Apis Apotheca


The Intention

Combining powerful herbs of calendula, chamomile, yarrow, and gotu kola organically grown on the Apis Apotheca farm, as well sustainably wildcrafted reishi, with whole, complete frankincense resin, Resin is an intelligent oil serum that helps brighten, restore, clarify, and calm.

The difference between frankincense essential oil and whole resin is that boswellic acids, which are the main anti-inflammatory components of frankincense, are too large to be steam distilled. In this serum, whole amber droplets of whole frankincense resin are slowly infused in organic Arizona-grown jojoba oil to fully capture the healing magic of these compounds. Combined with rich, deep green Canadian-grown hemp seed oil and New York state grown + pressed sunflower seed oil, this serum has zero added essential oils and delivers serious calm, breakout-busting, and collagen building results. Can be used as an all-over serum or as a gentle spot treatment.

The Apis Apotheca Story
Founded and run by farmers, herbalists, and educators who feel a duty to uphold traditions of equitable access to safe herbal medicine and knowledge, Apis Apotheca creations are brought to life by Aviva Skye Tilson, who comes from a farming background and is a certified community herbalist. Aviva has spent a decade healing herself through working with plants and animals, and has always loved skincare. The Apis Apotheca line represents her combined years of field experience, academic research, and endless experimentation.
The Apis Apotheca team runs a medicinal herb farm in New York’s stunning Hudson Valley, high on a hill facing the Catskill Mountains, with deep, mineral-rich, loamy soil that supports trillions of healthy micro-organisms in balance. This healthy soil grows healthy plants, 100% organically. They grow 98% of the plants used in their formulas to ensure they are fresh, potent, and properly preserved for ever batch of products. And their lab is steps away from their farm fields, which enables them to capture the potency of the plants they grow to the fullest, as well as to experiment to their hearts content whenever they have a lightbulb moment out in the field! The Apis Apotheca lab is also solar powered and they recycle everything that can be recycled, and compost absolutely everything that can be composted — and that compost goes right back on their fields to help grow more gorgeous plants. Full circle.
