- Our History -

Sub Rosa Apothecary, the ‘smallest botanical apothecary in the world’,  opened in 2015 in the peaceful little mountain town of Idyllwild, CA. Nestled behind the Wishing Fountain in the Village Lane, a historic shopping arcade in the center of town, the original apothecary store soon attracted a loyal following. Visitors came from far and wide to experience the ‘tester bar’ of 100 pure essential oils and rare aromatics from around the world. In addition to essential oils, the apothecary stocked natural soaps, candles, lotions and aromatherapy supplies. In 2019, Sub Rosa Apothecary relocated to the Point Happy Plaza in the beautiful desert city of La Quinta, near Palm Springs. Our expanded range of products and services now include workshops and private classes.
