Hi. I'm Vanessa, the lead crafter and head dragon tamer here at Vintage Alchemy.

What's Alchemy, you wonder? Alchemy is a “seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.” Vintage Alchemy is my art of combining ancient recipes in new and magickal ways to promote healthier living.

Through Vintage Alchemy, I sell handcrafted artisan products such as soaps, candles, bath and beauty products, perfume and cologne oils, lip balms, and aromatherapy creations. My products are infused with positive energy, the feel of nature, and a little magick. 

It was born out of my personal need for high quality, natural products that I could feel good about using on my skin and in my home.

As a self-proclaimed DIYer, eclectic house witch, and herbalist, I decided to make a few items for myself. It wasn’t long after that when my momma asked me to conjure up a few recipes for her needs and my product list started to grow. When my husband's goatee kept scratching my face, I created a beard oil. When I couldn't figure out why my dog was having skin flareups, I created an all-natural dog shampoo bar. When I decided to stick with natural perfumes, my product list grew again. When I found out what toxic chemicals were in mass produced candles and soaps, you guessed it, I started to make my own. If I find a need, and I love making it, I create it!

Located in the small farming town of Goshen, on the outskirts of Cape May NJ, all products are crafted in my 1820’s farmhouse surrounded by positive energy, lush gardens, and serenity. If I can grow it myself for my products, I do. I make things I’m passionate about and things I truly enjoy creating.

Every item is personally handcrafted in very small batches and checked for quality to ensure you are getting products that are simply perfect. My products are made with the best intentions, a little magick, and lots of positive energy instilled in each creation. If you aren’t happy with something, I’ll do my best to fix it.

It’s my hope that you love my products as much as I do! Please help spread the word of Vintage Alchemy to your family and friends. I’d be honored to share my magick with them as well. 

Much love 💕 ~ Vanessa
