Please join us in welcoming Northlore back for another round of the Royal Bison. Instead of rambling on ourselves, it's best to have Saskatchewan-based owner/maker Natassia Brazeau describe her work:
Northlore specializes in small batch, plant-based body care, made with plants that I grow and wildcraft from the forests and prairie grasslands near my home outside of Saskatoon. I use folk methods of extraction such as steam distilling plants in a copper still, and lunar infusing them into oils, to offer the optimum potency in skincare that the plants have to offer.
Northlores formulas are inspired by the wisdom inherent in folk recipes to access the natural, bioactive properties of local flowers, leaves, roots, clays, and salts to heal and nourish our bodies. Crafted in sync with the cycle of the seasons and imbued with the mystical energies of the moon, these earth-based products are meant to inspire rituals in self-care that honour our reciprocal relationship to the land.
Fantastic. Seriously. You'll find Northlore at the December 9-11 edition of the Royal Bison. Until then, follow along on the Instagram!
