Two girls creating something beautiful!
A mutual dedication to pet health & wellness was the beginning to a great friendship between Andrea & Tammy - As a small local business creating fine artisan soaps, bath and body products - they are doing it right...without compromise! Handmade in small batches, cruelty free, no animal testing, simple ingredients, sustainable & ethically sourced ingredients supporting other local small businesses. Vegan soap options - eco friendly packaging. Each product is handmade & wrapped by us. Doing it right, without compromise, is the core of who we are & what we stand for.
Andrea Peters and her husband Jeff, along with their 8 rescue dogs live on an acreage just outside Kelowna. With over 30 years’ experience working with holistic modalities including homeopathy, Andrea has extensive pet nutrition knowledge & has dedicated most of her adult life to the overall health & wellness of animals, mentoring many of us along the way. Andrea is the Chairperson of PVCA Animal Rescue Society Canada and also had a holistic pet nutrition store in Cloverdale, BC.
Tammy MacDonald and her husband Kurt, along with their fur baby Maddy live in Calgary – their commitment to restoring Maddy’s health led them to owning not one, but 2 pet health & wellness stores in Calgary. They take pride in sourcing locally & make a conscious effort to support other local small business owners providing quality options that support the pet health & wellness. Tammy has a knack for giving back & paying attention to the little details that matter and make others feel special.
I always joke that she is the master gift-giver. She seriously finds the BEST damn presents… but not just ANY items. She has an eye for things that are unique, handmade, quality and just BETTER. Little things that I treasure and get joy from being around every day!
Both Tammy and Andrea have spent their entire adult lives as part of the corporate world. The GO GO GO theme of the past couple of decades for both of us has been studded with major accomplishments, a ton of work, some heartache and many moments to be proud of…. But it also meant that there were times when we forgot to take care of ourselves the way we could and should have. We know we aren’t alone in that, the pace of this current world sure makes it hard to do!
Giving back & caring for others (and our pets) sometimes validates our purpose. It’s easy to lose sight of ourselves – sometimes we just need a little reminder that we matter!
Our focus is on creating handmade, small batch, nature-inspired recipes that create the items in our line. Using ethical ingredients sourced locally & from Canadian suppliers makes us feel good about what we do. We carry that focus through every detail of the process, including our packaging – we use eco-friendly packaging for our bath bars & re-useable cotton bags & tins for our soaps & tea facials. Every little detail matters and can create a ripple effect.
We want to create products that encourage you to invest in yourself and experience a moment of indulgence. Moments that lead to a theme of deserving, nurturing and being kind to yourself - another ripple effect!
Be inspired to be kind to yourself & pass along the same to others just like you!
Tammy & Andrea
It’s one word and by definition, it’s our “why".
Nour-ish – to provide someone (human or furry!) the things that are needed to live, be healthy and thrive - to cause them to develop or grow stronger.
Is it really that simple?? – the answer is YES!
We have created a collection of “pretty” ... thoughtful gifts for others or for yourself. Things that remind you to take a moment for YOU! It’s the little things that make you smile, the things that bring back a special memory, a gentle reminder that says - YOU matter!
It’s been said, “Happiness is Homemade” - we agree! There’s something about a homemade gift that makes you feel special & appreciated – it’s unique, authentic just like you!
Nour-ish Body, Soul & Pet – luxurious bath & body products, handmade especially for you!
Our soap & bath products are handmade in small batches, with ingredients that are raw, ethically sourced and support other local small & Canadian businesses. Each recipe is carefully created with a purpose – inspired by a moment, a memory, designed to Nour-ish your body & your soul.
Our pets are a very important part of our lives. For us, a pet line was a natural part of this journey - if you have a pup in your family, check out our Nour-ish pet line (coming soon). In our experience, nature can create healing. This is why our pet products are inspired by nature and created to support a holistic approach to pet care.
We still have a few products left from our early summer launch, but we are taking a break on shipping now due to the heatwave and active wildfire situation. Thanks for understanding. :)
