Forrest + Thyme Apothecary
Forrest + Thyme Apothecary was created from my love of nature and clean, non-toxic products. I was tired of buying beauty products and soaps that were filled with chemicals, many of which I couldn’t pronounce. I knew there had to be a better, simpler way to take care of my skin. Being a natural DIYer, I started researching and formulating my own cold process soaps. I have suffered from dry skin and seasonal eczema and psoriasis most of my life until I started using my own products. I started sharing with friends and family and soon total strangers were asking me for soap! I branched out and started creating additional products to satisfy my needs: a facial soap, mask, muscle rub, and face serum. I love to work with nature any way that I can and know that plants can provide added benefits to already great products. I am proud to say that I source all of my ingredients as close to home as possible, and many of the herbs are grown right here on my 6 acre homestead. My hope is to continue to build on my gardens at home, providing ingredients that are grown and harvested organically and to provide endless inspiration for new products that have yet to be born!
When I am not working in my apothecary, you can usually find me with a camera in my hand as I am also a fine art photographer. I love working on my homestead, playing with the ducks, chickens, and goats; tending to my bees, hiking in the mountains, and floating the Shenandoah River with my husband and our son.
