Rosalie Apothecary is proud to be a community resource for those who wish to learn more about herbs and natural health. Besides showcasing a wonderful assortment of herbal remedies and natural, locally made products, we offer classes and the most extensive collection of books on the topics of herbal medicine, healing and natural beauty in New Orleans!
Rosalie Apothecary began in Christiane’s home, which at the time was connected to a tiny tucked-away alley in the Bywater neighborhood called Rosalie Alley. Adorned with paintings of mermaid skeletons, skulls and other spiritual symbols, Rosalie Alley is a peaceful and magical escape where Vodou ceremonies still occur most Saturday evenings. As a small home-based business, Christiane started making tea blends and other herbal products to sell at various markets around New Orleans and the North Shore.
In late 2014, Rosalie Apothecary finally opened its doors for business in Mid-City, nestled by Bayou St. John and the Lafitte Greenway. A celebration of all things natural, Rosalie Apothecary specializes in Western medicinal herbs and extracts as well as offers a wide selection of culinary spices, salts and black, green, red and white teas. All our herbs and teas are either organically grown or ethically wildcrafted, and can be purchased by the ounce. Rosalie Apothecary also offers a growing assortment of high quality, affordably priced, organic essential oils, carrier oils, bulk shea and cocoa butters, local honey and beeswax, as well as other hard to find ingredients so that our customers can create their own herbal and beauty concoctions. Perhaps what truly sets Rosalie Apothecary apart is our curated selection of handmade, small production natural products such as soaps, gem and flower essences, smudges, syrups, balms and salves, bath salts, perfumes, etc. Many of our producers are local or woman-owned, or both!
Rosalie Apothecary is also a community hub for learning about herbal healing and natural health. We offer an extensive and increasing curriculum of classes and workshop series, many of which are rolling such as our hands-on, beginner herbalist course called The Heart of Herbal Medicine. Rosalie Apothecary also hosts donation-based, community events such as our monthly New Moon Women’s Circle. Please check out our Classes page for class and event updates!We also offer private classes upon request.
Rosalie Apothecary believes that incorporating herbal medicine is part of maintaining a balanced life as well as a viable option for acute or chronic illnesses and healing crises.
