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.
Not only does this taste AMAZING I noticed a great deal of cognitive focus as well. Fantastic blend!
lavender face cream.
I have super dry skin that likes to flake and look bad. But all facial lotions I have tried previously would make my face oily and/or cause breakouts. This cream helps with the super dry, flaky and itchy skit without making me oily or have breakouts. Love the smell too.
The smell: great! The makeup: totally gone! The skin: moisturized and soft! I love this cleanser.
Delicious in my morning coffee, as the site tells about! Although I don't find myself needing 2 or 3 droppers full. I use close to 1 dropper full. Bonus: it helps my menstrual cramps!
I have purchased the lavender soap several times and just love it. Amazing quality and fair price
Smells great, gives my skin the sun protection it needs, and hydrates well in Colorado's dry climate.
Absolutely love this product. Two months in and it’s made such a difference in sleep and all around mood and wellness.
face cleanse + serum.
I’ve been using citrusness for about 3 weeks. So far, I have no complaints and it keeps me smelling fresh all day.
I have had problems my entire life trying to find a deodorant that wasn’t full of chemicals and helped me smell good all day. I’m so glad I found this deodorant! I’ve been using it for a couple months now and I’ve smelled better. Plus no chemicals !
This has been my new favorite year round serum. Hydrates but doesn't feel oily and doesn't make me breakout.
Smells nice, prevents odors, doesn't ruin my clothes or irritate my skin.
This is great stuff. Because of its ingredients, it not only helps with sleep but aids to relax muscles and decrease muscle pain.
I am head over heels for the tea tree soap! I purchased this soap because of the awesome powers tea tree oil has, if your unaware of the benefits look it up you'll be amazed. This soap makes my skin very happy, it's no longer dried out and irritated. I normally use this soap with an exfoliating mitt but the bar of soap used alone has some mild exfoliating properties which is nice when I'm short on time. Using this soap along with the body serum has made my skin sooo smooth. 1 bar of soap last up to 2 weeks while using my exfoliating mitt. The soap smells solely of tea tree oil which I happen to like. It also lathers up pretty well. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with irritated skin or someone who works out a lot. I'd love to try the other soaps because I'm sure they are just as great but the tea tree version has that special essential oil I need to keep my skin healthy and happy.
I've used your serum for a long time and decided to try the face wash. My face feels sp clean and velvety soft afterward. I only wish I had tried it sooner. Thank you Roots, for another fantastic product!
The muscle rub definitely helped my aching knee after two days of skiing. Very strong odor! I didn’t find it unpleasant, but people around you know you have it on!
I take it every day. It gives me the energy to keep going and get things done.
This serum is awesome! I've used oils before but this combination is the best because it soaks into my skin very well and surprisingly keeps me moisturized for a full 24hr. I'm impressed with the little amount of serum I use and its ability to keep my skin moisturized that long because it's normal fairly dry and somewhat tight feeling (example I'd bend over and skin on my back would feel as if my skin over stretched and it was tearing, so it hurt a little bit). Another plus is being able to simplify my beauty routine which is a must when I have a 7 month old dictating my every move :D, I just take a shower, apply this serum to my wet skin and step out of the shower pretty much dry and definitely moisturized. So glad I came across Whole Body Apothecary, all their products are awesome (face cleanse, deodorant, face serum, soap). Thank you for creating all of these amazing products!!!
this is icy hot on steroids and better for your skin. I train anywhere from 5-6 days a week year round and Run my body through the ringer so for seriously sore muscles I need something that get in deep and soothes that ache. This stuff if powerful, long lasting, smells phenomenal and that tiny container lasts forever.
Love it 5 stars
I was having really intense headaches, I'm sure related to multiple things around me. I rubbed a small amount of the muscle rub on my temples, sides and back of neck. Before I even realized it, headaches were gone. So much better than popping 4-6 pills for headache relief. I take the container everywhere.
My wife and I both use this product and not only does it make our skin FEEL refreshed and cleansed it also has improved the appearance of our skin noticeably. We love it!
So very satisfied with the contact, and taking care of my needs. Thanks
Really Satisfied with service and product!!
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.
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.
