Shed all preconceived notions when you approach the SugarPill door because the design is sure to change your perception of an herbal specialty store. The boutique combines a modern aesthetic with an old-word apothecary feel to evoke an alterna-balance that is void of shrines, the pungent smell of incense or prayer flags.
The product assortment and merchandising is impressive with medicinal & culinary herbs intermixed with spices, artisan chocolates, cocktail bitters & pantry essentials. Seattle resident homeopath and owner, Karyn Schwartz, concocts made-to-order potions from bulk canisters of locally and ethically sourced materials. Each hand-mixed creation is packaged as if it was a fragile pastry.
Gourmet salt serves as an anchor piece with two large displays for at least 15 varieties of bulk and pre-packaged private label seasonings. The crystalline solid, white, pale pink or light gray are a perfect backdrop for the modern packaging.
We love how Schwartz clearly differentiates SugarPill with an authentic twist, unique product assortment, and thoughtful merchandising. It feels more similar to Kiehls or Neals Yard Remedies than your local health store.
Alternative medicine never looked so luxury.
