I started WWW-Apothecary using whatever ingredients we had in the kitchen and created from my dining room table.
When it comes to whats inside, I keep it really simple. The point is luxury feel, luxury experience without questionable ingredients.
Baking soda, corn starch, & citric acid are the basic ingredients for almost every single bath bomb on the planet. There are some alternatives however, for the hold & the fizz everyone loves, those are at the base.
I then I add a blend of coconut oil, avocado oil & argan oil to my base to soften the water as well as the skin. I use a water soluble emulsifier to beautifully blend the oils into the bathwater so they don't just pool at the top. Depending on the bomb recipe, I add Epsom salts, kaolin clay or cream of tartar to my bases.
And as for fragrance, I use my own blend of essential oils & natural ingredients found in your kitchen to give each bath bomb, shower bomb, scrub & body butter a story & a purpose. I will steep & soak, brew & whip my own blends together as well.
The body scrubs are made with organic white sugars, organic brown sugars, my blend of avocado oil, coconut oil & argan oil along with the individual fragrance blend of essential oils.
WWW-Apothecary started with a body scrub so they are a very special product.
The body butters are whipped together to provide soft yet non-greasy feel to the skin. cocoa butter, glycerin, shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, argan oil, sweet almond oil, organic aloe vera, marigold flower extract, chamomile flower extract, cucumber extract, lavender extract, rice bran extract & rosemary extract are all used to create this decadent touch and feel. Using a sprinkle of mica powder for color, I fold in each body butter's individual fragrance blend of essential oils to create the scent.
Bath soaks are a jar of deliciously fragranced Epsom salt & magnesium soaked salts, kaolin clay, jojoba oil and coconut oil.
Bathing dusts are my personal invention! It was during some experimenting that I cane up with this concoction. Bath bomb powder, magnesium soaked bath salts to help relieve sore muscles & bring your body into deep relaxation. I add the individual fragrance blend I come up with for each product & story and add either herbs, crystals or liquid gold or all three!
The essential oils are blended in distilled water and a binder. Simple, effective, natural, fragrant & lovely.
avocado oil, coconut oil, argan oil & sweet almond oil mixed together with the individual fragrance blend to create the scent.
Not in the mood for a bath? No problem. Shower bombs are essentially shower steamers. These are to be used for showers only. Do not soak in the tub with these. I make them the same way as I do the bath bombs however the concentration of essential oils is double the concentration in a bath bomb. Soaking in the tub with that high of saturation could cause skin irritation. They are perfectly made for the shower!
Body Washes & Liquid Bubbles:
aloe vera, witch hazel, whole milk powder, sodium lauryl sulfate, chamomile extract & the individual fragrance blends, sweet almond oil & a bit of mica powder.
Colorants & Shimmer:
I use vegan, cruelty free, environmentally friendly mica powders & shimmers. Good for our skin, the planet & beings & good for our drains!
