For all my Chicago girls out there trying their best to conquer this winter weather. Let me introduce you to your new Mecca, if you aren’t already acquainted: Merz Apothecary.
Merz has two locations in the city one located in the Loop inside the Palmer Hotel and a second location in Lincoln Square. For those who are not local to Chicago, you can also shop on their website: smallflower.com. Merz first opened on Chicago’s north side over 140 years ago, however I visited the loop location for the first time several weeks again, and I can say I fully understand how this shop has stayed in business (and managed to flourish) for so long.
For starters Merz has an incredible beauty selection (for both women and men!), including a large selection of products I have only ever seen in Europe. Since I am always a fan of discovering new products I could easily spend hours browsing their beauty and bath/body products. They also have an outstanding selection of natural beauty products and fragrances.
Then let’s talk about the candles, OH MY GOODNESS, their selection is AMAZING. Once again the selection is incredible and if you love candles as much as I do you could easily get lost in their candle section.
Did I also mention that there is a huge selection of homeopathic treatments, vitamins and supplements? Merz is truly a spot that focuses on health both inside and out. Weather you are trying to stave off the flu, or add some glow to your winter white skin Merz is definitely a great place to check out. I can’t wait to visit again and see what new discoveries are to be made!
