Vendor Spotlight: Sacred Earth
Like many of our vendors' businesses, Sacred Earth was born at home.
When Laura Forrester began having children, she quickly realized she only wanted to use products on her kids that had ingredients that she could trust. This led her to making her own soap, which she debuted to the public at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival in 1998. Her booth sold out!
She quickly became known for her soap, patchouli cinnamon being a signature scent!
This handmade soap uses the cold process method which retains all of the naturally occurring glycerin in every bar. Glycerin holds moisture so the soap leave your skin fresh and clean, not stripping too many of your natural oils! After the soap is cut into bars, it's cured for at least six weeks.
Sacred Earth kept expanding as Laura joined our market and met her partner Jordan who helped her to branch out to skin care products, bath bombs, beeswax candles and salves!
Their salve is now one of their most popular products! It's made by infusing extra virgin olive oil with nine different healing herbs for at least three weeks. Five of these herbs are harvested right in and around Regina. It also contains beeswax and hemp oil — all natural!
They are a fixture at our market and their products are sold through over 20 other local businesses. In 2013, Sacred Earth Soaps was selected as official suppliers of the JUNO Awards Host Committee!
Today, they still operate out of their home and they are a proud small-batch business.
Any good RFM regular has a favourite scent of Sacred Earth soap! Do you?
