About ROMI Apothecary
ROMI apothecary is a collection of natural skin care products made by hand, in small batches by founder Romina Takimoto. Romina is dedicated to creating products that are non-toxic and healing to the skin through the use of premium, mostly organic ingredients, from renewable and local sources whenever possible. Each product is intentionally formulated to sustain the living components of the ingredient, without extensive processing, and to maximize their benefit to the skin. Each product is crafted and packaged with attention to quality using both modern and folkloric traditions in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The philosophy behind ROMI Apothecary began when Romina started to dive deeper into the study of Western Herbalism and connect on a spiritual level to the plants that she would meet in the wild. She found that plants truly have the ability to heal physical and emotional ailments, especially if they were freshly procured from non-toxic environments, with sustainable practices, and a deep respect for their healing properties.
With this awakening, Romina found that when products were crafted to celebrate the untamed beauty of the plants, they performed better because they also encouraged inner beauty to surface. This in combination with scientific-like profiling of plant constituents and careful formulation made products that were both smart and spiritually satisfying.
ROMI apothecary is the embodiment of all things Romina engages in and enjoys. From creating unique combinations of ingredients, engaging in minimal processing to highlight the living components of the plants, using simple and elegant packaging, to being conscious of where ingredients are sourced, ROMI apothecary celebrates the beauty, spirit, and potency of life around us.
Romina was born in Honolulu, Hawaii but has been living in Saint Paul, Minnesota for the past 12 years. She began making her products in 2012 and has been growing her craft ever since. Continuous study through books, classes, apprenticeships, and hikes in nature support ongoing growth and high quality craftsmanship.
