We are featuring new brands and products in the wellness department at the Co-op that could make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season. 

Province Apothecary is a high-quality organic natural beauty company based out of Toronto. The focus of the company is to produce effective solutions for all types of skin that “are always free from petroleum, parabens, synthetic fragrances and ingredients, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, dyes, alcohol, solvents, pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), palm oil or derivatives, cosmetic grade ingredients and toxins of any kind.” We currently have some free samples of their toner, face serum, and oil face cleanser. I completely love all of their products that I have tried. For holiday gift giving, I would particularly recommend their Radiant Bath and Body Oil. 

Also new to the co-op are Honey Candles’ 12 inch taper pairs. This holiday season we will carry 12 inch taper candles in green, pearl, natural, red, and burgundy. These 100% pure beeswax candles are long-burning, smell great, and are made in BC.   

And, of course, we always carry amazing locally made products. Highlights from the wellness department include Cortes Creations’ lavender eye bags, lip balms, salves, bath soaks, and bath salts and Made By Yulia‘s lavender and rose balms and oils.
