Boline Apothecary, an herbal remedy and body care store, has a new location in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus. Owner and founder Lily Shahar Kunning saw an opportunity to move closer to peers Momentum 98, Wholly Craft, The Winemaker Shop, Colonial Candy and Global Gallery. “The new location puts us in the heart of “walkable” Clintonville and the local farmers’ market,” says Kunning.
The business began in 2012 when Kunning moved to Columbus from California and sold her items at local farmers’ markets. In April 2014 she opened a storefront in the Beechwold section of Clintonville, next door to City Folk’s Farm Shop.
An added feature at the new location is the introduction of a members-only “tonic club”. “Tonics are daily drinks consumed to promote optimum health and wellness as the seasons change,” explains Kunning. “As an herbalist, I want to promote wellness and prevention instead of only treating conditions as they arise.”
In addition to its own line of herbs and body care products, Boline Apothecary stocks nationally-distributed lines, essential oils, flower essences and homeopathic remedies. The shop offers classes, workshops, and regular talks on herbalism, aromatherapy, wildcrafting and more.
