You can keep our communities alive and diverse by purchasing your goods from independent stores. The choice is yours. Earth to Body Natural Skin Care Company’s home base is in Pointe Claire, with our...

The phone is ringing at Earth to Body headquarters. “Hi.  My name is Chris, calling from a correctional centre in northern Manitoba. I came across your website and discovered that you sell shampoo bars. We have been government mandated to switch from liquid shampoo in bottles to an actual shampoo bar. We thought maybe you might have something for us.” He went on to explain. “By law, each inmate...

Earth to body has some pretty amazing employees. Over the years we have had many different people work for us. All of them have either been family or close long time friends. People we trust, people we love and care about us and our family business.  We have thrived because of these hard working, loyal people.  One in particular has given me a story I use to this day in my booth.   Years ago I...

What do you call your mother?  I used to call her Mama, but now I call her Mom.   Why do you love your Mom so much?She is very nice, loving, carefree and way different from other moms in every aspect. She’s willing to go off the grid. I like that she’s different because it makes life more fun and unique.   If you had to describe your mom in one word, what would it be?A Pioneer. Why?Because she...

Natural Skin Care Acne
We have had many memorable encounters over the last 15 years. This one story will stick with me forever.  Such an experience keeps me going and what makes me love what I do so much. It takes place at the Edmonton Butterdome Signatures Craft Show. A Saturday and quite busy. The day just flies by. I finish up with a customer and go to grab a quick break. On my return a young girl comes in. Her...

“Look out! Omygod, IT'S going to cross the road. Slow downnnnnnn!A deer. A deer. Omygod, we almost hit a deer.” “It wasn’t a deer. It was a moose. And it ‘s escaped back into the woods.” Do I argue, discuss, relent?“Are those trees dead from a forest fire or a blight? ““Does a grisly attack us for our meat or because we have crossed into their territory? ““Was that a bald eagle or a huge raven...

lake louise
It’s been almost 40 years since we first visited Lake Louise. It was 1974, travelling in our Westfalia Volkswagen van on a cross Canada, USA and Mexico year long tour. We were young, adventurous and Lake Louise was a calling. The glacial mountains framed a jewel of paradise. And that day the sun blessed us, transforming the glacial waters into a magnificence of turquoise that left us breathless....

Are they communicating though some aura?Through small murmurs and gentle nose touches,where wet kisses know no boundaries?There are no fears. The Splay. A...

Slices of white turkey, left over stuffing and mashed potatos fill my fridge. Warm energies from our last night’s friends still encompass the house. With a family holiday today, life is feeling pretty good. The hot sun shining in October is a bonus I could have wished for. I am still resonating from Thanksgiving dinner. After having had recovered from illness, I am aware of how much our thoughts...
