Vancouver-based brand Woodlot, and their line of products for the home and body, offers a clean aesthetic that mimics the purity of the products inside, not to mention chic! Lovingly handcrafted in small batches from safe and natural ingredients, Woodlot creates their products in a deep-rooted family tradition, but with a modern appeal. Woodlot’s offerings include finely handmade clean-burning candles made from organic coconut wax and non-gmo soy wax, luxurious soaps, floral mists, mineral bath soaks and palo santo bundles.
“With its origins steeped in family tradition, Team Woodlot keeps future generations in mind. That’s why each Woodlot candle is handmade with care using clean-burning, petroleum-free coconut wax. And why all our body products are made in small batches with specially-selected ingredients from near and afar.”
Woodlot’s selection of handcrafted soaps come in seven varieties, Unscented, Original Charcoal, Cascadia, Recharge, Cinder, Amour and Flora. They are air cured for six weeks, and let me tell you they are SOLID and will last you. I was kindly sent the Original Charcoal* and Amour* soaps for review and find myself going back and forth on to which one I prefer, as they are just both so divine. Seriously, these soaps are awesome and I’m considering them both my absolute favorites.
The detoxifying Original Charcoal Soap* features activated bamboo charcoal that works to draw impurities from the pores, a great option for those with problematic skin (i.e backne). I am a huge fan of charcoal and what it does for the skin, and there is just something so enticing to me about dirty-ing up in a lather of charcoal and then rinsing clean. The charcoal additionally creates a gentle exfoliating effect, as a blend of all natural oils and butters leaves skin hydrated. Pure essential oils of vanilla, orange, cedarwood, fir, pine, and eucalyptus lend the soap a fresh scent and subtly so.
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Activated Bamboo Charcoal, Vanilla Essential Oil, Orange Essential Oil, Cedarwood Essential Oil, Fir Essential Oil, Pine Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil
The Amour Salt Bar* is Woodlot’s most recent addition, containing mineral-rich himilayan pink salt (another great detoxifier), white clay, and the essential oils of rose damask, black pepper and palmarosa, which creates a subtle spicy rose fragrance. It is oh-so hydrating and a pure delight.
Ingredients: Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Aqua, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride (Himalayan Pink Salt), Cymbopogon martini (Palmarosa) Essential Oil, Rosa damascena (Rose Damask) Essential Oil, Piper nigrum (Black Pepper) Essential Oil, Kaolinite (White Clay)
“Inspired by our road-trip from Vancouver to San Diego, this is a serendipitous bouquet of bliss and freedom. A mix of patchouli + dense woodsy notes. Alight your sense of adventure. Memories of moments off the beaten track.”
The ever exquisite Cascadia* candle blends together all the enticing aromas of winter. Douglas fir, cedarwood, sandalwood and patchouli create Cascadia’s warming fragrance. The featured notes are pure and true to their origin, so you know that high-quality essential oils are being used. I love this jar and am repurposing it for my cotton buds. It’s a ‘feel-good’ ‘home-for-the-holidays’ fragrance that is not overwhelming. So, if your keen on candles that scent the entire room, you would definitely want to pick up the larger of the two sizes (13.5 oz vs 8 oz), or maybe skip on them. There are eight fragrance options available that all sound incredibly appealing.
