As a young girl in Surrey, Sonia would hand-roll cotton wicks with her mother, who had learned the practice from Sonia's grandmother back home in India. The cotton wicks were used to create tea-lights, intended to burn all day.
Growing up on the Mediterranean coast, Fouad played in a backyard full of olive trees. He remembers operating the olive press with his father and uncle, and always putting aside the last few batches for soap.
With its origins steeped in family tradition, Team Woodlot keeps future generations in mind. That's why each Team Woodlot candle is handmade with care using clean-burning, petroleum-free coconut wax. And why all our soaps are made in small batches with specially-selected local ingredients from our favourite places in Vancouver.
They hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them for you.
