Scrub A Dub Dub... March 15 2016

A New Way to Scrub (A Dub)

There are so many exciting things to share that I’m just going to jump right in. If you follow us on social media you know that I’ve been working on a new line for the Apothecary…SOAP! That’s right, I’ve been crafting the very best handmade cold process soap in microbatches here in the studio for a few weeks now. Our first two bars are ready to go with many more arriving in the coming weeks. To start off we have our original Secret Garden and a soap only scents of Orange Blossom + Thyme, Unicorn Daydream and Once Upon A Dream  Since we are just beginning this adventure we are introducing this new line at only $4.00 a bar. That is a $2.00 savings of the final retail price of $6.00.

 

Each bar contains Olive Oil (thought to be good for cell regeneration), Coconut Oil (all natural and produces a wonderful lather), Palm Oil (the largest natural source of tocotrienol, part of the Vitamin E family), and Mango Butter (thought to exhibit excellent moisturizing properties while countering the drying effects of bar soaps). Every batch is different in color and fragrance and is based on the inspiration of the day. Some will contain natural colors and fragrance oils as well depending on the scent. This much is true, it is a beautiful piece of artwork and a lovely addition to any sink. Our testers are in love with the scents and lather and you will be too. Pick one (or five) up today!

 

 

Just For You…

 

We have a lot of amazing customers that LOVE our products but for whatever reason (allergies, job, spouse etc…) can’t use products that are scented. Well, today is your lucky day. We will offer Sugar Scrub, Embalming Cream, and Soaps in the non-scent aptly named, Invisible. This unscented version of our embalming cream, sugar scrub and soap is for those customers that want to look and feel luxurious while being covert. Blend into the background while being soft and smooth, become invisible yet irresistible to the touch.

 

 

Shopping:

 

You can find us at Sparkle! Designs and Jewelry in Lawrenceville, GA and Agnes Scott ladies can find Black Ring Mafia on campus in their gift shop. Interested in carrying our line? Send us an e mail here for more info.

 

Be Kind and Share!

 

There is no greater compliment than seeing a great review of our line. It lights up our day when we’ve been tagged on your Instagram feed or mentioned us on Facebook. Small companies like us depend on this type of “word of mouth” advertisement so THANK YOU!! Tell your friends about us, Pin us on your boards and spread the Apothecary love. #ilovepaa

 

Peace, Love and Light,

Holiday Shopping Extravaganza!! November 24 2015


Let's Give Thanks! November 24 2015

So Thankful...

Anyone who meets me knows just how grateful I am for most of life. As I write this I have an overwhelming sense of joy and goodness that has just come upon me. Thinking back over the past month I am in awe of how amazing it was for the Apothecary. We were able to meet so many people, impact lives with our volunteer work and sales are increasing. I owe it all to our incredible and loyal customers. You are all such a special group from helping get the word out about Poison Apple to just telling your friends and strangers that notice how amazing you smell. So Thank You!! This month I'd like to explore ways we can give back to the world at large and next month I have something special planned especially for you! To start off we donated a box of goodies and the full line of oil samples with a gift certificate to a local non-profit preschool that will auction it off to raise funds for scholarships to give to local children. Follow us on social media to see where our giving spirit takes us next month.

 

Mini-Rollers Available

My goodness you guys these bottles are perfectly delicious. They are mini 2ml roller bottles that come empty for you to fill with your favorite scent. We can also fill them for you if you'd like. Empty bottles are only available on the main site due to Etsy's policies on selling handmade items (I did not make the bottles, that would be super cool though!). They slip easily into your pocket or purse and are perfect for travel. Get them now!

Cyber Monday

 

Cyber Monday is on November 30th and will have an amazing deal for you but you'll have to stay tuned to find out what it is :). Make sure to check your e mail the weekend after Thanksgiving for the details!

 

Holiday Gift Giving...

 

We have so many ideas for ways you can do most of your holiday shopping in our store. The mini combos are perfect for teacher and hostess thank you gifts, how about the mail lady or anyone you work with? The gift bundle comes in a super sweet stamped muslin bag and full sizes of your favorite scent. This is perfect for the family members you love most! Mini sized ZAZaZÅand creams are wonderful additions to anyone's stockings or to share with anyone that could use something a little extra special. Have questions or need help? E mail me and we'll figure it out together!

