Love the smell. Works in my diffuser fantastically
I first bought a bar of y’all’s soap when I visited your store and have liked it ever since.
I’ve had to order more and they give you a little hand written note,which is awesome in my opinion. Thank you for a great product and great servie
This tea is really great. Makes me feel good and tastes wonderful. A real pleasure to have a lovely cup of tea such as this.
Using for sore muscles due to sports, physical activity and general life. Love it, definitely don’t want to run out!
lavender face cream.

soap stack 5 pack.
adaptive cacao. performance superfood.
I've finally found something that works for my face. I have tried so many different products to help my mildly acne prone, combination, lightly sun damaged skin. I have used serums before but they clogged my pores, gave me pimples and made my face shine, this serum does nothing but improve my skin more and more each day. I rarely ever have any pimples now and if I do they go away immediately after cleansing my face and applying the facial serum. My pores are never clogged, my face doesn't have any shine it just looks vibrant and blemish scar dark spots are disappearing. A little goes a long way works great under the eyes as well. I'm so glad to have found a simple and effective routine for my face.
I love this salve! It works perfectly in combination with the body serum providing ultimate skin hydration all do long. This salve soaks in nicely, smells great and definitely softens the skin. Everyday is a spa day for me after using Roots products!
Definitely soothes sore muscles
I love Roots Apothecary's stuff and this is the first tincture I've bought and I've only been using it for about two weeks and I already notice a difference.
I've tried several different "natural" deoderants and this is the best I've found. I used to have success with Schmidt's but they got bought out and the formula must have changed because after that it didn't work for me. I tried Native, Primal Paste, and something from Natural News. None of them worked so I'm going to stick with this one from now on.
I absolutely love this soap! My skin is sensitive and I break out easily, but not with this soap. This has cleared up my skin, giving it a smoother texture! My new go to!
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.

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.
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.
