small business spotlight: Miss Marie’s Hand Crafted Apothecary

As a woman working toward building her own little empire I truly get the struggle of women who gracefully juggle many roles while simultaneously burning the midnight oil and networking to bring to fruition those ideas that won’t let them sleep at night or let their brain idle. Those ideas they are passionate about and are determined to mold and refine into tangible representations to share with the world deserve to be seen.

Being a dreamer I know all too well the reality that  some of those aspirations never make it off the paper. They are often defeated by thoughts of fear and the what ifs and never make it off the notepad on the nightstand and into viable action. Support is so important and I know in our society we need to do a better job at uplifting and encouraging women and moms to walk in their gifts.

This small business spotlight is highlighting Miss Marie’s Hand Crafted Apothecary

File Jan 26, 12 12 20 PMI had the privilege of meeting  owner Alisa Matthews and was smitten with her quiet, and warm spirit. A mom, full time WAHM and small business owner she truly juggles all of these roles with style and grace. She is passionate about her business, and in her own words,

” It’s such a joy knowing that I am able to help polish, purify and perfect the skin of many!”

Her line of body products are hand made with the finest of organic ingredients to include essential oils. These products were the result of her being forward thinking about finding a great smelling way to combat her children’s problematic dry skin symptoms.

Miss Marie’s started in Alisa’s kitchen. I mean who doesn’t love a good grass roots start!  It was in the heart of her home that she began concocting light and pleasant smelling organic body butters. Her signature products,  Key Lime Coconut Butter (my FAVE) and Original SOS butter were the first products that put Miss Marie’s Hand Crafted Apothecary into business.

With a little word of mouth networking these products have found themselves into the hands of and have received glowing reviews from Olympic track star Funmi Kay Jimo and Maricela Cornejo, a female boxer from Floyd Mayweather’s camp.

Organic Skincare

With the impending opening of Miss Marie’s Hand Crafted Apothecary’s new Etsy shop Alisa is working to bring  more organic skin goodies to her product line. You can look forward to a Pink Grapefruit body scrub and other relaxing bath bombs and bar soaps for the face and body made with goats milk, honey and a blend of natural and organic oils.

    I absolutely love the scents and textures. OMG, leaves my body feeling silky smooth. I love how the day goes by and you get a swift wift of something that smells so light and beautiful to only find out that it is you! The scents have a light staying power which is really rare these days. I will continue to purchase. Thank you, Miss Marie, thank you.

    I’ve had the pleasure of trying her butters before and they worked wonders for my son’s problematic eczema skin. Great spotlight on this business!
