Formulary 55 is a Seattle based bath and body shop that makes high quality soaps, candles, lotions, and other pampering products in small batches by hand. Owner/maker/curator Cordelia J. Smith is the one behind it all at Formulary 55 and she has been doing it since 1993. From starting out selling at local farmers markets and just over twenty years under her belt, Smith recently expanded her business, moved into a store front location, and has been outsourcing her products to be sold in other shops such as Anthropologie, which is one of my favorites.
Smith creates products for men and women, along with a selection of vegan-friendly products. Here are some of my favorites!
Everything from the quality of the products themselves right down to the package designs are done well - very well. I would love to give all of these items a try, especially the foot soak which is something I normally don't ever have or use. To my surprise I also discovered the option to purchase a monthly subscription for those indecisive buyers out there. With this deal recipients will get one product a month for a full year for just $72. It's called the Spa Gift Subscription and includes soaps, balms, foot soaks, and more. The contact form to reach me is down and to the right on the blog if anyone needs my address - kidding! But really, how sweet would it be to get a Formulary 55 delivered to your doorstep every month?
