My name is Amber Prassenos and I am passionate about creating health and beauty products. The name I use for my products is Aristides Apothecary. I offer small batch, handcrafted herbal health and beauty products. All products are 100% natural and mostly organic. I also try to source as much as possible from my own garden or from local businesses. From lotions to skin healing salves, the best ingredients are used.
My products are unique from most because I have studied vigorously about the medicinal qualities of herbs and the best way to extract those properties from the plants, so you are getting the best product possible. Aristides in Greek translates to "the best kind" and every product that is offered is, in my opinion, the best kind. It is also a tribute to my grandfather who taught me everything about plants, gardening and cooking.
I also love crafts, so you will also see various craft items that I have created at times. A lot of love, time and care go into my products and I hope you will love it as much as I loved making it.
