“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
—William Morris (1882)
…Why not both? We believe your everyday items should be both useful and beautiful, especially when it comes to your skincare and beauty. Inspired by the timeless grace of the Victorian period, our products are thoughtfully crafted to make your everyday moments extra special.
Following in the tradition of the Victorian perfumery and apothecary shop, we're committed to crafting distinguished all-natural skincare, beauty, and other fragranced delights.
Our studio is nestled in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York where we blend the finest florals and botanicals according to our time-honored recipes to create little treasures designed to elevate your everyday moments.
A bit about me: As a little girl, I fell in love with the Victorian era and a piece of my heart has remained firmly planted in that time ever since. So it is no surprise that I am inspired by the Victorians even today. As an adult, I find myself drawn to the traditions of the Victorian apothecaries and perfumeries.
I am endlessly fascinated by the creative process of transforming botanicals into treasured items to nourish the body and soul. Willow & Birch Apothecary is my way of bringing beauty into the world by helping you feel your most lovely, most enchanting self.
