INTRODUCING | Woodlot

Over the Rainbow is proud to introduce a Canadian-based brand to our growing apothecary roster. Woodlot was launched in 2015 after co-foudner Fouad Farraj’s move to Canada. After handmaking soaps in Lebanon for 10 years, he noticed his skin reacting negatively to the toxic ingredients found in typical North American body product. Fouad and his partner Sonia Chhiniji began sourcing eco-friendly ingredients and aromatic scents; the first of which were discovered while visiting a “woodlot” in northern Ontario.

Woodlot Recharge Candle

All Woodlot body products are carefully handmade in Vancouver, produced in small batches using locally sourced ingredients. The candles are created with a renewable soy/coconut wax that is GMO / petroleum-free with a cotton core wicks that burns for up to 60 hours. The soaps are mixed with pure essential oils (olive, avocado, cocoa, or Shea butter) that is traditionally air-cured for 6 weeks. Refreshing aromas found in Woodlot products include Wildwoods (balsam/fir/clove), Recharge (peppermint/rosemary), and Cascadia (cedarwood).

Over the Rainbow’s handpicked selection of Woodlot candles & soaps are available in-store and online while supplies last!
