Fall Flavors (For Your Skin)

A Pueblo apothecary crafts unexpected fragrances inspired by nature's bounty.


Cordelia Smith-Hill of Pueblo’s Formulary 55 has been handcrafting bath and body products for nearly 25 years, but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped innovating: This fall, the popular company will release its beloved Shea Butter Bath Bar ($10, made in small batches from coconut and sustainably sourced palm oils and shea butter) in six new scents. Our pick: Bay Rum & Smoke. “Black tea makes it warm and inviting, and Sicilian lemon and lime make it uplifting during the cold winter months,” Smith-Hill says. Check out this and other limited-edition holiday scents at the company’s newly opened brick-and-mortar shop in Salida.
