Bard Bombs Apothecary 

My Iceland trip is a month away and I can’t wait! Thank you so much to those who have donated through my “pay what you will” saga bomb to help me raise funds! It helped give me that extra financial nudge to make this possible! Since I’ll be gone for almost two weeks at the beginning of September, it will be a little harder in that month to make orders, so if you have any plans for back to school or teachers gifts, send in your orders now! #iceland #saga #gisli #grettir #northernlights #paywhatyouwill #spa #makeithomemade #adventure #travel #bardbombs #bespoke #artisanal #handmade #volcanic #elderflower #seamoss #nature #treatyoself #gifts #giftideas #artisanmade #makeithandmade #electrapressbathbombmachine #shoplocal #smallbusiness #utahartists #handmadeutah #buylocalutah #provo

Happy Midsummer! I’m celebrating by....staying home with my foot up :/ I fell off of the stage last night as Oberon, (luckily out of view of the audience) and banged up my foot pretty badly, so I’m at home keeping things iced and elevated. I am, however, trying to keep things Midsummery still and am using one of my Midsummer Night’s Dream Bard Bombs to help take a relaxing soak. Maybe next time I won’t take the line “trip away” so literally. 🧚🏻‍♂️🛀🏻🛌 #bathbombs #faries #faye #midsummer #summersolstice #amidsummernightsdream #shakespeare #bardbombs #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #makeithandmade

Worked on getting a bundle of orders ready today, and dove into my newest Shakespearean read, Stephen Greenblatt’s “Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics”. A fitting pairing to go with the Richard II Bard Bombs I packed up today! #bardbombs #shakespeare #richardii #waroftheroses #bathbombs #bathfizzies #rose #milk #naturalbathandbody #allnatural #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #spa #makeithandmade #stephengreenblatt

“If I be waspish, best beware my sting!” Kate the Curst is the focus of my “Taming of the Shrew” Bard Bomb. I have been wracking my brain forever trying to come up with something for this awesome character, and nothing really stuck. Then I read that stinging nettle,(which doesn’t sting when dried and powdered) is actually quite good for the skin. Paired with the scent of sweet honeysuckle that the bees and wasps in my backyard all love, I realized I had the combination I needed to do justice to Kate’s barbed wit and layered identity. While this play ends in a way that doesn’t adhere to our views of women’s role in the world today, it acts as a touchstone for us to see where we’ve advanced and where we still have miles to go. Here’s to the Kates of the world! Keep buzzing! #bardbombs #shakespeare #bathbombs #bathfizzies #naturalbathandbody #allnatural #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #spa #makeithandmade #tamingoftheshrew #katethecurst #padua #honeysuckle #stingingnettle #commedia #commediadellarte #nerdburgersclub

I plan on releasing a new summertime scent this week! I collect enamel Shakespeare pins and this beauty by @litemporium gave me the inspiration I needed to come up with something special for one of Shakespeare’s most badass ladies. More to come soon! #bardbombs #shakespeare #bathbombs #bathfizzies #naturalbathandbody #allnatural #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #spa #makeithandmade

Sending out a small pile of Saga Bombs on a few orders today! This is such a fun bath bomb to make. I love listening to my favorite podcasters over at Saga Thing go over the sagas of Iceland while I make them. Can’t wait to head out there in September! #iceland #saga #gisli #grettir #northernlights #paywhatyouwill #spa #makeithomemade #adventure #travel #bardbombs #bespoke #artisanal #handmade #volcanic #elderflower #seamoss #nature #treatyoself #gifts #giftideas #artisanmade #makeithandmade #electrapressbathbombmachine #shoplocal #smallbusiness #utahartists #handmadeutah #buylocalutah #provo

Making more centers for my Saga Bomb! I’m still making these pay what you will bath bombs as a fundraiser to get me to Iceland in September. They won’t be on my Etsy shop, but send me a message and I will gladly whip you up an order! #iceland #saga #gisli #grettir #northernlights #paywhatyouwill #spa #makeithomemade #adventure #travel #bardbombs #bespoke #artisanal #handmade #volcanic #elderflower #seamoss #nature #treatyoself #gifts #giftideas #artisanmade #makeithandmade #electrapressbathbombmachine #shoplocal #smallbusiness #utahartists #handmadeutah #buylocalutah #provo

Everything is green again and in bloom! The smells of fresh cut grass, rain, and blossoms blooming are my favorite parts of Spring. Most of the time I release scent based on what’s inspiring me at the moment, and the fresh cut grass scent of my As You Like It bomb is an ode to all the wonderful smells of Spring! #bardbombs #shakespeare #happybirthdayshakespeare #birthday #asyoulikeit #alltheworldsastage #globetheater #calendula #freshcutgrass #flowers #spring #rosalind #celia #touchstone #orlando #spring #bathbombs #bathfizzies #naturalbathandbody #allnatural #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak

“O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful! and yet again wonderful, and after that,
out of all hooping!” Happy Birthday William Shakespeare! It’s been one year since I opened my Etsy shop on the anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and death, and to celebrate I have a new Bard Bomb to bring in Spring! The “As You Like It” is a bright springy green bath bomb with calendula petals and a beautifully earthy and slightly sweet scent of fresh cut grass. It’s one of my favorite scents, and I’ve been waiting all year for today to come around to share with you all! Expect it on my Etsy store by the end of the day! #bardbombs #shakespeare #happybirthdayshakespeare #birthday #asyoulikeit #alltheworldsastage #globetheater #calendula #freshcutgrass #flowers #spring #rosalind #celia #touchstone #orlando #bathbombs #bathfizzies #naturalbathandbody #allnatural #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak

Our orchard was covered with patches of violets today, so I obviously couldn’t pass up a chance to snap a pic of my Midsummer Night’s Dream Bard Bomb nestled up in a bunch of them. I’ve still got room for a couple of local Easter orders, so if you want to add something to your Easter baskets that won’t make you feel guilty at the dentist office, give these a try! #bathbombs #faries #faye #ostara #easter #spring #amidsummernightsdream #shakespeare #bardbombs #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #makeithandmade @the_globe @theoldglobe @utahshakespeare @folgerlibrary @osfashland

Today’s ingredient highlight are colorants! These are the things that make your water colorful and colors the Bard Bombs themselves! There are a lot of different types of dyes, and many schools of thoughts as to which are best to use. I am working on developing a line to offer a range of both synthetic as well as all natural colorants, all of which are safe to use in the bath. Believe me, I know and test them myself! The amount of times I accidentally dyed myself green when first working on the Macbeth Bard Bomb is embarrassing! Sometimes a strong colorant can leave residue on a tub, especially if the tub has previous buildup, but it’s usually nothing a quick wipe down won’t fix! #shakespeare #ingredients #macbeth #color #dye #bathbombs #bathfizzies #williamshakespeare #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #spa #makeithandmade

The Ides of March have crept up on us again, and while the dead didn’t rise from their graves, nor did lions prowl the streets, we got hit by a pretty tempestuous thunder storm last night here at the home base! Nothing is better than living a little dangerously, opening the windows, and listening to a storm roll through. Then again, maybe we should learn from our man Caesar and know when not to tempt fate... ⛈ #shakespeare #williamshakespeare #juliuscaesar #idesofmarch #bathbombs #bath #bathtime #bathfizzies #bardbombs #prophecy #ettubrute #elizabethan #gifts #bath #bathtime #giftideas #apothecary #artisan #handmade #bathart #bathsoak #metime #pamper #treatyoself #bathart #makeithandmade
