About Yarrow Valley Essentials
focused on local, natural & low impact
Yarrow Valley Essentials is a small business located in Lumby BC, we make products that are designed to encourage self care and support the local community.
where we began
This small business began during a personal journey for rest while I was going through a very stressful and anxious period of time. I struggled to sleep at night and brush away the ball of anxiety that resided in my stomach, so I started making myself essential oil blends and using aromatherapy to clam my nerves. I found a few blends that I really liked, and started to create self care rituals around the oil rollers. Taking five seconds to breath before starting to work, or focusing on a little temple massage as I went to bed was a really effective way to navigate my way away from the intense stress and anxiety.
I wanted to share these lovely blends with other stressed out babes and so I started a business to make and sell products that encourage self care. We've expanded to include moisturizing bath soaks and other natural local products.
I 2021 we rebranded to Yarrow Valley Essentials from our previous business name, Head Space Babes. All of our products and values remain the same, but with a new name the reflects our dedication to natural ingredients and products local to the Okanagan Valley.
what we believe in
Whether you order online or for pick up, you can be confident knowing that we took every step along the way to bring you a product that is natural, low impact and local. We select our ingredients by carefully and source materials as locally as we can. Many of our products contain ingredients that are hand picked and dried by us, like the dried flower petals in the Bath Soaks.
From materials to packaging we make intentional decisions to reduce our impact whenever we are able to. We recycle packaging materials and source ingredients as locally as we can so that we can reduce the impact that we make as business.
who we work with
We create most of the products that you see on our website but we also carry other local products that we believe in. We wanted to use our online space as a way to extend the reach and accessibility of other small businesses that are making great natural products in the Okanagan.
We currently carry a variety of beautiful handmade soaps by Hygge Soap Co, some handmade scrunchies, and a few handmade macramé plant holders all made by hand and around the Okanagan.