 

The End

This month's update is short and sweet. For up to date information regarding all things Poison Apple, check in on Social Media. Continue to tell people about us! The more customers we have the better we can serve and the more we can offer! Thank you all so much!!!

 

Peace and Love,

Welcome October! October 01 2015

BOOtiful October...
October is one of our favorite months over here. We are all decked out and ready for Halloween!!! If you check out our Pinterest page you will find some super fun ideas about how to make your own decorations that'll make your place extra spooky. We are a big fan of these "DIY Apothecary Bottles". Let us know if you try any of them out!
If you haven't, you need to check out our new product photography on the site. It came out BEAUTIFUL! You'll also notice that you can purchase a gift set that bundles full size products in matching scents and comes in the most darling stamped Muslin Bag. These are perfect for gift giving and the best part is that you don't have to wrap if you don't want to!
This decadent scent is going going gone! It is only available until October 31st (or until we run out whichever comes first) no exceptions. Make sure you stock up if you've been on the fence or considering testing it out.  Ooey-gooey and completely YUMMY! A fabulous Fall treat crafted with notes of cardamom, cinnamon, marshmallow, cooked pumpkin, Madagascar vanilla, buttermilk, caramel glaze, butterscotch and a hint of graham cracker.
Victorian Holiday is our signature winter scent. It is divine and exactly what you imagine the season to smell like. Unlike the Pumpkin Marshmallow, this will be available in all product forms; Perfume Oil, Sugar Scrub, and Embalming Cream. You may also purchase this in the gift set bundle. Luckily you won't have to wait as it goes on sale TODAY October 1 and is available through December 31, 2015. 

The Victorian idea of Christmas was not commercial, having more to do with food, and the exchange of handmade gifts. This traditional celebration was a time for friends and family to get together and show one another they care. Victorian Holiday offers clean green pine notes with a cool feel to it and the woodsiness of cedar complimented by mid notes of rum fruitcake with cranberry and soft florals as top notes.

Perfume Oil Sale!

Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale going on until October 15th. This type of discount almost never happens so take advantage! All you have to do is add 3 Perfume Oils to your cart then leave a comment in the notes section stating what FREE scent you'd like. If you forget we'll choose one for you.

 

Have a fantastic month friends. Please keep talking us up and sharing the love. We appreciate the support.  We are on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. Also if you are the owner of or would like to see the Apothecary line carried in a boutique near you send them our way and we'll answer all their questions. Farewell for now!

Ready to Fall in Love? August 18 2015

For as long as I can remember the season of Fall was signaled by the beginning of the school year. Now school technically starts in the middle of summer but I still can't stop myself from looking for moments to pull out my favorite cardigan or hoodie. As it turns out I haven't found a great opportunity for that since it has been record highs for weeks. The good news is that the kiddos are getting back into their routines and Fall really will be here before we know it. Without further ado let's get to the great stuff headed our way.

 

We posted this photo on Social Media and I swear I could hear the clapping and jumping going on around the world. Over here at Poison Apple that means that Pumpkin Marshmallow Embalming Cream will be available beginning September 1- October 31st. Make sure you order yours before supplies run out, once we run out the reign of Pumpkin Marshmallow will be over. 

Ooey-gooey and completely YUMMY! A fabulous Fall treat crafted with notes of cardamom, cinnamon, marshmallow, cooked pumpkin, Madagascar vanilla, buttermilk, caramel glaze, butterscotch and a hint of graham cracker.

 

I had the pleasure of collaborating with the band Stone Cupid based in Nashville on a scent for the group. It has been incredibly well received. If you happen to go to a show pick up a bottle. If not, you can purchase the perfume oil from us. Currently we do not offer the cream or scrub but that could change with customer demand.

