Our Story


How it all started

Friends since meeting at the awkward age of nine, we've remained friends through all the awkward ages since. Over time, as our days became busier and more scheduled, we each recognized the need for more meaningful self care in our lives. We took that, combined it with our shared love of nature and crafting, blended it with our adventurous spirits, and came up with Curious Nature Apothecary, a line of botanically based, naturally aromatic products for body and home.

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
— John Muir


Our love of, curiosity about, and respect for the natural world guide us in every aspect of our business. Each ingredient we use is carefully selected for quality, sustainability, efficacy, and safety and every product is made by our hands in our Rhode Island studio.    

It's our hope that the goods we create will encourage others to take a few moments each day for mindful self care. Breathing deeply, checking in with and nurturing a sense of self, and recognizing and appreciating the present moment, can be very powerful things that go much deeper than smooth skin.
