Strengthening Foundations of Whole Body Health
organic applications that bridge traditional approaches with modern knowledge.
We believe the mind-body is amazingly resilient when given proper tools & nutrition. Our product development combines current understandings of the human physiology and traditional holistic practices. We believe common complications are rooted in some level of inflammation, nutritional deficiency, toxicity & sleep deprivation. We develop no bs formulas that provide fundamentally healthful value without introducing toxins to the body or environment.
Healthy skin is home to billions of commensal and symbiotic bacteria. When these microbes form strong cultures, they fight exogenous pathogens for resources. Building and maintaining a strong microbial flora plays a very important role in a healthy immune system and resilient skin.* Abandon the misinformation that all bacteria is bad.
Our skin care products never contain preservatives, alcohols, or broad spectrum bactericides. Even when organic, these ingredients can wreak havoc on your skin’s symbiotic microbial flora. Damaged microbial flora can result in over deployment of the body’s immune system. Habitual weakening of these primary defenses can result in chronic inflammation and weakened skin.*
Strong Lipid Barrier
Hydrated skin comes from the water you drink and a strong lipid barrier that seals it in. When this barrier is disrupted, hydration (water) can easily evaporate from the skin, causing dryness. Since the lipid barrier is an integral part of the skin's immune system and moisture retention, maintaining its' integrity is very important to maintaining optimal skin health.* Abandon the crazy idea that all oils are bad for your skin and cause breakouts. Your skin is intelligently designed with a lipid (oil) barrier for a reason. You just need the right oils.
Our serums and salves are zero water formulas, crafted with 100% extra virgin, organic and nutrient rich oils to supplement the lipid barrier for far superior moisture retention and nutrition.
luv this soap,lluv the ingredients,luv how I literally feel after a shower,🎶Can't get enough of your soap baby🧼🧼
immune boost tincture.
This face cream is very moisturizing and absorbs well into my skin. I even feel it the next morning!
I just started a new job that’s physically demanding and this stuff works great! I’m very impressed with the product so far.
I have been using this serum for about 2 weeks now and I have had several compliments on my skin!! People have noticed my skin appears more hydrated and clear. I like the smell of this product, and mostly, I love the way that it feels on my face. It is absorbed fairly quickly and leaves me feeling refreshed. I am so happy I found this face serum!!
Love the taste
On vacation in Colorado I stopped in your store and was pleasantly surprised. Your staff was wonderful and I had finally found a product I could trust and one I enjoyed using. I have been using the face wash and serum for dry skin for a couple of years and have noticed a drastic improvement in my skin. I also switched to the lavender deodorant and love it. I will continue to use this product and tell all my friends about it. Thank you.
I really like the tea
Just like all the other Roots items, nice item.
Love this deodorant. Only one that Keeps me smelling good all day.
Love it! Smells amazing and lasts for hours. Will be purchasing again.
I’ve been using it a week and I love it. I would like to use this rather than lotion and I always love getting packages from your company !!!
My grandson suffers from severe anxiety. This helps him really keep it under control. Highly recommended.
It suds so easy and makes your skin feel silky and soft. Love it
Like everything else we have tried here....works great, try it!
I love it. It is very nourishing and keeps my skin moist. I also love the charcoal face mask you sent as a gift!
I am actually excited to start using your product! I am finishing up my old product so it didn’t go to waste.
Love this tea!
It took me years to find an all natural deodorant that worked best for me and since finding roots - there is no need to search any longer. I have been using it in many different scents and have loved all of them -always on point. I have also used your soaps and tea - nothing but the best. Your company truly rocks!
Amazing stuff. :)
I. Love. This stuff. A little goes a long way, it is beautifully absorbed by the skin, leaving you soft & supple, but never greasy! Plus, the scent is perfect, not overpowering! (I alternate between Lavender & Mint and Grapefruit & Bergamot.)
Love this product!! I've been using it for 2 years.
So far so good. I am looking forward to trying other scents.
I’ve ordered young living oils for years but have found this essential oil to be just as legitimate and a fraction of the cost! The quality and fragrance is exceptional, I don’t use cheap oils from the grocery store, the price for this quality is unmatched! Personally I diffuse lavender by my bed at night and when I do I sleep throughout the night, I rub it on the bottom of my feet, put it in my toddlers bath, mix with other oils to diffuse, use in homemade bug repellent for camping, it’s my favorite oil ever and I’m happy to have found a place I can order from to always have it on hand and not break the bank!
Helps to fall asleep faster and stay asleep through night
This is my second order of the Inflammation tea. It is a delicious blend with turmeric. I drink this at night and it has started to help with my hip and shoulder pain. The orders arrive promptly and this last time I even received a handwritten thank you note with a sample of lemongrass soap! That product was wonderful as well. Thank you Roots Apothecary!
I’m so glad I found this tincture, with all the benefits of reishi mushroom, I can feel my body detoxing from it and am excited to have it in my daily routine now from shots of the tincture in water to putting drops in my coffee!
immune boost tincture.
Take it daily and love the energy I feel!
I cannot say enough great things about this soap. I have the worlds most sensitive skin when it comes to soaps, deodorants, everything, but this soap hasn’t given me the slightest irritation and the scent is so fresh!
I love the soap. It smells great and feels great on my skin. I will definitely be buying more when I start running low.
Maybe it’s Roots Apothecary Gentlemen’s Regime! What used to look like severe neck acne (aka razor burn) is now just a smooth, fantastic smelling clear neck/face. This stuff has changed my life and my wife will actually look at me now cause I look and smell like a mans man.
It has been a couple of years since I first tried Whole Body Apothecary products. I have noticed a drastic difference in my overall skin-and I notice a difference when I do not use it. I am very happy with this line of body care and the fact that I know what I am putting onto my skin. I will never switch to anything else.
I love your soap!!
The only deodorant that works for me the best. Thank you 👍😊
Always exactly what I need..!
We believe dysfunction is a result of imbalance and disruption throughout the body.
Most everyone in the natural health community acknowledges the body is not made up of independently acting parts. Instead, our mind-body is intimately connected and all systems have influence over others. For example, an exciting area of research and discovery in modern naturopathy is the mind-gut connection. So much of our health is influenced by conditions of the gut. Any respectable modern herbalist will understand this concept and formulate to improve overall gut health as primary course of action.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
The consumer holds incredible power to create change by voting with their dollar bills. When people stop buying products making empty claims and stop supporting environmentally damaging operations, companies will be forced to make a change or go out of business. That's amazing power! To begin participating in change, take a little time to research companies and products you like. Read ingredients instead of unregulated claims. Support responsible, clean label, transparent companies dedicated to the improvement of health and sustainability.
