Happy Monday, everyone! On Mondays, we will be featuring a maker whose products we feature in our gift boxes. Today, I'm featuring maker Leyna Allred of Urb Apothecary in Santa Cruz, California. I personally LOVE this line of products, which are all cruelty-free, sls- free, synthetic fragrance-free, and free of chemical additives and preservatives.
Leyna grew up in rural Northern California and was perpetually digging in the mud, climbing trees, and imagining living off the land. With this penchant for natural living as kindling, an interest in the medicinal qualities of plants was ignited and bought every herbal book she could find, completely engrossed in the simple recipes for liver tonics, healing ointments, and cleansing teas.
She uses the power of herbs and botanicals and wanted to create products that were non-toxic. Believing in the healing power of plants, she includes them to daily beauty and grooming products. Every product is intentionally made in her studio in Santa Cruz, CA and she places the highest importance on sourcing materials from only the purest quality fair-trade, organic, and local suppliers, ensuring that each product is not only improving the life of the customer but also being socioeconomically conscious.
Some of the products that we love from Urb Apothecary include Rose Salt Soak:
Ancient Egyptians believed roses to possess powerful healing and aphrodisiac properties and as a timeless symbol of wisdom and beauty. This rose salt soak also has added detoxifying benefits!
Urb Apothecary Rose Salt soaks are found in the romance and roses and rosé gift boxes.
Other Urb Apothecary products featured in our boxes include: Baby Balm and Cuticle Cream Stick in the chic baby box!
The baby balm is a wonderful healing salve for both mothers and babies, and the cuticle cream stick is perfect for mothers who are constantly washing their hands! Both are herb-infused and non-toxic.
The gentleman box includes Urb Apothecary's After Shave Skin Salve, which is specially formulated with organic high-quality herbs, oils, and butters that soothe delicate skin while promoting cell regeneration.
We are thrilled to be offering these wonderful, plant-based, all-natural healing products in our gifts. Keep a look out for more great Urb Apothecary items in our future gift curations!
