013. I started to develop environmental allergies to just about everything. Spring, and toward the end of the Summer, were horrible. By 2014, I was looking for more natural products. Everything had detergents in them or ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce or knew what they were.
While searching the internet, I came across a few people making their own soap. Still not having that much time, I purchased a few and remembered the soaps I made years ago. Now these soaps were beautiful with swirls and skin loving oils and butters.
As bad luck happens, I lost my job in 2015. I immediately started taking herbalism courses and making my own soaps and bath and body products. I started selling under Pure Perfection Skin Care, but felt something was missing. I then rebranded to Woodland Apothecary™. A name that embodies everything about nature, herbalism, aromatherapy and getting back to basics and wildcrafting, with a little fairy dust sprinkled in.
