We stopped by on a whim. The proprietor was attentive and generous with sample products. We bought a couple unique soaps. The sample hand oil had a nice fragrance that lasted most of the day. When visiting Cambria take a look at Lucia's Apothecary. I suspect you'll purchase something as we did.

I purchased a few items at this place. Fragrance does not last long and goes bad pretty fast. I purchased room spray,body creme and body oil.

I decided to stop in here after having read the reviews. Every word is true. The owner is a delight and took a lot of time with us. Her scrub are scrumptious and I couldn't leave without purchasing one of her signature scents.

Love the scent of the Big Ur redwood sage body oil. Are the other BigSur scents the same? The website say "man" wash, soap, etc. Have I been using a men's scent the last year. Oh we'll, smells like a spa.

I love the products Linda makes! They are a distinctive and lovely scents. She even has "man scents" available. She is such a nice lady, and the store is open & inviting. A new discovery on our last trip to Cambria, but will become a regular stop each time in the future!

Lucia's is a 'must' for shopping. Products are manufactured locally and are superb. I purchased the 'sugar body scrub' and complementing bottle of 'oil' which is applied to the body after rinsing off the body scrub. Fantastic results ... my skin looks 'alive' and is 'smooth as silk'. Bonnie, the clerk, was extremely helpful in offering skin care suggestions. You... More
