From the bottom of my heart...

Dearest Friends,

Can you believe it? Today marks 4 years in business for Champagne Apothecary!!

As I reflect upon my journey and all that has transpired, I can only say that I am in complete awe of where Champagne Apothecary and ETHYST® skincare have come.

How much we've grown over the years, how many lives we have changed, how many people we have come to know, how many opportunities we have been given, how many times we have shown the world that we are out to make it a better place... thinking of all of it is overwhelming to say the least.

I cannot express the amount of gratitude and joy I have in my heart today for each and every one of you who believed in me, trusted me, and supported me through it all. I will never be able to have the right words, but know that in the depths of my heart there is a special place for each and every one of you. And there is not a day that goes by where your support and love for me and my business go unnoticed.

Owning a business is NOT easy. In fact, it's one of the hardest things I have ever done and if you know me, you know I've walked through some fires and have done quite a lot of things over the years. Every day is a uphill battle to ensure progress is made, but every single tear (and there have been many), drop of sweat, every long day  - all of it - is more than worth it when I get a message from someone about how an herbal remedy or ETHYST® has changed their life.

I say this to you with the utmost truth and integrity and mean this with every fiber of my being and soul. I could not do this without you. Everyday you help me to live out my dreams of helping people overcome their skin and health challenges, educating people well and accurately in a world full of skincare misinformation, and living a life full of incredible community members - just like you! 

We are making a HUGE difference in this world.

  • Together, we have helped an enormous amount of people all over the country overcome their skin issues, gain confidence, and live life with more joy and less stress.
  • We have donated tens of thousands of dollars to local organizations supporting women in business, youth in the community, cancer patients, animal organizations and more!
  • We have created a trusted source in the Champagne Apothecary name for people to turn to when they want real science based information that will actually help them and made a dent in the misinformation dangerously passed around and perpetuated in the skincare industry.
  • We have created a peaceful haven for people to drop by; even if it's just because they're having a bad day.
  • We have offered hundreds of eco-friendly, sustainable, cruelty free, gluten free, paraben free, vegan, all natural, small business American made items to help people finally overcome issues they've long been dealing with.
  • And so much more!

The list is so long, it's truly remarkable to me. I would have never imagined where we would go together.

And the wild thing is that there is still so much to come!

Be on the lookout for lots of amazing launches and other surprises and announcements coming this year! If you don't already follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or TikTok, choose your fave and connect with us there!

And as always, keep your suggestions, your reviews, and your messages coming. You truly continue to inspire me.

Cheers friends!
