It has been a long time vision to create an apothecary, although 20 years ago the dream was called The Synergy Center and later called The Green Living Center. I am so grateful that I kept believing in my dream in opening a healing space, now realized as the Pleasure Point Apothecary! I am pretty sure 20 years ago I did not even know what an apothecary was!


1. to be a place of herbal and natural medicine 2. to be a place to receive health care information, guidance, and support 3. to be a person who sells medicine

And so the journey began.  My love of plants is probably the number one reason I began my path learning about natural medicine and the powers of natural, integrative healing and wellbeing.  That passion prompted my desire to create a public place to discuss, share and learn more about natural healing! My vision was to turn my reverence for plants, gardening, healthy living into a store or – an apothecary – that would truly embody all things that support healthy lifestyles. Pleasure Point Apothecary sells organic locally grown herbs, tinctures, teas, bitters, fermented elixirs and professional grade nutraceuticals. We feature companies including PURE, Apex Energetics, Natura, and Integrative Theraputics… Plus, we provide a lovely array of green gifts, beauty and home care items including products from Moss Botanicals, Danamala, Big Dipper, and amazing skin care products from wellness expert, Nieves. The Pleasure Point Apothecary is also the home base for The Food Tree Guide To Holistic Nutrition. To learn more about this project, click HERE!
