Who is Sunny Brews Apothecary?

Updated: Apr 13

Sunny Brews Apothecary is a small business who believes in the magic of simplicity and the power of nature. We create products that are gentle on your skin, good for you, and kind to the Earth. Every ingredient chosen serves a purpose and if it isn’t safe, effective, or needed, it’s eliminated.

That is the short answer.  If you still have some coffee, are waiting for work to start, or your interest is peeked, keep reading on.

My name is Sandy, and I’m the owner.  I am a Clinical Certified Aromatherapist with training in product formulation including skincare, haircare, and herbal formulations.  I consider myself a “budding herbalist” (see what I did there) because there is so much to learn about nature’s amazing plants. I embrace this title acknowledging the vast realm of knowledge still awaiting discovery. I constantly find myself in the role of a perpetual student, captivated by the wealth of information yet to be explored.

I promise, I’m not just some snake oil salesman although. I tease my family and friends when they order custom blends telling them I have their snake oil ready. Not to toot my own horn, oh what the heck, toot, I have a lot of training, I'm talking about a lot, like my brain craves knowledge so I keep investing in the training, all the training. I may have a problem. I guess being addicted to training is not such a bad thing, right? Plus, this stuff is just so freaking cool to learn about.

I have been creating aromatherapy products, skincare and haircare products, and herbal blends since the early 2000s and I love it.  Living in rural Missouri allows me to grow many of the plants I use in my blends.  Other ingredients are thoroughly researched to find the best naturally derived, sustainable, organic when possible, and responsibly sourced products from reputable ingredient suppliers.



Why Give Your Time to and Spend Your Money on Sunny Brews Apothecary?

Sum it up in one sentence? Sunny Brews Apothecary offers quality products that adhere to the Clean Beauty philosophy – naturally derived ingredients, transparent labels, and environmentally friendly. 

Our fierce commitment to Clean Beauty means you can trust our products to be free from toxins, clear in what they contain, and crafted with care for sustainability and eco-friendliness.  We also price our products with the intention of making them available to everyone.  You won’t see a $30 bar of soap in our shop.  (I mean, if you wanna pay $30 for a bar of soap, let me get your contact information.)

What Does SBA Offer?

Sunny Brews Apothecary doesn’t just sell products, we offer our expertise and services.  There is a major overabundance of information on the internet, so much data that my brain hurts every time I search for something. Along with this information overload, the risk of inaccurate information is on the rise.  I especially cringe when I see misinformation about how to use essential oils.  No, you should NOT put lemon essential oil in your water every morning – Oil…And…Water…Do…Not...Mix. 

Stick with us kid, and we’ll get you the correct information so you don’t have to scroll through thousands of posts trying to decide what is accurate.  If we don’t have an answer for you, we will find it for you.



Let me set the stage. Our soaps are made with essential oils for the "aroma experience".  In other words, we make lavender soap (Calm the $@*K Down) because the scent of lavender is a best seller and also may help you feel relaxed as you are smelling it while using it.  However, lavender when used in aromatherapy can help support your sleep patterns. 

The purpose of an aromatherapy consultation is to enhance the overall well-being of individuals through the skilled application of aromatherapy principles. By combining knowledge of essential oils and their therapeutic properties with personalized assessments of clients' physical, emotional, and mental states, the aromatherapist aims to create tailored aromatherapy experiences. The primary goal is to promote relaxation, alleviate stress, and support holistic healing, fostering a sense of balance and harmony within the individual's mind and body. Through education, guidance, and the thoughtful integration of aromatic substances, the aromatherapist seeks to empower clients to optimize their health and enhance their quality of life.

Many times, the plant is better used than the essential oil (it will blow your mind how many plant parts are used to make 1 ounce of essential oil, future post coming soon!).  Herbalism takes this into consideration.  The art of tea is a beautiful thing and is truly amazing.  I personally take a tea blend before bed to calm my overactive mind so I can catch some z’s and not be up wondering how many petals are on a calendula flower head. 


Classes and How to Guides

One of my personal mottos is “Never stop learning." Now if you asked me that back in high school, I’d laugh you right out the door.  It took me some time to realize how important it is to continue learning; how good it is for our brains.

I’ve held a few classes in the past, How to Make Body Scrubs and What 5 Essential Oils Should I Purchase First, to name a couple.  If you are ready to unleash your own creativity and become a DIY (do it yourself) then Sunny Brews Apothecary can provide you with the means.  We have How to Guide eBooks that you can purchase and hold your own class.  If you are local to us, we can teach a class for you and your guests.  All our classes and guides come with thoroughly researched information and include formulas and safety precautions.
