What I Do
When possible, grow and harvest the plants needed to craft my products.
When not possible, look to local sources to provide the ingredients needed to craft my products.
And finally, find my ingredients within Canada keeping in mind that there will be times ingredients need to be sourced globally due to our growing seasons.
Why You’ll Love Me
I have an awareness that Earth is our only home and it is important we nurture her by being aware of what she provides for us. In return, I am conscious of how I source my ingredients.
Carl Sagan speaking of Earth in, The Pale Blue Dot, says it best:
To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
With this in mind, Wild Woman Sundries strives to be aware of the Earth and the bounty she provides. My hope is to create an awareness in others by crafting products using plant materials for colour and essential oils for scent. It is not about what to use or not use in regards to Earth’s bounty, it is about being respectful of what she provides and using it in gratitude.
