Our Story

Birchsalt Apothecary was inspired by a desire for natural, clean and simple goods.

While spending time out in the garden, founder Kate Kirby, a registered nurse and avid gardener, was eager to dive into the world of handcrafting soap as a sustainable and eco friendly alternative for self-care products.

Based in Maine, she connects with the great outdoors, often harvesting from her own garden for inspiration in creating, all-natural bath essentials. 

Birchsalt Apothecary officially launched in 2023.


birchsalt is a fictional word, with a deeper meaning of finding inspiration from land and sea. 

Inspired by nature

At Birchsalt Apothecary, our passion for crafting exceptional soaps is deeply rooted in our love for nature. Inspired by the beauty and wonder of the natural world, each of our soaps is a tribute to the earth's bountiful offerings.
