About Us

At Ambrosina Apothicaire™, we are committed to providing luxury home products that are handcrafted with the finest natural ingredients, just as they were over 150 years ago. The result is a luxurious, aromatic experience that will transform your environment.

Ambrosina Brownell began making candles in Nova Scotia in the 1800s. She sourced her own natural ingredients for use at home and for her large mercantile store. Today, we follow her tradition of handcrafted items that have been carefully handed down over four generations. Her steadfast strength and commitment to family, friends, craft, and the environment still rings true through our selection of luxury home products. We honor Ambrosina Brownell and everyone who seeks to maintain a beautiful and loving environment.

  Natural coconut or soy-based wax is blended with food-grade paraffin, cotton wicks, and phthalate-free fragrance oils, to guarantee a natural scent. The richest, most luxurious oils are carefully combined to bring out the botanical and natural smells of their named environment experience, which have been curated carefully to match their names. All candles have long burn times of 40-50 hours when properly maintained, with reusable boxes and vessels that round out the hallmarks of our tradition.
