About

Apothecary Box is a new curated subscription box exclusively for small batch, handmade natural body products - with an educational element so that you can build your knowledge of holistic products box by box.

As huge fans of subscription boxes - and unique natural body products, we want to curate monthly boxes that make you feel good inside and out. 

Each month, we'll introduce you to a new round of vendors and the amazing products that they create. 

Products will range from the basics (like lip moisturizers, soaps, and candles) to things you've always wanted to try but couldn't quite figure out how to...(like dry shampoos, cleansing grains, and shower bombs)!

Each box will also include a sample of 100% therapeutic-grade essential oil with each box, and an info card explaining different ways to use, and the benefits / properties. 

Here's what we've got lined up for our Kickstarter debut Apothecary Sample Box:

- Just Relaxing Red Tea
- Handcrafted Mini Soaps
- African Shea Butter Lip Balm
- Eucalyptus Shower Fizz
- Tension Headache Relief Roller
- Clay Face Mask
- All Natural / Unscented Body Lotion
- Peppermint Essential Oil 

And here's what's in the full sized Deluxe Apothecary Box:

- Relaxing Red Tea
- Lavender Bath Soak
- African Shea Butter Balm
- All-Natural Lavender Aromatherapy Soap
- Clay Face Mask
- Calming Essential Oil Spray 
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil + Dropper
- Coconut Oil Lip Moisturizer

To keep production manageable for our vendors (remember: this is all handmade in small batches!), we are only making 100 of each of these boxes.

But don't worry - you can still sign up for "surprise" boxes with similar products, or one of our themed boxes - like the DIY kits or the "Man Box."

And if you're a maker interested in becoming a supplier for one of these surprise boxes (or any future boxes), you can sign up here: http://apothecarybox.com/makers

Risks and challenges

The creators of Apothecary Box have been launching and running successful online companies for almost 5 years - but physical shipping is new territory!

We've talked with lots of people who have done fulfillment services similar to this, so we think that by setting specific goals and limits, keeping open communication with vendors throughout the process, and making sure to cross our t's and dot our i's, we will be a success!
