support your local apothecaries — the where and how in colorado

If you haven’t been shopping through an apothecary, you’re absolutely missing out.

According to an article published by the University of Pennsylvania’s medical blog, Penn Medicine News, “The term “apothecary” historically refers to both the person who manufactured and dispensed medicines, and the shop in which those medicines were sold.

Nowadays, these hole-in-the-wall shops are full of magic and herbal goodies, however, are found few and far between. From fundamental adaptogens to locally-sourced herbs, and natural wellness products, apothecaries serve the local public on a large scale. You may find adaptogenic herbs (a clear Pachamama favorite!), medicinal herbal teas and tinctures, gems and crystals, essential oils, and a plethora of goodies inside your local apothecary. They’re truly one-of-a-kind and the perfect place to shop local. For our Colorado friends, we’ve outlined our top 4 local apothecaries that go above and beyond to keep people well with the power of plants.
