  • Where are you located?
    For three years we have operated out of our home studio. Our new apothecary and mercantile will be located in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans - a hop, skip, and a jump away! The corner storefront will be occupied for the first time in decades, and we're honored to be opening soon.
  • Do you handcraft your own products?
    YES! All of the Southern Rhoades Apothecary goods are handcrafted. Many ingredients are even homegrown. This isn't just a buy and resell operation - we're putting a lot of love into these health and beauty products.
  • What do you grow in your organic garden?
    Herbs, flowers, and citrus! Specifically - roses, lavender, sage, rosemary, basil, dill, oregano, mint, spearmint, thyme, aloe vera, grapefruit, clementine, sweet orange, satsuma, key lime, meyer lemon. (And more that we eat!)
  • Is your cold process soap vegan?
    YES! All of our soaps are vegan and are palm oil free.
  • What local ingredients do you source?
    Honey, sugar, beeswax, loofahs, coffee, grain alcohol, water, and more.
  • Is your Palo Santo sustainably sourced?
