Our Story


I began making my own skincare products a few years ago when I discovered that I had severe skin allergies to the chemicals, additives, fragrances and synthetic ingredients that are commonly found in all skincare and beauty products- even the expensive ones! I have always had an appreciation for unique, natural and organic apothecary products and was absolutely in love once I started creating them myself. I began to research how to turn my passion for natural skincare and apothecary into beautiful, handcrafted products and before I knew it-            Happy Apple Apothecary was born in 2017. 

The name "Happy Apple Apothecary" was inspired by my grandparents- who's German last name literally translates to "happy apple". They lived a very "farm to table" lifestyle and that inspires each aspect of my business to this day. 

 

Happy Apple Apothecary handcrafts small batch, natural and eco-friendly soy candles, cold process soaps, skincare products and apothecary goods inspired by our beautiful, natural world. Our candles are hand poured in small batches using all natural soy wax, cotton wicks and only the highest quality essential oils and fragrance oils creating a long lasting and clean burning candle. Our cold process soaps are handcrafted in small batches using all natural (as well as sustainable, locally sourced and organic when possible!) ingredients making a soap free of chemicals, synthetic fragrances, additives and preservatives you can feel good about lathering up with! Our skincare products are produced using the same quality ingredients as our soaps and are formulated to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Each product is created to nourish your mind, body and soul.

As our products are inspired by our natural world- continuing to research ways to minimize our environmental footprint is extremely important here at Happy Apple. We use and will continue using recycled and recyclable packaging as well as strive to  source sustainable, organic, ethical, local and environmentally conscious ingredients. All of our ingredients are sourced from our beautiful, natural world- it is important to me as a business owner to preserve that beauty and practice care in what we use and how it impacts our environment. Not all of our products are currently 100% organic or certified sustainable, however, we will continue to research and source the very best ingredients and materials with a goal of preserving quality, our environment and moving towards a collection of goods that is 100% organic and sustainable.

A special thanks to my incredible mother and grandparents who inspired me to start this journey, They taught me the value in honest business practices, in hard work, in putting family first, in creating a product to be proud of, to be kind and caring and to always remember my roots. I am proud to be a "Happy Apple".
