Last week, Michelle and I got a tour of a new beauty store in Inglewood, The Apothecary. This charming little shop sells natural body care products and all kinds of deliciously smelly things, and everything is done with an environmentally aware touch (they’re Bullfrog-powered).
Owner Jill Hawker carries her own lines: All Things Jill, her products for women (I’m so hooked on the honey hand lotion!); Peas in a Pod, her line for kids, Moms and Moms-to-be; and Just For Jack for men (this Tough Guy hand salve looks awesome). Harris also produces and sells TREK, products designed for the outdoors and made especially for dry Calgary conditions. All TREK products come in a tiny portable container so they’re great for hiking and camping.
Michelle and I bought honey lotion, bath foams, lip balms and the muscle massage oil (which I rubbed into my sore post-stair legs today!).
In honor of the the Apothecary’s official grand opening this weekend, they’re kindly offering a reader one awesome honey therapy gift pack (valued at $48)! You know the drill: check out the Apothecary’s web site and leave a comment below. Contest closes at midnight Thursday and we’ll announce the winner Friday morning. Good luck!
(The contest is open to anyone in Canada.)
PS – What do you think of our new look? It’s not finished yet but we couldn’t stand the old version any longer.
