Welcome to our new website!


So pleased to be able to tell you about our friend Chelsea's labor of love, Rainchild Apothecary. Chelsea is inspired by holistic wellness, nature, and by creating healthy rituals. It is her hope that when people use Rainchild Apothecary products, they slow down for a moment and enjoy the process of self-care. Even the mundane experience of washing one’s face, can become a moment self-care when we are present and thoughtful within those minutes it takes to awaken our senses and take care of our skin. For others who have, or have had, trouble being kind to their skin, we welcome you to try Rainchild Apothecary, as it is made with good-for-you ingredients and love. Our whole family uses her products and I hope you will give them a try, too! Be sure to give her Facebook page a LIKE and follow her Instagram today. Her bubble bombs are THE BEST! They aren't on her website but message her about them and she can definitely ship them to you. Love her Lip Butters and Repair Balm for Face and Eyes, too! You can't go wrong with any of her self care products.
