Just a genuine thank you for having a shop like yours. Before getting on the road with 2 kids and our dog, I left with a sense of calm. Keep going because your shop is needed by so many

We stopped in to this shop while visiting the bookstore and it was awesome! We bought a couple books and locally made earrings that are great. We’ll be back!

Lovely shop with a knowledgeable owner. Austin is friendly and has a plethora of locally sourced and made natural products along with other fun things like books, candles, jewelry and treats. Definitely worth a stop

Stopped in last week while on vacation. Beautiful shop with a very friendly, knowledgable owner. I used the Cleaning Grains this evening and the scrub felt wonderful! Looking forward to trying out the chamomile tincture this evening as well. Thank you!

This is such a lovely, unique shop in the midst of tourist central! It’s a beautiful little space filled with good for you tonics and potions. Also a remarkable selection of books on herbals and other natural healing topics. Loved it!

Fantastic experience today at Natural Selection Apothecary in Duck, NC! I left with some whipped honey made from the hives of local bees in eastern North Carolina and a tea blend of organic stinging nettles, lemongrass, and milky oat tops. Everything in the store has intentional medicinal benefits for a wide variety of alternative medicines. Great book selection as well. Expect to see some her teas served at my future yoga retreats. She ships ;)
