Handmade Soap Bar by Lesley Assu, Haida
"If I could find a soap that describes the tranquility of foraging in the forest this would be the one!" - Lesley Assu
Handcrafted by Haida witch and herbalist, Lesley Assu this creamy, earthy and grounding soap is hard with a rich lather. It has the subtle fragrances of earthy moss, raw soil, warm woods and blowing flowers of honeysuckles, and jasmin. This soap is dressed with foraged ingredients chosen to represent the beauty of the forest, such as blue lichen - the forest healer - and oak mosses from the coast. The bar is nourishing yet detoxifying with clay and arrowroot to polish the skin yet gentle enough for those with reactive/sensitive skin types.
Standing Spruce Farm & Apothecary is an Indigenous Owned and Operated apothecary and farm founded by Haida witch and herbalist Lesley Assu. Traditionally raised in both Haida Gwaii and by her father's community of the We Wai Kai, Lesley developed deep roots to the land and sea. Her passion for traditional medicine making extends into both her farm and apothecary where (along with her family) she produced a wide range of wildcrafted products and remedies; including but not limited to: skin care, healing oils, balms, loose herbs and teas. Their farm aims to provide clean ethical meats, honey and crops not only to their family, but also to friends and their local communities. They raise heritage breed cattle, shetland sheep, pigs and chickens along with their own honey bees and food garden. Their farm is located along the beautiful West Coast of Campbell River in British Columbia.
