Handmade Products for the Kitchen, Bath and Body

Handmade Products for the Kitchen, Bath and Body

It all started when Anya Corson's first child was born, and she found out her daughter had many allergies. Anya made it her mission to find or make any products she could to help heal her baby's perfect skin. The idea to create Anya's Apothekere, handmade products for the body, bath and kitchen, started growing in Anya's mind many years ago.

Two children later, Anya calls her business her "third child," having just launched at the tail end of 2017. But orders are coming in quickly, with some popular items like the "Flu kicking Fire Cider" already selling out. It's advertised as a holistic immune booster, containing the natural benefits of garlic, ginger, horseradish and turmeric, which is an anti-inflammatory that can help the body fight off foreign invaders. 

For the kitchen, the finishing salts have been big hits. They are unrefined natural Celtic Sea salts with flavors infused.

"Without the help of my mother, owner of The Center For Mind, Body & Spirit, I could never have seen my dream through. The business started and developed in her dining room with our warehouse in the extra bedroom of her condo. We are currently looking to move into a commercial kitchen to advance the process of our imminent growth," says Anya.
