  • Dr. Dyce and PLANT Apothecary cover mental wellness Clinical Mental Health Therapist Dr. Dyce shares how to fit self-care into your busy schedule

    By Dr. Ceymone Dyce

    There’s a lot going on.

    Do you ever have moments where you just raise your hands & ask “what else is going to happen!?”

    #relatable #currently

    Self-care can already be a struggle when things are going well in our day to day but what about when we’re busy, overwhelmed, or just over it?

    When you’re busy, taking care of yourself can feel like THE most daunting of tasks and something that can be placed on the back burner. As we become busier, the free time we have gets smaller and you want to make sure it is spent on things that matter. When you have a busy lifestyle, the last thing you want to think about is how to devote time you already don’t have to something that does not provide you some sort of instant gratification.

    Happy Independence Day to all our PLANT friends!

    While the 4th of July to many of us represents a time where we can come together with our friends and family, celebrate all that we are grateful for and the warmer, happy months ahead, it also is a great opportunity to recognize and evaluate the things that we can do as an individual and collective to continue creating the country and community that we want it to be.

  • It’s kind of a funny story

    Building a brand is no easy feat, nor is falling in love. But we’re doing both together.

    It may be hard to distinguish your personal life from your professional life when they’re one in the same, but we’ve learned throughout the years that lots of love (and even a brand!) can come from being together 24/7. Disagreements and business woes will always pop up along the way, but the key to happiness is finding an (organic) formula to surviving life’s bumpy roads.

    We sat down with Man Repeller to chat about how we met, why we started PLANT and what it’s like working together. Check out the full interview here: http://www.manrepeller.com/2016/05/plant-apothecary-holly-mcwhorter-and-bjarke-ballisager.html

  • PLANT---Re-Fresh Welcome to the PLANT family: RE: FRESH

    We all know summer in the city is wonderful, but it can sometimes be a sticky experience. After spending a long day in the hot sun, there is nothing better than cooling off with a cold shower. For those days when you don’t have time to rinse off at home, a hydrating facial mist is your best bet to keep your skin calm, cool, and collected in the heat. Whether you need a post-workout pick-me-up or a radiance boost, it’s always a good idea to keep a quick spritzer in your bag. Continue Reading

    Your flight’s booked, the bathing suit is packed, and you’re ready for a much-needed vacation. But there’s still one thing left: deciding which skin care essentials make the cut.

We understand the need for packing light— which is why we’re excited to introduce a new mini bodywash that is TSA-approved and packs a punch. Bon voyage!
