At Altar, we love our apothecary products. Every staff member in our store has their different assortments of favorites-- each with different notes they look for and different faculties imbued by the products. Some of us are looking for relaxation and self-care, others are looking for serious skin care solutions. We have staff members who only use pure, essential oil based products, and staff members who love extremely fragrant perfumes.

What we all share: pure, unconditional love for bath time. That special, precious alone time that we gift to ourselves every so often. To sink into our bodies, let our worries melt off of us, let our muscles decompress. I highly doubt I need to explain or extol the virtues of this activity, so I’ll spare you the romanticism.

What I’d like to share is some apothecary products that we are all really proud of. Each of these products is handmade lovingly in small batches. The keystone of body care products is that the larger batches (such as mass merchandised products) the less specific and concentrated the products tend to be. This is a major reason we encourage our customers to check out these brands.
