Manly has truly come of age with a new age shop for right now, stocking raw ingredients for skincare and wellness.

Apothecary Botanica is a calm and restful space created by owner Erica, with many customers noting the radiant, relaxing vibe. This is a reflection of Erica's natural aura along with the shop's crystals, essential oils, herbs and, of course, the fresh bayside air.

Natural Oils - image from website

The mainstay of the shop is its skincare range of clays, herbs, butters, waxes and soaps along with bulk oils including jojoba, rosehip and coconut, sold by weight in bottles and jars. However you are encouraged to BYO for a zero waste option. Erica will happily talk recipes and discuss green beauty and botanicals and how they can work for you.

The trend this year is Lo Fi Beauty, or put simply - less is more, and choosing quality over quantity. At Apothecary Botanica, Erica advocates products, including her own range Erica Brooke, to give that barely there glow, which accentuates and lets your freckles shine through. It uses a combination of high quality, natural and organic ingredients, including some beautiful native Australian super foods, precious oils and beneficial carrier oils, along with carefully chosen vitamins and antioxidants to help care for your skin.

The shop is a lovely surprise of crystals, books, handmade jewellery, cleansing sage, tarot, tea and conversation. Plans are also underway to offer tea readings and tellings on market days, plus a magical, child friendly space.

Erica is also excited to run workshops throughout the year. She will expertly guide you through the art of creating your own body scrubs or face polish using pure natural ingredients, natural incense rolling or how to easily reduce toxins in your home.

Details of upcoming workshops can be found on the Facebook page and website.
