“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” --Audre Lorde
Naturaliste Apothecary is influenced by the legacy of African-American roots women and midwives, like our ancestor Louisiana Farris, who provided herbal remedies to their communities during slavery and segregation. This knowledge was passed down from mother-to-daughter for generations. The desire to preserve the cultural practices of our family and cultivate a legacy for future generations is interwoven into the fabric of our company. Using the knowledge of these women combined with the technology of today, Naturaliste Apothecary brings ancestral medicine to the modern world. We seek to uplift our community who continue to inspire us to love ourselves unconditionally.
