WHAT

Woodlot was founded in our home in 2014. Our all natural home and body products are crafted from simple ingredients to inspire wellness, ignite conversation and help you find your daily ritual. We believe that beauty and wellness should be intentional, inclusive and natural.

Our mission is to inspire the replacement of toxic home and body products with natural, effective alternatives that keep our people and our planet top of mind, no matter where in the world you are.

WHEN

We launched Woodlot from our home kitchen in 2014. Prior to launching, we had been sharing our candles and soap bars with friends as gifts. We worked with a friend on coming up with a simple design and packaging and started to share our product collection (at the time 3 scented candles) with our favourite retailers locally and nationally.

WHY

Our customers have fallen in love with our unique scents. Each scent is designed in-house and is inspired by nature, travels or family tradition. We believe our products fit into your daily life and can inspire ritual whether by the strike of a match or stroke of natural lotion on your body.

FAVORITE

S - I use our Rose & Palo Santo mist everyday. I love how this product can be used on face, body or environment when you’re looking for a quick refresh.

F - Our nourishing soap bars. The soap bars are a family recipe. I still remember visiting the olive press with my uncle and learning how to make my first batch of olive oil soap.
