Welcome to VK Apothecary! Balms, soaps and candles for unrivaled grooming for ladies and gents. We’ve tinkered and tweaked formulas in our former Oddfellows hall for the past few weeks, and Ainslie even created her own tattoo balm!
We wanted to create a line of products that are unisex and evoke a feeling of the past. Below is a bit more about each product, although we recommend coming in for a whiff.
Made with cocoa butter, shea butter, bee’s wax, sunflower oil and vitamn E, this hydrating salve features a hint of lavender, cedarwood and real vanilla. Use it on hands, feet and other dry spots. A perfect blend of scents before bedtime to help you relax. $9.99 for a 2-ounce jar.
Our lip balm features wintergreen and vanilla. We did a lot of testing on this one to get it right. (And not on our cats or anything like that. We tested it!) Ingredients include bee’s wax, sunflower oil, vitamin E and cocoa and shea butters. $2.99 for a .15-ounce tube.
What is tattoo balm? This is the stuff you put on your tattoo as it’s healing. Ainslie specially formulated this, and we’ve packaged it in an easy-to-apply container; you don’t have to touch your fresh tattoo. The ingredients include camphor and comfrey, an Appalachian healing herb. (Fun fact: Ainslie grew up in Appalachia.) $2.99 for a .15-ounce tube.
VK Apothecary soaps were made by a fellow over in Indiana for us. Every soap contains organic shea butter and no animal fats. $5 per bar
