With the popularity of CBD on the rise, one herbal-based brand sets themselves apart focusing on sustainability and social action. The Alchemist’s Kitchen, which has a full online store and two New York locations, compiles the most high quality, ethically sourced herbal remedies and products. They change up their collections seasonally, and always try to obtain products from small farms.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, CBD, is the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis plants. It can be used to help a wide variety of things including seizures, muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety, and much more!
Our bodies actually contain receptors that regulate relaxation, sleep, memory, eating, and immunity. Recently, doctors have been raving about CBD products, from which there are many currently flooding markets, because they have similar structures to endocannabinoids.
Beauty and the Weed
CBD has proven to have many cosmetic, sexual, and pain relieving benefits, and the Alchemist’s Kitchen currates top-of-the line cannabidiol products. Cosmetically, they sell things from soaps to pain relieving lotions and masks.
Teaming up with the Southampton Soap Company, they created CBD infused, hand-cut soaps. It aids in relaxing the skin fixing problems like redness, eczema, and psoriasis. They also sell a CBD and saffron infused face cream that is mixed with other oils, which has anti-inflammatory properties.
My personal favorite product is the Soul Addict CBD Honey Mama Manuka face mask. It is made with camu camu, cannabidiol, raw honey, and ashwagandha to help calm, hydrate, and brighten your skin.

Aside from CBD products, the Alchemist’s Kitchen sells all things spiritual. From various crystals to palo santo sticks, pieces of wood used to purify and cleanse spaces, this spot has everything for the higher self.