 

STONE CUPID

The Stone Cupid perfume oil is the collaboration between singer Julie Christensen (of the band Stone Cupid) and Poison Apple Apothecary’s owner Jessica Vittorio. This unisex scent is mysterious in nature like an old book found in a shadowy bazaar yet new and exciting with the promise of adventure. Musky incense with fresh top notes of pineapple, citrus and lemon oil leading to a spicy floral middle of coriander, orange blossom, rose and ylang-ylang ending on an interesting clean nutty base note.

 Thank you for being such loyal customers. I appreciate the love over here. To help spread the word please share about Poison Apple on social media. Pics and reviews are incredibly helpful for small businesses like us. I can tell people all day how incredible our products are but it really means something special if it comes from you. Use #poisonapple on any platform. Also don't forget that we have "buyable pins" on Pinterest now so pin products from our store on your boards too!  I can't wait to see how creative and excited you get with this request. 

 

That's all for now friends. Have a great end of Summer, live it up and try something new.

 

Peace and Love,

Jessica

July...A little late July 18 2015

 I know I know...we are over half way through July and I'm just getting the newsletter out. Not only is it Summer but we've had one of our little ones preparing for and receiving eye muscle surgery. It was super scary for this mama (I mean she's only 2!!! and I love those sweet little eyeballs). Luckily she handled it beautifully and you wouldn't even know (recovery wise) that she even had surgery. So with that said let's get on with things!
Did you know that Sweet Almond Oil is a main ingredient in ALL of our products? It is quite an amazing addition to your beauty regimen.  One of the biggest secrets behind the use of almond oil for skin treatments is the high level of fatty acids contained in the final oil mixture. Fatty acids serve as a natural emollient for the skin, and can help the skin lock in moisture by forming a protective barrier. Emollients are especially effective for conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea.  One of the other reasons why almond oil is beneficial is because of its ability to plump and firm the skin. Almond oil works as a natural face exfoliator to help to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of healthier skin. For more information read the full article here.
We have a Flash Sale going on right now. There are several items deeply discounted for quick sale so we can make room for new product. There are limited quantities  so hurry and snag a favorite item before someone else gets it. The sale was set to end July 19th but will be extended until July 31st or whenever we sell out. THE BEST NEWS IS that two random customers that order between now and the 19th will receive a full sized perfume oil slipped in their order for FREE. That is an $18 value!!
Some Friendly Reminders...
                      
Happy Trails,
Thanks for your patience. Don't forget to check in daily on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the most up to date information, give aways and sales. Also don't forget to sign up for our newsletter. You get all the blog info first AND you get exclusive discounts just for being a reader.

Summer Fun! June 11 2015

It's June!
School's out for summer and we took a tiny break ourselves.  Most of you know I have four kiddos and a husband that's traveling the globe trying to capture all the best stories. Our whirlwind trip included the beach, two movie premieres and some horseback riding. If you're interested, check out this amazing film he produced with Director Andrew Morgan, The True Cost.
Shipping Rate Decrease
While the USPS is raising their rates we are lowering ours. Running a small business is tricky and calculating shipping rates could easily be a graduate program. After careful consideration and analyzing most rates have been lowered by at least $2.00. For example most orders using standard shipping with orders totaling LESS than $50 will only pay $5.00. Even better than lowering rates? Free Shipping on all domestic US orders over $100. It's always been that way and hasn't changed. Enjoy saving money :).
NEW! NEW! NEW!
We have several new scents available that I just know you'll adore. There have been several teases on social media but they are truly here. Below you'll find the names and descriptions. Can't wait to see which you fall in love with first!
 
According to Greek legend Alexander the Greats sister Thessaloniki was turned into a mermaid after death and took to living in the Aegean Sea. Any sailor that encountered her was asked only one question, “Is King Alexander alive?” To please her and evoke calm waters one must answer “He lives and reigns and conquers the world.” To give any other response would enrage her wrath stirring up a terrible storm and dooming the vessel and its occupants. Answer correctly and arouse a serenity about you with gentle breezes of salty sea air, lavender, lime and freesia.
 
