All things vegan in Muskoka.  Real dining experience reviews, real awesome product highlights and insights into our favorite places to go and experience. 

Since moving to Muskoka, Ontario from the east coast of Canada, we had to discover where to shop, eat and how to live a plant based lifestyle in this gorgeous location. It was fun to discover a new place, but at times challenging to find just where to shop and what to buy everyday that matched our values.
We wanted to create a community resource where others could find guidance, real honest reviews, education, recipes and info on how to live a kinder, healthier life. 

We hope that through creating these tools for you and sharing our story you will feel INSPIRED to make more conscious choices everyday, improving your own life and creating a better world for the animals we share it with.

ALCHEMY NORTH All Natural Cosmetics { Muskoka }


Beautiful All Natural Cosmetics.

Alchemy North was created in 2017 by two amazing women with an idea to bring natural skincare and beauty products to the Northern Ontario. Melodie and Amy are the perfect pair with a clear vision and dedication to ethical natural products. Not to mention they are both really sweet and fun - the kind of women you would want in your pocket of friends.

I first met Amy at an event in Port Carling earlier this year. She had her products on display and we got to chatting. She sent me off with a skincare collection - Moroccan Rose which fits my skin type, which is generally combination or sensitive at times.  (Moroccan Rose Collection pictured to the right)

Their beauty line is 100% Vegannot tested on animals and environmentally         conscious which makes my heart happy!

My absolute favorite of the trio I tried was the Moroccan Rose Facial Bar (For all skin types) 87g 

A beautiful, solid bar that smells like a spa and leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed but not dry. I LOVE this soap and to be honest, it's the best facial soap I've ever tried! Not to mention, how pretty does this look? You can tell they take their products seriously, from research and development of ingredients and materials used, to their trendy modern product labels and brand. These two have immense product knowledge and a great understanding of the cosmetics industry and skin care. Creating skin care is a science and responsibility one should take very seriously and they certainly do.

Exfoliating Mask - Moroccan Rose (for all skin types) 28g

The exfoliating mask comes in a powder form that looks like hot chocolate powder. Mix with water to desired consistency. I found it was just the right amount of grit to exfoliate my face but not strip it dry. A very nice natural feel with a refreshing result.

Oil Cleanser Moroccan Rose (for all skin types) 59ml

I just love the scent of rose in this cleanser - just like a spa in a bottle - so lovely! The cleanser is oil based and a toner is recommended for following up with however I was fine with some hot water in the shower.  

Product Details: This cleansing oil was formulated for dry and sensitive skin-types. The oils chosen for this cleanser aid in helping skin health, reducing acne, restoring the balance of oil production and decreasing the skin irritations that can accompany dry and sensitive skin.
