Life is Good!  We are located near Sandy Hook, Manitoba, Canada a few minutes drive from the shores of beautiful Lake Winnipeg in the scenic Interlake.  We live on 40 acres of naturalized prairie grassland and have a great appreciation of natural beauty and all life.  We currently sell and make Natural Soap, market organic teas, herbs and spices and seasonally we open a veggie stand in our yard where we also sell our GMO-free naturally grown vegetables and pickles.

In 2003 we starting making truly Natural Soap with no dyes, preservatives or chemical scents and the Sandy Hook Soap Factory was born.  This involved sourcing botanical and Essential Oil suppliers to make a truly natural product.  We were ecstatic to find a wonderful certified organic, ethically responsible and zero waste company in Mountain Rose Herbs of Oregon.  We have been dealing with them ever since and have always been impressed with the exceptional quality of every product we have ever ordered.  We have never found another supplier with better quality or fresher organic botanical material than Mountain Rose Herbs and we are proud to be Canadian importers of their teas,herbs and spices, making them more accessible for purchase in Canada.

We fully understand the challenge of budgeting for a more natural & organic life and trying to be environmentally responsible as well as sensitive to the plight of workers which share our planet as we have been following similar philosophies for several years.  We strive to keep reasonable prices and sometimes, especially in the case of spices, are less than what you would pay at many grocery stores for non-organic counterparts.  Focusing on minimal packaging in the sustainable cello provides a compostable solution with no need to purchase, dispose of, or to recycle a costly container.