 
    This ray of sunshine is the sassy southern lady that is ready to sit in the garden and gossip over a tall glass of lemonade. Boasting bright lemon, lime, and orange this is the perfect wake you up scent. ***only available in sugar scrub***
 
 
After her abduction by Hades, Persephones mother became enraged and made the earth barren and crops wither. It was pomegranate seeds that bound Persephone to Hades for one third of the year. The earth remained desolate during the four months of the year she was secluded to the underworld. Every year Spring is marked with Persephones return to her mother. This lush and creamy scent boasts a heavy sweet floral peony balanced by a sunny and tart lemon that lends a citrus zing and brightening effect much like Persephone’s presence on our world.
Click clack your high heels towards this mysterious and magical city. Your senses become ensnared upon arrival with notes of freshly mowed grass and hints of vanilla. The brisk air circles you as you embark on your quest for truth then success.
Wholesale Opportunities
We have had several vendors inquire about carrying our products in their brick and mortar store and nothing thrills us more! If you own a boutique or would like a local store in your area to carry the apothecary line send them our way (info@poisonappleapothecary.com). We have the Wholesale Sample Kit for those not familiar with our products (50% of the cost is credited on the first wholesale order).
Simply The Best...
Thank you all again for being simply wonderful! Without our customers we'd be nothing. Please feel free to get in touch if you ever have any questions. Don't forget to help spread the word on facebook, twitter and pinterest. We are also on instagram now too! 
Peace and Love,

Hello May May 04 2015

Greetings friends! Thanks for being so supportive and loyal to Poison Apple! I can't believe we are hitting our 6 month anniversary of being re-opened. Thanks for helping get the word out and please continue to promote us to your friends and family. Now on to news, we have some exciting things coming up!

Mother's Day

 

I am the proud mother of four children. This is a blessing beyond measure and I feel like I should be celebrating them for allowing me to be their mom. Make sure you call your own mother and let her know just how much she means to you. If you'd like to do something a little extra special consider ordering her a mini-combo, oil sampler or scrub to really spoil her. Use the code: ILOVEMOM for 15% off your order. One special customer that uses the mother's day code will receive a $10 gift certificate for FREE as a special thank you. 

Teacher Appreciation

The end of the school year is winding down and it's time to give thanks to the amazing teachers that have taken such good care of your babies. I suggest the mini scrubs and creams, they come in sets of four and are perfect tokens of appreciation.

Here We Grow Again...

Our new Spring and Summer scents will be available by May 11, 2015 for ordering. The highly anticipated Secret Garden and Temptation are the first to come but we have some exciting fragrances that we're announcing today here on the blog. I can't wait to see which ones you LOVE!

SECRET GARDEN

Imagine walking through a lush grove. This refined yet inexplicably simple fragrance is soft, green and fresh lending to a powerful fragrance all its own.

 

TEMPTATION

It’s not always easy restraining yourself from what you desire. This irresistible combination is unisex making it even more tempting. With exotic notes of amber, cinnamon, vanilla, myrrh, neroli and patchouli you will become the temptation of others.
 
MERMAIDS LAGOON (coming soon)
 
According to Greek legend Alexander the Great’s sister Thessaloniki was turned into a mermaid after death and took to living in the Aegean Sea. Any sailor that encountered her was asked only one question, “Is King Alexander alive?” To please her and evoke calm waters one must answer “He lives and reigns and conquers the world.” To give any other response would enrage her wrath stirring up a terrible storm and dooming the vessel and its occupants. Answer correctly and arouse a serenity about you with gentle breezes of salty sea air, lavender, lime and freesia.
 
 
MS. CAROLINE (coming soon...scrub only)
    This ray of sunshine is the sassy southern lady that is ready to sit in the garden and gossip over a tall glass of lemonade. Boasting bright lemon, lime, and orange this is the perfect wake you up scent.
 
PERSEPHONE (Coming Soon)
 
After her abduction by Hades, Persephone’s mother became enraged and made the earth barren and crops wither. It was pomegranate seeds that bound Persephone to Hades for one third of the year. The earth remained desolate during the four months of the year she was secluded to the underworld. Every year Spring is marked with Persephone’s return to her mother. This lush and creamy scent boasts a heavy sweet floral peony balanced by a sunny and tart lemon that lends a citrus zing and brightening effect much like Persephone’s presence on our world.

