Hopefully many of you are finished your holiday shopping, but if not, I’ve got a great place for you to go.
Heck, even if you’re done, I highly recommend popping in and treating your body to a little special something.
If you haven’t heard of Rocky Mountain Soap Co, it’s sort of an everything you need for your body type shop, where all items are covered in beautiful packaging and bright colours.
What you’ll also find, is that in addition to being a local company, its toxin-free movement means that all the products come from mother nature – yep, 100% natural with no synthetic ingredients. If you’re interested in this Toxin Free Movement, you can check out their blurb on it here.
They just opened up a new shop in Market Mall so I popped in to take a peak.
The airy interior – again, made from mostly toxin-free materials – was bright and clean. Exactly what you want when you’re buying body products.
There are shelves of soaps.
Everything you need to take your bubble baths to the next level.
Rows of candles.
And a whole section dedicated to caring for that bright face of yours.
Almost anything can be tested, making sure that customers walk away feeling happy and confident with their purchases.
And they’ve got a whole hand-care bar for those of you feeling the effects of winter dryness.
I picked up a basket and trotted through the store, picking up a few things for myself, and bits and pieces for others.
Watch out – it’s easy to end up with quite a basket full!
After picking out a few items of choice, I packed them into a bag and took them home for testing.
The relax aromatherapy spray. Infused with lavender, I spray a bit on my pillow each night before bed. It really helps me calm down my thoughts and head off to sleep after a particularly trying day.
The foot butter stick. A total miracle worker, it’s stuffed with patchouli and carrot tissue oil. Plus, the stick means that you can load up those cracked heels and dry toes, without having to actually touch them. I lather it on in the morning, slip on a pair of cozy socks, and let it do its trick.
The ginger root + lemon candle. Perfect for relaxing nights at home. It’s got a bit of a kick to wake you up, but isn’t terribly overpowering.
And, the lip butter. Soft and supple, it slides onto my lips and makes them feel smooth again. With scents like vanilla coconut, it’s almost addicting.
They’ve got some pretty excellent gift packages in store, stuffed into white boxes and decorated with hand-painted watercolour designs. Organized by scent or gift-receiver, it’s the perfect option if you need a little help in the gift department.
Plus, there are a few gems for the man in your life, including a shaving bar & rosemary mint shampoo (to stimulate hair growth).
Pop on in and give it a look! The store smells incredible and it’s always great to support local brands. Just be warned, it’s hard not to pick up a thing or two while you’re in there.
