Virtuous Soaps and Stuff



There's a hard-working sea wench in our midst and she's cranking out all sorts of cleaners, for you and your home. Sea Wench Naturals uses wild and organically grown plants (from one of the most stunning gardens in Clayoquot Sound) to create soap, shampoo, body oils, pain salves, body lotion, face cream, and more. And she's also branched out to make a dish soap and a insect repellant ("Bugger Off!") that smells pretty yummy and does a good job, too. The labels are a bit hippie-retro with an ethereal sort of water colour with a wash that makes it look like stain glass. They are certainly authentic Clayoquot Sound and would make a great gift it you are looking for something small, yet representative of Tofino. Sea Wench Naturals are found in many shops in town, including The Shed at the Tofino Botanical Gardens and People's Drug Mart!





2012 Update: Sea Wench Naturals now has a website. Yeah! You can find them here.

  1. I have purchased the dish soap, body oil, and liquid bath soap. I love each of these products, and I will now be heading to Fiber Options in Victoria BC to purchase more!

    Thanks!

  17. My husband and I have sampled a wide array of Sea Wench's products. The facial line is not to be missed - it cleaned, toned and moisturized my skin to perfection, taking off at least five years. My husband is obsessed with the shave products, and he smells incredible after using said products. I feel so fortunate to have found this product line - another reason to love Tofino!
