LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY WAS FOUNDED IN EARLY 2015 BY JOSHUA AND BRAD TO CREATE SAFE, ALTERNATIVE, MODERN APOTHECARY GOODS CRAFTED FROM ORGANIC AND WILD HARVESTED INGREDIENTS, COMPLETELY NATURAL AND SIMPLY SIMPLE. 

THEY BOTH HAVE A DEEP PASSION FOR ALL THINGS NATURAL, HOLISTIC, AND ORGANIC AND ENJOY THE SIMPLE BEAUTY OF LIFE. NEITHER LIKE COMPLICATED AND BOTH BELIEVE IT IS UNNECESSARY.  THEIR PASSION IS TO CREATE UNCOMPLICATED, SIMPLY SIMPLE, BEAUTIFUL, EFFICACIOUS PRODUCTS. NO FILLERS, NO TOXIC CHEMICALS. LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY’S PRODUCT LINE FEATURES NEARLY TWO DOZEN SMALL-BATCH ITEMS, WITH PLANS TO LAUNCH MORE IN THE COMING MONTHS. UPON REQUEST, THE COMPANY ALSO FORMULATES CUSTOM BLENDS FOR IN-HOUSE TREATMENTS AT SPAS AROUND THE COUNTRY.

FROM RECIPE TESTING TO PACKAGING DESIGN TO SHIPPING, FOUNDERS JOSHUA AND BRAD HANDLE EACH STEP OF THE PROCESS. THEY SELECT INGREDIENTS NOT ONLY FOR THEIR INTOXICATING SCENTS BUT FOR THEIR UNIQUE HEALING PROPERTIES. MAKING USE OF THE SOUTH’S LONG GROWING SEASON, JOSHUA AND BRAD GROW MANY OF LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY’S INGREDIENTS IN THEIR BACKYARD GARDEN OR SOURCE THEM FROM NEARBY FARMERS MARKETS. BY COMMITTING TO WHOLE AND CERTIFIED ORGANIC INGREDIENTS, LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY CREATES GOODS FROM SCRATCH THAT ARE 100% SAFE, NATURALLY POTENT, AND HIGHLY EFFECTIVE.

PRIOR TO FOUNDING LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY, JOSHUA WORKED AS AN EXECUTIVE FOR 16 YEARS IN THE LUXURY BEAUTY AND SPA INDUSTRY IN NEW YORK AND CHICAGO. BORN TO TWO ENTREPRENEUR PARENTS IN A SOUTHERN FARMING COMMUNITY, BRAD HAS ALWAYS BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT THE HEALING POWER OF NATURE. HE PREVIOUSLY WORKED IN MARKETING, HOSPITALITY, AND BRAND MANAGEMENT.

IN 2012, JOSHUA AND BRAD BEGAN RESEARCHING BOTANICALS AND EXPERIMENTING AT HOME WITH RECIPES FOR HANDMADE, SIMPLE SELF-CARE PRODUCTS. THEY SHARED SOME OF THE ITEMS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND WERE SHOWERED WITH ENTHUSIASTIC REQUESTS FOR MORE. AFTER EXPANDING THE LINE TO INCLUDE TODAY’S CORE SELECTION, JOSHUA AND BRAD DEBUTED LITTLE BARN APOTHECARY TO THE PUBLIC IN JANUARY 2015.

THEY BELIEVE IN THE POWER AND HEALING OF ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS AND HAVE CENTERED EACH OF THEIR PRODUCTS AROUND THE SIMPLE FOCUS OF BEING A SAFE, PURE, ALTERNATIVE TO THE CHEMICAL LADEN SELF CARE PRODUCTS IN TODAY'S MARKET. 

THEY INVITE YOU TO SLOW DOWN, AND CREATE A TRULY SIMPLE RITUAL OF SELF CARE FILLED WITH SIMPLY SIMPLE FORMULATIONS EACH LOADED WITH UNIQUE AROMAS, CENTERED AROUND HERBACEOUS, EARTHY TONES, LUXURIOUS TEXTURES OF NATURAL EXFOLIANTS, ORGANIC BUTTERS, AND COLD PRESSED PLANT BASED OILS.