 

Wholesale Opportunities

 

We are looking for re-sellers for the Apothecary line. This is an exciting time in the company and we want to share the love of our products with as many people as possible. If you are, or know a store owner that would like the opportunity to carry our line, send them our way. We offer a sample kit that come with sample oils of our current line and 4 oz jars of a scrub and cream in matching scents of your choice. It costs $78 and 50% will be refunded with the first wholesale order. For more information please e mail jess@jessicavittorio.com

In Closing...

Thanks again for your support and encouragement. Follow us on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter! Happy May :)

Spring has Sprung! April 03 2015

 

Can you believe that it is already April?!? Here in Atlanta, spring is finally showing it’s beautiful face. Before you know it summer will be here and we’ll all want to look our best. I have SO much to share with you I can’t stand it so let’s get to it!

 

ATTENTION PARLOR AND SCORNED FANS

 

For a very limited time I am making a batch of perfume oil in Parlor and Scorned, our most requested former scents. I am only accepting pre-orders through April 15th. Bottles will be shipped by May 15th. I will only be making enough for what’s ordered so don’t wait or you’ll be very sad! Click here for the link to the store.

Scorned:

With each passing Valentine's Day, not much changes. At three in the morning she sits alone in the dead silence of the desolate room. She tightly clutches her cup of steaming tea, the only fuel keeping her going at this hour. A browning apple sits abandoned at one end of the table, long forgotten as all else but him has been. She scribbles furiously in her old leather journal, cursing him until the end of time. Time, after all, is the only thing she has.

Notes of black tea, red apple, leather, and aged paper.

Parlor:

The heady scent of pipe tobacco wafting through a large parlor with dark oak floors and imperial furnishings.

 

Spring Cleaning…

 

It’s been busy around here! New scents are coming and I’ve been doing inventory. Lucky for you this means clearance time. Do me a favor and take advantage of this ridiculously good offer on our clearance section. NONE of these scents are being discontinued. I am simply making room for fresh batches and the new scents. All are perfectly wonderful. Click here for the sale. Again this amazing offer ends on April 15th so hurry and get your savings on.

 

New Product

I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting the Secret Garden and Temptation release. We should be all set by the end of the month. I am simply waiting on the redesign of the labels to be finalized and printed. This new method will allow us to release more exciting scents much quicker!

 

With that being said when SG and T are released we will also open up a new offering of a scent only available in a scrub. This is perfect for summer and will likely only last through the season so make sure you stock up. Without further ado I will introduce Ms. Caroline.

 

Ms. Caroline-

            This ray of sunshine is the sassy southern lady that is ready to sit in the garden and gossip over a tall glass of lemonade. Boasting bright lemon, lime, and orange this is the perfect wake you up scent.

 

Team Harley Update

 

So far we haven’t reached our goal for Team Harley. It’s okay because we’ve decided to leave the campaign live for another month. Please consider this worthy cause. See March’s newsletter for more info on Cystic Fibrosis and the Great Strides Foundation that we are supporting. Remember all profits from the collection go directly towards Great Strides.

Reviews

 

Ghost of the Knoxville Girl Perfume Oil Samples were featured in the February Blissmo box. Check out what they had to say here. http://www.yogiapproved.com/product-reviews/blissmo-box-review-video/

 

The End

 

Thanks again for being so amazing and loyal! Please spread the word about our products, YOU are our best advertisement. Don’t forget we are looking for wholesale buyers that would like to carry the Apothecary line. If you know any interested parties send them my way. Have a Happy Easter and beautiful spring!

March Madness! March 02 2015

 

Ahhh March, you bring a smile to my face and hope to my heart. By now most of us are totally over winter...totally. So much so that Queen Elsa was even arrested recently for her devious wintry mix in North Georgia. Read more here. March has so much to offer, personally we have a slew of birthdays, there are a ton of basketball games to consume and St. Patrick's Day! Below are just a few of the things we have coming up this month, we think you'll agree they're pretty exciting!!

