Michelle Resendiz – Chicago, Il.
I was so pleased when I got home and noticed a box from CO Bigelow Chemists. If you don’t know who they are… this is the time to start familiarizing yourself with the amazing all natural products that they have. CO Bigelow is an Apothecary in fact its the oldest one, being established in 1838!
Our landmark apothecary has been providing prescriptions, healing remedies, unique and unusual beauty products and hard to find apothecary items since 1838.
C.O. Bigelow was initially founded by Dr. Galen Hunter. Originally called The Village Apothecary Shop, it was bought and renamed by Clarence Otis Bigelow in 1880. Mr. Bigelow worked alongside Dr. Hunter before taking over the shop.
Part of our unique legacy has been the passing of ownership from employer to employee. Since 1939, three generations of Ginsberg’s have owned and operated the shop, passing from father to son to grandson.
For nearly two centuries C.O. Bigelow has been providing customers with customized service and specialty products that truly make a difference in their lives.
Today, as always, C.O. Bigelow transcends our expectations of a pharmacy— it is a place of discovery, conversation, learning, laughter and community.
C.O. Bigelow lives on
They have everything from ‘beauty’ products to ‘for the home’ products, and I’m obsessed with some of the things they sent me. I’m sure you are going to notice them all over the magazine, and that’s because WE LOVE THEM! Take a look at what we have LOVED so far.
A handcrafted Tuscan Soap created in wooden and bronze molds. This refined soap with hints of warm, aged oak wood.
Let me just start off with my favorite thing so far. This soap smells like something out of this world, and it comes packaged in this special little box… you almost don’t want to open it. This is such a classy box of soap! The tought of using it is almost forbidden because, really, all you want to do is cherish it and smell it forever. I did use it (against my I MUST SAVE THIS will) and I was amazed. My skin felt like heaven, it smelled like heaven, and it was the best bath with a bar soap I’ve ever had. This is on my list of things to use until I die. It’s handmade, in Tuscany… oh the royalty of it all!

I’m not a huge mint fan, but this… this is AWESOME! It smells like a mix of mints, and it makes my skin feel so soft and tingle. I believe that this is a ‘stress reliever’ wash, because the first day I used it I had just gotten home from a stressful workday, and this totally changed my mood. Plus, I have heard that they put the smell of mint in those stress releasing creams. So, I would think that’s why it worked.
Also, the scent of the wash mixed with the steam of the shower really seemed to make it a nice & breathable atmosphere. I can not wait to use this when I’m sick I bet this is going to be the best cure for that stuffy nose.

My new favorite toothpaste! I think this might even whiten better than the OPTIC WHITE toothpaste that I had been using. I used this just a handful of times and I’ve already noticed a difference in my teeth. Also, the flavor is something out of this world! Very different in texture and all around flavor. I loved it. I am definately a happy camper!
