Flora Apothecary...yum / by Jenny Strebe

A month ago I reacquainted myself with an old friend from years ago. Her name is Nikki Wangler formally known as Nikki Padilla. While we were catching up she told me about her amazing artisan body product line. I knew immediately that I needed to try some. Can I just so "Wow" not only is Nikki gorgeous she is very talented at what she does. This fun product line comes in adorable packaging and the products are just adorable and didn't disappoint me.

I picked up her tea lights, facial elixir and body soap. The tea lights are heavenly and Ive been using them outside, in my bedroom and in our bathrooms. I love the scent for the tea lights and couldn't believe they were hand made. The facial elixir didn't disappoint either. This elixir comes in an adorable little blue spray bottle and mists your face every so slightly. It gives your face a beautiful dewy glow. The last product I used was her body soap. There's only been one time that Ive gotten fancy soap for myself like hers. Can I just say, that its well worth every pretty penny. I purchased this soap a month ago and its still going strong. I like my standard "Dove" and all..... but I literally think I will save money by using her soap since its lasting forever. Not to mention it smell heavenly.  Her products are so amazing I had to do a little shout out to her. Below is a statement from the founder of Flora apothcary herself Nikki. If you are looking for great gift ideas or into spoiling yourself, this is differently the perfect product line for you.  







Our mission is to bring to you an artisan body product line that is clean, simple, and affordable. After years trial and errors we have formulated the perfect scents and combinations to promote inner healing and outside beauty through aromatherapy.

Flora Apothecary products are handmade, vegan, all natural, and cruelty free. There are no harsh chemicals, parabens, sulfates, petroleum products, or artificial colorants. You can feel good knowing Flora Apothecary is good for you… mind, body and soul.

I started my line about three years ago as a hobby. I wanted to create some all natural simple bath and body products for my husband and I. I was beginning to notice everything we bought (even at the health food stores) contained sls, parabens, and other harsh chemicals and dyes. These products were not conducive to the healthy lifestyle we lived, and I figured I could create something that was actually healthy for our skin. So after ordering a few all natural ingredients, and whipping up some bath scrubs and soaps, Flora Apothecary was born.

I started giving the products away as holiday, hostess, and birthday gifts. Soon after that I had friends begging me for full orders so they could also give the products as gifts. From there, I have been slowly researching, tweaking, and adding to my line. Finally, I am at the point where I am ready to go public and share my passion with our community. -Nikki Wangler