Team Harley



This year Poison Apple Apothecary has chosen to support the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in it's endeavor to find a cure for the disease. We have a personal connection to a beautiful young lady that has been living with CF and have decided to create this opportunity to do some fundraising towards her team. You'll notice a $2 price increase and that is because all profits from this collection will be donated directly to Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  We want to do as much as possible. This promotion will run through the end of March. For more information visit the Great Strides site here.

As you can see from the title we are supporting Harley who is a very dear family member. Her friends have been known to describe her as the type of friend who is up for anything at any time. She is always ready and willing to try something new and her attitude is definitely not one of a ‘sick person.’ At 28 years old, she fights CF every day with a positive attitude, and make something that’s so hard look almost easy. She was diagnosed at 7.5 months old and for the past 2 years, she has been asked by the LA chapter of the CF Foundation to speak at the annual walk. She usually talks about going to sleep-away camp as a child, studying in Australia as a college student, and moving from NY to LA to pursue her dream in TV—things that seem fairly standard in today’s day and age, but not when you have CF. CF has never stopped her. It’s only propelled her forward that much more, and she won’t stop until a cure is found for CF. Her dream is that  every young child diagnosed is able to pursue their dreams like she does. Please join us in the fight. 

Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research and drug development.

Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. But the lives of people with this disease are still cut far too short. We need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission of finding a cure and improving the quality of life of those with the disease.

 

New Season, New Scents...

Last month we announced two new scents due out this Spring. A few customers were lucky enough to get a sneak peek with their orders last month. Now you can purchase a sample to check it out yourself before the release at the end of March. Like us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know about the release date. 

Secret Garden

Imagine walking through a lush grove. This refined yet inexplicably simple fragrance is soft, green and fresh lending to a powerful fragrance all its own.

Temptation

It’s not always easy restraining yourself from what you desire. This irresistible combination is unisex making it even more tempting. With exotic notes of amber, cinnamon, vanilla, myrrh, neroli and patchouli you will become the temptation of others.

 

THE END

Thanks again for being such amazing customers. Sign up for newsletters for discount notification and to find out the minute new products are available.

Sugar Scrub...The Tutorial February 24 2015

There are several ways that we personally use the luxurious foaming sugar scrub. Below are a few of the ways we suggest.

Exfoliation:

Rinse hands and pat dry. Scoop out a small amount and rub in a circular motion. Slowly add water to achieve the desired amount of exfoliation. The less water you use, the stronger the scrub. Suggested areas include hands, elbows, feet, legs, arms etc... our base is safe on your face but irritation from the fragrance may occur so we don't suggest using it on sensitive areas of the body. Always test in a small area first.

Mani/Pedi:

Don't have time to go to the nail salon? Use the scrub on your hands and feet followed by our extremely moisturizing cream and you are well on your way to having incredibly soft skin.

Kids and their not so sweet smelling feet...

Let's be honest even some of the CUTEST kids have smelly feet and we can't tell you how many parents have praised how well our scrubs have helped rectify their stinky situations. Our children love being able to use the product, I'm told it makes them feel like a grown up!

Any Suggestions?

Let us know on Facebook how you like to use your scrub. Do you have a way that we didn't mention? We love hearing from and interacting with our customers.

Quick Updates:

  • We have a few Pirate Anne specials left. I'd hate any of her fans to be disappointed that they missed this amazing deal.
  • If you haven't already, sign up for the newsletter. It comes out monthly and will be featuring special discounts for subscribers.
  • Don't forget to join the conversation on Facebook. Share your Poison Apple Apothecary love with your friends and family...you know they'll thank you!

It's February! February 04 2015

FEBRUARY

 

February is my most favorite month of the year. It’s unique for being so short and boasts a lot of fun holidays like Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day. Let’s not forget about the President’s on the 16th too! The most important reason February is so awesome is because it’s my birthday month :). I am thrilled to get older every year, it means I’m alive! If I could, we’d celebrate everyday but I’m sure the hubby isn’t down with that and neither is the bank. We’ll see who’s paying attention to my posts because the first person (whom I don’t personally know)  that can guess the date of my birthday will get a little present from me. Just comment on Facebook and the first person to get it right wins.

