Love letters for our products
Maria curated a package of garden delights she makes with her own hands and the bounty from the garden. I am transported to the garden during the quiet cold winter months when I use the Love Yourself organic herbal body oil on my face and take a big inhale of the lavender, and chamomile flowers infused with olive oil. The garden continues to fill my cup when I need it most.

The way we do things
We are a bioregional herbal apothecary.
This means we only use herbs that we grow at our own homestead. All of the herbs are hand harvested at their peak and air dried on site. They are stored with methods to retain maximum potency.
We strive for self-sufficiency.
Aside from growing and processing all of our herbs, we infuse all of our own oils, macerate our own tinctures and steam distill all of our hydrosols. All of our skin formulations and tea blending recipes are created from the changing availability of our herb stock. We don't like to waste a single leaf or petal.
We choose our ingredients ecologically.
Of course, there are ingredients that cannot be locally produced and we do our best to source them mindfully, with as little travel, packaging and processing as possible.
Beeswax and honey comes from local beekeepers.
Vodka and apple cider vinegar is produced locally in Ontario.
Olive oil comes once a year, on a slow boat, in 18 litre tins, directly from a connection in Greece.
Salt (Fleur de Sel and Himalayan Pink) comes in bulk from a local organic food store.
We limit the use of tropical ingredients and exotic oils, but can't deny the value of ingredients like rosehip oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. These are always bought in bulk, organic and fairly traded.
We create as little waste as possible.
All of our packaging is recyclable and reusable. We can refill your bottles if we are making a custom package for you. At this time we cannot accept bottle returns for general reuse.
