Note From Chelsea

Several years ago I became aware of the harmful chemicals & ingredients in the products I applied on my skin. The packaging claimed to be "all natural" or "organic”, but the ingredients list told a different story. I decided to do some investigating. Armed with the knowledge I had gained through herbal courses, I began to research what was behind each ingredient The discoveries of corrupt processing procedures was appalling. 

A seed of inspiration stirred within me, "What if there was an honest and truly all-natural skincare line?" This led to the creation of my own products. I began sharing them with family, friends and then for my friends' families. Their enthusiasm and support encouraged me to continue and to expand my line. Over time the seasons of inspiration, creation, sharing and enthusiasm blossomed into Skin Balm Apothecary.

Although it began with just me, you'll often hear me say "us" or "we". That is because I could not have started this online store without my awesome team! My family and friends have been priceless throughout this process and without them it would not be possible.

I also want to thank our amazing customers. This online store would not be the success that it is without you!

With Love,

Chelsea Higgason
