Sample a myriad of local flavours prepared specially for you.
Body lotion, lip balm, bath salts…Any one of those beauty products make the ideal gift… or maybe just to keep for yourself! A number of local companies make excellent products. The following is a sampling.
This enterprise - one of the largest lavender farms in Canada - hardly needs an introduction. It’s known far and wide for the variety of its beauty products – for the bath, the body, the face and even for the home. Bleu Lavande also sells beautiful gift packages – all of them very tempting!
Sea buckthorn, as well as being a nutritious berry, is loaded with vitamins that are very good for the skin. The person behind Mont Écho Naturels, biochemist Bradley Johnson, incorporates these health-giving properties in the manufacturing process, creating a wide range of body products.
At Ste-Anne-de-la-Rochelle donkey farm Les ânes en culotte, you’ll find an array of all-natural beauty products, including small-batch soaps and moisturizing creams. The common link in these artisanal products? Donkey milk, which has a ton of beneficial properties, as a key ingredient. For a unique gift that’s sure to delight, stop by the farm or order online.
A variety of soaps, creams, oils, balms, shampoos and a bunch more things! The site is beautiful, the products hard to resist and the little boutique next door, Gourmet par nature, with its jellies, jams, olive oils and balsamic vinegars, will certainly entice you to stop!
When you walk into this soap making establishment, don’t be surprised if you feel like a kid in a candy store! It’s crammed with little pots, colourful packages and products that smell divine…You probably won’t leave empty-handed!
Here’s an idea for a birthday – a sample of the 1245 Cologne. Carefully formulated on site (it can be worn by men as well as women) it is one of a range of products made by the first perfume factory/boutique in Quebec.
Hair conditioner, cedar and sage soap and unperfumed products, all manufactured to the highest standards.
A personalized perfume makes a lovely gift – either for yourself or somebody else. The owner will guide you through the process of creating the scent you have in mind, during a two-hour workshop. The workshop itself also makes a great gift!
Certain essential oils have cosmetic properties. Zayat Aroma, founded in 1985, sells some 600 products incorporating high quality essential oils, such as floral waters, massage oils, creams and so on.
