International Women's Day + some of my favourite Women-owned local businesses

As you know Woven Handmade has always loved supporting women owned businesses and makers. We love the community we have built with some amazing female entrepreneurs and feel grateful to have these relationships.

This year for International Women's Day, we are doing a giveaway on Instagram featuring some of our favourite local female entrepreneurs in town. We love their stories and their products reflect a natural, slow living, holistic vibe - which we love and value. Read on to see who is featured in the giveaway and head to their websites to check out their full offerings.

Thought Sanctuary: Carly Gouweloos is the owner of this funky locally made brand.

They create super-groovy functional aromatherapy oils.

Their high-vibrational oils are inspired by the incredible magic that exists in nature. Sustainability and quality are paramount to the brand – they want their products to feel as good as they smell so they have worked hard to perfect every element of their offering. From sourcing the highest-quality biodynamic, organic and wildcrafted oils to packaging that preserves the bioenergy of the product, they have created the most magical oils possible for you to enjoy.

If you're one of our subscription box members, you'll recognize this amazing product from our first subscription box. This roll on is my absolute favourites, and promotes slow vibes. I use it daily!

Rosewood and Silver: Herbalist Melanie Hill created this amazing local brand with a motto of Herbalism for Everyone, Everyday.

From herbal workshops to customized teas, owner Mel has created such a unique and useful offering. I particularly love her tea club which delivers a new blend of tea monthly that pays close attention to the seasons, and is created specifically for its alignment with the times. Looking to the weather, elemental and astrological influences, growing season, and other worldly inspiration, the blends keep you nourished, keep you curious and fill your cup. It's been so fun to sip on a new, intentional tea each month.

Skin Frequency: Owner Summer has been delivering exceptional holistic facials in Collingwood for years. She is the go-to Collingwood facialist for wonderfully soothing, yet effective holistic facials. The products she uses are always high quality, and this lead her to create her own skin care line Skin Frequency - High Vibe Skincare. The brands mission is "Every drop pure and working for you. We are obsessed with purity, potency, and results with absolutely no compromises to quality."

Check it out!
