As a redhead with sensitive, freckled skin, I spent my life searching for natural, gentle products that I could use easily. Back in the 1980's one of my part-time jobs while going to Camosun College was working for the iconic Body Shop.
This was my absolute immersion into the world of CLEAN products with ingredients I could pronounce & understand that would not hurt or damage my skin.
Fast forward to motherhood and my love affair for eco-friendly, healthy and all natural products took another leap forward. My goal for each of my 3 perfect babies was to use only the cleanest, purest of washes, soaps, diaper creams and household products. I learned early on that calendula cream was a magical balm for diaper rash, eczema and skin issues... and that soothing lavender essential oil was a new mom's best friend at baby's bedtime. For 15 years, I have been producing hand-made body & home products and now am evolving further into the world of herb, flower and vegetable gardening!
When my youngest baby became sick when she was 6 years old, we found ourselves navigating a 4 year journey through Children's Hospital and 100+ seizures a day. With perseverance, a 2 year alternative treatment and a dedication to clean living, clean products and clean lifestyle, we persevered and am thrilled to say that Sophie is seizure free and thriving!
This past few summers, we grew crops of calendula flowers (the never-ending flower season!) and we harvested continually from end of May til October. We are proud to say that we air dried every one of those beautiful, sun filled blossoms and have added them to our bath bombs, floral face steam kits and infused them into various oils. We also grew nasturtiums, roses, cosmos, rosemary, lavender, cilantro, basil, sage and spearmint for our soaps and bath bombs.
We enjoyed 45+ other vegetables and fruits such as beets, cucumbers, strawberries and more..... needless to say, some of those ended up in face and body products too! Watch for our garden blog posts!
Together, we bring you a line of bath, body and home products to delight and soothe your skin and enrich your senses all while respecting the planet. I love using rich butters, essential oils and quality ingredients to produce luxurious items for the whole body. From body & face lotions, massage bars, bath bombs and soaps to natural laundry soap and all purpose cleaners. We only use all natural ingredients, growing what we can, buying locally when possible (including cranberries, pumpkin, herbs and dried flowers).
