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 developed a loyal following.  Visitors came from far and wide to experience the professional “tester bar” of 100 therapeutic-grade essential oils and absolutes from around the world.  Sub Rosa’s offerings also included estate-grown lavender and products from organic local farms, luxurious skincare and massage oils, handmade soaps, beeswax candles, artisanal incense and resins, and unique ‘Silk Road’ treasures and healing gifts.  Sub Rosa Apothecary now continues this tradition at our beautiful new store at Point Happy in La Quinta, CA.
