We have selected a handful of women owned companies and the things they make and sell for our short and sweet Christmas gift list.

We love each of these women and the wonderful products that they provide.

Great paintings from Driveshed Gallery. Eduarda’s custom dog portraits are great hits…  Yes that is my dog! Hello Sunny!

“The Hormone Diet” by naturopath Dr Natasha Turner. This book will set anyone off on the right path for the new year. “If you want to look fresher, stimulate your metabolism, lose fat, feel calmer, sleep better, get stronger, feel sexier and focus better, gaining control over your hormonal balance is truly the key.”

(and if you live in Toronto, consider a consultation with Dr Turner www.clearmedicine.com)

Wonderful handmade and natural soaps from Ella’s Botanicals. There is nothing funky in these all natural soaps and lotions. We love “Annoint Me” soap and the body lotions. No parabens, no SLS.

Jewellry from Anice Jewellery. Britt also does wonderful custom jewellery if you are looking for something more personal in the new year.

 Arvinda’s: Arvinda’s Curry Masala is the best seller and signature product and can displace any curry “paste” for all curry recipes, but it’s healthier since it contains no oil, additives or preservatives.

Who says Christmas can’t be healthy?

      Preena. Happy new year! Did you see Dr Weil’s recent article on tumeric? Amazing! So I would love to get some of your great spices with a teaspoon or six of tumeric! Cathy
