ETHICALLY WILDCRAFTED + ARTISAN DISTILLED HYDROSOLS
North Shore’s hydrosols are all small-batch produced with ethically harvested wildcrafted botanicals. Botanicals are harvested in the Muskoka-Georgian Bay region - Anishinaabek Territory- with love, intention, and great respect for the natural world by me, Lou. Availability of some botanicals may be subject to change due to environmental factors (ex. Wild Roses + LDD Moth or deep frosts).
Also, I’m a darn good deal.
All botanical hydrosols listed below are abundant and/or invasive species (Ontario) and are distilled in a stainless steel distillation system and finished in a copper condenser:
White Cedar, Eastern Hemlock, Scotch Pine, White Pine, White Spruce, Balsam Fir, Sweet Clover, Pin Cherry, Mugwort
The following botanicals require extra care for proper ethical harvesting and processing:
Yarrow, Juniper, Sweet Fern, Sweet Gale
All botanical hydrosols listed below are distilled in a traditional copper alembic still and feature less common (still abundant, but not invasive), time sensitive (spruce tips) or cabin-grown botanicals (sweetgrass, calendula):
Sweetgrass, Wild Rose (Rosa canina + Rosa acicularis), Calendula
