Meet The Maker
Balefire Apothecary was created by Amanda in 2016 as a one woman operation. She is a licensed Esthetician and has been enjoying the journey of herbalism for 10 years. You can find her rummaging around the forests of New Hampshire looking for dinner, baking, drinking gallons of tea, trying her hand at making mead, researching folklore, attending Comic Cons, Ren Faires...and maybe geeking out to World of Warcraft. Her long term goals are to open up a brick and mortar store, learn another language and travel overseas.
She hopes to educate others on skincare and provide helpful information to aid others in a pursuit of "close to the ground DIY".
She currently resides in New England with her fiance along with her animal family of Tank (dog), Kinari (cat), Raiden (bearded dragon), Spood / Neith (tarantula) and Sylvanas (red eyed crocodile skink). Tank was adopted by Sweet Paws Rescue, if you're local to Massachusetts this is an amazing rescue to find your animal companion!
Ammil Forest is an artisan perfume house that Amanda has been working on for almost 2 years and hopes to launch at the end of 2019. For those interested please check out this Facebook group for updates.
