A company created to serve our world!
Wholesome Alchemy first started because our founder, Courtney Bohlman, recognized a need in the world. A need to be of larger service to this planet and all the beings upon it. Courtney had recently returned from developing a school in Ghana and felt called to expand that impact. She wanted to find a way to support those communities, along with her local community, all while making a positive impact in the world.
It has been a journey and each year our company becomes something more…we don’t know the final destination (even though we hold a vision) but we are here for the unfolding.
We are incredibly proud of the growth and impact of Wholesome Alchemy. A company that was created for service.
Our soap making journey began in 2014 and in the spring of 2020 we opened our doors. Courtney had a vision: To spread health and wellness, by turning everyday essentials into a wholesome, organic, luxury experience with the highest standard of quality, care, and love.
Wholesome Alchemy began as a 100% organic, vegan, and handmade body care product line. Just like the food we eat, we only use fresh, natural, and wholesome ingredients that will positively contribute to your health. These products started as a personal healing journey for our founder, Courtney Bohlman. Having been diagnosed with cancer in her 20’s along with having battled with rashes and itchy dry skin for most of her life, she began seeking and creating a better alternative. A product line that would heal and nourish skin, while working with the body to create balance—and healing our earth in the process.
A company that would give back more than it took.
We donate soap, shampoo, and supplies to local shelters and non-profit organizations MONTHLY. We have some powerful connections growing, but are also looking for more as our company continues to grow.
We are organic, vegan, sustainable, and almost completely plastic free.
The products we create are all handcrafted in the United States but at Wholesome Alchemy we believe that each of us is a global citizen. We understand that we have to make choices that help all of man-kind (not just Americans).
That is the path we are walking.
Our philosophy is in alignment with the creation of our products. Less is more and simple is better. We aim to holistically heal, nourish and maintain a healthy body, mind, heart, and spirit while using 100% natural, wholesome and organic Ingredients.
We want Wholesome Alchemy to help make our world a better place. Keeping this at the front of our minds drives us to use renewable and sustainable ingredients. Our packaging is made from recycled materials and we are almost completely plastic free (besides a little bubble wrap & plastic in our essential oil roll-ons). We have made these choices for our organization because we know that this world belongs to all of us.
At Wholesome Alchemy not only do we want to “leave no trace” but we want to make the world a better place! We are continually developing relationships in developing countries where we can source our oils directly from small farmers. With our ultimate goal being to source all of our materials this way (we are almost there).
A portion of our profits go towards funding and developing schools and education in West Africa, with the knowing that we will expand into other countries as time continues and our company grows. Allowing our profits to go back into our global community.
Wholesome Alchemy isn’t just our name. It is a commitment to crafting magically wholesome, healthy products, and educating the world on why living a wholesome and healthy life is important.
We strive to live with compassion, kindness and empathy; to be environmentally sustainable and to improve the lives of all beings, while also being charitable and giving back to our global community.
If you feel called to join us in this mission, then reach out today and together we can explore how you can work with us to make this world a more wholesome, healthy, and ultimately a “better” place for ALL.
If you are REALLY feeling the call, we would love to have you join us for our Karmic yoga retreat. We will work hands on with the schools that we support in West Africa. Our big project is to plant gardens at these locations so that we can create a sustainable food supply for our students. You can explore this retreat on our retreat page or reach out with any questions that you may have.
We are always accepting donations for the schools we support, especially school supplies! Each year when we return to Africa we bring our donations with. A little goes a long way, as $2 feeds one student for an ENTIRE WEEK!
