Welcome to my corner of the internet! I'm Rhonda, owner of Moonworks Apothecary and The Torch And Key!

Moonworks Apothecary was created in 2010 when I began selling my soap and candles on Etsy. I've been a soap and candle maker since the early 90's, and I owned an online candle and fragrance oil business.

I started making my own potions and ritual oils using essential oils in 1996 and sold my products in local new age and metaphysical stores.

Along with the potions, I hand rolled beeswax candles, made hot processed soap, body products, hand poured candles, and room sprays.

Prior to opening Moonworks Apothecary, I sold oils, candles, wax melts and room sprays under the name of The Torch and Key.

The difference in the 2 stores is that Moonworks Apothecary only uses essential oils and organic herbs whereas The Torch and Key uses fragrance oils, essential oils and glitters.

I put my business on pause for a few years to work a full time medical job and to participate in my sons' school and sporting events.

After my kids were grown, I reopened my stores because I missed it, it's my passion and I will always have some sort of little shop for as long as I can!

I've also worked with a local paranormal group as a medium and tarot reader and was introduced to Reiki in 1996 and immediately had my first degree attunement.

I’m a solitary practitioner and I work with energies, nature and the elements. I venerate my ancestors and follow an earth-based path.

I'm also a passionate genealogist and I've been researching my family's history since early 2000.

I'm the only employee and I wear all the hats! I have a dedicated shop at my home where spirit has led me to create oil recipes using essential oils, herbs and botanicals with organic carrier oils. By using these ingredients, I am capturing the highest vibration and energy of the plant.

Creating oils for others is a huge passion of mine and I take it seriously.

My creative side loves pretty smells and glittery things and that's why I've reopened The Torch And Key. I love creating beautiful smelling body products and delicious scents for your home.

If I can help you with anything, or if you need a certain oil or product that you don't see, feel free to reach out.

Welcome to Moonworks Apothecary and The Torch And Key!

Many Blessings,


About the potions...

The potions are made with traditional and proprietary recipes using 100% pure essential oils and absolutes which are purchased directly from the manufacturer and distilled by a chemist.

I don't use dyes or glitter in the oils, any coloring is naturally made from the herbs, minerals and essential oils. I stay close to nature to harness the energy of the plant.

I dilute each blend with either fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond, sunflower or extra virgin olive oil and I use distilled water and witch hazel in the sprays.
