This 141-year-old, family-owned apothecary is known to carry the city’s largest collection of natural and luxury soaps under one roof. The Chicago staple is filled to capacity with goods from all over the world—fine facial products, lotions, soaps, candles, homeopathic remedies, perfumes, teas, and pretty much any other "feel good" product you can think of, as well as necessities for the home. You can even find cleaning products and laundry detergent. If nothing else, you'll want to stay awhile simply to take in all the charm that comes with the shop's vintage-style setting. The shop also has a second downtown location in the Palmer House.

Great products and selection. The customer service is always great. They are so helpful in finding the right products for you.

You can always find the perfect products or gift at this treasure of a store. And the knowledgeable can always help you with suggestions.

Recently had a radon skin issue and decided to stop in and see what kind of natural product I could use to heal my skin. The girls were super friendly and very knowledgeable. They introduced me to neem oil that smells life death, but mixed with a rose oil or something floral it mask the awful smell a bit. Its really effective and Im glad I stopped in.
