rebecca’s apothecary

Founded by Rebecca Luna in 2004, Rebecca's Herbal Apothecary & Supply is a bustling, community, retail store aiming to provide everything one needs to use or make botanical medicines. Upon entering, one is greeted with a hello and the incredible aroma of whole botanicals, no synthetics here, just real plants and simple ingredients. A wall of dried herbs stands behind the counter, this is the heart and inspiration of the shop. All of Rebecca's products are made right on site in our commercial kitchen in small batches with concentrated care.

 

DoTerra

When you choose doTERRA, you are choosing essential oils gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. 

Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils.  

While there is a science to the distillation of essential oils, it is also an art. Distillers not only rely on years of experience, they also employ modern technologies and techniques. 

The most common method of extracting essential oils is a low-heat steam distillation process. In this process, pressurized steam is circulated through plant material. The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected. To ensure the highest quality oil extract with the correct chemical composition, the temperature and pressure must be closely monitored. Too little heat or pressure and the oil will not release; too much, and the oil’s composition and potency will be affected.
