As a young girl growing up on Vancouver Island, I discovered my love for creating. Some of my most cherished childhood memories involve crafting with my two sisters, all the aunties, my mother, and of course my nan - our home was always brimming with the powerful, creative energy of strong women.
A few years ago, during a winter season, a dear friend introduced me to the art of soap-making, and I was instantly captivated. I delved into it with fervor, creating soaps in my kitchen as a way to channel my energy during those rainy days. Before I knew it, my passion had organically blossomed into a full-fledged business. Each bar of my botanical cold process soap, coastal candle, botanical bath bomb, and bottle of plant perfume is lovingly handcrafted in small batches, infused with love, and a deep commitment to being environmentally friendly and ocean-safe.
I am immensely grateful to be a part of the vibrant female-led business community in Tofino, where entrepreneurship thrives. It is my hope that through my business, I can pass on the same passion for mindfully made goods to my own daughter as she grows.