 

VALENTINE’S DAY… A BRIEF HISTORY

 

Ahhh Valentine’s Day. I personally adore it because it’s an excuse to get chocolate and celebrate with loved ones. It’s a bigger deal with the kids than the hubby and I. We always celebrate with a fun dinner (heart shaped pepperoni pizza anyone?) and some treats. For all my single friends use this as an excuse to treat yo’ self! I suggest starting off your home mani-pedi with one of our sugar scrubs followed by our extremely moisturizing embalming cream.

 

Back to the history, did you know the most popular theory about Valentine's Day origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor's daughter signing it "from your Valentine”. Talk about a tragic love story!!! So BAM proof that Hallmark and Hershey’s did NOT invent this holiday for profit. Want to learn other fun facts about Valentine’s Day? Click here.

 

P.S. In honor of Valentine’s Day we have a code that will earn you 15% off all orders over $40

NEW SCENTS

 

I have been smelling all sorts of notes of late and have picked several to make their debut this year. I have two that I hope to release in March. Let us know on Facebook which you are looking forward to most. A few lucky people that order this month will receive a perfume oil sample of one of our new scents BEFORE it is released for free.

 

Secret Garden

 

Imagine walking through a lush grove. This refined yet inexplicably simple fragrance is soft, green and fresh lending to a powerful fragrance all its own.

 

Temptation

 

It’s not always easy restraining yourself from what you desire. This irresistible combination is unisex making it even more tempting. With exotic notes of amber, cinnamon, vanilla, myrrh, neroli and patchouli you will become the temptation of others.

 

 

THE END

 

That’s it friends! Have a spectacular February and as always hit us up on Facebook and twitter for the latest info. I am here for you so e mail or message if you have any questions. Don't forget about our Pirate Anne Scrub/Cream combo that is on sale. Only a few of these deals remain...25% off Whaaa?

 

Peace and Love,

Updates, Intros and Explanations Oh MY! January 17 2015

We’ve been open for over a month now and it’s time for some updates, introductions, and explanations. Let’s jump right in!
 
 
Same Poison Apple, New Owner
 
First off for those who didn’t know, Poison Apple Apothecary changed owners in May of 2014. My name is Jessica and I am thrilled to be able to continue the PA legacy. As soon as I found out that Angela was willing sell I knew that I’d be perfect to take over  and make sure customers get their fix of amazing products. I am the mother of four and the wife of a documentary film maker. I’ve been a teacher, photographer, video producer, and jack of all trades in my husband’s company. I have a wildly creative mind and support system that is unrivaled, this is how I am able to do so many things and do them well.
 
 
New Look, New Shopping Experience
 
We spent the summer perfecting the branding of the company. For anyone with a small business you know how vital this is to success. It was worth the wait to have everything perfect, including a proprietary website. This brings me to my next point, Etsy. Many customers wonder why we aren’t there anymore. The answer is simple and complicated. We love and appreciate all that Etsy has to offer, it’s where we got our start. The goal of every business is to grow and expand and having our site allows us to do that. We are able to reach more customers, accept more payment forms and communicate more clearly. You will only find our perfume oils on Etsy for a while but our full product line will live here at www.poisonappleapothecary.com.
 
 
 
Where’s My Favorite Scent?
 
This is a question I get A LOT! To clarify I promise I am not holding any old favorites hostage. When the company was purchased I only got the formulations of the most current line. Anything that was sold prior to this no longer exists. I assure you that before a scent is discontinued it is carefully considered. If a product isn’t selling we are unable to continue carrying it. As I said before we plan to expand and grow, many more exciting things are to come, stay tuned!
 
Updates
 
* Be on the lookout for a very special Valentine’s Day cross promotion with two very special vendors. Details to come soon. Sign up for our mailing list for the latest details!
 
* A new scent (or two) will be debuting in March. I have been wearing the latest formulation and absolutely love it. This is an unexpected combination that I simply adore. Description to come soon...
 
* We offer corporate gifting and wholesale opportunities. Just think of the creative ways you could share Poison Apple Apothecary with your friends, family, and co-workers. Soon we’ll dedicate an entire post to this but in the meantime if you have any questions or ideas please e mail me at jess@poisonappleapothecary.com
