Kae Story

How it all Began...

From Kitchen Table to Kae Apothecary.

Kae Apothecary started as a dream in 2015. Just me, sitting at my kitchen table, making essential oil potions and using my friends and family members as test subjects. During the years of 2015 & 2016, I did the pop-up show shuffle. Setting up at vendor shows around Iowa, I watched in awe as the Kae products became loved by MORE than just my friends and family members. 

Then, in 2017, a friend and fellow small business owner invited me to a tucked away basement space that was off the beaten path in Uptown Mount Vernon, and in April of 2017 the first Kae back alley storefront opened! I remember thinking, “How in the hell am I going to help people even FIND ME back here in this alley?” I came to the conclusion that the best way to lead folks around the corner, was to create events and gatherings that they WANTED to seek out. 

That was the birth of The Apothecary Community.

And now, we are here, into the energy that is 2021, 6 years later with the re-birth of Kae Apothecary. The new logo represents the growth that has happened over the years. It represents the interconnectivity of the Kae Community and the inclusion of all people, beliefs and practices. It holds the energy of the Zero which is everything and nothing; the space between this world and that as well as the space between the body and soul of each Apothecary Community member. 

As we welcome in the new energy of this Kae Apothecary, I invite you to celebrate the community members that are making the magic happen. Kaycee of Bent Willow created our incredible hand drawn logo and the new symbol that encompasses the Kae mission and values. Maggie of Roots and Wild is capturing the visual aspect of Kae and Robin of Brown Wing Studio will be bringing it all together with the new website.
