Want to Sponsor Autumn Balm Botanicals?? 

Awesome! We are currently offering FREE sponsorship on a month-by-month basis! We are very new to the blogosphere and we love sharing old and new blogs with our readers! The only catch is to have our button on your blog as well.

Add Sizes:



Free sponsorship is subject to change in the future. I would like to keep this free as long as possible. I will only place buttons on my blog if they are blogs I truly believe in and would personally read and/or follow. I would prefer buttons/links to blogs that are similar to mine and that will meet the likings of my readers. **No blinkies please!!

I reserve every right to remove any sponsorship at ANY time for ANY reason I see fit. This is not likely, so no worries; but if I feel your blog is not a perfect fit, I will remove your button at any time.

Please email me at autumnbalmbotanicals {at} gmail {dot} com if you are interested in swaping buttons! I would truly love to hear from you!

I'm just a random girl trying to live every day to the fullest! I have a slight obsession with camera's. Crochet is my secret past time and I love to collect books. I have three cats and a pup, whom I consider my children. I dropped out of college when I was 20 to take care of my dad after his cancer spread. 

I live just outside of Milwaukee, WI where the summers are scolding hot and the winters are bitter cold (and very snowy). Fall has to be my favorite season around, I love to fish (catch and release), go camping, hiking...basically anything fun that deals with the outside & nature. 

I recently opened my own bath and beauty shop on Etsy called Autumn Balm Botanicals. I love creating things from scratch to gain a beautiful result. 

I hope you enjoy my blog. Drop a line and say Hi! I love meeting new people! 

Rachel xo.

ps. Feel free to email me at with any questions, or if you just wanted to say hello! Also, if you think I'd be interested in your blog, send me an email, I'd love to read your daily adventures.

First and foremost, how old are you?? I'm the ripe age of 23! Sadly, I think this sounds rather old. But I assure you, it's not ;)

What sparked your interest in making an Etsy shop? Oh boy, I'll give you the short answer of this. I was an obsessor of lip balms/glosses/etc. I mean, I had over 300 (how embarrassing) lip balms at one time. When I was younger, I always wanted to make my own, but felt it was too difficult. Then I found Etsy. I seen so many shops that had so many different things, including balms, that I knew it couldn't be that hard to make some. So I researched my butt off and here I am today! I mostly am concerned now with using herbs from the earth in my products, as opposed to just making lip balms. Be sure to stay tuned to my shop because there will be many other things in there instead of just lip balms. :)

What kind of camera do you use? Right now I have a Nikon Coolpix L110. It's not a fancy DSLR, but it's pretty darn close. I also have my baby, my Nikon N70, that is a film SLR. I have yet to post (or develop) any photos taken from that just yet. I will soon! I promise!!

Where did the name "Autumn Balm Botanicals" come from? Man, I wish I had a super duper amazing answer to this question, but I don't. I was having the hardest time thinking of a name for my shop. Autumn is my favorite season around, so I knew that had to be in there. I was focusing on making body balms so I knew "Balm" had to be in there. But I couldn't just leave it as "Autumn Balm", that sounds kinda dumb, so I added "Botanicals" due to my herbal love. It's kind of a mouthful, I wish I would have picked a smaller name, but I do love try saying it three times fast ;)

How come you don't share any outfit posts? Because I'm too chicken. No really! I'm a bigger gal, and I always had some self confidence issues, especially lately. But I'm making a promise to myself to do at least one outfit post this year! I just need a really cute outfit to do that! 

How many pets do you have? I have 3 Siamese kitties (a blue point, plain point and a seal/chocolate point). Bentley is the oldest, then came Benson (Benny) and then our recent addition, Bogart (Bogie). I can't forget my baby girl, Lady Jane, who is a Cocker Spaniel. She'll be 5 this year! So all in all, 4 lovely pets! 

How many siblings do you have? I have two older brothers. We are all 5 years apart. So my oldest brother is 10 years older than I. I am also an only child. My mom was married to their dad, eventually divorcing him, and married my dad & had me! I am my father's only child, which is why I am an only child, too! Just to clarify though, I never think of my brothers as only half brothers, because we lived together our whole lives. My parents never raised us to think we were only each other's half sibling either, how uncool would that have been?

What do you usually do when you're not working? I usually watch movies a bunch, that's probably what I do the most. A lot of the time though you'll catch me crocheting, cooking, reading something, surfing the web or taking photos.
